Reading these other reviews I'm amazed at the praise The Lismore gets. The hotel is old fashioned, the staff were the basic average of what you'd expect at a hotel and the scambled egg was disgusting. I don't usually give bad reviews but then we normally stay in better places.
This was a last resort as my boyfriend had to see his family near Banbury last minute. They have made half the car park into rooms, looks like a motel entrance. They are done so poorly I don't know why they bothered. The decorations were horrible, the boarders didn't match and they got paint all over the windows. The bathroom stank of mould, the room was small. They put a tv on the wall but if the person sleeping on that side needed to get up in the night they would have knocked themselves out. The door had a window so it got light really early. The towel rail collapsed when I touched it so all the towels fell into the toilet. It was noisy all night
On the plus point it was very clean...I have to give them that.More
