A clean, friendly bed and breakfast with a great breakfast and real attention to detail. This is not a country retreat location, but Hanwell House has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Jan and Nigel are wonderful hosts and double as tourist guides!

One of best B&B's I've come across in England. Jan was very welcoming and provides an excellent service. The bedroom was great, felt like I was in my own bed at home. Very comfortable and plenty of tea/coffee and homemade biscuits. Breakfast was a real treat, catered for my special diet. Very reasonable price so I'll definitely be back!

This is a great find - situated just on the outskirts of Banbury so quiet. The house is Jan and Nigels home which is partly what makes it so homely. Every last detail has been applied to the bedrooms, the hotel inspector would find a visit here to be a total waste of time ! They are spotlessly clean and... More

If looking for a B/B in Banbury for sure Hanwell House is the right place to be. Since the beginning Jan and Nigel have been there to make the stay the best as possible and they did. Very nice welcome and excellent breakfast together with very comfortable and nice rooms made the stay very pleasant. In the 2 months which... More

It was a pleasure to stay at Hanwell House whilst on a course nearby. The owners are incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast is whatever you want (ordered the night before) and during my stay the other guests were delightful making it a real home from home. Would definitely stay again.

I've just spent a week at Hanwell House and I enjoyed the experience immensely. Jan provides all the facilities of a major hotel but with the welcome and charm of a first-class B&B. It really is like being at home and that you are 'part of the family'. The quiet room was great (with en-suite shower and toilet), comfortable bed,... More

I ahve stayed here several times and it's always the same, great hosts, great breakfast and very warm and comfortable room, what more could you possibly want in B&B!!!! Jan & Nigel are great hosts and it's no surprise that they get "regular" guests.

Relaxing and welcoming b & b with lovely host and excellent breakfast. Quiet yet convenient location. To be recommended! Very clean bedroom with good amenities and off street parking. If ever in Banbury this ticks all the boxes.

UK B&Bs have come on leaps and bounds recently but Hanwell House easily stands out. Our room was charming, with lovely furnishings, plus nice products in the smart bathroom. The cooked breakfast would have fitted us for a day's walking in the beautiful countryside, rather than the gentle exploration of the historic town of Banbury for which it is so... More

This was a fantastic stay. Jan was lovely really friendly and I enjoyed the personal touches in the rooms with the homemade biscuits. It really was a home from home experience and would recommend it to friends/family if they needed to stay in the area.
