I may be biased but the restaurant in the Bay Tree is truly excellent. I say biased because this was where, eight years ago, my wife and I were married. On that day, the kitchen served 80 guests a first class meal with every appearance of proficient ease. Since then, the restaurant has had a makeover. It was always a... More

Stayed for a two night break. The quality of food, room and service were excellent. We would recommend it as an ideal place to explore the Cotswold's.

We were staying at the hotel on a minibreak and a dinner was included in the deal. It was wonderful. Apart from a couple of dishes that were extra for ev eryone, we could choose anything on the menu. I think we all had different things and we all raved about them all. Lovely service too.

We were at a Wedding here on 29 December - what a beautiful venue and location - the whole day ran smoothly and efficient - the staff were all perfect - the wedding dinner in the afternoon was exceptional - we will try to stay at The Bay Tree ourselves in the future, it was that good an experience.

We visited the Bay Tree Hotel as it was dog friendly and we wanted a light lunch. Light it was indeed and we had to wait a very long time for it to arrive. I had the quiche of the day and it was miniscule with just a few salad leaves on the side. Very poor value at £8.95. My... More

We stayed at the Bay Tree Hotel for 2 nights and dinner was included for one of the nights. The restaurant is lovely and the staff were very polite and attentive. The food was excellent but not exceptional hence the rating. I would however highly recommend eating here, we intend going back to enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, surroundings and food.
