On the outside, it’s a honey-coloured traditional Cotswold mansion but on the inside Cotswolds88 Hotel is something of an entertaining story describing the nature of quirkiness.

Highlights
Features
Location
  • Enjoy the masterfully combined elements of exquisite Italian design resulting in a glorious jaw-dropping style that you would not expect of the Cotswolds.

    The striking wall paper, boldly shaped and colourful furnishing work rather well with the more traditional features of the mansion’s public quarters as well as bedrooms.

    There are 17 rooms to choose from, each of course uniquely themed creating an experience rather than just a comfy bed for the night.

    Good to Know

    If you can afford it, skip the rooms with a view and book one of the luxury bedrooms which are bound to heighten your sense of enjoyment.
