On a recent long weekend break to Bourton On The Water we stayed at The Lansdown Hotel. We booked a double en-suite room that actually had a king size bed. The room was large and airy with a comfortable bed. Tea and coffee making facilities were also available as well as a fresh bottle of water. The owners are very...

We were really impressed at the quality of this B&B- the decor is really lovely; it feels both modern and cosy. The breakfast selection and quality was excellent- Eggs Royals, smoked salmon & scrambled eggs on an English muffin, bagels & full English. Anthony & Cheryle are very welcoming and we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed in this excellent B&B for 2 nights. We were given one of the refurbished room (room 4) which was lovely. In particular, the room has a Cotswolds Stone wall which really added character. Our room faced the road, but traffic noise isn't a problem in Jan. Good location to explore other towns/villages in Cotswolds. Toiletries provided are of...

Just returned from a weekend break from this lovely B&B. Cheryle and Anthony were great hosts, offering a welcoming cup of tea/coffee when we arrived and letting us know the good places to eat and drink. Great size room and ensuite. Breakfast is really the highlight of staying here. The food is really fresh and Anthony was so helpful. Great...

Just returned from a couple of nights in this B&B. It is a lovely place with friendly & helpful management / owners. The breakfast room, hallway and residents lounge appear to have been recently refurbished to a high standard. The breakfast menu was very varied and the food was of high quality. My wife had a special dietary request which...

This was our first visit since the change of ownership. It was my 'special' birthday weekend and the very first time without the kids, so we chose to stay in one of the refurbished rooms (double superior) It was delightful. Nice big comfortable bed, immaculate furnishings and a spacious and modern bathroom. The heating wasn't on during the day which...

We stayed at The Strathmore for 3 nights in early January and found everything to be of a very high standard and would rate them more as a boutique hotel rather than just a B&B. On arrival we had tea and biscuits whilst Anthony told us about the area, recommended places to visit, gave us a route that we could...

Where shall I start? If it were just a 3 star I wouldn't have expected much, but I do expect more if you are going to display 4 stars on your sign. The rooms: very basic, mattresses are cheap, you can feel the massive springs even through the thin pillow top. Both beds in my room and also in my...

Yes you're right where should I start? I will reply so that our good readers can absorb with interest. Most of your comments are false as you well know...... apart from the misunderstanding about our lounge area. When you booked the rooms you mislead me to think that you were a group of regular guys getting together to plan a...

Stayed in early December, greeted by Cheryl who was friendly and helpful. Lansdowne is ideally located 300 yards from the centre. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, nothing was too much trouble for Anthony. Would liked to have given 5 stars but for 2 minor niggles....the ceiling above room 2 creaks quite badly ( either that or...
