Top floor rooms in this hotel are affected by the sloping ceiling and the so called "built in wardrobe" is actually a small broom cupboard. Also in our bathroom the old roof beams extended into the bathroom and especially into the shower so I had to make a spider check on a regular basis for my partner, who is very... More

Good room with everything we needed. Nice bar, good food at dinner and breakfast. Lovely staff, particularly Scott who seemed to be everywhere. We walked in the Cotswolds then stopped over here before visiting Blenheim Palace. Then home via Bicester Village.

We stayed here as we were attending a wedding nearby and it was lovely. The room was nicely decorated and comfortable. We had lunch in the restaurant and it was superb. They catered well for gluten free too. Couldn't fault this place and would definitely stay again.

What a great place, I/we couldn't fault a single thing about our stay! Accommodation, location, staff, service, food, drink... was beyond all expectations and was a perfect place to stay! We would most definitely stay again...

A truly wonderful hotel, staff really friendly and helpful and room very clean and comfortable. We only stayed one night on way home from a London trip , but would highly recommend this quaint and well managed hotel for its atmosphere, position and service.

Our meal was to celebrate an anniversary. I requested a little more privacy on this occasion but was not to be. We were sat in the middle of the restaurant with children on the next table and in front of the kitchen. So don't expect them to understand romance! The staff were all dressed in black and it all seamed... More

This guest was quite a challenge and I am sorry that the table we carefully selected for her did not meet with her expectations! Although we try not to encourage later bookings for young children, we certainly welcome families, children in tow. However this particular guest requested a rather early booking of 7pm, quite reasonable time to accept other bookings... More

From the welcome and assistance at check-in from Scott, to a very pleasant meal with friendly service in the restaurant, makes this a good choice for a stay. Close to access to Blenheim Palace, and P & R to Oxford. The one downside though, which prevents a 5 star rating, was the room. We were in the roof, and while... More
