Visited with friends on a Secret Escapes deal which was excellent value.
What a quintessential gem of a place Burford is! Gorgeous quaint Cotswold stone houses in a village packed with charm and character. Nestling in the midst of the High Street is The Bull Inn, a 15th Century Coach House, bursting with character and history.

The staff were so warm and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms nicely furnished and comfortable but it is,a very old building with quaint passages and stairs.

Food was excellent. Good choice of menu with very generous portions and breakfast one of the best selections we've seen. The fresh honeycomb was a particularly nice touch.

There is a very small car park at the rear of the hotel but access is quite different especially if you have a larger vehicle. However, there is a free car park within easy walking distance as well as plenty of on street parking so wasn't a problem.
Highly recommended. Will definitely return!

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms at the rear were quieter.

Lovely few days in Burford. The Bull's staff are so welcoming, considerate, polite and friendly. With our dog in tow, we were shown where we would eat (comfortable area before the main restaurant) so we could keep him close. The room was lovely, if the bathroom a little tired but clean. The al a carte food, from my husbands point of view, was amazing. I enjoyed what I had but as a lover of a more plain diet, I would have liked the bar menu to have been available. Breakfast was superb. The full English was generous with not a hint of grease on the plate. Coffee and toast was supplied as much as you wanted. A special mention to Hannah and Jenny who fussed over us and the dog.... perhaps a little more over the dog!! Thanks to all. Would definitely recommend The Bull.

The red brick facade stands out amidst the dominant Cotswold cream but does not detract from the rich historical features of the area. Earlier residents of the hotel included Charles ll & Lord Nelson.Due to age of building floors are warped & creaky.
Since its coaching inn days it has been brought into the 21st century.
As a town Burford is worth including on an historical tour. Cromwell used the parish church as a prison holding a large group of Levellers.

Room Tip: Due to steep stairs accessing top floor bedrooms could be difficult

Stayed here one night on our driving holiday through the Cotswolds. It's right on the High St in Burford so very convenient and also has a great sense of history complete with sloping ceilings and creaking floors!

We were in the Queen Anne room which was generously sized. Didn't have dinner here but thought the breakfast absolutely excellent and good value - fantastic spread of cold items like fruit, pastries, cereal, sticky muesli and also hot items cooked to order.

Beware very limited parking onsite so you may have to find a spot on the high st yourself - the town can get quite busy depending on time of day.

Happily recommend!

As a dog owner it's wonderful when our dog is welcomed with the same enthusiasm and courtesy as we were! Few hotel managers would take time to reach down,offer treats and provide the option for us to enjoy dinner and breakfast with our dog in a comfortable area adjacent to the main restaurant. Indeed, all the staff were 'dog friendly' and made a big fuss of our little Wesiie.
Perhaps our room in the courtyard was 95% in terms of housekeeping but the hospitality was 100%
Highly recommend to dog owners
