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.

The frogmill at Cheltenham
When checking in we were shown to our room which was in the loft of the main building.The room was very small and not very special and as it would have meant a lot of climbing of a very steep narrow staircase we decide that we would not be staying in the room. We contacted reception and informed them of our decision and were the offered an alternative, the only other room available in the outbuildings which was completely different as it offered 2 bedrooms,1ensuite,and a very large sitting room.
We stayed for our 2 day booking and enjoyed it but would be hesitant about recommending it to friends. We have spoken to the staff at The Frgmill explaining our thoughts

Nice enough
Functional, comfortable rooms and friendly staff in a very scenic area. A few things needed slight repairs (blinds, one of the chairs, etc.) Overall, quite pleasant.

Character room, but no bath and noisy.
Fabulous location, and a wonderful building. Beautiful character room, but I was dissapointed there was no bath in the rather small bathroom. The shower could have done with being thermostatic as kept going hot and cold, it certainly woke me up in the morning. Quite a lot of noise from other rooms/ parts of the hotel. Super comfortable bed. I had a meal on the evening which was so enjoyable that my only regret was that I could not share it with someone.

The hotel is beautiful outside and is full of quirky character inside. We were very lucky as a friend had bought us afternoon tea, which did not disappoint. We were then shown to our room, which turned out to be the honeymoon suite. We had only booked a standard room, so we were very pleased. We had lots of room and a lovely roof terrace to look out over the countryside. Overall the room was clean had a lovely atmosphere. A few minor cleaning issues were spotted by my wife (who runs a cleaning company) back of toilet seat being her main complaint. Would definitely stay again.

A Hot night
The radiators had 2 settings ,on or off. When we entered the accomadation the room was cold and had not been aired. The TV remote wasn't there, we asked for a replacement , failed to be replaced. My wife had a bath, on leaving the bath she tried to use the support handle it came of in her hand. I tried to use the shaver light unit it had no power. I put my hand into the drawer for the hair drier, only to discover screws undone and dangerous in that they could have cut someone. The heating came on but even when we turned it down after our meal becuase the room was not unlike a sauna, it failed to cooperate. It took till 2.30 am in the morning to get the room back to a state whereby we could get some sleep. The meal was excellent , the young waiter spilled the green beans on the tray, nevermind just lack of experience. We ordered a bottle of Beaujolais Villlage they brought a bottle of Beaujolais I gave them the benefit and we had it with our meal.We ordered coffee at the end it failed to arrive after 30mins. We returned to our room which was a sauna. All of these factors we reported on the morning of our departure. I fail to see where I could give an honest opinion of the hotel or recommend it till I have stayed there without a problem. The location and the atmosphere are excellent and the staff with a little more training and experience could make this really great.

A lovely stay!
We enjoyed our stay at the Frogmill. It was a bit chilly when we arrived but we easily sorted that by turning up the heating. We kept it on as there was a bit of a draft. Perhaps draft excluders would help as the weather gets colder.... Food and customer service both great. Lovely location and very reasonably priced. Lovely quality washing products provided. Room was clean, nicely decorated and spacious. Great location too.

Nice Evening Meal - Not so nice breakfast
We arrived late and had a meal in the Bar. The food was lovely and the beer great. The room was okay, but being an attic room, not a lot of usable space as I am 6ft tall, but adequate for sleeping in. Very hard to find switches for towel rail and heater and TV remote was for a different TV and so did not work.
Had a full english which was not very nice: very greasy! Hence the low mark for food.
