We stayed midweek, taking advantage of their excellent Bed, Breakfast and Dinner offer (take a look at their website, there's some really good offers that you need to call them to get). The room was great, surprisingly quiet and constantly warm given the age of the building! Dinner was superb value, and breakfast equally so. Special mention must go to... More

My partner and I stayed here for for a few days over New Years Eve. Great location and staff. Food was truly amazing on New Years Eve and breakfast was good. The room was nice. Only let down is towels were not changed daily.

Thank you so much for your review, feedback is always immensly helpful for us all. I am so glad you enjoyed our New Year festivities - In common with a lot of other hotels we dont change the towels every day unless asked to, but I will alert the housekeeping staff to your comments More

On a recent visit from USA, we were welcomed by a very caring and professional team and enjoyed a couple of nights in a cosy and well equipped room. The perfect place to stay and enjoy Buford and surrounding countryside. Dave and Kathy Kelly, Minnesota USA

Met a friend for lunch here and found the food much better than expected, we all cleaned our plates! Fairly limited menu but can highly recommend anything with chips, they were superb. Very handy place for a break from shopping in Burford.

My fiance and I visited The Highway Inn on a Saturday lunchtime. We had purchased a Travelzoo offer, booked in advance (specifying the voucher we had), and travelled over 30miles to specifically have that offer. When we arrived at the pub, after placing our order, we were told shortly after that the chef didn't actually have the fillet steak that... More

I am sorry you had a disappointing meal at the Highway - I am not sure if you booked and came the same day, but all our meat is fresh so we do not freeze steaks nor do we keep them incase we get a booking, so if you came on the same day as you booked then that may... More

Lovely food and hotel. Breakfast is fabulous and very flexible, and staff are great. The other rooms all looked great. The issue is just with the room Shilton. The room description says 'This room is a cosy double on the first floor with private bathroom bath/shower room'...but you need to know the bathroom is in the corridor of the public... More

Stayed here for the second time on a special dinner, bed & breakfast deal £79 - absolutely superb value for money. Evening meal was fantastic sat in the bay window with a very nice atmosphere and as it was December of course the decorations provided an extra nice setting. The hotel is full of character and very nice and helpful... More

If you want an authentic old England experience this is the place to come! As you wind your way up and around you wonder where you will end up! Our room was on the top floor, complete with sloping roof and wooden beams. The view from the window was of the high street and out across the fields. Bathroom new,... More

I was pleasantly surprised at the welcome sherry on arrival and being shown to a clean and functional suite room that was modern in design but suitably "fashioned" around the 18th century. Bright bathroom, tilting mirrors, heater, big quality towels, spacious and a great shower! The room had a cleaned up featured fire place, drapery that somehow "fashioned" the room,... More

Lovely room with free upgrade. Friendly but not overbearing staff. Room overlooked Main Street but was adequately quiet with double glazing. Good size bathroom and decor good and very clean. Whole experience was good and have already started to plan return visit!
