The Dial House
Excellent. We visit the Cotswolds a couple of times a year and when in Bourton we always stay at The Dial House. The hotel is very old and impressive. Accommodation and location are perfect. Lots of parking space for a large vehicle and lovely grounds at rear and outdoor seating area at front.The staff are friendly and polite and fantastic breakfast with lots of choice. We will be back

The Dial House
The Dial House was a perfect place to stay whilst in the Cotswolds. Right in the heart of the village we were immersed in the action. The rooms were comfortable. A little noisy at times as our room backed onto the courtyard but there wasn't any noise later when we were sleeping. Parking can be a bit confusing when arriving especially when the village is busy so slow down as you pass and drive down alongside of the dial house from the high street.

Very Good8,0
Lovely location & great staff
Lovely part of the Cotswold and this hotel is in the perfect location - just steps away from the river. The breakfast was lovely and the staff are very friendly. Unfortunately the bed in our room was very uncomfortable. It was far too springy and felt lumpy. The room also looked nothing like the photos - ours was absolutely tiny. I think the nicer rooms are in the main building, but we were placed in the wing of the hotel.

Horrible experience!!
Worst experience ever! They were decorating and renovating during our stay. We were woken up early to banging and yelling, and our room was left opened whilst the painters decorated, leaving our suitcases and belongings exposed. Room was dirty, and we had to ask the front desk for clean cups and supplies. Nothing 5 star about this hotel other than its prices. Just horrible!!
