“Having met Peter at the time of our purchase of the Puesdown and taken easily to his manner and style, he was an automatic inclusion in our options for an agent when selling. Having also looked at other options, once we had met all our potential candidates and considered their pitches, he stood out above the rest. Having instructed Peter, he set about marketing our business in a thoroughly professional manner and during what turned out to be a very challenging sale, he maintained a calm composure, provided solid and sensible advice and completed the sale at a price that was above the asking level. I would not hesitate to recommend Peter to other vendors, nor to use his services again in the future.” Paul Sutton vendor of the Puesdown Inn February 2018

Thank you very much” Brian and Margaret James, Cricket Field House Salisbury Sept 2017

Thank you – 10 out of 10!” Jeremy Shaw, vendor of the George Hotel, Cheltenham February 2016
“Peter’s long experience of this market was evident and he followed up all sales leads and chased up interested parties post viewings. Having dealt with other Hotel Agents in the past we had a very jaded view of your competitors. Following our experience with Peter and his team however, I would have no hesitation in recommending Colliers as being head and shoulders above the competition. You exceeded our expectations. Thanks for a job well done.” Paul and Anna Galvin vendors of Banbury House Hotel June 2014
"In the Cotswolds, there is only one man and one company to deal with, Peter Brunt from Colliers International. His inside knowledge of the pubs and hotels throughout the whole of the Cotswolds area is staggering, a walking commercial encyclopaedia of this hospitality sector. A straight talking, honest man to deal with, Peter will tell you "as it is" which long term is the only successful way to achieve the desired results. I have no hesitation of recommending Peter to anybody looking to buy or sell in this area, in fact it would not be such a smart move if you did not talk to Mr Cotswolds first!!"
