All the staff were polite and extremely helpful. Shocked to find we had been upgraded for our 25th wedding anniversary to a four poster bed and roll top bath (thank you) . Breakfast (included) was to order off the menu and was top quality produce. The same goes for our evening meal in the lounge/bar. Dogs are welcome in some rooms at the inn but were not a problem. Would definitely stay here again if visiting Burford or surrounding area and will be bringing our cockapoo this time. 5*

Great place to stay for a Cotswolds base
Lovely stay at The Highway Inn. Super location and great breakfast. Only one minor downside was the lack of water pressure for the shower! But I would stay there again.
