“Another top find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Well had to dig out for a room near to Banbury and as I only needed an overnight stay I wasn't too concerned about what I booked,,,im usually a slave to best western points. The Bowling Gereen was clean compact warm,,,even had sky sports in the room. Good value and food very good indeed. Breakfast was spot on just enough but really good quality items. I would recommend it if you need a stay in Banbury. Funny as I write this review the ones at the side of mine bear out what im saying,,,lol

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Greeting was welcoming, clean and tidy accommodation. Clean and basic rooms, had free WiFi and Sky TV. No double rooms available so had to settle with single beds, not the most comfortable of nights sleep. Breakfast consisted of full English breakfast, not the best I have tasted, lacked quantity, 2 eggs, 2 overdone bacon, 2 mushrooms cut in half, tomato and 1 small sausage. Other available breakfast items, cereal, orange juice, yogurt. For the price I would have settled for an alternate hotel had there been one available at short notice.

A bit tricky to find without satnav (come on Banbury council, let them put a sign up on the main road!) Lovely food, very clean. Best bacon and eggs I have had for years with eggs from their own chickens. Be aware you can't check in until 6pm.

Room Tip: I would ask for a room away from the fire doors as they are quite noisy.

Booked a table for 18 people for a night out and it was first class not one complaint which must say something. The owners were very friendly and the service and quaility of the food was first class. I'm sure we will all be back sometime. It was a pleasure to eat in the restaurant and thank you all for making our evening with you a big success.

Awful place, wheelie bins across the entrance when I got there, unwelcoming owner although his wife was very pleasant. Dismal ,depressing atmosphere, although a guest I was locked out of the bar area as the rules are the rules and we dont open until 6 or whatever it was even though i just wanted to sit and relax before ordering my [ mediocre as it turned out] meal in the dingey dining room. One bizarre touch was that there are bit of A4 paper tacked up in the dining room with photoshopped pictures of cuts of raw meat on them, likewise in the breakfast room theres a whaking great food counter, its like the place is having some kind of identity crisis, it doesnt know if its a cheap motel, a 1970's era restuarant or a butchers shop.
I would definately stay again, but only if all of the other B &B's in the area were closed .
