The service we received was second to none. All the staff went out of their way to make my stay special The food was excellent and the thoughtful staff even brought out a birthday decorated dessert as a surprise The only slight disappointment was our room which was a garden room it had a beautiful view, but needed some attention...

My mother used to work at The Bay Tree Hotel in the early 1980s so we visited the hotel for lunch. The Hotel manager was wonderful - he chatted at length with my mother about her experiences there and then brought photocopies of a newspaper report about the hotel from the time she worked there - made her day! The...

Having stayed here previously my review benchmarks this hotel against itself. I was allocated an awful attic room with an almost vertical staircase access, unwilling to accept this I ended up in the sister hotel next door. The hotel was very full with a poorly managed car park it was challenging to get parked. The food (having previously been lovely)...

We recently took advantage of an "offer" of a two night stay here and booked up with friends. From the check in, through the rooms, the restaurant, public rooms, everything was superb. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. We hadn`t expected great rooms since we were on a special offer, but they were beautifully appointed and...

My wife and I have stayed at The Bay Tree Hotel before, along with several other hotels in the Cotswold Inns group, but this one is definitely our favourite. Staff here are wonderful, nothing is too much trouble, and the accommodation, food, ambience and location are excellent. We had an overnight stay for our birthdays (mine Feb 18th and my...

What a beautiful place to stay. We stayed at the Bay Tree as a birthday treat. The hotel was perfect, very cosy snug rooms with open fires, the staff were very friendly. We weren't going to eat in the restaurant as my partner wasn't over keen on the restaurant, but after talking to the manager, who arranged to change the...

We got married at the Bay Tree in July 2015 and recently returned for a two night stay. The hotel is beautiful and every room we have stayed in has been fantastic. We most recently spent one night in Oak and then a night in Sycamore. Oak is my favourite room (it's the top room in the hotel - the...

Thank you for your kind feedback of your recent dinner in the Woolsack Bar. I am thrilled to hear that you have found our food and service excellent and thank you for being understanding of the slight delay in service due to our main restaurant being full that evening. Our bar and kitchen team are very grateful for the recognition...
