We chose the Shaven Crown for a special occasion and it did not disappoint. The hotel have been restored to a very high standard . We stayed in the pump room , which had beautiful beams , fireplace and example of stained glass windows. We decided to have dinner on Saturday evening and lunch on Sunday at the restaurant ....

Although it was a miserable cold day we had a lovely warm welcome. The breakfast was delicious and locally sourced, the beef dinner was perfect and quite honestly the best rice pudding ever tasted! A very lovely family and staff running the place and a lovely historic building. Very happy and would consider a stay again, many thanks 😊

We stayed for a weekend in this beautifully restored hotel and the welcome we received was so friendly. The bedroom we stayed in was warm and comfortable with a superb bathroom and we both slept very well.. Breakfast was great with a large variety to select from. The owners can not do enough to help you and we wish them... More

After searching round on the net we found The Shaven Crown... We walked into the rear courtyard out of the car park and WOW... You cannot help but be impressed... The 700 year old entrance sets the tone for the rest of the building... This historical building (recently renovated) does not disappoint... The whole place is so sympathetically and tastefully...

We needed a place to stay for 3 nights to do nothing else than to relax and to be in a quiet peaceful place. The pictures for The Shaven Craven looked idyllic and the reviews were good. Once we arrived and walked through a beautiful courtyard and lovely old gothic style entrance we were greeted by a very friendly owner,... More

We spent days days trying to find the right kind kind of accommodation for our weekend away and in a sea of mediocrity we felt very lucky to find the excellent Shaven Crown Hotel. The owners have only recently taken ownership and have spent a small fortune renovating the building to a very high finish. The interiors are modern and... More

We stayed at the Shaven Crown at Shipton under Wychwood for 3 nights to celebrate my husbands birthday. The hotel has recently been renovated to a high standard. It was warm comfortable and very welcoming and the breakfasts were superb. We would definitely stay there again.

Enjoyed a wonderful two night stay in January. The hotel is beautiful - very tastefully renovated. Some lovely homely touches. I stayed in The Ascot room which was extremely comfortable. Best of all my dog was given an equal welcome and allowed to stay with me. I ate in the restaurant on both nights and absolutely loved the food. Perfectly... More
