Room was small, ugly, overpriced and so hot it was uncomfortable. Had a few bad nights of sleep here. The staff don't know how to handle a corporate booking either. Having stayed at The Fleece in Witney I would recommend going there instead. The Blue Boar just isn't up to scratch. The only saving grace is that the restaurant is... More

Very nice hotel, perfectly situated in the beautiful town of Witney. Upon arrival the staff were immediately on hand to check us in which was quick & easy. Nothing was too much trouble. Our room overlooked the courtyard which was lovely although a little noisy into the evening. The room (number 7) was spacious and had everything needed from toiletries... More

We eat here on a regular basis, and the waiting staff are friendly and efficient. The food is acceptable restaurant fare - today we had lasagne and sticky toffee pudding. They are not huge portions, but make for a pleasant meal.

Our experience of this hotel wasn't what we expected, unfortunately. The room was fine apart from the fact that you only receive three hangers in a very small hanging space and very little other storage. We did ask for more hangers and got one! However, the bed was comfy and the toiletries were plentiful. Very noisy, our room looked onto... More

Expected a two street gun slingers backwater. However, quaint market town not as blue as expected. Enjoyed this Oxon parish, country twangs, ponies and a lame donkey. Great pubs, friendly locals and Oxford Burford and Cotswolds scenery close at hand. Inn deserves 4 star deluxe rating, location perfect , reasonably priced and exceptionally managed. Dave you should be proud.

Stayed with kids (7&10) for the night. Brilliant staff. Great rooms. Awesome breakfast. It was a stopover prior to a camp one of my kids was going to. We got hot chocolate when we arrived, as we had a horrible trip from London. Told where to park until 10am for free.

Checkin was swift. Staff friendly. Place is in a small quiet town about a few miles from Oxford. The room was provided for a family of 5 and was large and spacious. Windows needed to be kept open for ventilation and that brought in some outdoor noise and few flies. There is no car parking available and the only option... More
