Hotel did not seem as good as on 2 previous visits, also room deal much more expensive than I recall. Dinner was good but in a virtually empty restaurant. Staff at breakfast and reception very good, not so good at evening restaurant and bar. Breakfast cold table a bit sparse, no croissants etc

Festive Lunch for 9 had been planned in detail well in advance and confirmed to hotel. On arrival, the assured, welcoming log fire was almost out and there was a long wait for coffee to arrive. Lunch name places and guests pre-booked orders (emailed 10 days before) could not be found. Gave restaurant a copy of the pre-booked orders but that too went astray. Great atmosphere, good food; just a pity bout their lack of attention to detail, after so much planning and 'on time' required information about our visit and itinerary. Staff very pleasant and endeavoured to be helpful but seemed to lack training.

We had a wonderful breakfast in the Bay Tree Restaurant, service was very good. Plenty to choice from. However we did not Dine in the Restaurant as it was very expensive and the Bar menu had more choice plus the Christmas Faye Menu was in the bar only which was very disappointing.

A very comfortable and charming hotel. Log fires, cosy nooks, spacious bedrooms and comfortable beds. Very good Cotswold base for exploration!

A very good "ladies who lunch" in the cosy bar area. We enjoyed the food (the fish trio) and the wine as well as the coffee which followed. We will return!

This ended up being a horrible experience. Service was terrible and slow. We arrived at 1pm and it was a full 30 minutes later before we were served with our drinks after we had chased them. One glass of white wine was warm and it needed ice to be palatable. The food was actually quite good when it eventually arrived but one of our party found her main course cold. Other diners were exasperated by the slowness of the service. By the time we got to desert we all just wanted to leave. The waiter changed during the meal for someone who couldn't actually hear what we were saying. The dining room is large, cold and with piped music. There is no warmth or relaxation to be had here. Reading the description on this page - the wine list is limited and expensive. The staff lacked experienced and were friendly but frankly we were all in the same doomed boat. They didn't charge for one glass of wine and we couldn't;t in all honesty justify service for this shambles. The bill for 3 x 2 courses and 2 glasses of wine was over £80. Insult to injury. Avoid as I shall in future.

We were quite disappointed with the overall standard of the dinner and breakfast at the restaurant compared to our previous visit a few years ago. The starter ( crab )was very bland and unimaginative . The main course (lamb) was reasonable . I had the haddock for breakfast . It was undercooked and a very small portion

I just felt the portion size was on the small size so that's why my value for money has been marked down. It was all very tasty and well presented but 1 carrot cut in half with a little more vegetables I don't think would qualify as a great deal towards my 5 a day. Some extra vegetables served separately for the table would of resolved this. Having said this I would return as everything else was perfect.

Our fifth return to this Cotswolds gem and it retains the charm and ambiance of our previous visits. The food is of consistent high quality and the service first class. The waiting staff are of the same high calibre with a particular mention to Paf who was a credit to the Baytree. Thanks to the whole supporting staff who have contributed to our wish to return.

The staff very very attentive, friendly and knowledgeable about the food that was being served. The atmosphere in the restaurant was lovely with the background music being played at just the right volume, therefore, it was not intrusive and holding conversations were not interrupted by it.
