Dormy House Cotswolds Review

Our Rating

I found Dormy House on a recent issue of Conde Nast traveler. When I told people about it, they either didn’t know it or thought it was an older hotel in the Cotswolds. The hotel is a quick drive from the adorable town of Broadway, also known as Cotswolds’ jewel box. The hotel is brand new, and lovely. Just 40 rooms so a nice size, feels intimate and small but has all the amenities you need. Service was great, they remembered our names, activities, etc and were always around to help (apart from once when I needed something and couldn’t get anyone on the phone). Little adjustments would make it 100% perfect, like a nice simple map of the villages of the Cotswalds available to guests on request. But if that is the biggest flaw, it means its great. And they were also very busy, as it was Valentine’s weekend.

Potting Shed, their casual restaurant, and one of the spots you can also have breakfast.

Our room (number 20) was lovely and spacious, but was on the ground floor and a bit noisy, I suggest a higher floor next time, and one with a tub. Seems like only 10 rooms have showers and we had one of those 10 rooms.

You can also lounge pre or post spa treatment in this cute area that serves cakes, cupcakes and all. Or you can just settle for the water and sorbet you get after your treatment.

We had breakfast at the hotel both days (included in the hotel rate), and they even accommodated us when we woke up at 10:15am Saturday, past the 10am breakfast finish time.

Toast comes in a cute bag (below), which keeps it warms. They have yoghurt and fruits and the works, plus you can order a la carte (part of it) such as The Full English, French toast, etc….

We had dinner at their fancier resaturant one night, The Garden Room. See separate review on dinner.

    It’s a little gem. They’re happy to serve you in nearly any room about the house, so you’ll find folks drinking & dining in all sorts of cozy nooks–we had our champagne by the fire and coffee in the game parlor.
