The hotel is nicely furnished - it all looks quite new, but we were put in a room on the top floor at the front. The room was very smart but very air-less,despite having the window open through the night. Also the worse thing was the very noisy people outside in the street. There was shouting and yelling which went... More

Beautiful room, great facilities, extremely accommodating staff and a wide variety of items for breakfast. What more could anyone want?! The staff were always very happy to help and I will certainly be staying again.

We visited Witney last weekend for a family birthday and stayed at the Blue Boar, our room was modern, clean and spacious but up a lot of stairs (no lift). The bed was comfortable. Well stocked minibar (although no price list in room), tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryer, iron and ironing board were welcome features. Lack of car... More

We were menu hopping looking for a decent lunch before embarking on a local brewery tour. We found the Blue Boar in the Witney High Street. We wondered into the bar off the main street and promptly greeted by a staff member who was very polite and took us through to the very pleasant outside dining area. Having arrange a... More

We were a group of 10 and had a nice lunch at the Blue Boar. It has a small outdoor area with tables as well if the weather is good you can dine outside. There is a good variety of food on the menu. Staff is nice and helpful

Thanks to Lateroom's miss-communication my booking at the Blue Boar wasn't fully confirmed so I ended up with two different rooms over my 3 night stay. No bother though it only qualified me better to write this review. The rooms are modern and stylishly finished, particularly the bathrooms. The breakfast was quite posh, I liked the idea of the sweet... More

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
