Stayed on a Sat night at the Centre, walked straight there from the Ridgeway walking trail. Hostel has a spectacular view and a really pretty garden to sit in. Keith, at the centre, made everything very easy and was very welcoming. Had a lovely fish and chip supper ready for us within about 30 mins of us arriving and a... More

If you ever have the chance to come here to eat outdoors in their the court yard surrounded by the old barns from which it is built be sure to take take it. Surrounded by rebuilt barns there is an attractive and sheltered garden where you can sit to enjoy the flocks of swallows swoop around darting in from time... More

Set on a hill, this hostel commands lovely view towards Wantage and Oxford. We have not stayed at many hostels like this but this was better than others. The individual bedrooms were adequate, cleanish and with reasonable conformable bunk beds, The main living area again was fine as was the kitchen, though it was not very well equipped, and very...

Thank you for the review, we do hope you visit the centre again, our new self-catering kitchen was installed about 3 weeks after your group stayed. At the moment the centre is looking its best in the lovely sunshine. More

We have called in to the café at the Court Hill Centre on a couple of occasions for a coffee and a cake. The location is superb with amazing views across the Vale. We have enjoyed sitting inside near the log burner on a cold day and in the courtyard garden on a warm, sunny day. A mug of coffee... More

We stayed at the Court Hill Centre and we all had a great time. The rooms had fresh clean bedding and being able to self cater in a very well equipped kitchen plus the staff had loads of goods walks that we could do. This is very much a youth hostel that is used to school children, so in term... More

We stayed here the first weekend in March 2013. We were a mixed sex group of 10 between 32 - 42 years old. I personally have never stayed in a hostel before so please bear that in mind when reading the review. To begin with it is hard to find, the website provides a general 'how to get here' but... More

Lovely place, impressive views. We didn't actually stay here, we were walking along the ridgeway when we stopped here for a drink and food. The service was awful, the girl was rude and did not want customers, even though we were the only people there. Awful service, wouldn't suggest anyone come here unless no other choice.

We were walking the Ridgeway a couple of weeks ago. The weather was getting pretty stormy and night was fast approaching so we were relieved to find ourselves close to the Courthill Centre. We rang to check it would be ok to stay and were surprised to find that they were not able to accommodate a tiny backpackers tent because... More

As with many people who stay here, we were walking the Ridgeway.This hostel is so convenient only a few minutes off the path after a long day's walking. Its a typical hostel environment with dorms although they have plenty of smaller rooms to sleep 4 people. The showers aren't great and could do with replacing but the public areas are... More
