Wifi was poor unless... More

A little research on tridadvisor went a long way in enjoying a very nice stay at this property for six nights. I had asked for a 'quiet' room in advance. I was given a room overlooking the lane next door and it was very peaceful. The room and the toilet was immaculately clean and were attended to every day. Everything... More

Would have been nice to have had a double bed rather than 2 singles. Breakfast was average, they had run out of hot water and croissants which was very disappointing. Good... More

Hotel standard better than expected, well located for station, Oxford & London visits. Breakfast very good, room large & comfortable. Would recommend rooms at the rear where more quiet. All in all good value for money

A very nice, welcoming and comfortable hotel. The staff were very polite and the room was one of the best we have stayed in. The bed is massive, easily the biggest we have slept in, and soooo comfy. THe quiet room we booked was just that, even though the hotel was busy we didn't hear a peep. Breakfast was delicious,... More

- did not like the hospitality - the room was not up to my expectation - the staff was ignorant at times and did not give enough importance to my requests and needs - was not satisfied with the level of service

Dear Hayley. Thank you for your review and feedback. I am pleased to see you liked our hotel.
