We stayed here for 2 nights and had a lovely time. The hotel is clean, the staff are lovely and helpful. The bar and restaurant are brilliant. Make sure you eat there, the food is gorgeous and the vegetables are properly cooked not raw. The mushrooms in garlic and cream are wonderful as is the lamb shank and chicken in Jack Daniels sauce. The chef knows how to cook. Very convenient for Blenheim Palace and the Wychwood Brewery in Witney. Woodstock is very pretty and well worth a wander. Don't be put off of this hotel because it's on a main road, you will hear NO traffic noise in the rooms, they are out the back and double glazed. The rooms are clean and equipped with what you need. Hot water is there every time you turn the tap on and the shower was easy to use. We only have one moan about this hotel and that is the mattress! The springs stuck in us all night! Please replace the mattress in 103, it's bad. I used to run hotels years ago and made it a policy to sleep in every bed in every room. It's amazing what you find out by doing this. Other than that this place is fabulous.
