Almost cancelled our three night stay after reading other reviews, but it was the most convenient place for us to stay to visit family within walking distance! Upside was the great breakfast - rather too large and excellent quality. Full English was huge, so tried scrambled egg on toast next, but still too much! Downside was the room, which was... More

I visited this premises, as this has been the selected venue for our "works Do" a game of Aunt Sally with Bar B Que. I knew of it's reputation, but decided to keep an open mind and went along. On entering I went to the bar to order a pint of bitter ( Ale) and was shocked and amazed to... More

We stayed in the Highwayman Hotel as I was doing the Race for Life for Cancer Research and the hotel we usually stay in was fully booked due to a wedding. We were shown into a ground floor twin room near to the car park which was ideal as we had our dog with us. When I went into the... More

I visited the Highwayman pub for a birthday lunch with friends. The food was good however I was less than happy with the attitude of the manager. He was very rude and grumpy. I can safely say that not one of the 12 of us will be visiting this place again.

Four of us stayed here one night as part of a cycle ride from Derby in the UK to Monte Carlo, and this was our first night. The beer garden in the sun was lovely, with the canal running alongside it, and sitting there after a day’s cycling was great. However – this is a hotel at the cheaper end... More

It is what it is... Built in the 1700's. A basic pub with rooms, some of which are small and some are fairly large. Everything creaks ! Furnishings are old and basic, the plumbing is something else and the shower pulsates between hot and warm. Room cleanliness is basic and could easily be improved on, but we had a good... More

Even the staff don't have a very high opinion of the rooms, I was told I was lucky as I had one of the good ones. I was upstairs in room 2 and initial impressions were OK. Good room furnishing, big tv, plenty of tea, coffee, chocolate and biscuits. However, the double glazing had failed causing a big opaque patch... More

I stayed at the Highway to take my commercial pilot exams at OAA (Oxford Aviation Academy) the location is ideal if you need a short walk to the airport for any reasons. As this was the first time away for my age 18!, the Staff made me very comfortable every evening when I needed to study, they had a lovely... More

This is a bit of a tatty pub with rooms. However, the rooms were clean and quiet. The plumbing is a bit odd. The food is good and so is the beer. The breakfast is good. Beware it takes a long time to get into Oxford by bus! It is convenient for drivers. Good value for money especially if you... More

The landlord of the Highwayman Hotel told me literally: "I guess you must have been completely mistaken when you chose this place. You must have been aware that you did not book a hotel but a bed and breakfast which is an Indian takeaway!" First of all, should you travel on Sunday without a car, you will be lost. There... More
