Reviews

4.8
We had a great stay at Robins Roost - perfectly located for lots of great walks straight from the doorstep. The cottage is well equipped and more than big enough for a couple and a dog. The wifi is fast, really powerful shower, nicely heated and comfortable bed. Overall the property was clean although there were quite a few cobwebs around which could have been easily cleaned hence the 4 for cleanliness, although didn’t bother me too much. Overall we had a fantastic stay, thought it was great value for money and would return. Thanks for a lovely visit!

Thank you for taking the time to share your lovely review. We are really pleased to hear you had a great stay and appreciate the feedback. Look forward to welcoming you back to the Cotswolds soon!

The cottage was in a perfect location, really peaceful with no road noise. Ideally situated for driving to many areas within the Cotswolds, and within walking distance to Bourton on the Water across public footpaths which was ideal for us with our dog. The cottage itself is very well equipped, particularly the kitchen as I often find with these places that plates and glasses etc are limited, and plenty of cooking utensils. Really liked the open plan layout downstairs as it was sociable. The bed was comfortable and a king-size so plenty of space - do bear in mind that upstairs has low ceilings though. Small shared courtyard outside which was lovely, a little too cold for us to make use of but ideal just for letting the dog out in the evenings. Some small negatives - when we arrived on the Friday night the cottage was cold; there is a note in the pack asking guests to turn off all radiators when they leave, but it appears the cleaning team do not turn them back on so it isn't the warmest of welcomes in cold weather! Also we had stated that there would be a third guest with us - the downstairs sofa is also a sofa bed and there were spare duvets and pillows in the cupboards, but no spare bedding. Thankfully he was only staying with us for one night, but it seemed a little strange that this was not prepared for as we had informed in advance that we would need the sofa bed. I would recommend the cottage to others, and we thought it was very reasonably priced for the quality and location of the property.

Thank you for sharing your lovely review, Chelsie, it’s great that you found The Cottage at Robins Roost to be well equipped and ideally located for exploring the Cotswolds. We’re sorry you found the accommodation to be cold on arrival and will share your feedback with the property Owners, thank you for making us aware of this. With the rising utility costs, Owners are having to be more mindful of their costs especially as a property can be empty between bookings but thankfully with the weather getting warmer, this will be less of an issue over summer. The sofa bed had been requested for your stay and I’m really sorry to hear that this has not been properly prepared by the housekeeping team. For anything like this, please always contact the property manager listed in the welcome letter at the time of your stay, they’re on hand to help and aim for all guests to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Overall, we’re pleased you had an enjoyable stay and hope that you will be back to visit the Cotswolds again soon.
