Clean, pleasant staff, good central location on the high street.
Room a bit tired looking. Cream for coffee in the room was out of date. Cold room- the heating had not been put on. Facing bins at back of building & a bit noisy when staff were. Putting the rubbish out.
Burford is a lovely town in the Cotswolds. Also the countryside surrounding it is wonderful, especially in Autumn.
Fantastic breakfast and staff were very helpful and attentive.
The food - both breakfast and dinner was outstanding. The best meals we had in our tour of the Cotswolds.
Service was both willing and charming (though no one offered to carry my case). Excellent breakfast. One could read by bedside lights - a rare pleasure!
Decor a bit shabby and not particularly to my taste. Comfortable first-floor sitting-room had unused look.
Friendly staff & excellent service.Wonderful food. Real ale was a bonus.
