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

Spent two nights here in late Sept. If you were to ask what lingers in my memory of this hotel, the word "Pine" would be foremost in my mind. It sits on the Stratford /Banbury road fortunately with good sight lines either way when exiting the hotel since it is a fast stretch of road. We arrived at 4pm to... More

Went there to stay close for a family wedding. Some of us arrived in the evening and two the next day. We had a meal in the evening which was tasty with a good choice. Portions were generous and cooked perfectly. Next morning there were 5 of us for breakfast and we all had different requests as to what we... More

Had a very enjoyable stay at the Houndshill. It was in lovely grounds and very quiet and peaceful. It was nice to get out of the bustle of Stratford. The room was spacious and had an excellent bathroom. The meal in the evening was a bit mediocre with not a great deal of choice but ot was ok. The breakfast... More

We came here as a family to celebrate a birthday, and found service excellent and the entire demeanour of the place welcoming. The room ceiling caved in from a broken sewage pipe from upstairs and went everywhere but was dealt with efficiently, we had a full discount on our room so everything from the drinks to the room were complimentary...
