Bathroom was large and Bed was comfortable. 3. The room service dessert was amazing. Cons:1. We waited 10 mins upon arrival for someone at reception to show up. We... More

My wife and I stayed at the Cricklade when walking the Thames National River Path and found Cricklade House a little too far off the path.

Yet another stay here at one of our favourite places over many years. It's just a shame that, as previously reported, there's an air of inevitable decline if there's no more investment and refurbishment. This is meant to be constructive as we want to keep coming back!!
