Hotel in a nice position but we thought it was overpriced for the accommodation provided.
Room we stayed in was at the top of the hotel and quite small.
We ate in the restaurant in the evening and one of the meals (a pork chop) was more fat than meat. We did bring this to the attention of the management.
Cosy break in the country
Lovely accommodation, although room a little on the small size.
A Great weekend in the Cotswolds
We booked this hotel to celebrate a special weekend and to take in the stunning surrounding areas.
Having read some of the reviews people have posted about this hotel, I have to wonder what their expectations are from a historic listed building in a beautiful village/town. Eg, 5 car parking spaces, as there is plenty of unrestricted parking outside the hotel, and as for lack of separate reception area, is this really necessary with only 9 rooms. Checking in at the bar is simple and well managed by friendly and helpful staff. I cannot fault the hospitality that my partner and I received on our visit. The room was just what we needed for a perfect weekend away. We woke up in the morning feeling relaxed and fresh, ready to tackle a superb breakfast. Plenty of choice even for a fussy eater out there. We hope to be visiting the Porch House again in the future and to be enjoying some more of what the Cotswolds has to offer. P.S, the complimentary Sloe Gin, was a nice touch and something hotels should adopt.
Characterful comfort in the Cotswolds
The Porch House is a gem of a hotel.
It has great charm and the décor reflects the age and character of the place. Staff are friendly and attentive, nothing is too much trouble. The beds and pillows are the most comfy of any hotel I've stayed in. Breakfasts and dinners in the restaurant were delicious. If you're looking for a base for touring the Cotswolds this special place is ideal.
Thank you for a lovely stay for one night in the superior double room , the room was just right for us , very clean bathroom , and cozy comfortable bed, Hardly any noise not too disturb as previous reviews etc, I would recommend this hotel and use again if we chose to stay in stow on the wold , it is situated in the centre ideal for shops, restaurants and bars
The Porch House
Friendly staff, beautiful room and delicious food.
Would definitely recommend it.
Only 4 parking spaces in this hotel and room very small
On arrival, no parking spaces left (This hotel has only 4 parking spaces).
I had to park in the street. The room was very small, no space to put your bags. Sink was dirty and a light bulb did not work. The main head shower also did not work well.
Response from hotel
Thank you for your recent review which we received this morning.
We absorb each and every review in order to ascertain where we might improve and it seems there are some areas for improvement in your case for which I must apologise. I have looked into the bulb not working and this has been replaced since your stay. We do take a lot of time and trouble to replace the bulbs but occasionally there are one or two which either escape our notice or which blow throughout the course of the day due to the old nature of the building. I hope this did not cause too much inconvenience during your stay.
I appreciate that the size of the room you stayed in is on the small side however we do try to balance this out by way of offering these rooms at what is a very reasonable price and amongst the most competitive prices offered in Stow or the surrounding area. I am sorry that you found no room for your bags; we felt that on balance a king's size premium bed was a priority and this did compromise some of the remaining space in these standard rooms.
I am in the process of looking into the shower head and if this requires cleaning or having any lime scale removing I shall ensure this is done as a matter of urgency.
The dirty basin is unacceptable and I shall look at how and why this was missed as part of our rigorous daily cleaning schedule. Please rest assured that this will be discussed with the house keepers to ensure it does not occur again. Please accept my apologies over this.
We do have limited parking space as illustrated on the website. Stow on the Wold is one of those Cotswold towns where parking is difficult at times but allocation from the council is next to impossible to achieve due to the tight regulations imposed on the rural nature of the location. To that end we cannot offer more parking than we do and we endeavour to advise all our customers accordingly. I am sorry this courtesy was not extended in your case.
I am saddened that you did not enjoy your stay but I would be sincerely delighted to offer you a far better experience if you might get in touch directly with me so as to discuss when you might be able to return and what steps I can take to ensure you have a memorable stay for the right reasons.
To that end I very much look forward to hearing from you in due course.
The Porch House
Great hotel and restaurant
Short stop stay
On arrival we were very welcomed and shown to our room with no fuss and was pleased to be there' Once in all work in the room to a point we felt at home.
We did not eat that evening at the place but the breakfast was well presented and good '
The room was well thought out down to the small items that you don't get from other places
Bed was nice so good I slept all night and for hotels for that's good.'
We will be returning to stay again ' and thank you to the staff for our stay.
