Positive Reviews

Functioning well.

The venue is well used to staging and catering for conferences, meetings, weddings and social events. These run like clockwork; staff are smart and attentive - even when extremely busy. It's not surprising that the hotel is so popular in the region, as a base for business and leisure events.

Comfortable accommodation.

Of course you can get something more luxurious, but accommodation here is clean and contains many of the extras we've come to expect. Breakfast and dinner menus are tempting and well executed. All in all, it's a great place for a break away from it all

Location wins the day.

Where else can you relax in rural Gloucestershire… and have the opportunity, ‘on the doorstep', for a few rounds of golf! Nothing is absolutely unique, but this place is highly unusual and well worth a visit.

Negative Reviews

Staff lacks direction.

Food is good and well presented, but service is dire - with staff members appearing not to know what is going on.

It must be wonderful to work here

It's like a staff social club. Here they are, enjoying free drinks and getting louder and more foul-mouthed as the night wears on. This isn't an acceptable environment for paying guests. A reasonable policy- and one that's adopted quite widely- is: if you are on duty, you don't drink. If you are off-duty, you'll darned well pay for your drinks and any guest complaint will result in you being denied this privilege.

Gloucestershire peace & quiet?

The floor boards creak like there's no tomorrow, the loo flush and extractor are astonishingly noisy and walls are paper thin, so you hear everything that's going on around you. Next time, try the middle of Birmingham for a quieter break.
