Positive Reviews

Charming rooms in a peaceful beautiful location.

The rooms and cottages are delightful blends of 15th century history and modern design. Quaint décor reflects the country setting, and there's a lot of intention put into creating a comfortable and relaxing ambiance. With lovely views of the gardens and Burford atmosphere, you feel like you're in another world.

Staff are an absolute pleasure to interact with.

Staff are always ready to handle requests, and they attend to them as quickly as possible. They're available to help with reservations, tickets, transport, and anything else you may need during your stay. They're also nice and fun to chat with, and a great source for learning know more about the area.

Delicious breakfast is a great start to the day.

Lamb Classic Inn has wonderful breakfast options that set a great tone for starting the day. The dishes are made to order, and include a lot of ingredients from neighbouring farmers, butchers, and vendors. Even the continental options are ample, fresh, and varied enough to present a well prepared morning meal.

Negative Reviews

Rooms are overpriced for not having many extras.

The cost of the rooms should either be lower, or there should be more extras added, to create more of a balance between amenities and price.

Meals are too costly and not particularly special.

Lunches and dinners receive fair reviews for the quality, but that's not enough to make the meals worth while. The prices are still considered too high, and the portions not as generous as preferred. Although the menus have lovely options, there's nothing outstanding from other inns that serve food.

Steep stairs can be a problem for some to climb.

If you find stairs a challenge, request a ground floor room. The stairs here are steep, and may be tiring to navigate.
