Positive Reviews

Stunning views to enjoy.

Because the Rising Sun is set at such a high point up in the hills, near the highest point in the popular and picturesque Cotswolds, it has magnificent views across the Severn Valley. Guests consistently say these views are stunning and help make their stay more memorable.

Excellent for walkers.

The semi-rural location of the Rising Sun makes it perfect for walkers who are visiting the Cotswolds to enjoy the great outdoors. The Rising Sun is near the Cotswold Way, and it is a popular stopping off point with walkers who fancy a refreshing pint of real ale or three after a busy day of trekking.

Good home-cooked food.

The food at the Rising Sun is described by guests as being tasty, well cooked and enjoyable. Furthermore, it is good to note that, in an area where pubs can take their toll on the money in your pocket, the meals are also described by many people as being good value.

Negative Reviews

Some rooms are in need of a refresh.

The general style of the rooms is said to be old-fashioned, and this has led a number of guests have said that the décor in the rooms at the Rising Sun could do with being updated.

Mould in the bathrooms.

Noise from other rooms and the pub.

The rooms at the Rising Sun are adjoining a pub, so you would expect there to be some noise. However, some guests still have complained that the excessive noise has affected their sleep and affected the quality of their stay.
