Arrived with booking confirmation in hand to be told that there was no record of our booking and they had no rooms. After further discussion it appeared that there were rooms but only 1 had access to hot water. They did offer to send us to another hotel but it was a few miles away and inconvenient for our meeting... More

I cannot recommend as it was one of the most filthy rooms I have ever seen. I cannot understand why they could not be bothered to give the rooms a clean. There was dirt & bits all over the floor obviously hadn't been vacuumed for weeks. In the room (for two guests) there was a kettle with tea bags sachets... More

Booked a room for 1 night, to coincide with a visit to the Bicester outlet shopping village. Great location, in the town centre, and a few minutes walk from the outlet. The staff were very friendly, and helpful, but that's where the positives end. The place is an old historic inn/ hotel dating way back, and on the surface, looks... More

This place has to be a health hazard. In common with other reviews on here when we arrived with a copy of our booking - they had no trace of it. Perhaps this should have been the warning to leave - the next warning which was pay up front we definitely should have heeded. We were fortunate that the night... More

Our stay started badly with confusion at reception- we were initially told there was no booking. Once that was sorted out we were shown to our room. The place looks very tired and in need a vacuum cleaner. However our room and bathroom were both quite spacious. The bedding was snowy white. There was a good shower and the bathroom... More

Booked this hotel through a website as I needed a hotel from which to attend a wedding at a local venue. Inexpensive but not cheap. Looked O.K. via on-line blurb. Checked in and paid for two nights on arrival. Not really a hotel. A pretty scruffy pub with rooms. Stairs leading to the residential rooms in worse state than the... More

An echo of other bad reviews, or a warning. My brother and sister-in-law gave us a surprise weekend for our significant birthdays; a magical mystery tour. The town turned out to be Bicester, which for some reason beyond me, is pronounced Bister! On arrival at about 1.30, we could not check into our rooms, there was no food available, as... More

I too booked a room early Nov 2012 after purchasing Grand Prix tickets for my husband for Christmas only to discover upon arrival on Saturday that we had been moved to The Almond Tree hotel, no explanation given just simply an over booking error. Did the people who stayed in "our" room book before November? Alternative accommodation very clean and... More
