Limited menu, over tired decoration, rude staff, dreadfull service. Large dining room was left empty so we were cramped in a tiny room with 10 other tables quite a distance from the kitchen. This used to be a four star place with superb service.......now residents eat in onsies and staff would fit in well at a fast food place!

I used the Holt as a base for visiting the Cotswolds, shopping at Bicester Village and exploring various other local hot spots such as Blemheim Palace and I have to say I was very impressed from start to finish. The check-in was smooth, the staff couldn't be more helpful, and the carvery on Sunday was delicious with an excellent and...

Staff were very helpful when I booked the room and offered me a good deal and free upgrade. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed very comfortable with a nice big duvet rather than the old fashioned linen they used the last time I stayed here a few years ago. The bar and restaurant staff were very friendly and...

I booked a table for 6 people for the Sunday carvery, what a mistake that was. The service was terrible and the food had been sitting under the heat lamps for so long and had started to dry up and was only warm. Needless to say we wont be returning.

Booked lunch for 6 people for 1pm. Order for drinks and starters taken, but after 45 minutes the waitress advised that we could help ourselves to carvery. We had to remind her that we had ordered starters! She had lost the order. The starter of chicken liver parfait arrived but was served with a small salad and onion relish, no...

Dear Laura We are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy our Sunday carvery, which is usually very well received by our guests. I am informed that the waitress serving you did explain that the starters would come plated from the kitchen, and that you could help yourselves to the carvery for mains and desserts. The starter was served...

I booked this hotel for myself and two clients as it was a convenient meeting location, central to us both, or so it appeared on the map. In reality it's difficult to get to and nowhere near anything. I phoned ahead to confirm that I would be paying for my clients room and food bills and that they should not...

We let the Tripadvisor reviews put us off, and booked a family room for £39 at a nearby Premier Inn - rather than pay £120 for the Holt. The rest of our family stayed here, and I haven't heard any complaints so far. We had a family meal in the dining room - which desperately needed added atmosphere (music, lighting,...
