A historic hotel offering a modern stay

Lying close to the South Gloucestershire village of Old Sodbury, on the edge of the Cotswolds, the Cross Hands Hotel is an attractive 14th century posting house that blends old world charm with fresh, modern decor.

You'll find period features throughout the hotel, including in each of the 21 spacious bedrooms, which also have large, comfortable beds and bright en-suite bathrooms. The hotel has everything you need for a relaxing stay, as the late Queen Elizabeth II discovered, when she took advantage of the hotel's renowned hospitality after being caught in a winter blizzard here in 1981.

The hotel is dog friendly with some of the rooms especially set out to accommodate your four-legged family members. With so much countryside on your doorstep, it's a superb destination for dogs. You'll just need to call 0345 608 6040 to check availability and complete your booking to secure one of our cosy, dog friendly rooms. Sitting on the western edge of the world-famous Cotswolds, the hotel is perfectly situated to explore both this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and nearby Bristol too.

Head out into the Cotswolds to discover outstanding countryside, picturesque villages and market towns, country houses, castles and even a palace. Venture in the other direction, and you'll find yourself in bustling, vibrant Bristol. You'll discover a city with a unique character, offering wonderful shopping, fantastic bars and restaurants, and plenty of cultural attractions.

Tuck into a hearty meal

You'll find a wonderful, traditional bar and restaurant on the hotel's premises, perfect for relaxing with a drink or tucking into a hearty meal after a day in the Cotswolds or Bristol. The bar serves up fine wines, quality Greene King beers and soft drinks, alongside sizzling steaks, succulent burgers, pub classics and more.
