We went as a short break to visit Oxford and Stratford, so Banbury was pretty much in the middle. The hotel is a very impressive looking building. Very old coaching inn with lots of wood-pannelling. However, it is not at all stuffy - the staff were extremely pleasant and helpful. The room was very good in terms of size and facilities for the amount we paid. The breakfast was excellent. And Banbury is not only a good base for touring, but is also a sizeable town with its own attractions.
