Rooms are individually decorated and come with super-comfy beds, plumped-up pillows and crisp white linen. Those in the coach house are more contemporary in style, with strong, modish colours. Those in the main house are grander with more antique pieces. All have luxurious bathrooms.
The two gorgeous Garden suites offer an extra level of luxe, with French doors leading out into your own private garden. The Valentine suite has side by side rolltop baths, while Magnolia has a large wetroom shower and freestanding bathtub.
Eat & Drink
Lower Slaughter Manor's much acclaimed, AA 3 Rosette restaurant aims to celebrate the best of regional and seasonal produce. The style is modern European, and tasting menus are a speciality. Delicious starters include roasted quail with butternut squash, truffle and pumpkin seeds. Mains include breast and confit of mallard and loin of monkfish, and the blood orange souffle with pisatchio icecream is a great way to round off. There's also a light bites menu with sandwiches and salads.
Breakfast is served until 10.30am at weekends and until 10 on weekdays.
Available any time.
See & Do
Check out the nearby Cotswolds market towns of Stow on the Wold, Moreton in Marsh and Chipping Campden, or take a walk along the stream to Bourton on the Water. You're also perfectly located for exploring the Regency charms (and cocktail bars) of Cheltenham or an outing to the Cheltenham Races.
You can also play tennis on the hotel's private court, thwack some croquet balls on the lawn, wander through the village to Upper Slaughter or simply relax fireside with a Kindle in one of the cosy drawing rooms.
