Impressive hotel in amazing groundsPosted Oct 28, 2013
Pros: Its history, charm, excellent levels of service, good food, surrounding grounds and excellent value for money.
Location: Climb to the top of Bredon hill for breathtaking 360degree views.
the grounds of this old country house are breathtaking. the house itself has been sensitively converted into a hotel. It doesn't seem to have lost any of its history or charm in its new role. It's connection with the post office workers union are most interesting. We were very pleasantly surprised at the value for money.

Peaceful perfectionPosted Aug 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
The wow factor is there as you pass through the gates. Superb location in beautiful surroundings. Black swans on the lake typify a unique country manor.

Looked better than it wasPosted Aug 10, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel looks magnificent driving up and the lobby is very nice. Walking to the rooms, there is the smell of dust and mold and our room, while a nice large family room, had mold all over one wall. The room is fine for the price, but don't do the dinner - overpriced and not very good at all. We paid almost as much for the prixe fix menu dinner as we did for the night in the hotel. It was a novelty for a night, but I wouldn't go back.

Cool Experience - Gorgeous HotelPosted Aug 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
It's all about the experience. Cons: a little tired decor - don't expect brand new lamps and gorgeous antiques, but it was nicely decorated and the bathroom was new. The hotel is big so it's like a maze inside and you have to go through about a million fire doors to get to your room. Pros: Gorgeous surroundings, but also a bit out of the way from the cities. We went on a run in the morning along the sheep path and through a forest. It's about the best way to experience the Cotswolds landscape. Breakfast was good, staff nice and the view was astounding. Loved the experience of it.

Fantastic location....but sadly dated insidePosted Aug 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
On a positive note, the location is superb. Great views of the Cotswold countryside, peaceful surroundings and within easy reach of Cheltenham, Evesham and Stratford. However the property is dated, fusty and in bad need of decoration inside. Really, it is. We were a family stopping there but we noticed the rest of the guests were mainly elderly.The ensuite bathroom was recently refurbished and was excellent. However, in the main bedroom the wallpaper was coming off the wall and when we opened up the kettle it was blue moulded! The breakfast was ok but not up to the standard of premier inn/ holiday inn express. If a big investor had a couple of million to invest, this would go from a dated 3 star to a superb 5 star hotel.

Great settingPosted Jul 26, 2013 on Hotels.com
Had a lovely stay and would recommend it to others. Had afternoon tea on the terrace followed by a walk round the lake. Lovely villages and pubs near by for getting out and about. Only downside was that there was no air con or fans at all so the room was incredibly hot all night with only one window able to be opened. Appreciate the heat wave is rare and the building is old / 3 * but with that it would have been perfect.

magnificent house on the edge of the cotswoldsPosted Jul 19, 2013 on Hotels.com
the dumbleton was a magnificent home on the edge of the cotswolds. easy location for peace and quiet and quite convenient to touring this beautiful region. a much better value than staying in the cotswolds themselves! the bar & restaurant staff were both friendly and helpful. the facility is in relatively good keep for its historic age. it could use a bit of updating but is more than fine for a short stay. the rooms are of ample size with lovely views of the rolling countryside.

world class hotelPosted Jul 17, 2013 on Hotels.com
Fantastic stay with the family. Updated rooms in a magnificent setting. Our bathroom had a broken lock but otherwise cannot think of anything negative. Highly recommend!
