Reviews - Bibury Court Hotel

3AA Assessed Country House Hotel Ratings explained
Bibury, Bibury in The Cotswolds, GL7 5NT

Recommended by Condé Nast Johansens

Our inspector loved "The peaceful and tranquil location combined with excellent service make this the perfect country retreat. "

BIBURY COURT

Bibury Court is one of the prettiest Cotswold hotels. From the moment you arrive and view the house from the imposing driveway you can't fail but to be enraptured with the 17th Century Jacobean Cotswold mansion. Bibury Court offers 18 individually furnished bedrooms, oak panelled Drawing Room with a roaring fire, snug bar and 2 restaurants: The Conservatory and the 2 AA Rosette Oak Room. The hotel is set in 6 acres of glorious gardens bordered by the trout-filled River Coln along which there are breathtaking walks to be enjoyed. Bibury Court is warm and welcoming with a young team of staff all prepared to go the extra mile to ensure guests enjoy their time in the hotel. In the heart of the Cotswolds, Bibury Court sits at the end of the village by St Mary's Church which can be accessed from the hotel grounds. The village of Bibury, with its famous trout farm, is picture perfect and Bibury Court is an ideal base for exploring the beauty of the Cotswolds.
Just 7 miles from the historic town of Cirencester, 20 from Cheltenham, 25 from Oxford and 50 from Bristol, Bibury Court seems accessible from every point on the compass. London is an hour and a half's drive, if you don't come across a tractor on the way.

Bibury Court no faulty towers
On arrival we were shown to our favourite room where we put our items. We then went for a long walk., while we were walking i got a phone call to say there was a plumbing problem and they had moved our items to another room. On our return about 4pm we went up to our new room which smelt of cooking and you could here the kitchen fan. I went down to reception to ask if there was another room available and she said there was so i moved our items to the new room but it wouldn't be available until 5.30. We sat outside when the receptionist came to say there was another room available so i went with her and moved my stuff yet again.( 4 rooms ) we went down for our evening meal and was told the drawing room area wasn't available as it was reserved for the wedding guests who had arrived for the wedding the next day. So we went into the bar where heavy metal music was playing. I asked for a glass of sauvigon blanc which they said could only be served in a red wine glass as they had run out of white glasses (they were all piled up on the bar counter) we were due to eat at 8.00 at 8.10 we asked for the menus which took a further 10 minutes. We ordedred and were shown to our table about 8.40pm. The starter arrived what a disgrace. The duck egg was raw the white of the egg was clear and the parma ham had no meat only fat. The waitress was called and she couldnt apolgise enough.i explained i was a ver good cook and it just wasn't good enough she bought the menu out and i asked her what one of the starters were and she said "you call yourself a cook". I then asked for another glass of sauvigon blanc and ased if i could have it in a white wine glass her reply "well what are these on the table" . The rest of the meal was fine the waitress said she would refund the eveing meal as it wasnt acceptable. We then went to bed, we went down to breakfast to be told we couldn't sit in the conservatory as it was for the wedding guests. We ordered breakfast and went to table for the fresh fruit as on the menu only to be told that they wern't serving fruit today. My breafast was fine my husbands ordered eggs benedict with salmon and was served scrambled eggs and salmon. We checked out and will not reurn bearing in mind we have been going for 16 years sometimes 3 to 4 times a year. I think the whole place is totally under staffed.

Choose the tasting menu
The tasting menu was very good. Don't be put off by the obscure description of dishes. Ask the waiting staff to describe what is in the dishes and then try them! The 'candy floss wool' on the lamb was amazingly good to eat (produced a kind of sweet glaze). During the week of our stay, my wife and I ate in Michelin starred restaurants. Some dishes on the tasting menu at Bibury Court would give them a run for their money. Staff were very friendly and helpful. However, the ambiance of the restaurant was not to my taste and the alternative table d'hote menu was far less impressive and to be avoided.

My experience
Accommodation was very good and improved from my previous visits. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Food was of good quality, my only issue was that if you stayed for more than one night the restaurant only offered a limited choice and was the same menu for both nights. It would be even more limited if you stayed longer.

We so enjoyed our stay at Bibury. this is the second time we have stayed at Bibury and have not been disappointed ! The staff have been absolutely wonderful to us at all times, polite and friendly and made us very welcome. The staff went out of their way to make our 5 visitors and ourselves happy for our luncheon as well. Our visitors for the whole afternoon were very impressed. Thank you so much. We will return.

Lost for words
As mentioned in the Guests book ......... Words are not enough to express our experience at Bibury Court. You need to see the eyes, the heart and smiles at every corner of the building and crevice in the garden. Absolutely magnificient

A Valentine's weekend treat!
We had a lovely weekend away at Bibury. Strangely the best thing about it is the setting yet we managed to get the room at a very good price for such high quality accommodation. Naturally we booked to eat in the hotel and savour the Valentine's taster menu but that part of the experience was less good value for money. Given that good quality wines are now so readily available why oh why do we always see such a mark up in restaurants. The set menu was also a little pricey for what we had although the quality of the food was good. Food plus wine for the one night cost us a little more than the room and that just took the edge off - dampening our enthusiasm for a return trip sometime.

Bibury Court
A lovely place to stay for our wedding anniversary. The food was wonderful,even when the chief chef was absent. The room was spacious and clean. Service was functional and not over the top.
