If there were 200 hotels in Buckingham my guess is that Villiers would still be Number One. Everything about this typical English coaching inn was just right
Starting with the rooms overlooking the court yard which were beautifully furnished in a sort of American colonial meets English Tudor style and much more "roomy" that the usual chain hotel
Right in the centre of the town, it is ideal for exploring "middle England"
The staff could not be more friendly and last but by no means least ,the food was fantastic. The £23 Market menu was a credit to the chef (the scallop risotto was superb and the surf and turf had the best steak I have had in ages) breakfast was cooked to order and served at the table (not buffet --HOORAY!)
Not only that the under cover car park was free!
One last thing --we arrived at 11.30 knowing check in was 2pm but after some effort they found us a room right then. Excellent start to the stay
Cannot wait to return
