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.

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

We stopped off here for a meal... Wouldn't want to stay here !! The bar area was cold and unwelcoming. When the food eventually arrived, the chips looked burnt and greasy. The ham, instead of being off the bone, was more like pre packed ham thinly sliced from a supermarket. When we complained, the woman behind the bar said "well... More

Stayed for 2 nights last week. Extremely friendly, welcoming, family run business. Good food and drink in the evening. Lovely open fire in the bar. Comfortable room directly above but no noise from the road or below. We enjoyed our stay and will be going back.

Stayed here last night with family & colleagues as was attending a wedding reception in Ettington. Charmless and freezing cold best describes it. Breakfast Mon - Sat 8am - 9am Sun 8:30am - 9:00am! Check out 10am. Only consolation is that the whole hotel is so cold that you are happy to escape as soon as possible. Heating (what little... More

After a very friendly reception, we were accommodated in a spacious room for my wife, our dog, and least importantly, me. The room was comfortable but a bit tired. There was a flat screen TV on the dresser and a very large (likely unnecessary) telephone which took most of the space on the central bedside locker. The beds were very... More
