At present only c. 12 bedrooms, so there is still the intimacy you get from ` hands on ` proprietors. 4 A A star cooking , with most careful attention to both quality and presentation

We visited in October for a 4 night stay. On arrival at the hotel there had been a mix up with the booking at first it seemed that the hotel hadn't our booking through expedia even though we had checked with both the hotel & expedia earlier. The matter was quickly resolved & we we're upgraded to the Market Room. Thanks to staff for sorting this out for us. The room was tasefully decorated & very spacious.

Unlike many reviewers we chose not to have evening meals at the Bull partly down to the lack of vegetarian choices for me & also the price of the vegetarian main course which I think was around £14. Instead we chose to eat at various pubs in Burford which were all very good. Breakfast at the Bull was good, highlights we're freshly squeezed orange juice & the porridge.
Burford is a really good base to explore the Cotswolds & Oxford.

From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. The Trafalgar suite we stayed in was steeped in history. The service and fantastic food and wine choice was out of this world.Breakfast was just perfect with faultless service and some humour and fun with the lovely owner. I would recommend a stay here as we will definitely be back. Claire absolutely made our stay with advice on where to go in oxford and recommending places to take our grandson to making sure our wine was kept perfectly chilled and topped up! Your an absolute star thankyou for helping to make our stay such a memorable experience.

Spent two faultless nights here at the end of October. The building is beautiful - the floors are charmingly wonky! The bedrooms are stunning, It's in a perfect location to explore the area & the food is out of this world! All the staff we met were very friendly & helpful & went out of their way to make our stay memorable. If you need a treat go here!

Room Tip: I'd park on the road as the car park at the hotel is tight to say the least!

We spent three nights at the Bull and it was excellent, the proprietor and staff were very friendly and the rooms were lovely and very clean. The breakfast was one of the best we have had and the other meals were very good the only comment was that the menu never changed so therefore you could run out of options if staying for any longer.

Room Tip: The room we had was towards the back of the building but it was quiet and very clean and pleasantly...
