I love the Bay Tree. The open fires, the little nooks and crannies, the original rooms. And I still love all of that despite coming away from the last visit a bit disapointed. All the good things are still there but the service in the bar and the restaurant is not as good. A number of the staff at dinner... More

We had a very good stay in one of the junior suites and the staff were very good generally except for one female member of the reception staff, of the longest tenure, who would benefit from having her hospitality skills refreshed.

Stayed for a wedding last month in one of the garden rooms of this beautiful old hotel. Old, but completely renovated to an extremely high standard! The room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and luxurious. Everything from the well kept beer to the fantastic food and service made this a very memorable stay. I would thoroughly recommend staying here if... More

Stayed at the Bay Tree for my niece's wedding, what can I say, wow, everything was excellent. My room was lovely with a very big comfy bed and the Molton Brown toiletries were a very nice touch. The food and service were outstanding, what lovely staff, nothing too much trouble, the waiters were attentive without being intrusive. I love Burford... More

This is a proper 4*, built around superb service, good accommodation and food that is so good they deserve a Michelin star. It's all a little quirky, none of your chain chrome and polish here, uneven surfaces, stairs in abundance and niches and corridors to who knows where - just delightful! We stayed in the cottages, rooms named after local... More

We stayed at The Bay Tree Hotel for two nights in early September. The hotel is tucked away on a side street, so you don't hear the road noise. Lovely setting - particularly the gardens out the back. The bar and lounge areas have lovely fireplaces, and although the weather was pretty good, the fires were lit in the afternoon/evening,... More

Had a lovely overnight stay here in a garden room, to celebrate our anniversary. The room was a good size with a comfy bed and Molton Brown in the bathroom, which is a nice touch. We had a very nice 3 course meal included in the package (recommend retiring to the lounge for coffee by the fire) and the breakfast... More

We stayed for one night at the bay tree. Buford is a pretty little town close to Oxford. The hotel itself is gorgeous with a great atmosphere. It's best appreciated with a pint in hand. The rooms are good size and the service is very good. Breakfast is varied and good.

We haven't been to this hotel for about 20 years but it is somewhere where we came to stay a couple of times and also brought the children when meeting friends and family for a Sunday lunch. I have to say that it has always delivered. This visit we stayed on a Friday night under their Friday Getaway package and... More

We enjoyed a 2 night break at the Bay Tree, the hotel is lovely and we upgraded to a garden room. This was a large room overlooking the garden and had a very large and extremely comfy bed. Breakfast was good and the old part of the hotel was very charming. I did think it was a tad expensive and... More
