Booked this hotel on an Amazon deal. The experience was great. The bedroom was fantastic, the bar and restaurant really comfortable and well designed. Staff friendly and helpful. The evening meal was a delight, one of the best dining experiences for a long time. Good real ale for hubby and wines. It will be on our agenda to have another... More

We loved staying at this hotel. Had visited for a meal when we stayed elsewhere in Thame a couple of years ago and always wanted to return and stay. We stayed in one of the quaint and unusually configured garden rooms, sitting area and large TV on the ground floor, bedroom and bathroom on the upper level accessed by stairs.... More

I recently organised a hen do meal at very short notice at The Spread Eagle in Thame. The staff were all exceptionally helpful and provided me with a room to hold the meal in which was stunning and I was able to decorate. They arranged drinks on arrival for the guests and the 3 courses were brought out quickly and... More

We stayed here for four nights, having two rooms one for an elderly person. On the positive side, the refurbished hotel rooms are good, the beds comfortable and large, the location is quiet whilst in the town centre and there is plenty free parking (you have to ask about this, though). Overall it represents quite good value for money. On... More

I regularly visit Thame and had a one night stay in The Spread Eagle for a change. Staff were friendly, the room was delightful and spotlessly clean, and the breakfast was tasty and served in a relaxing environment. I would definitely stay again.

We held our wedding here on 21st June, our large party stayed for 2 nights in the garden rooms for the wedding weekend. My 'husband' and I stayed in the Gielgud Suite, I couldn't fault it. We had plenty of room for the bridal party to get ready and it was very clean (hats off to housekeeping after we left-... More

we stopped at the hotel for two nights as a deal from a well know voucher company. The room was of a nice décor but in my opinion was more feeling as opposed to looking a little "tired" we loved the way the floor flexed under foot and the stairs creaked under every foot step. not to sure about the...

Thame's Spread Eagle was the country pub for dinner, bed and breakfast in the 1920s. Look carefully at its beautifully designed bar-restaurant area, and you'll see, amongst many joyously individual touches, 'bookends' of novels and essays by famous authors who were regulars here - H.G. Wells, George Bernard Shaw, etc. Our ground floor rooms were really spacious, and while the... More

I stayed here on business - Highs:Comfy bed, very good WiFi and friendly staff. Lows: my room was rather tired ( 80's bachelor pad decor, no net curtains facing onto buildings opposite / saggy curtains held up by net curtain wire). After waiting 35 minutes for scrambled eggs and Salmon for breakfast and then chasing up the order I was... More
