This was an over night stop to drop our daughter at Oxford. Good points : Breakfast was good, location was good, some staff were friendly. Bad points : after travelling 175 miles, the first thing I wanted was a shower - the shower did not work (even when 'fixed' by the manager). The shower room smelled a bit too !.... More

Excellent location if you need to go to Oxford airport but other than that there wasn't much to say! Indifferent staff who made me feel like I was a nuisance at breakfast and actually started clearing my table while I was still eating. Room unbearably hot and reasonably clean but the shower was hopeless and hardly worked. Room over the... More

Stayed here last year as it's very close to the airport. This time I was in a single room, quite small, no much space to hang things up. Reasonable priced. Bed was very squeaky but comfortable, room was lovely and warm. Digital TV with tea/coffee facilities, free Wi-Fi worked fine this time too :-) Breakfast was very nice although opened... More

We were greeted by asking for payment up front which to me is always a bit suspect. Then taken to our room by a lady who seemed friendly enough. The room was very basic and on the ground floor. When trying to fall asleep we were kept awake by the room upstairs by noises that no one needs to hear.... More

Attending Bonhams classic car auction less than a mile away so was very convenient. Food and staff very good. Room was very poor but at under £50 didn't complain. I wouldn't recommend room 5. Other rooms probably better

Great welcome and service from the staff and lovely breakfast. The room was very basic, smelt abit musty and damp. The shower did not work properly, went either stone cold or near the boiling. We didn't even bother with a shower on the day we left! When we turned the bed covers over, to our horror we found other people's... More

Staying six nights we were welcomed and assisted by all members of staff and locals at all times. Settled next to the canal in a beautiful countryside location, clearly the hotel cater for many different clientele and they look after their locals also. There are only two short comings for this hotel one being the buses which are restricted after... More

My wife and I stayed her in the middle of June and must confess to be baffled by the bad reviews. Other than a housekeeping problem when we checked in which we really should have drawn to the management's notice we had an excellent two nights stay. Our room [no.1] was excellent, our stay was made all the better for... More

When I read the other bad reviews of the this place I thought they were being too harsh, but our experience confirmed everything bad others have said about this place and worse. DO NOT STAY HERE - absolutely NOT recommended. Highway robbery indeed. Have any of the staff had any hospitality or customer service training? My guess is not. Especially... More

Have recently stayed at this so called hotel, please take heed of this and other reviews and don't go. The hotel website describes its self as the best hotel in Kidlington, if this is the best I would hate to see the worst! The room was little more than a glorified cupboard very very basic and worn. They did not... More
