The hotel was very clean & comfortable, with very helpful staff and not overheated in the bedroom. James, in particular, was an excellent one man show - receptionist, barman and waiter - who was more than willing to offer advice and give suggestions. The evening meal menu was extensive and the food well prepared with generous portions. A pleasure to... More

A really good choice on our way north. A lovely,friendly reception. Our room was very comfortable and well equiped. The evening meal was very good and chosen from an extensive menu. Breakfast was very good indeed and freshly cooked. Great value for money. Quiet, peaceful with good parking.

The welcome from James was warm and genuine, carrying our bags to the room. We stayed in The Cedar Room which was spacious, freshly decorated and chic. The new bathroom with jacuzzi... More

Stayed for one night to break up a long drive to Legoland. Our room was a spacious family room with a double bed and two singles for the kids, very clean and brightly decorated. Staff very friendly and the breakfast was excellent, hopefully be back one day!

We stayed one night on our way to Edinburgh from Burford. It was our first trip to Great Britain, and were so delighted with our room. It was large, bright, and comfortable. The staff were outstanding and friendly, and the food was so delicious! We wish we could have stayed longer in the hotel as it was one of the... More

I first booked for a week in May when I started working in the area. I ended up staying at this hotel for five months! It's a proper family run hotel with staff that are genuine, friendly and helpful. It's a welcome change from the usual kind of hotels I stay in for business and its location just out of... More
