We recently stayed at this hotel. We've stayed there a few years previously and it was fine but standards seem to have slipped. The room we had was very tired. There was wallpaper peeling off and damp which was not ideal when my toddler suffers with asthma. The chest of drawers had 2 tubs of mini pies in one of... More

Really looking forward to staying here as the web-photo's were fab, bright modern rooms. Unfortunately on entering the room no. 4 I was disappointed, almost had a sulk, was looking forward to a night away and a bit of luxury, the room was very hot, the carpet very tired, very dark and the bathroom circa 1980 ish, horrible looking bath...

My partner and I stayed for just one night whilst touring the Cotswolds. Our room was excellent (plenty of room, very clean, comfortable bed & quiet). The food in the restaurant at dinner was superb (I can recommend the shoulder of lamb) and we were served a delightful breakfast (we had the scrambled egg & smoked salmon). Difficult to find...

We only stayed for the one night but we would definitely return. The room was very clean and spacious and all the 16 rooms are named after Welsh places around a courtyard. We ate in the restaurant in the evening and the food was delicious...plenty of choice and freshly cooked for you. The prices were good too. Lovely Rugby themed... More

What a wonderful place. Lovely friendly welcome, stayed with girlfriends and we had a great evening meal (shame the menu was so tatty, could do with sprucing up a bit!). The food was excellent, the service was too. Our room was spacious, quiet, bed was very comfortable and room was clean. Bathroom did not seem quite as clean as sink... More

Situated just outside Witney on the B4022, this well kept hostelry never fails to please. Immaculately maintained, serving healthy portions of traditional fayre. Great, friendly staff, large secure car park. There is a Welsh Rugby Theme and quirky notices around the inn, well worth a detour for a relaxed enjoyable meal.

Easy to check in and friendly staff. Room 17 upstairs clean,quiet and away from the road. Difficult to find sat nav was an issue and apparently quite common. Not far from Hailey village travelling on the B4022. Car park beside Inn. Good overnight stay.

Stayed for 3 nights with my dog when visiting Blenheim Horse Trials. Good location for the venue, only 8 miles. Staff very friendly only fault being they would pet my dog. Food, full English breakfast meant I didn't have to eat until the evening. Evening meals were also large on portion sizes. Free wifi in my room was a pleasant... More
