By journeying through the rolling hills and rural beauty of the Cotswolds, you reach one of the most acclaimed Cotswold luxury hotels. Lords of the Manor is the perfect destination for guests looking for a truly enchanting getaway. A country house experience will always surpass all other Cotswold accommodation. Allowing guests to enjoy a true home away from home during their getaway, the authenticity of taking up residence in a country house, no matter how long for, is what makes a Cotswold stay unforgettable. Privately owned for 17 years, Lords of the Manor has always put guests at the forefront of all that we do. Our team is adept at delivering exceptional service, there is no comparison to other stays you may have had elsewhere. With beautiful feature views of the gardens, the village of Upper Slaughter and the surrounding Cotswolds hills, each of the rooms in our charming Country House Hotel are individually furnished and decorated, making them only space you need during your getaway. Our 17th-century hotel is in the unspoiled Cotswold village of Upper Slaughter, between Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold. The walk between Upper and Lower Slaughter is often called the best short walk in the Cotswolds – it showcases all that is loved most about the area. It’s not difficult to see why we were recently named as the Good Hotel Guide’s best Hotel with Gardens; set in 8 acres of lawns and grandiose gardens, our Cotswold hotel dates back to 1649 and the honey coloured stone of the manor instantly evokes nostalgia for decadent pastimes - without compromising on modern comforts.

We booked a room at £300 a night for two nights and were told when we arrived that we had been upgraded. Wonderful! But the room was a let-down. Very ordinary, and not really a £300 room, never mind the next grade up. Dinner was unimpressive. My confit duck had no particular flavour. The tiny amount of creamed parsnip was a triumph of the art of creaming – but at the expense of taste. And I really do make much better braised red cabbage at home. And when you order a side of mixed vegetables, you don’t expect that half of it will be the same kale your main course was balanced on. Lazy. My wife’s seared tuna was cut far too thick, was tough, and had lots of connective tissue in it. She left most of it. “I’ll just have one scoop of ice-cream for desert, please” Still £9 on the bill, no reduction. Total dinner bill – over £150. In contrast, we had an excellent and delicious dinner the following night at the Slaughters Country Inn, for under £100, where they have not forgotten that flavour trumps pretty plating every time. One other problem needs to be addressed seriously – a safety issue. To get from the car park to reception you have to walk along a gravel path through the garden, and try not to trip on the irregular raised stone flags. The lights are of no help – those that point downwards are uselessly weak, and the ones that point upwards just blind you. The management really should watch someone over 70 try to carry their case from the car down this path at night when it’s wet from rain. The good points? The location is great, the breakfast was excellent – perfect scrambled egg, and bacon exactly as I asked for it - and the staff were unfailingly helpful and polite.

We are very sorry to hear that your visit to Lords of the Manor was disappointing. Had you mentioned during your stay that you found your upgrade to be a letdown we would have been more than happy to amend this for you. We would have been more than happy to assist with luggage and valet parking your car for you from the front entrance of the hotel, it is a service we offer all guests and is on our confirmation emails. Please do let us know if this was not offered to you and we shall investigate with the team. Please do contact us regarding the overcharge for your ice cream. Our Deputy General Manager, Hanna is more than happy to arrange a refund. We would have rectified this on your bill and removed the service charge if we had known it was incorrect. Once again, our sincerest apologies that you did not enjoy your time with us.

We had a one night stay here to meet up with friends, who also stayed over. We arrived in the most torrential rain, missed the signpost to the front of the hotel and ended up parking in the car park behind the gardens, which meant a total soaking to get to reception. Not a great start but fortunately everything was good from then on. We had our dog with us and we were given a lovely room with french doors directly out to a small garden area. The room was lovely and spacious. For anyone used to being given the grotty room in a hotel if you are travelling with your dog, you will not be disappointed here. We met up with our friends and we all had some teas, coffees, shortbread in one of the lovely lounges, where our dog was able to join us. A short break then we reassembled for pre dinner drinks followed by dinner. We had chosen not to eat at The Atrium but found the menu, food & service at their other restaurant suited us all. After dinner we retired to the bar for a few more drinks (and our dog joined us again). The only thing missing was the lack of real fires. It was a cold wet October night but apparently the chimneys hadn't been swept so couldn't be lit. In the morning, after a very good night's sleep, we enjoyed breakfast (in a separate room where our dog could be). Unfortunately, no-one had explained to us there was a continental buffet set out in the main breakfast room. The coked food we ordered was very good however. Before checking out, we went for a lovely dog walk across fields directly from the hotel. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. This is a proper, very good quality, dog friendly hotel. I only wish we had had longer.. Which just means that we will need to return to enjoy the hotel and surrounding area in a more relaxed pace.

Beautiful family run hotel. Extraordinary level of service, wonderful food ( good for veggies), warm cheery staff. Amazing house and setting. Small enough that there is an intimacy to the service that difficult to achieve with a larger hotel. We visited for a special weekend with my 87 year old father and his octogenarian friends. Very exacting standards! These were all duly surpassed and they are planning next trip. Well done Lords of the Manor!! My tiny bit of negative unimportant feedback is that the wonderful interior is all a bit beige which felt a little dated. I wanted to run around with a pot and brush and spread warm Farrow and Ball colours everywhere!

This property feels more like an old style English manor, rather than a hotel. Even the rooms don't have numbers, but quaint names like Walsingham, Wellington etc. No key cards here; just a big iron key with a large bronze tag. In fact, there is nothing high tech about this place; and we loved it. .My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in August this year; and we were made to feel at home right from the start. Our room wasn't ready, so the receptionist personally escorted us to the bar (as distinct from the tea room and dining room) and arranged sandwiches while we waited. She then came back to escort us to our room and have our bags placed as per our preference. The room was quite spacious, with a separate sitting area and a walk-in closet. Regardin the food, breakfast (no plebian buffet) was included and you could order anything from french toast to a full English breakfast (provided your stomach was strong enough). Lunch and dinner was a la carte and served by a very polite and friendly staff. And of course, we had to try the high tea, which cannot be adequately described, but has to be experienced. The only negative point that there are no restaurants or pubs within walking distance. Of course, the most stunning atribute of this manor is its location; smack in the middle of the Cotswoldes, with extesive grounds that meets all your expectations of the English countryside. If you grew up with Keats and Shelley, this place will meet all your expectations.

Definitely try their high tea! If you can, take it in the back garden. It is absolutely beautiful and was the highlight of our trip. The Lords of the Manor staff went above and beyond and were over the top accommodating.

We spent four nights at Lords of the Manor in September as part of our honeymoon. We wanted a perfect English country manor experience for our first visit to the Cotswolds and that is absolutely what we got! The hotel and its grounds are beautiful, our room (Tracey) was comfortable with amazing views, and the staff (especially Neil!) were incredibly helpful. Make sure to ask them for walk suggestions, they provide very helpful instructions and the walks in the area are beautiful. The breakfast and dinner in the Dining Room (their casual restaurant) were very nice and cozy. Food was well prepared and very enjoyable. Staff is very accommodating for special requests. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Beautiful rooms, delicious food and stunning hotel. We had a great time at the hotel and Keegan at the bar makes the best piña coladas we have ever tasted! The room had 2 bathrooms and was very spacious. The only criticism I have is that upon check-in, the receptionist (female) was not particularly kind and rather stroppy. Other than this the staff were all amazing! I highly recommend this hotel.

If you described a classic inn in the idyllic British countryside and visualized it in your mind…beautiful gardens, attentive service, stone buildings and a relaxed ambience…then Lords of the Manor is for you. In addition to the generous room and attentive service, with sufficient modern convenience, the Inn is situated between some of the most picturesque villages in the Cotswolds. Finally, we had a wonderful eight course meal in The Atrium Restaurant and a lovely tea in the garden.

The welcome was lovely, with all the staff making the hotel feel like a home from home. The property and grounds are immaculate and the location is perfect for exploring the Cotswolds. We stayed in the room 'Witts'. A huge room with wonderful views over the front lawns and gardens. We ate in the dining room on one night which was perfect. It was the perfect place to slow down and enjoy the company of others.
