As soon as I hit the ten mile radius of the Dormy House Hotel the landscape changed to postcard pretty and I felt my hunched shoulders relax. Autumnal trees lined the narrow roads and fluffy sheep dotted the fields.
This stylish, fancy yet welcoming hotel is a guaranteed ticket to relaxation.
My Dormy House Hotel Review
Two very kind gentlemen greeted me by name (very swish) at my car door (sadly not so swish) and whisked away my overnight bag and laptop, taking them straight to my room.
I was escorted to the jaw-droppingly stunning reception desk – a chunky wooden piece of art, let alone a desk. The fireplace roared in the front lounge and a lovely scented aroma filled the air. It seemed the hotel was keen to impress my eyes, ears and smell.
A down to earth, yet professional lady gave me a brief tour of the hotel which made me all the more excited to see my room. From the three lounges to The Garden Room (an impressive glassed area for formal fine dining) and The Potting Shed (stylish, rustic pub dining), I was blown away.

Dormy House Hotel Rooms
Contemporary styling that wouldn’t look out of place on the front of a glossy interiors magazine; simplistic and homely, yet indulgently classy and impressive. From the mustard armchair, to the arty light features – I wanted every single piece of Dormy House furniture.
I stayed in a ‘Splendid Room’ (one of four types of rooms, excluding the suites), number 18 to be exact. It is tucked away in the far corner and felt like my own little cottage.
I had my own front door (complete with adorable letterbox), hallway (furnished with a very cute stone owl ‘do not disturb’ sign and a big umbrella – it is England after all) and a separate bedroom and bathroom that were so pretty they made me do a little (okay, big) excited skip. Oh, and as if that wasn’t enough there was also a beautiful patio area to capitalize on those rare sunny moments.
It was contemporary, modern and stylish – my favourite combination. A snuggly white duvet, thick wooden beams, a Moroccan style lampshade, an aubergine desk, plush armchairs, linen drapes, a tablet to order room service or surf the net….what’s not to love?
I could have happily slept in the bathroom if needed. The Temple Spa products (Good Hair Day shampoo, In Good Condition conditioner, La La Lagoon aromatic bath and shower gel, Peace Be Still face and body balm, and Quietude calming mist) were amazing. Trust me, I spent a long time trying them all.

Breakfast was served in the Garden Room and was a classy feast of everything you could ever wish for.
For dinner I ate in the Potting Shed restaurant-pub (see link for full review).

Overall Thoughts on Dormy House Hotel in the Cotswolds
The best way I can describe my experience at Dormy House Hotel is ‘the good life’. It oozes five star luxury, but in a homely, comfortable way that snuggles you like one of their dreamy dressing gowns. It’s really is a refreshing balance.
The £10m redevelopment project has been money very well spent. Even with my critical eye, it is faultless and I don’t think I could have imagined a more perfect hotel. With a generous checkout of 12noon, I reluctantly left this escapists dreamy Dormy retreat.
Prices are upwards of £200 for a ‘Splendid Room’ on a bed and breakfast basis. If you’re budget can’t stretch to that consider the more affordable sister property, The Fish. Looking for another luxury property in the Cotswolds? Try The Rectory.
