Fantastic Country Stay
Our family greatly enjoyed our stay at the Old Band Room. It was very cozy. We loved having our lunches in the garden. Close enough to nearby towns but far enough out to just enjoy the lovely nature. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice quiet holiday.
What a wonderful review, Megan, thank you. We're pleased to hear that you greatly enjoyed your stay at The Old Band Room & we hope that you visit again soon!
Beautiful Cotswold property
Beautifully restored Cotswold property. Very clean and fully equipped. Just needed more help with understanding the heating as we had a cold and rainy few days.
Thank you for your comments – we’re happy to hear you liked the cottage. As new owners, this was the first time the heating was used since the property changed hands, and therefore we were not aware that there are two master controls for downstairs and upstairs heating. I’m glad that we were able to resolve the issue during your stay though, and we have now updated the instructions to give more detailed information on how the heating works, including pictures. We hope you’ll visit again.
The home was clean and larger than expected based on the pictures. The outdoor area near the water was SO peaceful. I’ve never heard so many doves! Our only complaint was the lack of hot water, but I’m pretty sure that was just due to us not knowing which dial or button to push on the water heater.
Thank you for your positive review and we are glad you enjoyed your stay but sorry to hear about the hot water. We have a 250l tank which reheats as it is depleted to ensure sufficient hot water at all times for guests. We will however review the instructions within the guest book to ensure that future guests don’t encounter any problems. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Old Band Room again.
Perfect Cotswold Cottage
As a first timer to England, I wanted to stay in an authentic Cotswold cottage and we couldn't have been more pleased with our accommodations. The cottage met all of our expectations: clean, comfortable beds and bathrooms, quiet location. The only improvement to the rental would be a combination washer/dryer instead of just the washer. We used the drying rack, but even with lightweight clothes, it took a while for things to dry, and since the only outside area is across the driveway, there was no area to put clothes outside to hasten the drying process. All of the interior stone walls and beams made me so happy. And we were able to take our first hike right outside the door, up the hill and continue on to Bourton-on-the-Water, the Slaughters, and back to Naunton. Happy sighs could be heard upon returning to the cottage after exploring the towns of the Cotswolds. Driving on those very narrow, winding Cotswold roads was a bit unnerving, but we managed to return our rental car unscathed.
Wow, thank you for your wonderful review of The Old Band Room, Patricia. We're pleased to hear that your first time to England and the Cotswolds was a pleasurable one! We hope that you visit us again in the future.
Fantastic cottage, even better than expected.
Great weekend, thanks to HomeAway. Very easy from booking to end.
Thank you for your review, Jeffrey. We're pleased to hear you had a great weekend away. We hope you visit again soon!
Beautiful property in beautiful surroundings
We had a lovely three night stay here, as did our Lab Oatie. The cottage is cosy, welcoming, clean, and has almost everything you need for your stay, including dog towels and feed bowels for the pets! I'd just say that the kitchen is a little sparsely equipped (more oil, salt and pepper, ie the real basics, would be appreciated) and the knives really need a good sharpening as they were all blunt. However, the welcome biscuits were lovely, and we felt at home from the second we walked through the door. It was the loveliest weekend away we have ever had, so thank you so much for providing such a wonderful get-away.
We're so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay at The Old Band Room. We will take on board your comments about the kitchen, and get the knives sharpened.
Hope to see you again soon.
