|Over 300 years old, The Moda House is an exquisite and impressive 3 storey Grade II listed building.|
The house dates from the 17th century, originally housing the 'Bank of Chipping Sodbury' and publishing bank notes, examples of which are held in a London bank museum.
In 1795, Mr. Ebenezer Ludlow, a well-known local man, was the owner with Mr. Septimius Hardwicke in occupation.
At the end of the 19th century, Dr Alfred Grace, who was related to the famous cricketer W.G.Grace, lived and ran his practice from, as it was then known, View House.
|The name Moda was chosen by Dr Haig Sarafian, who came to live and work in Chipping Sodbury and chose to call the house Moda after a suburb of Constantinople, where he grew up.|
In the early 1970's after a period of redecoration and refurbishment it became a hotel. As you would expect from a building that dates from the 17th century, our bedrooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes, all with their own distinctive character.
They do have in common well appointed bathrooms with power showers and cable TV. Six of our rooms have a magnificent view of the town and the countryside beyond.
We take great pleasure in creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere which enables our guests to relax and unwind in a quiet and comfortable environment.
It is a winning formula that keeps our guests returning time and time again.

Lying beneath the splendid Cotswold escarpment is the charming town of Chipping Sodbury. As the Chipping in its name implies, it was once an important market centre in medieval times and stands at the cross roads on the main route between Bristol, Oxford and London. The long market square is bordered with a wonderful assortment of houses with largely 17th century Cotswold stone buildings or Georgian of mellow brick. Almost 150 buildings in the core of the town have been listed as having special historical or architectural value, with some buildings dating back to the 15th century.
The town is also famous for being the birthplace of JK Rowling, author of the Harry Potter books and was once home to Edward Jenner - the first doctor to successfully vaccinate against smallpox. At the end of the 19th century, Dr. Alfred Grace, who was related to the famous Downend cricketing family, lived and ran his practise from 'View House' as The Moda Hotel was formally known.
With its wide bustling market street, rich heritage of architectural styles and original medieval town plan, it has a unique character. It is surrounded by beautiful countryside, rolling farmland and many 'honey' coloured limestone villages which makes the Cotswold region one of the most treasured, toured and timeless destinations.
