      Historical Traveler Reviews Bibury Court Hotel

      Beautiful hotel


      We went to Bibury Court hotel last weekend and we loved it. Its such a fantastic place to use a base for exploring the local area. My husband spent one of the days fishing in the river next to the hotel and caught a couple of trout and we saw two small otters swimming next to the opposite side of the river bed. It did help that the weather was perfect so we were able to sit outside in the stunning gardens and relax. It was magical.

      We had an amazing meal in the resturant. We visited the hotel last year and food was fine but nothing special and now they have a new chef who they said was head chef at U2's hotel in Dublin and you can tell. The food was fantastic. We had delicious lamb and freshly caught trout and it was reasonable too.

      The rooms are quite dated but they are large and spacious and the beds comfortable so I would recommend this place to everyone except I feel that its a bit of a secret so I may not.

      A Terrific Experience


      Having read the June review which was very negative we were somewhat apprehensive prior to our visit. Our concerns were totally unfounded- this hotel is a must. In every respect it offers the highest of standards. The location is idyllic, accomodation superb, the young and enthusiastic staff were attentive and helpful and the food was excellent in both quality and presentation. We enjoyed a fabulous stay and will unquestionably be returning and recommending Bibury Court to all our friends.

      A marvellous stay


      We recently enjoyed a marvellous trip to Bibury Court Hotel. The new management have recently taken over and have clearly begun to change things for the better.

      The food has improved and the service throughout the hotel was firstclass. The hotel is a place which enables you to relax and unwind. The refreshing attitude the new management have makes a welcome change.

      The rooms are comfortable and clean nothing a few minor alterations won't cure. We were told that a refurbishment is planned sometime next year. Their plans sound very exciting and we will be going back lots to see the improvements.

      Sadly Going Down Hill


      This hotel has been a wonderful place to stay over the past 8 years. However, this has been mainly due to the personality of Simon Gould the general manager who has sadly 'moved on' to allow the son of the owner to take over. The hotel has needed money spending on it for quite some time but they have been able to get away with not updating the rooms ( both private and public ) due to the country house charm of the place. Sadly all of the charm walked out of the door the day Simon Gould left. If his arrogant replacement is not going to make any effort to continue in the same vain then people really are going to expect far higher standards of decor, furnishings and service within what is infact quite a tired property. An extermely dissappointing holiday - certainly will not be returning soon.

      Amazingly Brilliant


      Along with my other family members I have became a regular at the Bibury Hotel - attending the horseracing during the day and retreating to the warmth of this beautiful house in the evening. I call it a house because it is so much more than a hotel, it is a place where you feel like part of one big family for the period of time you are staying, whether I am looking for some conversation or want to relax by the river reading a book and drinking a glass of wine the staff are ever respondant to my needs. The food is out of this world and I never eat anywhere else - I don't need to. Simon the manager and all his staff should be thoroughly commended, they are engaging and exceptionally attentive - I could not rate this experience highly enough!!!

      A Cotswold Gem


      In recent years we've had a terrific time staying at at the Bibury Court. The Hotel is located at an incredibly beautiful site, has a welcoming and helpful staff, wonderful food and terrific rooms. We will definitely be back again, and again.

      Simply Wonderful!! Heaven!


      One of the most elegant places we stayed at while in England!! Food was outstanding, accommodations wonderful, staff were great. I highly recommend The Bibury Court.

      Simply Enchanting


      I've fallen in love with the Bibury Court Hotel. Majestic and so lovely any time of the year, it has been my favorite hotel in England for nearly 10 years now. My daughter and I are going again next week and staying for 2 nights...making our trip complete.



      A complete retreat - spent a wonderful weekend at Bibury Court. The staff were great, the food was fantastic and there is plenty of gorgeous countryside to explore. We followed the advice of the receptionist and followeed the route of the trout river which flows thorough the grounds and took a three mile walk into the next town. The hotel is a complete treasure.



      peaceful surroundings. attentive staff.excellent food. catch your own breakfast in the trout stream. fine selection of scotch whiskeys. several days worth of walking tours in the area. easy drive to Bath, Roman ruins, and Bibury. be sure to lunch at the Catherine _____ pub. one of the best times i've enjoyed!!

      Not really across the road but 5 miles away. Dropped the ladies off near a bridge then found a parking space. Walked back to the Bibury Trout Farm. You could hire a rod to catch trout but it seemed too easy so we watched several other people catch numerous trout then whack them 3 times on the head to put them to sleep. You have to buy every fish you catch and ...

She married William Longespree, the illegitimate son of Henry II and half brother to King Richard. When he died she established the Abbey and became its first Abbess. The cloisters are still intact and form a lovely interior courtyard to the house. The story is now quite familiar. Henry VIII shut down the Abbey, took its riches ...

      ... very welcome, Our last stop was at a tiny village (actually twin villages) of Bibury / Arlington. A short walk brought us to Arlington Row on the Coln River where the cottages date back to the 1200's. The Row started life as a Wool House for the Bishop. In the 1600's they became a cluster of weaver's cottages overlooking a water meadow called Rack Isle where the wool used to be hung out to dry. Today there is quite a large trout farm in operation but you are unable to walk ...

      ... that the backdrops had some of the letters from the book written on them. And even better, the actors were walking about the garden before the show and taking pictures with audience members. Carleigh and I went and tried to get a picture but as we nearly made it to a couple of soldiers, we were asked to take our seats. The play was fantastic and quite well done. The whole time Carleigh would lean over to me and she would have the biggest smile on her face. ...
