We stayed one night and it was so great we added an extra night. We had the dine and stay package and it was excellent value. This is a very friendly family run restaurant with first rate cooking and a warm welcome to brilliant accommodation. We will be going back again and will probably be on a regular basis. What... More

We stayed for one night with dinner on a walking trip on the Ridgeway and to visit Oxford, this small hotel is ideally placed foe both. Very good value dinner BB deal. Enjoyed the food, traditional Italian menu but well done. Attentive and helpful staff. Thank you.

How can this establishment take on line payment and booking for a room with dinner when it cannot accommodate space in the restaurant - after a telephone call apparently it has been fully booked for many months so why accept and take payment for a booking and then say it will take a week to refund the money

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. We expressed our apologies to you when we realised our error and explained how this mistake had happened. Our online booking system had allowed a room to be allocated as a dine and stay, which we could not honour due to the restaurant being fully booked. This was over looked... More

Room was acceptable but restaurant sadly stuck in the 80's. If you like Barbra Streisand screeching through your meal this is the place for you. Music couldn't be changed apparently... Food poor, ingredients all there, but crudely put together.

Really good food, lovely Rossini Steak. Needs a makeover, very 80's in decor and furnishing.... Looks a bit like a wedding venue from that time. That said, food was definitely worth the trip, high quality.

The room was very good, spacious and the bed very comfy. The bathroom was clean but some of the dials on the showeer were abit wobbly and not working. Overall, we were staying for 2 nights and slept very well. The only disappointment was with the breakfast and that they were not open for lunch, not ideal when there are... More

We have stayed here on the dine and stay package on two occasions over the last few years and found it excellent value. This third visit lived up to expectations. Having read the reviews we booked the Wilson room which was lovely - worthy of a five star hotel. Only slight downside was there was a lot of road noise... More

Hotel was lovely and food was lovely though we struggled to find any staff on arrival or at breakfast time. The staff not being around when wanted/needed and not particularly friendly/note worthy are what let this place down. Room was perfect for what we needed and sadly we didn't get a chance to use the spa bath and tv in... More

I came accross this little gem by accident when looking for a place on the internet and wanted to be close to where my meeting was the next morning. I had read the reviews and thought I'd give it a try as do like to try different places to stay rather than the chain hotels, the rate was good and... More

My wife and i often visit friends who live near Wantage, and they wanted to treat us to an Italian meal at one of their local restaurants. We were not disappointed by either the traditionally styled restaurant, or the food. The menu was extensive and we had starters, and a main course. We just couldn't manage a sweet. The starter...
