We have just come back from a lovely weekend in Banbury. The Bowling Green is a lovely , family run small hotel. The food on the Saturday night was excellent as was the breakfast and Sunday lunch. The hotel is quiet, clean and extremely well run. Nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely be staying again. Thank you Karen... More

Greeting was welcoming, clean and tidy accommodation. Clean and basic rooms, had free WiFi and Sky TV. No double rooms available so had to settle with single beds, not the most comfortable of nights sleep. Breakfast consisted of full English breakfast, not the best I have tasted, lacked quantity, 2 eggs, 2 overdone bacon, 2 mushrooms cut in half, tomato... More

A bit tricky to find without satnav (come on Banbury council, let them put a sign up on the main road!) Lovely food, very clean. Best bacon and eggs I have had for years with eggs from their own chickens. Be aware you can't check in until 6pm.

Awful place, wheelie bins across the entrance when I got there, unwelcoming owner although his wife was very pleasant. Dismal ,depressing atmosphere, although a guest I was locked out of the bar area as the rules are the rules and we dont open until 6 or whatever it was even though i just wanted to sit and relax before ordering...
