Reviews - Marco Pierre White’s Frogmill Hotel

3Self Classified Hotel Ratings explained
Andoversford, Shipton, , Cheltenham, GL54 4HT
Nestled amidst the rolling Cotswolds, not 15 minutes from Cheltenham with free WI-FI in public areas and parking, this charming hotel offers country-style ambiance, delightful dining, cosy accommodation. With a rich heritage dating as far back as the Domesday Book, the Frogmill Hotel has a long history of providing welcoming hospitality.

Lovingly renovated, every effort has been taken to preserve the traditional appeal of the building whilst sympathetically blending it with more modern aesthetics. Whether relaxing by a roaring log-fire, strolling through the scenic streamside garden, or enjoying some award-wining cuisine, guests are sure to feel invigorated by the warm effervescence of the Hotel’s rustic country charm.

Quintessentially Cotswolds, it is the perfect location for those wishing to explore the many wonders of the surrounding area.
Each of the hotel’s 28 en-suite rooms are superbly decorated and furnished, reflecting the stylish allure and traditional splendour of the main building. All rooms come fully-equipped with an extensive range of luxuries and conveniences, including HD flat screen TV with Sky channels, work desk, designer toiletries, Egyptian cotton linen and tea & coffee making facilities.

There is a great selection of accommodation options available from Double and Deluxe to Suite and Family room types, perfect for both business and leisure breaks alike. 15 rooms are located in the ‘courtyards’ and the rest are in the main building. Many rooms also offer spectacular views across the stream whilst others look out over the rolling Cotswold countryside.

As one would expect from a property that boasts the patronage of Marco Pierre White, dining at the Forgmill Hotel is a truly sublime experience. Specialising in modern British cuisine, the restaurant serves hearty home-cooked dishes utilising the very best locally sourced ingredients.

Lighter options are also available in the lounge. The bar has been in existence for almost 1,000 years and with its original roaring fireplaces, leaded mullioned windows and timbered ceilings, it radiates with an authentic rustic charm. Serving a fine range of local ales it also features a large riverside beer garden, perfect for a spot of alfresco dining and drinking in the summer.

With its fantastic location and comfortable surroundings, the Hotel is a popular venue for a wide range of events. From weddings and celebrations to conferences and meetings, it offers extremely fine function rooms, complete with vaulted ceilings, the largest with a capacity of over two hundred, each with its own sunny terrace and access to the streamside garden.
Located by the village of Andoversford in the glorious Cotswolds, the Hotel is just a 14 minute drive from Cheltenham via the A40 and has its own free on-site car park.

Cheltenham train station provides excellent transport links to the rest of the UK and for those flying in, Bristol Airport is just over an hour by car, or there’s Staverton Airport, just 23 minutes from the Hotel.

The Cotswolds offers visitors some of the most beautiful and unspoilt scenery in the British Isles. Popular with tourists from across the globe, the area is renowned for its gentle hillsides, outstanding countryside, river valleys, historic market towns and much more besides. A bona fide heaven for lovers of the great outdoors it is perfect for a wide-range of activities, including walking, rambling, fishing, cycling, horse riding, and hand-gliding. Just a quick 15 minute drive from the Hotel is the scenic Bourton-on-the-Water, often referred to as the Venice of the Cotswolds and regularly voted as one of the prettiest villages in England.

A little further on is the delightful market town of Stow-on-the-Wold, offering many fine antique shops, art galleries, gifts and crafts. The Cotswolds are also rich with history and culture and features a great many sites of interest including Blenheim Palace, Woodchester Mansion, Berkerley Castle and Hailes Abbey. Sports fans are well served by the Shipton Golf course, located right next to the hotel.

There’s also the thrill of Clay Pigeon shooting at the The Cotswold Clay Club and Shooting School. Perhaps most enticing of all is the world-famous Cheltenham Racecourse, only a 15 minute drive from the hotel it is home to some of the best jump racing action in the world. For family run, Cotswolds Wildlife Park is a great adventure for young and old alike. There’s further excitement to be had at Bourton Model Railway, Birdland Parks and Gardens and Cotswold Falconry Centre.

Understaffed and shabby
Although the staff are friendly, there are nowhere near enough of them to give a good service. The hotel is shabby and in need of a refurb although the outside appearance is lovely. I took my wife for her birthday and after waiting 20mins past the time the table was booked for we were finally seated only to leave the table after 2 hours of waiting for my main course to arrive. I suggest they spend a little money and do it properly or close the doors!!!

A bit tired but an okay place to stay in room 8
Room was large with a comfortable bed although ensuite was small and had no ventilation so there was mould on the ceiling above shower. Room was a bit tired and could do with a spruce up as could the hotel generally but the staff were friendly, helpful and accommodating.
Food in the restaurant was good and service was excellent initially but deserts took along time to come out. Our booking for dinner had not been entered so we had to eat an hour later than we wanted to (had booked dinner when booked room), but when we asked for some fruit, some got brought up to us. Drinks from the bar were expensive. Breakfast was nice and good selection but was lukewarm.

Lovely stay
We just stayed for one nights bed and breakfast. The staff were friendly, the room was very nice and the bed very comfortable. The only problem for us was the bathroom ensuite....bit tatty in places with damp patches and peeling paper but mainly the water kept going freezing cold during my shower!!! The food was delicious for breakfast and we loved the peaceful setting of the hotel.

Birthday Honours!
A superb little place to stay! We came to celebrate Mothers 80th Birthday and arranged it some time ago for a small family get together and the chaps at the Frogmill made us all fee l very welcome! The rooms in the old building were full of character and cosy and the rooms in the stables were fantastic - bigger than home in fact I could have easily moved in!! Nicely decorated rooms and comfortable and snug public areas and the restaurant a very eclectic mix of oddities - loved it! The restaurant team (dinenr and breakfast) are amazing and very funny (its all about the beans ;-) ) with perfect food at dinner and breakfast - over all a lovely stay and a place that we will add to the return to list - the weather was kind to us and there are some great local places to explore! Thanks to all the team at the Frogmill for a great Birthday stay!!

Delightful
Staff go the extra mile. We stated in The Stables' it was so peaceful. Bigs thanks to Steph and young Pedro. They both excelled in what they do.
The food was simply truly scrumptious and presentation was yo perfection.
Only thing missing was a cozy little lounge area where you could chill and relax by the fire.

An enjoyable stay
We just stayed for one night as a retirement / birthday treat for my husband and a break from all the manic Christmas activities. It delivered well. It is a pretty place, a bit quirky, nice room and as it is in the country a distance from other eateries, we decided to stay in house for our evening meal. It did not disappoint,and the service was good. Breakfast also enjoyable.

Very Poor, Shabby and Outdated Room, More like "Marco Pierre Shite"
Hotel Looks lovely from the Outside but it was so difficult to find reception on a cold dark night.
Once at reception there was no receptionist to be found, after long wait finally checked in.
Room was very tired looking and outdated and needs redecorating, more like staying in a shabby B & B than a hotel.
Only saving grace was that the staff were very friendly and helpfull (Particular thanks to the the Bar Man who seemed to have to do everything on his own but was great). The excellent staff are clearly wasted in such an establishment.
Breakfast Very Good
All in all with some TLC this could be such a great hotel.

Very Homely & Pretty Cotswold Hotel
Traditional style Cotswold Country Hotel with a homely feel, set in beautiful surroundings with lovely views. Not modern in style but very comfortable & having all the basic essentials. Good value for money, excellent breakfast, very friendly & helpful staff.

Disappointing
They gave us room 14, directly over the bar. We couldnt sleep until 1am when they closed and then at 7am we were woken up by the staff re loading the bar and preparing for breakfast service. The bathroom was in desperate need of renovation. When we complained at checkput the manager didnt even acknowledge what we were saying, let alone apologise. The place is beautiful outside but inside is falling to pieces. The restaurant has pieces of wall missing and the burnt mark of an iron on the floor, dead plants, blown out light bulbs.... I cant believe Marco Pierre White puts his name to that place. The food is just average gastro pub.
