Night staff unfriendly but room was lovely, good location and ample parking

I had been working and then travelling for most of the day so just wanted to see a friendly face.

I reached the hotel at about 8.40pm. Receptionist wasn't particularly bothered to see me, just gave me my key and gestured to the general direction of my room. I went and put my bags in there and went straight back to reception and asked if there was space for dinner. She sighed and said the restaurant was busy and to go to the bar. I went to the bar, and asked the barman if they were still serving food. He said yes until 9:30 PM but the chef would kill me (it being about 8.45pm). I was very tired and that threw me aback so I said nevermind (at which point the barman said they normally have two chefs but one had had an accident that day), had a soft drink and went back to my room. The room itself was lovely with good facilities. The next morning I went to reception and the staff were very friendly. I had previously paid for breakfast but by this point I just want to get out of there so I didn't have it. Overall the hotel has the potential to be very nice, however I feel training needs to be given to night staff on how to speak to guests, particularly on week nights.

A lovely 3 day stay

Had a lovely three night break at the Cotswold Lodge.

The staff were welcoming and helpful. The room was even better than I had expected and the food was very good. The hotel is in an excellent location for sightseeing. Would happily recommend and return here.

Great location, easy to get to if coming from M40 and anyone who's been to Oxford will know how important that is.

Lovely room and really good, helpful, friendly staff. Will definitely stay again.

Nice location with free car parking.

Bathroom a little tired. I thought the full english breakfast mediocre and very overpriced. Plenty of cafes nearby.

Room clean but could do with updating.

No shampoo in bathroom. There was a wedding party at time of visit, bar full of party goers so unable to use the bar. Woken at 2:30am by room above singing and laughing called staff who dealt with situation.

The hotel itself is clean but does have the feel of a 1980's old folks home.

Wonderfully relaxing treat

The Cotswold Lodge Hotel turned out to be a real gem and one that we will definitely return to.

The lounge and bar areas are luxuriously decorated and furnished, the staff were all most friendly and helpful, and the food was excellent. We were really able to relax here, and would recommend it highly to others.
