We stayed here as two couples at the end of August. We found the family run inn to be warm and friendly and the food was very good. I think that the owners have got the balance right in terms of not sacrificing the interest and quirkiness of a 500 year old inn and yet still maintaining modern standards of... More

If you want cleanliness and good menu that caters across the board then This is not the place to stay! Rooms are shabby and whole place in need of refurb. Staff friendless is good however some of the younger staff on evening more interested in talking to friends than customers!

We stayed in the four poster Burford room for one night.room and bathroom were lovely but the bed creaked a lot and the mattress sank in the middle which was disappointing. Service and food both excellent but quality of bed is important for a good nights sleep so we feel £140 a night is overpriced.

Lovely little hotel. Room a bit small but clean considering it's basic double it's comfy. Menu looks good & staff friendly & helpful. No parking which being a bank holiday is a bit of a nightmare. Drinks and food reasonable prices. Right on high street so once parked very convenient for shop browsing and spending lol

We stayed at The Highway Inn, Burford during a 3-day catch-up visit with old friends & locations from when we lived in the area, 1987 to 1997. We stayed in the quaint, quirky and very charming Fulbrook room overlooking Burford High Street (but it was NOT noisy). The staff were welcoming and friendly, the breakfasts were great and the evening... More

We were visiting Burford for a family wedding and so pleased we chose to stay here. Our room was the Swinbrooke which made us laugh every time we climbed the stairs to reach it. First you go up about 8 stairs then turn a corner, duck as you go under a low ceiling, then down two steps, take a sharp... More

We stayed at the Highway Inn from the 15th to 17th August. This is our 2nd stay here and we will definately stay again. Our room was the Taynton Room at the top overlooking the high street, you have your own private bathroom across the landing together with low beams going up the stairs, it's such a lovely room.

We had a great stay at The Highway Inn. The staff and the family who run it were so warm and welcoming as soon as we arrived. The food was really excellent and our room was full of 15th century charm with lots of lovely touches and a beautiful four poster bed. It felt like we were staying in someone's... More

We were in Burford (beautiful spot) for a wedding, and the Highway Inn's quaint 15th century charm was welcoming and warm. The age of this place is what gives it its special quality, but undulating floor boards and having to crouch in the shower might not be everyone's idea of a wonderful stay - something that is probably hard to...

Thanks for your review of our hotel. I am glad you found the hotel charming and warm, and that you find it has a special quality. I am sorry that your stay was not fantastic, we do try and get a balance between old and new, the hotel is over 500 years old and many original features such as the... More

Stayed here for two nights. Very impressive and comfortable accommodation in a stunning family run 15th century inn. The breakfast was very impressive and included some of the finest sausages I have ever experienced! Not to mention the generous slice of black pudding which was frankly awesome. Highly recommended!
