Bathroom was terrible, grubby tiles with dirty grout and next to no water pressure, Toilet seat was an old wooden affair with a sticky underside.The only place to rest towels was the rusting radiator, bedroom area was OK. Went into the bar area to order lunch and was told the kitchen was shut, this was despite me saying to the... More

Pleasant situation, north of Witney. Attractive pub with rooms in courtyard. Large car park and quiet surroundings. Reasonable welcome; booked dinner for work colleague & self. Room 6; a family room was spacious, but quite dark inside. Room on ground floor, so when family arrived in room above, the sound of footfall was intrusive. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was dowdy....

My husband and I booked a one night stay here coinciding with our visit to nearby Blenheim Palace. We received a friendly welcome from the young woman at the bar (where we had to check-in) and she directed us to our room ("Betws-y-Coed") on the ground floor in the nearby "motel style" block. Our standard double room was spacious with... More

Two night stay , lovely spacious room. Bathroom clean and functional but would benefit from an update- a little tired. Having said this it did not distract from a very satisfactory stay. Bed comfy, pillows great! Would have appreciated comfy chairs ! We stayed in this hotel with family members and they were also very happy with the hotel. We... More

We received a nice welcome at this rural pub. Because the weather was fine we had drinks outside and looked over the menus. One of our party was very demanding, but they took it all in stride. They have several dining areas. For the "Ye Olde Englishe" experience, take one of the interior rooms. We were seated in the new... More

Myself & husband stopped here last weekend. The accommodation was wonderful, clean & well presented with ample tea & coffee available in the room. The food in the pub/restaurant was superb as we had breakfast and an evening meal. We would stay here again.

We have just enjoyed a three day stay here. It is a very quiet location, so excellent quality of sleep in comfy rooms which are around a courtyard slightly apart from the main pub building. Food is also a strong point - we ate here two nights and one member of our party for all three. Extensive menu with wide... More

The staff were wonderful, nothing was too much trouble, they really put themselves out for us. We were a party of 11 people, from age 4 to 68, but they managed to care for us all. The accommodation is very good, we had four rooms, and the quality was very good. The food was really tasty, well cooked and prepared.... More
