Pre Christmas Break

Brian, Hertfordshire, stayed: December 2018

Lovely hotel; only issues were that we were not given the table we thought that we had reserved (twice) in the Beaufort Restaurant . Also, we had to ask for the fire to kept alight in the Drawing Room after dinner, which the receptionist did with reluctance. It almost seemed that staff or management wanted to close down the Drawing Room after early evening, for example used gin and tonic glasses had not been cleared away when we returned to the Drawing Room after dinner looking forward to a roaring log fire ( which was eventually provided). There was obviously a management issue concerning how the Drawing Room was staffed .
We wondered why we could t reserve a table of our choice being told that they usually fill up the tables from the windows outwards.
Our Silkwood Room was stunning which will attract us to return whilst the food in the Beaufort Room for dinner and breakfast was excellent .

A great birthday present (if tricky to wrap)

Chris, Leicestershire, stayed: December 2018

Whilst planning my wife's 40th, I thought it would be nice to find us a place to stay that was grander than our normal choice of hotel and offered some great food in a special setting.
The Hare and Hounds turned out to a fantastic choice. Set in a lovely location, with friendly staff, wonderful food and spacious, comfortable rooms. I'll certainly be staying there again. Hopefully before my wife turns 80.

embecmom, stayed: November 2018

Great little hotel, made all the better by the friendly staff who could not do enough to help, but not intrusive. Rooms were decent size and comfortable. Food was good perhaps a little on the pricey side for the menu. Hotel was beside the stunning little town of Tetbury which is a walk away. would stay again.

Relaxing escape

Nick, Northamptonshire, stayed: October 2018

We had a single-night stay and found everything exceeded expectations - proximity to a main road (that was a slight concern before we went) was not noticeable, the room and the service were both exceptional. All my pre-arrival requests were carried out (things like Champagne and flowers in the room). We both felt very relaxed through what was a flying visit really. The restaurant was lovely although the menu choice was on the small side.
Overall a lovely relaxing experience. We will be going again.

Home from home, the Hare and Hounds has it all.

JB, Leics, stayed: April 2018

This is the third time we have stayed at the Hare and Hounds, which rather says it all. We like the ambiance, its always welcoming, warm, and cosy. The staff are informative and helpful.
I love the breakfasts. One morning I had avocado toast with a poached egg on top, delicious.
We love visiting Tetbury, which is a few mlles down the road, and Westonbirt which is virtually next door. We will be back.

lovely hotel.

MW, Avon, stayed: November 2017

An excellent stay, despite the weather - it rained all day on the Saturday which was a shame but obviously no-one's fault! The hotel was lovely. Our one tiny negitive was the bar meal, which we had on the first night, but this was more than made up for by the restaurant meal on the second night. That was stunning. In retrospect, we should have eaten there on both evenings.

Excellent romantic stay in the beautiful Cotswolds

Christopher O, Surrey, stayed: October 2017

This was a lovely package that included 2 nights in this beautiful country hotel. The location was great - a mere 8 -10 minute walk from Westonbirt Arboretum - which was a truly divine experience. We (my partner and I) got lost in nature's beauty and explored the widely diverse selection of trees on display. The hotel is also a short drive away from the charmingly quaint town of Cirencester with its numerous charity shops and infamous amphitheater. This made for a very nice day trip.

The hotel was lovely with very friendly and helpful staff. The dinner was exquisite and the off the menu breakfast also provided a wide option of culinary delight to set you off on your day. The only downside I would say was that it was a tad bit on the pricier side. But this is only a slight downside.

I would love to visit again and would recommend this this as a nice romantic trip for couples.
