Right in the middle of the pretty Burford High Street - lively little hotel in an ancient building - great breakfast, friendly staff. The atmosphere was lovely - so historic but the bed a little soft for my partner - loved the towel folded into a dog - not often seen in hotels but great fun.

6 months ago I booked a room and requested a quiet room suitable for a family. The establishment has rooms towards the back away from the pub. Instead we where put above the bar, the bar closed at a reasonable time 11, and we thought we would be able to sleep, but unfortunatly Tina Turner and Co where having a... More

We stayed at The Golden Pheasant for two nights (Saturday and Sunday) to attend a family celebration and, given some of the adverse reports regarding the hotel we were somewhat apprehensive, however we were pleasantly surprised overall. Checking in was efficient and courteous, our room was ready when we arrived, it was situated in the courtyard at the rear of... More

Stayed here after wedding at Cripps Barn. Hotel is nice and clean and breakfast was very good. Breakfast staff excellent, lady very attentive. At 7.30 we were woken up by the beer barrel collection, which went on for about 20 minutes, barrels being tossed onto back of lorry. Room was as expected but we were right beside a building site!...

We visited as a group of 8 and despite being a busy 7pm on a Sunday evening they found us a table quickly. Although a tad expensive, food was worth every penny and one of the best meals we've all had in a while. We waited around 40 minutes for food but it was only to be expected for a... More

accommodation in great place, but after reading other reviews, I note that other guests had also reported the Extractor fan not working in the same room that we had, and low and behold, I had reported this issue, which had obviously been ignored on previous times.(even though the owner said thanks for telling me, we need to know this type...

Thankyou for the feedback. I recall having the conversation about the fan with you. I'm sorry you felt that I was disinterested but I was actually cashing up the till at the time. I'm just a man that finds multi tasking a little difficult. You may also recall that you only informed me that the fan wasn't working on your... More

Yay: Staff were pleasant. Breakfast was good. Room was clean. Nay: Bed was a little hard. I was awoken by construction (I think it was in the building, but could have been next door) at 8:30am. Overall, I think the room (I paid £60 for a Sunday night) was a little expensive for what it is but I have a... More

Felt like I had to post after reading jpmalloys review . We stayed on the same weekend and thought the hotel was perfectly acceptable for what it is , a pub with rooms . Our room ( bunting ) was clean , spacious and comfy with a nice oldy worldly character . It was quite expensive at £125 for the... More

Looking for a dirty, overpriced hotel in Burford run by an incredibly rude and arrogant man? Look no further. No wonder the Golden Pheasant has been taken off the local tourist office's list of recommended hotels and that it is the bottom ranked hotel in Burford on TripAdvisor. It is amazing that the AA still considers this a three star... More

Well we expected to receive a review from this customer. It seems that she checks into hotels and agrees the price.Then after she has stayed the night, and having had breakfast, she and her partner attempt to bully and coerce the staff into providing a large discount or threaten to write bad reviews about their stay. People like this should... More
