... I'd better hurry up and finish so I can go and watch!! I'll let the pictures do the talking again and bid you goodnight, but first a huge thanks to Ash and Soph for having us - it was a perfect day. There's nothing like an English summer day. Highlights: Liam - playing with Owen Isobel - tbc!! (She's collapsed in a heap before we could ask ...
... This is my favorite style of garden. Around every corner is a pleasant surprise, the views are breathtaking and it just makes you want to smile to walk through it. I took and kept around 100 pictures not to mention the ones I deleted. I just couldn't get enough. We spent hours there and it was still hard to leave. Later in the day we took a short 3 mile loop walk to the Escarpment above Chipping ...
... with thatched roofs, lovely gardens and so quaint and eye catching. All the cottages are so well kept AND we managed to find somewhere to park and eat our banana sandwich for lunch. Our idea was to get a thermos, some cheap cutlery and a couple of plates and get some bread, butter, tea bags etc so we could eat where we wanted. Finding somewhere to do just that was not so ...
... low ceiling in the bar, and the food was good value for money
. We got back to Coln St Aldwyns around 8.30pm and reported in. Our washing had been brought in and folded.Our 150km and ten hour travels had taken us to and through Southrop, Bampton, Aston, Witney, Long Hanborough, Bladon, Woodstock, Charlbury, Enstone, Little Tew, Great Tew, Swerford, Hook Norton, Great Rollright, Over Norton, Chipping ...
... flooding we pass, it's so high, but they're all so used to it, they just takeout in their stride. Paddocks are now rivers, it's very very wet. Nice to walk around to take it all in. Tewkesbury town. So familiar. The local Cooperative food store we frequented has closed down. It's strange having that empty space, and Osborne's the stationery shop which goes over 2 stores, is also closing down. Doesn't leave slot on the High Street opposed ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Puckrup Hall, Tewkesbury
Better than everyone says
After booking this hotel I read the reviews on this site so was rather concerned about what we would find. However I have nothing but praise, the bedroom was newly furnished, food excellent though I agree drinks expensive but thats typical of a hotel and the staff were all friendly and every one of them smiled when they saw you. Definately stay again.
After reading all the comments, I wrote to the General Manager about our stay with questions but did not get a response. The lack of communication and our feeling of impending doom did not keep us from going to this hotel for the weekend of the 18th November.
A lovely hotel - but let down by some of the staff / decor.
This hotel is in a beautiful location and is good for a weekend break. The rooms were very nice although a little dated and had fantastic views of the golf course. They were restocked with wine ,water and fruit each day.
The food was at best average for the evening meals and for a 4 star hotel was very poor, although the breakfasts were good they were not up to the standard of other Hiltons I have stayed at.
The staff were all very friendly and willing to help with any problem that you had.
Overall an enjoyable weekend break in a nice location. I would go back but only on B & B.
If the food was better and the rooms were refurbished this would be a great location for short break.
My husband and I like to go away for a few days now and then just to get away from it all and relax. We chose this Hilton because we had had a good experience in a different Hilton and this one looked like it could be very relaxing with its health facilities and location. We booked a Junior suite over the internet for a reasonable price.
I cannot believe this place is a Hilton. The standard was pretty low to be honest.
I have been staying here during the week for 8 months now and on the whole am happy with the Hotel (else I wouldn't keep returning!). There are two parts to the Hotel a modern complex and the old house. I have tried many rooms in the main block of newer rooms and have not yet found a room I am happy with. Most of the rooms are very noisy throughout the night and I am a light sleeper so this is a problem. The rooms in the old house are however much quieter and the upgraded room I am given is excellent. Very spacious and quiet.
My wife and I spent the Easter weekend at Puckrup Hall and had an excellent break. The staff were an absolute pleasure, from Alison at reception to Melissa in the restaurant, they all worked hard to make sure that we enjoyed our stay. Given that the hotel was full, it was very much appreciated.
This is a Hilton?
Rate typically includes breakfast which is a real pleasure. This hotel has character, surrounded by a golf course.
But the rooms are just not that comfortable. They are spacious but stiff. The bed is thin and the sheets are not that comfy. I've stayed at Hiltons in the UK that do not have this problem so it is a local hotel issue, not my expectations being too high.
I've stayed here more than once because it is not bad and the area has limited options. But I have stayed in more comfortable rooms.
Unusually characterful for a Hilton
The website shows the original, Georgian building. The major part of the hotel is modern, but low build, and doesn't detract from the old house and it has nicely reflected the style without being a horrible pastiche.
My room was in the new building, and perfectly pleasant if functional. The buffet breakfast options were wide, and staff pleasant & attentive. Very nice public rooms, especially of course in the old house.
I was there on business: I like a bit more real character for a holiday, but it is in a good location, and fine for people who like to know what to expect from the Hilton chain.
