“Oh dear ...”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We stayed at Ava house for one night and in a twin room. What an awful shock; basic doesn't quite sum it up. I daren't use the bathroom properly, looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a while plus no hot water. Additionally there was a water pump in the bathroom so when people upstairs used the toilet, we knew about it! The only decent bit was the service and breakfast. Really don't advise staying here, rooms are awful!

I work all over the country and my god what a little beauty I found here. I rang at very short notice and the lady on the phone was really helpful and polite she could not do enough for me ie directions, places to eat. when I turned up at Ava house I pulled straight on to the front of Ava house. I found parking an ease. I was met by a charming man called Wayne, he showed me my room and said if I need anything else just bang on his door and he would be more than happy to help. The room was lovly and clean with all modern facilities. I awoke the next day after the best nights sleep ive had in ages. I needed breakfast at 6:45 to be on the road again by 07:15 and Wayne made the best cooked breakfast going. After a hearty breakfast I departed amazed that such nice people still exist. Ive never stayed in a bed and breakfast before, but from my experience you have opened my eyes. Thank you so much everyone concerned

From the Owner. This person was offered our country location just outside of the town as an alternative when they called, with secure parking. We are in the business of hospitality and don't speak to anyone as though they are a child. There are other reviews where this person says they have been spoken to like a child!! I think all insurance covers where ever you park. Their review is based on a telephone call, they have never been to the property. And we are not the only review they have on here based solely on a phone call!

I booked four nights over two weeks on line by e-mail in march. Just before I left home to go to bicester, I thought i had better check the parking facilities as it was not mentioned on their website. I telephoned and was told there were four spaces and first come, first served but there was space in the pub opposite and more spaces in the public car park around the corner. As I have an expensive, high profile car, I was very reluctant to park it in a pub or public car park as if anything happened, my insurance would probably not have covered this.
I told the lady this and she very curtly told me I should have checked when I booked. I did apologise for being a human and making a mistake etc. etc., but she was incredibly rude and just kept saying I should have checked - I was spoken to like a naughty child and ended up telling her to forget it - I found somewhere else that was/is brilliant (and with mega car park space). Two B&B in Bicester with owners with dreadful attitudes - Bicester you need to clean up your act.

No frills B&B in suburban estate opposite pub - 15 minute walk from Bicester North railway station. Nice room, en suite a little crampt but OK for one night. Shame shower only gave cold water but didn't find out till morning so no time to see how quickly fixed. Would use again, and obviously has regular clients.
