The entrance smelt of stale food which permeated into the bedroom was awful. (They need to leave the front door open during the day when it's not cold). In the room the mattress was uncomfortable & one of the club chairs needed throwing out or recovering. There was also a motor which came on and off which kept me awake... More

We wanted to visit Compton Verney so decided to stay here - only 5 miles or so away. The setting is lovely and the view from our double room was delightful, over the garden. Our daughter's single room was also very nice - a true single, a decent sized room with a large single bed. We ate in the bar... More

Stayed for my birthday in the Houndshill... lovely country location and grounds, good impression, room was lovely and big, a few spiders lurking but we looked past this as its probably quite common in the country.. the proprietor was very welcoming and helpful, breakfast was nice. Overall a very pleasant visit

Arrived Friday lunchtime and were shown to our second floor room which was up a very steep staircase and shown no fire escape. Room was clean, but very dated a bit like an old fashioned bed and breakfast which was confirmed with the breakfast times, 0800/0900 on Saturday and 0830/0900 on Sunday - no chance of a relaxing lie-in. Bar... More

There was tea and coffee with lots of milk in the room. We decided to have supper in the restaurant ,which was a good choice, fillet steak was just... More

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at The Houndshill on a short trip to Stratford.The Inn is conveniently situated some 4 miles from Stratford on the Banbury Road which is not that busy / noisy. The place has been described as dated in a number of reports which is true to a point .However this is more than... More

I've been going to the Houndshill for nearly 40 years and as far as I am aware it has been run by the same family all this time. I have never had a bad meal in all that time and is always my favourite place to go, especially on special occasions - I had my 18th, 21st and 40th birthday... More

We stayed for one night on 28th February 2015 as we were attending a conference nearby. On arrival the hotel seemed deserted but when the landlady arrived she was pleasant enough and showed us to our room which was like stepping back into the 1970s. It was clean and the beds were fairly comfortable but the room was SO cold.... More

I hadn't been here for many years and wasn't sure what to expect. What I found though was a warm, inviting bar/restaurant with a roaring open fire, comfortable seating and plenty of choice on the menu and at the bar. I plumped for the vegetable lasagne and although there was a token lettuce leaf on my plate, the lasagne and... More
