Pettifers Hotel sits in peaceful countryside near Britain’s oldest town Malmesbury, a short distance from the capital of the Cotswold’s; Cirencester, and has welcomed many hundreds of guests through its doors over the years.

At the time of construction and its re-development to a hotel over 75 years ago the criteria for accessibility were different to those in place today, therefore some of the facilities may not meet current building requirements – however our commitment to improvement has led to many changes to improve accessibility and our plans for the future will improve accessibility wherever possible.

Of our 22 bedrooms we offer 3 on the ground floor and 2 Large Courtyard Rooms which have been specifically rebuilt as “Disabled Friendly”.

The following statement is a summary of our provision. If you have any specific questions please feel free to call us and we will endeavour to help. Other information can be found on our website and in our brochure.


Details of how to find us are shown on our website, together with information about public transport, our close proximity to the M4 and M5 motorways and a main-line railway station Kemble.

There are two designated accessible / disabled parking bays, in addition to spaces for other cars and we offer a pre-booked reservation service for our reception area parking.
