  • "Overall stay was good."

    Although, radiator heating did not work and despite the staffs efforts and lack of owners support to the matter remained so for entire visit. Despite temperature reading 19 and apparently set to work below 23. Thanks to the staff though, providing heaters, extension lead and many more logs to enable us to be comfortable in the spaces. Thanks to all, especially Danny, Laurence, John and Shiela

  • "What a gorgeous cottage and really quite spacious."

    Lovely decor and very homely. Some noise from the attached hotel rooms but to be expected from an old cottage. The place was well equipped and an ideal base for exploring the Cotswolds and beyond. The bed was extremely comfortable. We booked a table at the Amberley Inn (next door)on the first night, for our anniversary and it was fabulous. Excellent food and service. What a wonderful location and enjoyed watching the cows roam the village. Highly recommend this lovely place.

    The cottage itself was bigger than we were expecting and the kitchen was well equiped. Well situated for days out and lots of local walks to do with the dog, he was so tired it took him two days to recover :-). Would definately recomend.

  • "We booked a three night stay, wedding at Woodchester Priory, reception at Nailsworth, only minutes away from both location so perfect."

    The cottage is very pretty, nestled at the back of the inn made it private and quite. The cottage is quirky, roomy and very comfortable. Enjoyed the birdsong in the morning, sitting out in the courtyard off the kitchen for breakfast, suncatch area. In the evening it was perfect place to unwined. Loved seeing the cows pop there heads over the garden wall. We did not get a chance to enjoy the inns facilities but the garden was beautiful with wonderful views. Would have liked cereal bowls, used pasta bowls which worked fine.

  • "A lovely cottage, behind the Amberley Inn Hotel."

    Had food at the inn and it was exceptional. Water pressure in shower was great. Plenty of hot wster. Wifi was good. Appreciated the hand rails on stairs and bathroom due to mobility issues. There was no noise disturbance even though the hotel advised a large wedding party was staying. We wouldn't have noticed. We would stay again.

    Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming again in the future. Best wishes Jane Property Owner

  • "A very cold and unfortunately smelly stay at the Garden cottage."

    On arriving at the pretty Garden Cottage, there were problems with the drainage which meant that on using the bathroom it meant that the entire cottage filled with the smell of drains. Then on trying to leave the cottage the front door wouldn’t lock. Thankfully a man from the pub fixed the door for us by moving the lock. We were told not to use the heating as it was set by the owners and if we did change it, they would just revert the changes which meant there was no heating in the cottage for the afternoons which meant it was very cold. We were told to use the fire instead but this did not warm the entire cottage so our baby was colder sleeping upstairs. Throughout our stay we also had issues with with the dishwasher that didn’t work as it left marks on anything put in it. The man from the pub put salt in but it still left things dirty. We then had to use the kitchen sink but it blocked when you used it causing the kitchen to smell. Again a man from the pub helped out but this didn’t solve the problem and the sinks blocked several times and according to the man that fixed it there was a significant blockage in the pipes. We did note the problems with the pub but they couldn’t contact the owners while we were there. We did also contact Sykes and we were offered a free night stay in the pub but we live so far away that this isn’t an option with a baby for one night. No other help or compensation was offered by the owners. A real shame as the cottage is pretty and in a lovely location but we definitely would not stay again as it was stressful having to sort out the problems with the cottage and be very cold during the Winter period.

    Thank you for this review and we’re at all unhappy. I am very disappointed that you chose not to call the Sykes office or me on your arrival or throughout your stay. The Sykes office are there for just such emergencies and my personal telephone number is in the cottage for any such matters and you could have called me at any time directly during your stay. . I would happily have amended the heating AND called a Plumer to arrive immediately to fix any problem with a blocked sink which incidentally is joined to the dishwasher. Which is exactly what I did when I stayed the following day after your departure once I noticed it. I have also replaced the dishwasher with a new one. You preferred however to report your issues AFTER you left the property having stayed a week. May I advise that in future you allow owners and Sykes to rectify a problem before seeking compensation and leaving a rather unfair review in an otherwise glowing feedback. We take great pride in our lovely cottage having lived there happily myself for 11 years so I really want others to enjoy it too as well as its beautiful location. Kind regards Jane Property Owner

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at Garden Cottage."

    Nice location on the edge of Minchinhampton common.The cottage itself was supprisingly larger than we thought. Very comfortable bed with large en-suite bathroom with lovely big soft towels provided. The central heating was excellent, with the added bonus of a woodburning stove. The Amberley Inn (20yds away) was ideal for meals and served 3 real ales with an excellent range of other drinks. The only thing that I would say is that the kitchen, in the cottage, would benefit from a microwave oven. Needless to say we loved the cottage and had a relaxing stay along with our Golden Retriever.

    Thank you so much for your review and we are really delighted you enjoyed you all enjoyed staying. I am always happy for constructive feedback and I thank you for yours- microwave now in situ! All very best wishes Jane Property Owner

  • "Comfortable stay in Garden Cottage."

    Beautiful area and convenient location. Warm and more space, especially downstairs, than anticipated. Could sometimes hear other guests from the hotel but did not unduly disturb us. Appreciated efficient contact with the owner. Comfy bed and good facilities that will be even better when there's more kitchen equipment.

    Hello Thank you for your review and feedback. Since your stay I have added a microwave as suggested and various bits of extra kitchen equipment to make stays easier. Really appreciate your stay and kind words Best wishes Jane Property Owner

    Decoration needs refreshing too. Shower & towels were fantastic & plenty of them. Were not told it ajoined the hotel & although it didn't disturb us too much would've liked to have been told. All staff were lovely, friendly & very helpful

    Hello, thank you for your valuable feedback. We have taken note of your comments regarding kitchen equipment and will be adding accordingly. The entire cottage was decorated in April . The location is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, yes the eighteenth century inn is next door but as you say it didn’t disturb and like you most visitors enjoy the convenience of using its facilities.

    As the property is attached to other guest accommodation, including the top floor of the cottage, it was quite noisy at times! It would have been helpful if this had been explained in Sykes details.

    The property is situated at the back of the Inn, but we never heard any noise in the time we were there, the House is a good size with a large living room, a decent kitchen and a further space off the kitchen, we really enjoyed our stay there, if you want to eat at the Inn it is recommended to book a table early on

Look forward to impressing your other half with delicious meals, cooked in the well-equipped kitchen, featuring a handy dishwasher, and ready to enjoy at the dining table over a bottle of wine which opens out onto a quiet enclosed private courtyard with relaxing sun loungers.

After dinner, retire to the sitting room, where you can snuggle up on the sofa in front of your favourite show, as your four-legged friend curls up in front of the crackling woodburning stove.There is also a delightful snug area with a sofa bed , perfect for enjoying a moment of peace with a hot chocolate and a selection of lovely books.

If you can tear yourself away from your pretty surroundings, wander into the local village with its stunning views across the five valleys as well as home to one of the oldest links courses in England, Minchinhampton Old Golf Course.
