Location: fantastic area surrounded by countryside. There are also a number of pubs on the door step if you fancy dinner out. 15 miles to Oxford and close to Blenheim Palace
Hotel: amazing building both outside and inside. We also took full advantage of the use of the swimming pool and steam room / sauna
Room: not really in keeping with the communal areas of the hotel (quite badic) although refurbishment is clearly under way. Room is adequate and clean
Service: staff polite and the manager obviously cares deeply about the experience of the customers. Not sure all staff do though, I did ask for a couple of things to be sorted which never where such a shower gel in the room. There were glasses in the hallway when we arrived and they stayed there for 48 hours at least, not a big deal but didn't look very nice and the cleaners just ignored them. It took the manager to notice and pick them up! We also came back from a long day out to find we could not get into our room, took the long walk bk to reception to be told that 'its ok we can fix it' which was great but no apology or explanation. Little boggles but important stuff!
Breakfast: we didn't include breakfast in our package and I was shocked to be told it was 14.95 per person. I was therefore extremely shocked to be charged 20 per person at check out! Ouch! That's a lot for a buffet style breakfast which was good but nothing outside of what you would have seen at any other hotel at half the price.
Overall we had a good experience and the hotel is amazing inside and out. Rooms are a little rough around the edges but it looks like this being addressed. Breakfast is too expensive in my opinion but was nice. I would recommend this hotel for a short break in the country. If you fancy and evening out locally go to The Crown pub - great food and friendly service :)
