Rectory Hotel

Rectory Hotel

***

A 12-room former rectory, this family-friendly Cotswolds charmer is blessed with walled gardens, a heated outdoor pool and a talented chef. With its open log fires, canoodle-perfect armchairs and all that crisp Egyptian linen waiting for you in the bedrooms upstairs, Rectory Hotel is the ideal place to kickstart or rekindle a romance – with or without the kids in tow.

Highlights:

  • Home-from-home interiors, antique-chic decor and a super location for exploring the Cotwolds

    Wood-panelled restaurant with imaginative menus by talented chef Peter Fairclough, a Slow Food fan

    A heated outdoor pool and walled gardens add to this unpretentious family-friendly hotel's appeal

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

This review of Rectory Hotel in the Cotswolds is taken from our latest guidebook, Mr & Mrs Smith: Hotel Collection – UK/Ireland Volume 2.

When escaping for the weekend, there’s always a moment – usually just after the 14th ‘are we there yet?’ – when you wonder if this really was such a good idea. Especially when you’re headed for a place called Crudwell. Things weren’t looking good. With three scratchy boys fidgeting in the back and one increasingly impatient lad at the wheel, my dreams of a few restful days in the countryside were fading fast. Until we arrived at Rectory Hotel.

Dining information

Restaurant:

You can’t fail to enjoy Peter Fairclough’s Modern British menu of fresh, seasonal produce – mostly organic – especially in summer, when it’s served outside in the Victorian gardens. The restaurant comprises two spaces: a handsomely wood-panelled dining room and a bright, airy conservatory. For pub-style fare, skip to the Potting Shed.

Top table:

The light and the garden views are wonderful, so choose a table by the windows.

Last orders:

From Sundays to Thursdays, last orders in the restaurant is 9pm; Fridays and Saturdays, 9.30pm.

Room service:

A full menu is available during restaurant hours, but the kitchen can usually magic up a sandwich, salad or omelette if you’re peckish at peculiar times.

Hotel bar:

Smart armchairs, comfy sofas and Perspex tables strike just the right balance between homely and stylish. If G&Ts aren’t your thing, there’s an excellent list of wines and whiskies; the bar closes when the last guest has gone to bed.
