We were given a room that didn't even lock!!! When we complained we were not even offered a decent discount on the room!! Should not even be selling a... More

Poor accommodation. A "family suite" with a second bedroom for my teenage children that was far too small. We had informed the tenant licencee of the children’s ages and their room contained a small put-you-up bed, wedged against the sink and two other beds, one of which was blocking the fire exit. Disgusting smell of cigarette smoke coming from a... More

I needed to have a break away after an extremely busy year. I booked a room at The Bull as it was so reasonable. I then saw on trip advisor that there were less than favourable reviews. I was apprehensive to say the least, but upon arrival the lady behind the bar was very accommodating checking me in. The room... More

Booking was easy and when we arrived we were warmly welcomed and check in and shown to our room. *There are quite a few single or small flights of steps around the hotel so if you have difficulty with steps, this isn't the place for you.* With that aside we had a lovely stay in this 15th century hotel, don't...

Had a lovely weekend planned to show my partner the delights of the Cotswolds. Having stayed at the Bull several times with my parents around 10 years ago and finding it a comfortable and friendly place to stay it was my first choice when looking for hotel. I was therefore extremely disappointed to find the room I booked in a... More

This Hotel needs funds spent on it as it could be amazing. Very friendly people working there. Fairford is such a beautiful Town in the heart of the Cotswolds. Amazing walks and great pubs! I would say this Town is a must when going to the UK.

Our party popped in to the Bull for a meal over the Royal International Air Tattoo weekend in July. We all enjoyed the food and ale, the service was good and the staff polite. We will be back next year.

The checking was very efficient and friendly. And all the staff was warm and good tempered with genuine smile, reflecting the heartiness of the cotswold. We arrive late and the kitchen was apparently close few minute earlier, but still they accepted our order and feed us with a memorable beef cheek, I still salivate thinking about it. Our room was...

I must say how disappointed we were with the Bull Hotel Fairford.. we found the hotel and decided to go in and let them know we had arrived as we had had no confirmation from them, and to be fair we hadn't called to say we were on our way - this was at about 11.45 - there was a... More
