About the hotel

On the picturesque village green of Ilmington, set in the crook of the Cotswold Hills, lies The Howard Arms, a stunning 400-year-old Cotswold stone inn at the centre of village life. The flagstoned bar and open-plan dining room create a civilised look without sacrificing period charm, and it is all imbued with an informal atmosphere and a log fire that burns for most of the year. Eight stylish rooms sit above and behind the inn and with not a street-light nor traffic within miles, a peaceful nights sleep is guaranteed.

We offer a healthy selection of real ales and wine drinkers can choose from a list of over thirty served by the glass. We take pride in sourcing excellent ingredients locally for the kitchen and many of our suppliers are named on our menu. The Howard Arms is the start and finish to a number of idyllic local walks, and is ideal for exploring Hidcote and Kiftsgate gardens. There is a lovely garden to enjoy in the summer.

The Howard Arms

Very pretty place to stay and nice and peaceful.

We stayed in the garden room which is lovely and very big. If you are a light sleeper then it may be an idea to stay in one of the rooms upstairs as you get a lot of noise from the rooms above I.e walking on the floor.

Although our room was lovely it really could've done with a proper clean. There were lots of cobwebs on the ceiling and also the side tables were very dusty.

Bathroom is nice and big with both a bath and a shower.

We ate in the pub for dinner which was lovely, food was delicious and service was very quick.

All in all we had a nice stay.

Great relaxation

Quiet and Dark like it says on the site.

Internet worked better than many hotels. The only minor niggle was that breakfast doesn't start till 8, but I couldn't bring myself to get upset about it.
