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...

Stayed overnight whilst visiting stratford (only 4 miles away). Large room at top of several flights of stairs, my bag was carried up for me. Very comfortable bed and good shower. Great breakfast and friendly staff.

My friend and I ( both Kiwis) found the Houndshill Inn very friendly, lovely food ( the owner is the chef so you'll always get good meals) a good room and excellent service. Only setback was the lack of reception in our room but I think most of the others were ok. A good place to make for if you... More

Friendly welcome, very large and comfortable room and bed. Breakfast good too. Some furnishings a bit tired but new tv and powerful shower and bath. Great view over woodland and fields. will return as so handy for RSC and Cotswolds.

We received a lovely friendly welcome from the lady owner and were directed to our large room which was well appointed with an en-suite bathroom and separate toilet,both lovely and clean. We ate with our friends and the food was lovely, service very good and very caring. The grounds are substantial... More

We booked here when we couldn't find a caravan site for the night. It was a pleasant little hotel with friendly staff. The food was great and the room was spacious and very comfortable. Nice setting too with tables and seats across from the carpark. Value for money too.

Spent the evening at stratford races, decided to have something to eat on way back to Banbury. We were greeted by a friendly young girl who took our order. The food was very hot, not to much and cooked well, and the desserts were lovely. Good value for money and would certainly eat there again.
