Other than the lack of staff at times, this place was spot on. Lovely unique inn. The room was perfect. The land lady heather would do anything for you and even let us look at other rooms for future visits. We will visit this one again.

We drove to the hotel and had a bit of trouble parking the entrance to the hotel's private car park is quite hidden so we parked in the street (30 minutes waiting time) whilst we booked in. After booking in we found the secret entrance and parked in the little car park. Rooms were very old which was quite interesting... More

Stayed over one night, arrived in the dark, shown our room and where to park and given all necessary information by a very pleasant young woman. Our room, at the end of a long narrow corridor reached by many a twist and turn(!), was lovely. Large, beamed, everything we needed, bathroom also large, looked like it had been newly refurbished....

Myself and my wife stayed here for a couple of nights and I was charmed. This is not the place if you like marble bathrooms and imitation fine art on the walls. It is all nooks and crannies, wonky corridors, staircases in odd directions and (if you believe the stories) ghosts. A rich history as an ancient coaching inn, Roman... More

From when I first saw the hotel I had a good feeling and this was surpassed. It was fantastic! Not only the atmosphere and character of the coach house impressed me, the owner Heather and the staff were extremely welcoming and polite, nothing was too much trouble. Special mention should also go to Jess and Patsie who were fantastic. The... More

Me and my Fiancee stayed here on the 6th & 7th February 2015. The place itself is ok and as you would expect for a 16th Century Inn, small uneven corridors and dark with old damp smells. Our room was quaint and we had a 4 poster bed which was a nice touch. However the bathroom door of our on... More

We stayed at this location in December on a trip to visit family in Faringdon. The staff at the hotel were absolutely tremendous and welcoming, and made us feel very at home including our little girl, we stayed in the Faringdon room which was absolutely enormous, it had a wonderfully big bed, and a very good mattress!

Room (the courtroom) was absolutely amazing, definately had the wow factor. We had evening meal and breakfast and both were presented and tasted lovely. The land lady, landlord and all the staff bent over backwards to make our stay great. The locals were very friendly and welcoming too. Good value for money and definately coming back soon.
