I stayed at Hanswell house recently for two nights while on a training course in Banbury. The B&B is absolutely perfect in every way, clean tidy etc and the owner, Jan, is an incredible helpful and friendly host. Could't recommend highly enough.

I stayed 3 nights with a friend for the Cropredy Music Festival. Took a while to find where to park at the back but that was because I hadn't noticed the map Jan had sent me... Didn't know anyone when we arrived but we got on so well with the other 4 guests at breakfast on the first day that... More

We stayed for a week as it was a convenient location to visit Shenington Gliding Club. Jan was extremely welcoming, not just on arrival, but throughout our stay - she has a genuine interest in people and an enthusiasm for taking care of them, even going out of her way to buy peppermint tea bags for us on discovering our...

We stayed one night with Jan and found her to be a very welcoming and accomodating host, helping us with an extra bed for our youngest daughter, airing of a wet item of clothing needed for the next day, advice about where to eat and providing us with a voucher towards the cost, lift to the station the next morning...

I only stayed one night but it was great. Jan is a great hostess and we sat out in the garden drinking tea and eating homemade biscuits. There was a good choice for breakfast and everything was of a really good quality. For example all the homemade jams and the sausages and bacon is locally sourced. I would definitely recommend...

My wife stayed here for one night on our way to a function near Oxford. We chose it because of reviews on TripAdvisor and it turned out to be an excellent choice. Jan was very welcoming and helpful; our room (the Cropredy) was roomy, well-appointed and spotless; and breakfast (served to order) was as good as other reviewers have noted.... More

Hanwell House is a great place to stay if you are driving through the Cotswolds (as we were) or as a base for a longer trip to the area. The entire place is very clean, and nearly every possible need you may have has been anticipated. Jan is a gregarious host who will treat you well, provide recommendations for things... More

This was an excellent base for a 2 night stay. Everything was very clean and fresh. Breakfast was made to order and offered good choice. We appreciated the use of locally produced ingredients, home-made preserves and cookies. Tea and biscuits on arrival made for a nice welcome. Hostess Jan has a great friendly manner and took care to ensure that... More

My husband and I have just returned from 3 nights stay with Jan and Nigel. I cannot fault a single thing about hanwell house and it's fantastic owners. They go above and beyond everything expected of them. Jan was just brilliant. We stayed here because we were attending Silverstone each day. I would thoroughly recommend. The drive to the track...
