Having read some of the reviews we weren't sure what to expect. However, this is our experience. We had a buyagift voucher and before contacting the hotel had already read the information relating to this hotel regarding which rooms and days it was valid for. With this is mind we contacted the hotel via email to enquire about availability, and...

The hotel is quaint, but does look a little run down from outside. We stayed here using a voucher which was an xmas present. Like a previous reviewer the person I booked with spent more time talking about t & c's of the voucher rather than enthusing about the hotel. Having said that we spent an enjoyable night there. The...

This B & B is located in a small village in the Cotswolds..Parking was available off-site for an added fee. The room we were allocated was quite small, the bathroom was tiny and very poorly lit. Breakfast was in an on-site restaurant run by individuals managing the operation for an absentee owner. Breakfast was very good, and a small supper...

Thank you for your comments. The room this guest chose is our smallest room and the lowest priced - this is a reflection of the room size. All images shown on our very recently (April 2014) updated website have been shot in 2014 and are current. We are currently in the process of fully refurbishing this room - expected to...

Great location right in the middle of this lovely unspoilt village. We had a very romantic old room in the roof of this venerable building, with views over the roofs to the countryside. The room was a superior, good size fitted between the beams and rafters, and well-equipped. We packed on the street right opposite but you might have to...

The person who took our booking (with a gift voucher) was a bit grumpy - pointing to the small print of the voucher conditions rather than making us feel he'd like to host us. The room (New England) had old-fashioned character. Comfortable bed and adequate shower-and-wash room - only adequate as squeezed into existing room, and small. The room was...

Thank you for your review. It is correct that there was a problem with our heating on one of the nights of your stay. As soon as we knew that the heating was not working we got our engineer in the following morning and the problem was rectified by 10AM. I was away at the time and my staff should...

We've just come home from a few days away in Painswick, we stayed in this little place, what a lovely guest house, each room has its own style ours was Country Rose. The bathroom although small, had everything you'd need and the shower was wonderful, very uncomplicated even I could use it without calling my husband first.lol. The staff were...

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely guest house. It is very well looked after, with great people doing that great job. The room we had, New England was very nice and well maintained. The location was beautiful, with such beautiful views. This is a place that we would love to visit again.

Having stayed in so many 'plastic hotels' and samey chains, with their corporate decor and predictable service, the Cardynham House was a real breath of fresh air. Wonderful welcome, the quirkiest hotel we've ever stayed in, and just wonderful. It felt as though we were staying at a friend's house ... totally relaxed, friendly and lovely. The staff - who...

We arrived last Friday for two nights and found the staff very friendly and offering a warm welcome. We booked a table for two in the bistro that evening. We both had three courses from an excellent selection of set menu and specials which included some interesting choices like wildboar and a game trio. The food was exceptional with very...

We stayed at the Cardynham last weekend for 2 nights. My partner had booked the pool room as a surprise for my 40th birthday. We were not disappointed. As soon as we arrived our bags were wrestled out of our hands as we were shown to our room and given instructions on using the pool. The room was lovely, warm,...
