Visited around midday. Nice surroundings in the bar area. Also lounges to sit in also. Food served in the bar area, seats bit hard no cushions. There is a sofa. But too low to eat comfortably. Had the cold meats sharing platter. A bit expensive for what you get. Service excellent staff attentive and friendly. Have visited there many times...

The service was brilliant, the team were very attentive and nothing was to much trouble. The room was clean, comfortable and quite even though it was near reception. The location was perfect for a wedding or any celebration, there's so much to see and so much history. The only down side was the cost of the drinks were a little...

Stayed for a couple of nights with friends. Lovely hotel, we had a very large room with a sitting area and a beautiful ensuite. Afternoon tea was very nice and to much for us all to eat. A walk up to upper slaughter was very enjoyable and lower slaughter is extremely pretty. Good weekend break, would definitely go again.

Excellent 2 night couples mini break for New Year's Eve. Included gala dinner NYE Amy dinner with Magician (excellent) the following night. Whole experience was 5 star and most enjoyable. Nice area for day time walks. Breakfast a little chaotic, believe staff had led them down. Ladies please note they don't supply any hair conditioner

The hotel was lovely , food excellent but we felt it was rather overpriced ( we were on a Spring offer). Having said that Spring is probably high season but even so it was an expensive two days.

Thank you for your feedback. Our Spring Blooms Offer has proved to be very popular this year, and saves £30.00 from the normal Dinner, Bed & Breakfast tariff, as well as a complimentary glass of champagne each with dinner. Our cottages are fantastic for guests needing a little extra space, particularly with two little furry friends in tow! I have...

To celebrate our anniversary, my other half and I thought it would be lovely to spend a couple of nights at the Slaughters Country Inn. We’d visited the Cotswolds before, staying at a lovely pub - The Keepers Arms in Quenington and eating a fab meal at The New Inn in Coln. Having high hopes for another great stay, we...

The room was spacious and comfortable and dinner each night was very enjoyable. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The location is lovely and we enjoyed the walk into Bourton on the Water following the river.
