We first visited The Lamb Inn on recommendation and we're thrilled with our experience and vowed to return which we did recently .

Once again it was a pleasure to be there and will not leave it as long before we visit again. . Top quality everything .

we love this hotel and have returned several times.

it is in a quiet location just off the High Street and with easy parking.

Attractive, warm and welcoming with wonderfully comfortable beds. Highly recommended

Hard to find any fault with any aspect of the stay. Will definitely stay again.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff.

The teddy on the bed was unnecessary and rather irritating!

Overall impressions

The hotel is situated in a quiet location of the main High Street.

There is no real reception just the end of the bar converted into a "reception" area. Our superior room was pleasant with a large bed but the bathroom needed attention. The toilet seat was loose/broken and the toilet roll holder loose on the wall. These details should have been fixed before our stay and had been like this for some time. We reported this on leaving in Sunday. The breakfast was of high standard, well cooked and plenty of food available to suit all tastes. On Saturday evening we requested, albeit late, a table in the main restaurant. However due to large parties from outside we had to wait until 8.30 for a table. This seems to fairly normal on Saturday evenings as the restaurant gets busy and in house guests need to be aware. I specifically the manager asked and emphasised, for a rare fillet steak. As is often the case in England it turned out to be cooked medium. At no time did the manager, who passed our table often, asked if the steak was to my liking. Moreover the chef seems to be more interested in presentation a la noveau cuisine, with small, but nicely presented dishes rather than a degree of quantity as well as quality. All very pretty but if you are feeling hungry, beware, you may be disappointed. Whilst the overall impression of the hotel was good, being in a lovely village with nice surroundings I would have expected a little more attention to detail for a price of £210 pppn .(NB: there is no car park on site having to share with a sister hotel down the road, or use on street parking) So if you are feeling in need some good helpings at the end of the day choose a local restaurant. elsewhere.

Our stay in the Cotswolds--The Prettys

The staff were excellent,really helpful,pleasant and professional.

We had a superior room which was small we had to walk around our luggage. The room was directly above the front door and the lounge bar/check-in area and at night it was very noisy. The breakfast was very good,the dinner not so. We had spent the two previous nights at the Lamb's sister hotel The Bay Tree which was more roomy,lower cost for a bigger room and the food was better.

Cosy feel, good lounge areas but not the best reading lights, warm and welcoming.

Excellent choice between restaurant and bar meals; the latter had good choices and were very reasonably priced.

Excellent breakfast.
