How did you know I'd been there? I suppose it's cookies at work somewhere on the line! It was a sort of reception/presentation to which I was invited. I am glad someone else was picking up the bill because the pre-event drinks (which guests paid for) were top of the range in price. The buffet meal, which the organisers paid...

Dear Douglas M M, Thanks for your feed back. I'm delighted to read that you appreciated our 'imaginative' buffet; we have a lot of experience in providing buffets for conferences and other events and I think that we do it well. The amount of food is of course determined by the event organiser and the number of guests attending. I...

We attended a Christmas party last night (20 Dec) and it went wrong from the start! Only 2 receptionists handling check ins when Christmas and Wedding parties checking in. Standing by door with really cold air blowing in while queuing to check in. Get to room, which was reasonable and big enough, kicked off shoes and decide to relax and...

Dear Malcolm W, Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that, like the previous reviewer, you were disturbed by the fire alarm. As I said, we do have to take this seriously and expect our guests and staff to evacuate until such time as a false alarm has been confirmed and the fire officer has declared it safe to return...

For it's location, just off the M40, this place should be a whole lot better and a whole lot busier. The rooms are decent - well appointed, decent amenities, clean and functional. Sadly some of the staff let the place down. For instance - there was a false fire alarm at 1am in the morning which got many people out...

Dear QXZWS, Thanks for your comments; I am sorry that you were disturbed by the fire alarm activation during the night. I completely appreciate that this was not ideal and until it was established that this was a false alarm, in the interests of the safety of our guests, we do have to treat it as a real emergency situation....

I went to the spa today with my 2 daughters and a friend as a pre-wedding treat. The pool area is tired to say the least with a distinct lack of space and not enough loungers - sitting upright on a hard chair is not conducive to a relaxing spa day. It got worse when matey-boy started to paint/varnish the...

Dear Cherry_dr0p, Thanks for your feed back; I'm sorry to read that some aspects of your spa day didn't live up to expectations and will be discussing your comments with the Health Club and Spa Manager. We are always striving to improve the facilities, hence the redecoration, and are hoping to have more loungers available for our guests. However, on...

We had our Company Christmas party. The accommodation rooms were shabby and very small and could have done with a good clean. Our meal was completely tasteless, I think it was turkey but couldn't really tell with a couple of things that were once a vegetable. We had ordered bacon sandwiches at midnight. Well, they must have assumed that we...

We booked the Blenheim Palace weekend break, which was excellent value for money. Although, the rooms were spacious, clean and well decorated, I found the bed to be very uncomfortable, and did not sleep well on both nights but that was only my experience. The breakfast was well cooked and plenty of choice. We ate in the restaurant both nights...

The Oxford Belfry is a professional event and spa hotel. You can get there easily; coming from LHR - just follow the M40. The hotel is lovely; the service is excellent, the rooms are comfortable, enough space for working and living. The parking place is really big. All the conference rooms have their individual character. The challenge for you is...

The Oxford Belfry wasn't our first choice as we were specifically looking for a more central hotel. However as we travelling with our dog we were forced to look further afield. We initially thought that the hotel would be too far away however this simply wasn't the case, especially using the park and ride system that is only 10 min...

Dear Ruppert J, Great comments, thank you so much! I'm delighted that, although we weren't your first choice, we were "faultless" - some things are meant to be I guess.
