The best thing about this place is the staff. The manager on reception on our arrival was very helpful and having seen one of us had difficulty walking, allocated us a ground floor room without being asked. Restaurant staff were also very accommodating and friendly, especially Sharon. Room 6 is modern but sparely decorated with no finishing touches and basic... More

Staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room was nice and clean; with a comfy bed. On the downside our room was at the front of the hotel so it was a bit noisy, the room was also very hot, however a fan was provided.

Stayed here for five nights while working on an event at Blenheim Palace. Witney is a lovely little village with a good variety of pubs and restaurants, good local shops and a little market that opens a couple of times a week. The rooms are nice but if you're on the top floor and it's been a hot day the... More

A Quirky old Pub building with a really busy , buzzy bar facing the market square . The Hotel is well located although there is no parking on site which can make carrying bags and checking in a bit troublesome . We drove through the Hotel yard and parked in HSBC as it was a Saturday evening to unpack and... More

My wife and I spent a Sunday and a Monday night at The Blue Boar. We had very nice cocktails in the bar, and an excellent meal in the restaurant on the Sunday Night. Both breakfasts were superb also. A few reservations: Minor equipment failures with the room were reported, but during the time of our stay they were not... More

We did not stay in the hotel but came here for dinner on Saturday evening. Lovely atmosphere, very classy. The service was great, our waitress was friendly and attentive. The food came out quickly and was really delicious. We had bruschetta and giant prawns to start and the chicken shared dish for main. Very good value for money and will... More

We stayed here for 2 nights over a bank holiday weekend. On arrival, we were impressed with the look & feel of the hotel, although the manager seemed to be rushed off his feet! We had Room 3 which was overlooking the High Street and although small it was cosy, nicely decorated & clean. The room was also boiling so... More

Stayed for 1 night and had Room 4 which was overlooking the High street. Room was fine, bed was a little lumpy, but overall very nice and clean. Bathroom and shower was clean and good quality complimentary products. I'd probably ask for a room on the back in future as it was a little noisy at 6am with general traffic... More

Stayed here on a Sunday night. At no point throughout the stay would I say the service was excellent. Upon check in we were not informed of the early closure of the kitchen. So at 9.15 when we thought we'll have a nice relaxed meal in the bar, not possible as the kitchen had already closed. We were curtly told... More
