Jan and Nigel have a lovely, immaculately clean home, and they are very welcoming and accommodating hosts, going above and beyond to be helpful. (The homemade cookies in our room on arrival was an appreciated extra.) Breakfast is made to order and was delicious. Our room, the Croperdy, was very comfortable. I rely heavily on the honesty of Trip Advisor... More

Jan and Nigel are very welcoming, friendly and helpful. They have good local knowledge. The Croperdy room was clean, comfortable, spacious and overlooked the garden. Lovely touch was the home made cookies in the jar beside the complimentary tea, coffee and hot chocolate tray, and on top of that coffee was proper cafetière style. Breakfast was served in a lovely... More

Jan is very friendly and welcoming. Hanwell house is very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing (lots of homemade goodies). Would stay again with out a doubt. Just a short walk around the corner is a nice enough pub with a few shops and a very nice Indian restaurant, which is very handy if you have had a long day... More

Conveniently located for M40, but quiet with good rural outlook. Large modern house, impeccably presented. Friendly, informative and helpful hosts. I would stay here again in preference to hotels in the area....but with more time to spend.

We enjoyed staying here very much. We felt very welcome. The room and bathroom were very clean and the breakfast was excellent. The surroundings of the house are good, it is a quiet road. Nearby are a pub and an excellent Indian restaurant! An overall excellent place to stay and absolutely good value for your money.

Jan is genuinely friendly and made us feel totally at home over our 5 night stay. Jan is very perceptive as to her guests needs and was ever helpful. Her suggestions for dining and for places to see we're tailored precisely to our needs. The room was neat and clean, the bed was very comfortable and the breakfasts superb. We... More

Just home from another three nights stay in Banbury and, as always, Hanwell House was our first choice accommodation. Keenly priced, welcoming, scrupulously clean, and excellent breakfasts. What more could you ask for??

The four of us (two older couples) had a very comfortable stay at Hanwell House for three nights. Jan and Nigel could not have been more welcoming or informative hosts, and the breakfasts they served were just superb. The location is quiet (on a medium-busy road, but residential area so quieter in the evening), parking is private and near the... More

From previous reviews we expected a great B&B and although our stay was very brief our stop-over exceeded expectation. We were encouraged to take our glasses of wine into the garden and we 'chilled' as the shadows lengthened. Inside all the boxes were ticked; large soft towels, very comfortable bed, lovely furnishings and the home cooked food top rate. Make... More
