This gorgeous manor and its cottages on well-manicured grounds are perfectly suited for a quiet yet pampered getaway to one of the most picturesque regions of the Cotswalds. The village of Castle Combe (right outside the manor's gate) is an easy stroll among well preserved homes and a cathedral dating back to the 13th century. The staff is attentive and the quality at the manor is nothing short of world-class. We stayed in one of the cottages which was well-appointed and included a very large master bathroom. This place takes you back several centuries, and does so in style. Other well-known attractions are not too far away such as Stonehenge, Bath, etc. but there are also plenty of lesser-known destinations throughout Wiltshire for those bent on exploring away from conventional "tourist traps". All in all, we had a great time, even despite the constant rains of November. The fireplaces in the lobby and bar are perfect for warming up and relaxing with a well-prepared drink, or two, at the end of the day. Highly recommend!
Recent, purpose built, avenue of rooms provide a very high standard of accommodation. This is then complemented by a characterful pub with a superb menu and brilliant cooking, both for breakfast and for main meals. Serving staff were friendly and attentive and Mike the receptionist and maitre d' looked after us extremely well. We were delighted by our stay.

Essentially a very nice hotel with pleasant staff. Reception facilities are a little odd being in a sort of cupboard but bar, lobby and restaurant were very pleasant. Decoration was to a very high standard only a few minor issues that stopped me giving an excellent. A couple of light bulbs were out in the room and bathroom and the sealant on the side of the bath needed to be renewed. High Noon had internet but it wouldn't connect in fact it was difficult to get WiFi anywhere in the hotel despite ther being a strong signal. Evening meal was of a high standard but I don't like eating steak off a chopping board and the portions were a tad small for me. Had to wait for the chef to come in, in the morning between 7:30 and 7:45 so getting breakfast before an early start at work is a little risky although well worth waiting for. All in all though very good value for money.
