A surreal addition to the peaceful west country village. Design misfits, rejoice!
Like much of the rest of the English village of Painswick, Cotswolds88 dates from the 1700s. And the exterior is stunning; a proud three-story stone edifice that looks indestructible. Inside, that tough exterior gives way to playful, cutting-edge design with a bit of art-nouveau, some antique touches, and even a pinch of psychedelia.
If you're wondering about the name, the "88" comes from the owner's love of numerology. That, and a belief in Feng Shui, plays into many of the unique and eye-catching design elements you'll find in your one-of-a-kind room. Besides the art and decor, the rooms are spacious and built for comfort, and you'll have a wonderful view out to the surrounding hills.
The 88Room has a unique and enticing menu, with lots of organic choices and locally grown ingredients. The wine list, too, is a compelling mix of obscure and more popular wines and champagnes. The knowledgeable staff will happily help you find something new to please your palate.
