My visit to the Kings Arms was a quick over-nighter between destinations around the Cotswold.

We had a very enjoyable stay. Staff friendly and helpful. Great location within town and for many attractions within the area. Rooms comfortable, clean with good facilities. Hotel very old with a lot of character but beware lots of steep stairs. Would go back.
