Christmas Review


It was another wonderful year for The White Hart Royal Hotel & Eatery signed off by an amazing festive period. From the excitement and atmosphere of the Christmas Day meal to the New Year's Dinner it was a pleasure to welcome so many new and familiar faces to the Hotel.


Below are a number of reviews taken from TripAdvisor from the festive period.

Christmas with the Family 2015

"Well... where do I start. We recently stayed at this hotel, having booked it from nothing but a google search that would be able to accommodate a mixture of ages plus dogs! It was perfect in every way. The staff were so accommodating, relaxed and efficient. The food was delightful and my was there plenty of it! The rooms were all good and there were 16 of us in total. The welcome pack in each room was a lovely surprise and even a doggy bag for the two dogs that we took. There is a lovely high street and good local walks; Broadway is very close. Nothing was too much trouble - special thanks to Duncan and his team for giving us all a very memorable Christmas."


Relaxing Break

"Wanting a relaxing time we went to the White Heart Royal between Xmas and New Year we had an excellent room, the service and food was very good with a choice of restaurant or bar for fine dinning and excellent food. The service we received was very good not too pushy but just there when required. We will return."


Fabulous hotel

"Loved the White Hart hotel. Took our pooch for a mini break over the Christmas period. The service was superb, loved the little doggy gift bag and food waiting in our room. Sarah the head receptionist made us feel extremely welcome, as did the other members of staff. The food in the bar was lovely, as was the roaring fire to sit by. Great location with access to the entire local area. And really loved the Oxford Garden Room which we were shown before we left. Will definitely have to come back for a stay in that one!"


Les Routiers Wedding Venue of the Year!

Les Routiers Wedding Venue of the Year!

It is with great pleasure that we can announce that the White Hart Royal Hotel & Eatery was crowned Wedding Venue of the Year at the Les Routiers Awards 2016.


It’s been an amazing year for The Coaching Inn Group with many award nominations and accolades across the group. The latest of which was for our own hotel as we were crowned Wedding Venue of the Year by Les Routiers – a guide to the best independent restaurants and accommodation.

Beating off stiff competition from the likes of The Sharnbrook Hotel, Bedfordshire and The Alma Inn, Lancashire, the award instead came home to The Cotswolds to be proudly displayed at the hotel.

With a choice of rooms for the ceremony and reception as well as packages to suit all budgets, The White Hart Royal offers a unique wedding experience. Based in the heart of the Cotswolds, a wedding at the White Hart Royal promises to be a picturesque and memorable occasion for all involved.

We still have dates available for weddings in 2016 and 2017 so click here to view our weddings page.

hotel history cotswolds history-small history-small2 cotswold history ancient

The hotel was once a coaching inn. Its reputation was enhanced when King Charles I sheltered in the inn following the battle of Marston Moor on 2nd July 1644. A copy of the King’s unpaid bill is commemorated on a plaque within the entrance lobby.

The principal part of the hotel was built of sandstone under a pegged oak roof in the early 17th century. It was substantially extended in 1773 and 1782 and now these original buildings have been lovingly restored following a major refurbishment programme supervised by conservation officers from Cotswold District Council – there are no modern extensions to this grade II listed property. The hotel’s collection of period artefacts and paintings reflect the four centuries of its evolution while guests now have use of facilities equipped to 21st century standards.
