Red Lion Inn, pub and brewery near Cotswolds

Posted Dec 21, 2015
Pros: The room was cozy, the TV had lots of channels. The breakfast was excellent! The beer garden was picturesque.
Cons: It would be great if there was dedicated parking for guests of the Inn. As the pub is quite popular, I imagine many patrons took up the spaces. WIFI!!
Location: The High Street is really nice. We had dinner at a nearby Thai restaurant, easy walking distance. Tesco across the street.
My wife and I were looking for a hotel near Swindon, as we were touring the Cotswolds. The Red Lion Inn looked very charming, so we decided to give it a shot. When we entered the pub, it was packed! A lot of the town locals frequent the pub. After finding the bartender, we were checked in and shown our room. Behind the pub, there is a beer garden and their own brewery. Our room was directly across from the brewery. Complimentary water, teas/coffees and some biscuits. Good bathroom facilities with a full bathtub and shower, and a shower curtain that goes all the way across, so you don't get the wet floor that so many of the half shower curtains in Europe lead to. The bed is super cozy and gets nice and warm, which was nice, as we visited the weekend before Christmas. The bed is a bit narrow, so you won't have enough room to roll around with two people in it. Also, no wifi! Breakfast was amazing. They have a lot of locally grown food and the meat is locally sourced. Their sausages are soaked in their brewery beer. As the pub was very popular, on the Saturday night that we stayed there, it was fairly noisy into the night. We were able to sleep through it, but if you're a light sleeper, this may keep you from selecting this hotel. Otherwise, I would recommend it and come again. I really hope it has wifi by then!

Everything I expected in an old English town

Posted Nov 1, 2015 on Hotels
While in London for business I wanted to get out of Dodge for the more relaxed old English towns in the Cotswolds and stumbled on this place on hotels.com. So glad I did! Great old stone pub and inn exactly how I imagined the old English countryside to be. Old exposed stone walls and wood beams. Great free full breakfast made to order. Bath towel warmer in large bathroom and pants/ shirt steamer/ pressed in room. They brew their own award winning beers on site. And a nice ivy lined outside courtyard. Didn't get much time to see town in daytime but inn was great!
