“Thank you Bay Tree”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

We were married at The Bay Tree on the 31st March and had an amazing day thanks to the excellent service of the staff from the hotel. From Maureen arranging the wedding through to the early hours of 1st April, the staff could not have done more or been more helpful. A special mention must go to both Quintin and Chris, the managers on the day. So many of our guests commented on how superb the food was and what a beautiful venue. Breakfast was also excellent. The bridal suite was just a fantastic place for all of the girls to get ready in and the bed was the most comfortable ever! I wish I could do it all again.

We were totally taken aback when shown to our room. The charming flagstone entrance led to the three rooms in the suite - a spotless bathroom with luxury toiletries, a huge bedroom with the biggest bed I've ever slept in and a wonderfully cosy lounge with an enormous stone fireplace. The staff were very professional, helpful and extremely friendly. We'd like to send a special thank you to Chris who was a dab hand at fire lighting! We were delighted with our dinner. The little extras such as complementary canapes were a really nice touch. Breakfast was delicious with quality local ingredients and plenty of variety. We really couldn't rate our stay more highly and look forward to returning.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Tanfield suite and would definitely book the same room again.

Just returned from a wedding and weekend stay at this wonderful hotel. Full of character and located in a charming little Cotswold town. The Customer Service was excellent - unobtrusive yet professional and we were well looked after from start to finish. The wedding went smoothly and a good time was had by all. The garden provided an excellent location for photos and luckily the rain stayed away. Our room (Walnut) was very good, comfortable and clean - my only complaint was that the location of the power socket was away from the mirror which made it awkward when using a hair dryer - important when you are staying for a wedding! Quality and choice of food was excellent, wonderful breakfast! Overall, we had a brilliant weekend.

Have visited this lovely old Cotswolds Hotel many times for a few days "chill-out". Great location in the centre of Burford, Gateway to The Cotswolds, with hotel private parking. Nicely decorated and furnished throughout with a lovely dining room with great food (innovative but with reasonable portions) at a reasonable price. The walled garden is a feature and a little oasis of calm. We particularly like the small residents lounge stocked with plentiful books, newspapers, magazines (and a roaring open fire in Winter) where we usually relax with our after dinner coffee. The staff have always been helpful and friendly.
Tip: Look at their website to see what offers are available and quote this if booking by phone.
Would always return

Room Tip: Rooms in the main building are probably nicer than the annexe

We called here for lunch which arrived with the wrong vegetables. They arrived with the veg for another dish. Not wanting to complain we presumed the kitchen had run out. When the waiter checked with the kitchen he said they had put the wrong ones on. I said we had eaten there before & thoroughly enjoyed it. Now anyone can make a mistake but it,s how they try to put it right We weren,t expecting a free meal but all we had was a verbal apology. So we would think twice about going there again

For anyone looking for a quiet stay in a pretty Cotswold village, try The Bay Tree. Log fires, character filled rooms, good food and excellent service.

Room Tip: Ask at reception

We stayed here for three February nights -- Sunday Monday and Tuesday -- for a short winter break. The room was especially comfortable (it had a half-tester bed) and the restaurant superb. I can't praise the food and the service enough and the wine list, though a little limited, was good enough. On one of the evenings, we ate in the bar and had slow-roasted duck leg -- yum! The breakfasts were also very good, offering anything you wanted.

The bar and the small library both have blazing real log fires, which make the whole place toasty warm and cosy.

The staff were all pleasant, helpful and, most importantly, cheerful. One got the impression that they definitely enjoyed working there and this all made for a happy and relaxed atmosphere.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Beech room is the one with the half-tester but, although it has a window, has no direct sunlight.
