Tucked away behind a bank of mature trees, Hatton Court sits on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment between the Cathedral City of Gloucester and the glorious village of Painswick. Hatton Court is a reassuring size not large and impersonal, nor too small. As a former splendid Cotswold home, the feeling is one of being eminently comfortable as opposed to grand. Nothing is hurried. Warm soft furnishings balance the picture windows that allow you to take in the broad horizons beneath the escarpment to the Malvern Hills and the Severn Estuary. The peace and the surrounding Cotswold countryside and comfortable bedrooms, some with whirlpool baths, make for a goodnight s sleep. The rooms at Hatton Court offer free wi-fi, tea and coffee facilities, work space and a TV. All have an en suite bathroom with free toiletries. Some have spa baths and countryside views The reception is very much a lounge with armchairs, magazines and an open fireplace for those chillier days. Next door the bar is more a place to relax, take tea, read and talk than to rush. The care taken to prepare the food, combined with a smiling service is complimented by the thought that has gone into creating the restaurant.
