The Dial House
Fantastic hotel!
We stayed for one night at the Dial House this week. It is a fabulous old building in the centre of Bourton-on -the-water. The room was great-it was an "economy room" as all the others were taken however it was clean, the bed was very comfy, the en suite was just right.The whole room was spotless, lovely towels and lots of tea and coffee-making supplies. I managed to leave my bag outside on the patio (complete with wallet and cards inside)after a beer in the setting sun. Next morning it was handed back to me after an early panic in reception.They had found it that evening and placed it in a cupboard ready to return to me in the morning. What stars!!! Thanks for a lovely stay and we will be going back.

Central, comfortable and characterful. The staff were very friendly, extremely helpful and there was always someone available to deal with the guests. The restaurant is popular so it's advisable to book but drinks and snacks are available throughout the day. The gardens front and back are accessible to guests and free parking is available on site.

Disappointed but location was beautiful
Tried to check in twice but too busy for us even though our room was 4 doors away from reception. Asked for something for our anniversary even if I had to pay as a surprise for my partner but no extra effort made. Girl on breakfast was lovely though. Won't stay again but the location was perfect.

Not quite what i expected...
Having looked at all the wonderful pictures of this very old building and the bedrooms it was a huge disappointment to find ourselves in a modern annex next door. Unfortunately I guess this annex was converted from a house and there was no soundproofing between upstairs and down. We shared the ups and downs of the couple in the room above us all night! The room, however was clean and very well presented.

Really great hotel / location / staff / breakfast
Fantastic location right in the heart of Bourton. Super friendly man at reception and serving breakfast. I thought the breakfast was one of the nicest I've had and definitely for a small hotel. The breakfast menu was excellent. Lovely room. Plenty of parking space. The only thing I'd say - a completely minor point - is that a few people were saying that the venue was very warm / overheated - none of us probably thought of turning the radiator down in the rooms but we could have done. We had a wonderful stay and I would definitely go back again and recommend it.
