The Experience

This hotel has a guest book signed by Pierce Brosnan and Kylie Minogue but you, your children, and the dog will be welcomed with equal grace. There’s much to do in a huge choice of drawing rooms and good food and drinks are served in several different areas, all lively and bustling.

This isn’t an old-fashioned hushed sort of place: staff wear a uniform but there’s a light-hearted feel and they are über efficient without being in the least fawning. Children have their own menu, can play in three acres of garden and swim in the pool at certain times while you wind down in the spa. There’s even a warm outdoor hose for dogs and wellies.

Broadway has two museums, a fantastic deli and lots of independent – rather expensive – shops, but you’re on holiday. Walk to Broadway Tower in half an hour, hop on a steam train or hire bikes. Return for drinks in the atmospheric bar then dinner in the Russell Room – dogs welcome too.

The setting, service and food were all wonderful. We enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea and the staff dealt with our specific food allergies/intolerances with ease. Would highly recommend!

The neighbourhood

Broadway is a thriving town in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are lots of shops and good places to eat, including The Swan, Russell’s Restaurant and the Broadway Deli. Anybody interested in design will love the Gordon Russell Museum and the Broadway Museum has regular exhibitions and talks. Many good walks start from the town and you can get to Snowshill Manor, Sudeley Castle and Cotswold Farm Park in under an hour by car.

Local points of interest from Kathryn Clarke

  • Explore Broadway High Street with it's abundance of independent shops, museums and art galleries.
  • Take a walk to Broadway Tower for the best views in the Cotswolds.
  • Perfect location for exploring the Cotswolds or Cheltenham, Oxford, Stratford-Upon-Avon and Bath Spa.
  • Dating back to the 14th century, the hotel is steeped in history. Oliver Cromwell stayed here the night before the Battles of Worcester in 1651. King Charles I met with his supporters here and an array of film and music stars have enjoyed short breaks here
  • The hotel’s name has changed throughout history, and the first written record refers to it as The White Hart, in 1377. The hart, a mature stag, was a personal symbol of King Richard II (1367 – 1400).
  • The hotel’s name would change several times, reflecting the political changes of each era, showing how much history would shape the enchanting hotel.
