We stayed for 2 nights for a friend's wedding in Oxford. Whilst the hotel isn't as impressive as the nearby hotel where the reception was held, this hotel is ideally located in the middle of the village and retains its historic features (you'll need your sea legs as the floors and ceilings slope), harking back to Admiral Nelson's stay.

Had several meals here and would go back again and again, the food is great, freshly made in-house bread, all locally sourced food, clean and tidy, lots of original character, very nice place to visit.

Hotel with history, sloping ceilings, beams, squeaky floors. Hearty full English breakfast. But . . . the bed I had in room 5 was truly awful. Soft as a slab of blancmange. Mr Manager: fix this and I'll give you five stars.

A lovely old hotel on the main street of a picturesque Cotswold small town.What could be better. The public rooms are charming;cool in the heatwave of the last week or so,and they (especially the upstairs salon) looked as if they would be wonderfully comfortable and snug with snow on the ground.The patio was an oasis in the heat,a lovely place...

My colleague and I stayed at the Bull for one night to attend a training course nearby. It was a rare treat, lovely rooms, fantastic service and the steaks we had for supper, we agreed, were probably the best we'd ever had. Wished we could stay longer as the town is beautiful. Thank you!

Stayed at The Bull whilst visiting The Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford 13/14 July. The hotel was excellent. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful and the place was spotlessly clean all round. As a nice touch they served breakfast 1/2 an hour early for those of us wanting to leave early in the morning for the airshow. This... More

We were first time visitors to the Cotswolds and really didn't know what to expect. Reserved two rooms at the Bull - one for our daughters with twin beds and a separate double bed room for us. The girls' room was in a separate annex location out behind the parking lot. It was newer, clean and had a reasonable amount... More

I have read the recent bad review and I would like to add my imput. I was the mother of the groom and I would refute everything that was written in the previous review about the Bull Hotel. We were a wedding party of 36 people and from the moment we arrived we were made very welcome and the service... More

The Bull in Burford is full of history and uneven floors! We loved the atmosphere and found the staff friendly and helpful. The food was excellent so we ate in the restaurant three times. There was a full fish menu alongside the regular menu. The fish platter starter was a meal in itself. Breakfast cereals were a bit limited but... More
