Stayed one night here to attend wedding. Unfriendly no welcome too busy serving customers in bar to notice hotel guests! The noise was unbearable, loud shouting going on til 1.00am. Did not sleep well. Would not recommend if you want a good nights rest and a friendly welcome. Breakfast ok although the tea was tepid.

We enjoyed 1 night here as part of a trip to the Cotswolds. We chose the hotel because we wanted to get the train from charlbury to oxford and the station was only a short walk away. Our room was comfortable, had a lovely view and had everything we needed for our stay. We ate dinner on the night of... More

Rooms nice, clean and spacious. Good choice for breakfast. Went Oxford on the train as station is a few minutes walk and journey takes 10 mins for £6 return. But the main attraction is the staff hospitality which is Kat and Tatiana, all I can say is they like eggs for breakfast :-) But thanks to all the staff there... More

Food very good but room very cold, we could not get the radiator to work, we did ask but was told the thermostat had to kick in, it never did. Saying that we had... More

I stayed at the Bell with my daughter on the Friday night, 27th December 2013, the day after Boxing Day. The pub was fairly quiet and I got the impression we were the only ones staying there. We both had spacious rooms and were very comfortable. The rooms were right above the pub, and there was some noise from below... More

We stayed here to visit family in the village. Parking was easy and plentiful and the welcome was efficient. If coming by train pre-book a taxi as it is a bit of a hike with bags. We were in room #3 which overlooked the street. There was no road noise but the smell of cigarette smoke from outside the pub... More
