Visited on a Bank holiday Sunday when the town was enjoying a Fete and Gala and enjoyed a nice but noisy two night break. Dinner both evenings were good, the staff were pleasant and efficient and the room, which overlooked the road at the front of the hotel,was small but adequate. Problem came early on both mornings when quite heavy... More

I booked this hotel thorough an Amazon Local deal, the photos on the spread eagle website were lovely and I was very happy with the bargain that I had got. Upon first site my husband and I were very happy, however the room that that we were given was nothing like we had seen. The hotel manager Peter came and... More

Its best to look at the Spread Eagle as being more than just a straight forward hotel. For a start, the location is great being right in the centre of Thame and you can easily park your car. Try that in nearby Oxford. As to the hotel, you have the option of very traditional rooms and a suite in the... More

Had expected better. The service and staff generally were good, some being excellent, especially in the bar/restaurant. The food was really good and reasonably priced. The room was the problem. 1970s at best, with the wear you would expect since. The carpet was threadbare, the bathroom fittings broken, luke warm water, it was a very low standard. The bed was...

Stayed there on a Saturday night meal and breakfast deal and upgraded to a refurbished room. Unfortunately I think the room we had (20) was refurbished a fair few years ago as it definitely needs some TLC. From a lack of seal in the bath/shower, a faulty shower/bath tap and no cold water supply to the sink to various stains... More

We stayed here for one night - the room was quite good but not sure about the décor - was a black and silver theme but the bed has a very large frame and our legs were bashed to pieces by the time we left. Also no hairdryer in the room. We had a fabulous meal in the restaurant and... More

A one night stay with evening meal was bought for us by very good friends of ours for our joint birthdays as a gift. When speaking to the hotel to arrange our stay, I spoke to Henry who was very efficient, easy to speak to and following the booking, he emailed confirmation and all the details straight away. I had... More

We occupied two rooms for two nights. The hotel was recommended by the organizers of a wedding we attended. The Spread Eagle Hotel is picturesque in nice old houses in Thame, Oxfordshire, England. It has one of many older taverns in town and might be worth for a drink. Staff at the hotel has been friendly and service oriented for... More

My ground floor (Garden) room was very comfortably furnished in traditional style. The en-suite was roomy and well supplied - but there was no shaver socket! The view from the window was of a tiny walled garden. I thought that £110 for bed and (a good) breakfast was pricey but, when I booked, there were no cheaper rooms available. The... More
