“Following a loving restoration, this 18th century abode has been catapulted into the 21st century. Sixteen lovely rooms with original features decorated in soft hues and country style. Rejuvenate in the Spa, relax by a roaring fire and feast in the excellent restaurant. A gorgeous relaxing getaway.”

Hotel Overview

“The Painswick is a Cotswold gem set in the beautiful and unspoilt ancient wool town of the same name. It is a quiet retreat and ideally located for excursions to some of Gloucestershire's most delightful towns and countryside. A tight car park followed by a short climb up a double stone staircase to the front door and your hard work is over. Glimpses through to comfortable rooms, with the promise of goodies to come, tantalize. The sixteen rooms are pleasantly spacious, with an interesting mix of quality contemporary and period furnishings. An abundance of fluffy towels, gowns, quality linens and pillows plumped to bursting make a dive straight into bed hard to resist. Bathrooms are similarly pristine and airy and come with roll top bath and separate high spec shower. Drinks before dinner can be served fireside in the upper drawing room - a spacious but cosy space with carefully chosen decorative furnishings, contemporary paintings and a fine array of cushions brightening the many comfortable chairs and sofas. The beautiful dining room still boasts fine architectural features and an original parquet floor, and the food is fabulous and very reasonably priced. Post dinner, retreat to the lower drawing room for liqueurs, herbal tea and coffee where you'll find another roaring fire and arty coffee table tomes to peruse. Breakfast is another culinary treat; sensibly sized portions, fresh as can be, served in the sunlit dining room. The service is exemplary - staff at The Painswick Hotel take great pride in their place of work and whilst their dress code is informal (jeans with white shirts), they are tidy, charming and ever present. ”

The Painswick

"Decked in a medley of greys, blues and greens and with striking prints and graphic artworks on the walls, The Painswick exudes chic comfort."

Originally published by The Telegraph (view article)

The Painswick Hotel and Restaurant

"The kitchen is overseen by Michelin-starred chef Michael Bedford – an indication of the ambition and quality on offer throughout the Painswick Hotel, which extends to many generous-size rooms, with their stacks of books and harmonious mix of country house and industrial-chic decor."

Originally published by The Guardian (view article)

Hotel of the Week

"Each of the 19 rooms is themed, with period engravings. Many look out over the valley, and our choice had a four-poster bed, overdosing on deep Georgian blues, gold caskets, fireplace and twinned baths, complete with rubber ducks."

The cool hotel guide

"Head down a narrow twisting lane in the picturesque village of Painswick and a vision of honey-stone south Cotswolds loveliness arises: the Painswick restaurant-with-rooms"

Originally published by The Times (view article)

Fresh, Witty, With A Great View

"There’s a neon sign just inside the entrance, bakelite phones with a sheep face in the center, vibrant colors everywhere, carved rams heads over the beds in the 16 rooms, and philosophy statements in signs such as “Earth Without Art Is Eh.”
