This is our second stay at the Whately Hall, we returned after having a such a lovely time previously and were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome, we were offered a choice of room in either the old part of the hotel or the more modern new part, we opted for the old part and were then offered an upgrade for half price. Money well spent, we stayed in room 33 which was more of a mini-apartment with a bathroom and TV/reading room on one level then up a couple of steps to a small landing with built in wardrobes and into the bedroom which had a lovely view of St Marys Church and Banbury Cross. The room was tastefully decorated complete with creaky floors and original stone windows (double glazing has been put in but at least you can still see the original features). The hotel has some fascinating history and alledgedly its own ghost - which thankfully decided to leave my husband and I in peace! The hotel is ideally located at the top of the town and bars and restuarants are only a short walk away, the main shopping area is only a 10 min walk. Special thanks to Liam who checked us in, he was very helpful and friendly - a credit to the hotel.
