Enjoyed 2 nights at this lovely hotel. It was all really pretty and looked very festive. We loved all the little snug seating areas and the spa was fantastic. The purpose of our trip was Christmas shopping and the Lygon Arms was right in the centre of broadway. As mum uses a wheel chair it made it easy for me...

Charming building with some amazing history attached to it. The spa was lovely as was some drinks by the open fire. However, the modern "Cosy" rooms are very tired and are in some desperate need of some TLC. Me and the wife don't get away often due to 2 young children, but when we do we like to book something...

Dear old friend, I have reviewed you before, but sad to say there is nothing new I can say which is positive. Your old parts are still, well, old (and beautiful with it.) so no change there. Please stay old.You are good at that. Your great hall service completely failed to deliver because you were full. Again no change there....

This is such a characterful property full of history, having had many famous guests, it is in a wonderfully central location. Service was very good everywhere you went from the reception to the restaurant and so on. Rooms were shall we say unique, from four poster beds creaking floor boards uneven floors, mullioned windows, ancient but effective heating systems, combined...

Our party of four had a lovely lunch in quiet, elegant surroundings in this beautiful old hotel. The service was attentive and the quality of food excellent. They catered very well for my friend who can only eat gluten free food, which was much appreciated. Certainly not cheap but well worth the extra cost compared to other restaurants in Broadway....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine a hotel where roaring log-burning open fireplaces hint at its roots dating from the 1300's. Picture a Great Hall Restaurant with a vaulted ceiling and original wood panelling built in the seventeenth century. Visit a hotel that has been coloured by the characters of history. At The Lygon Arms, with its 78 rooms you can stay in the suite that King Charles I once stayed in the night before the Battles of Worcester in 1651. See the carvings of John Travis' name on the arch of the front door, etched into the hotel's history in 1620. An historic hotel in the heart of Broadway with a typically Cotswolds history. Dine in The Great Hall, Barringtons our typical all day dining brasserie or have lunch, a coffee or a Cotswold Gin and Tonic in one of our many lounges. A spa , swimming pool and The Lygon Gardens await you but most importantly the team look forward to welcoming you. . ... more   less
