The Lygon Arms is one of England's oldest hotels, dating back to at least 1532. Set in the village of Broadway at the foot of the Cotswold Hills, it's a great spot from which to explore the surrounding countryside. 

A short stroll away are the Ashmolean Museum, an arm of the renowned museum in Oxford, and the Gordon Russell Museum, which celebrates the Arts and Crafts designer. The village also offers a selection of shops, as well as Broadway Tower, which boasts uninterrupted views of the Cotswold countryside. 

Sudeley Castle, Snowshill Manor, Hidcote Manor Garden and the postcard-worthy villages of Chipping Campden, Bourton-on-the-Water and Stow-on-the-Wold are all less than 20 minutes' drive. There are ample options for day trips nearby, with Stratford-upon-Avon a 30-minute drive away, and Blenheim Palace, Warwick Castle and Prinknash Abbey all around 45 minutes.

The hotel has retained many of its original features such as wood panelling and flagstone floors, and the grounds feature floodlit tennis courts, archery and a croquet lawn. All guests have free access to the hotel's health club which includes a gym, a spa, a plunge pool, a sauna, a steam room and a heated indoor swimming pool. We've also negotiated a spa treatment with lunch and bubbly for £45.

The fine-dining Great Hall restaurant is set in the hotel's 17th-century hall, with an open fire, barrel-vaulted ceiling and minstrels' gallery. Guests can also dine in Barrington's Brasserie for more relaxed bistro fare.

There is a cosy bar, plus an array of lounges that are perfect for a spot of afternoon tea.

Enjoyed Most: The location and facilities
Other Comments: This Hotel requires a lot of money spending on it as it is looking very shabby, which is very sad as it is a beautiful old building in an excellent location. It used to be the "best" Hotel in Broadway and is now a shadow of its former self. The breakfast, whilst adequate, was not well stocked with a lot of items not replenished. The staff were not keeping up to date with table clearance and we witnessed a waiter dropping a bottle of milk at the entrance to the Kitchen and no one cleared it up immediately - the other staff just walked through the mess! We had to wait a very long time for our hot drinks and toast although the order was placed as soon as we were seated.

Enjoyed Most: The complimentary bottle of champagne, bowl of fruit and card from the staff to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary - we had stayed at The Lygon Arms for part of our honeymoon and also on our 30th wedding anniversary and enjoyed our previous visits.
Other Comments: Poor housekeeping/cleanliness of the bedroom - a pair of socks left on the carpet from previous occupants of the room; bathroom not cleaned thoroughly before and during our stay. I made reception staff aware of the bedroom cleanliness and will discuss this and other issues with someone more senior now I am back at home and have access to telephone (poor mobile reception in the Cotswolds) CONTACT ME IF YOU REQUIRE MORE DETAILS

Enjoyed Most: Everything, the hotel is lovely, the situation in Broadway is fabulous, the valet parking is a bonus, the staff are fantastic, thanks so much. xx
Other Comments: The restuarnat was full so we ate at a superb local pub The Swan. Book in advance of arrival if you want to eat in the restaurant.
PETA Aug 22, 2016 Lyndhurst, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: The drinks service in the courtyard - we nearly walked away. The rooms were ok but we had to ask for a fan and top sheets and blankets on a very warm night, these should always be available without asking.
Other Comments: The breakfast VERY disappointing in every way. We had to send the scrambled eggs back and the buffet was poor and the toast unbelievable.
Susan Aug 21, 2016 Bosham, United Kingdom
Enjoyed Most: Position in the village and comfortable bed.
Other Comments: Service disappointing at breakfast - took 15 minutes to get our order taken.
