Hanwell House
Ranked #1 of 37 Banbury B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 16, 2011

This was a lovely guest house to have stayed in, we wanted to break up our journey to London and so chose Jan's accommodation based primarily on the trip advisor reviews. We were not diappointed. The greeting is very friendly and welcoming plus the house is immaculate. Our room was well appointed and the breakfast the next morning was delicious, which set us up for the day. Jan recommended trying the "Old Auctioneers" restaurant in Banbury that night for dinner which we did, it was lovely and very cool inside. Thanks for a lovely stay.

We have stayed twice at Hanwell House and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others. Jan and Nigel are excellent hosts and the breakfast is to die for. We will certainly be staying again in the future. Carol and Len from North Yorshire

I never thought I'd find overnight accommodation that could match the price of the usual budget-stay hotels without having to accept 'the bare minimum'...however, Hanwell House proved to me that you CAN provide a really welcoming, comfortable, 'Home-from-Home' B&B run by people who are actually interested in you as a guest AND with all the benefits and features of a decent hotel. Lovely room (Edge Hill) clean, tidy, quiet, with an en-suite shower and toilet and a REALLY comfortable bed. And when I asked for porridge for breakfast (which wasn't on the menu) I got the real thing--not the packet variety either. I'll be back!"

Room Tip: Speak to Jan---but 'Edge Hill' was fine.

Jan and family provided a perfect setting for a trip to see Banbury and visit friends in the local area. The welcome is incredibly friendly and the owners provide a fountain of local knowledge for anyone visiting the local area.

The B and B is located just outside Banbury and offers a high standard of ensuite rooms for visitors. Also make room for the breakfast which is a great thing to wake up to before starting your day!

I stay in hotels about 120 nights a year in the UK and abroad, this is the first time I have stayed in a B & B. I can honestly say that like everyone else, that I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience. From the quality and cleanliness of the room, free internet, Freeview TV, to the warmth and friendliness of Jan and her welcome.
I will be staying there again when I return on business and would have no hesitation in recommending Hanwell House to anyone looking for a place to stay in Banbury!
