Tally Ho Hotel
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Arncott
Reviewed May 8, 2012

Stayed here on few occasions...Not by choice. It was booked by my company. We also had two Christmas office parties here.

Accomodation is basic and overpriced. Rooms however are spacious. Beds are hard and not comfortable.

This hotel is based fairly close to Bicester Outlet Village.

Food is nothing to get excited about.

There are many better hotels in the area and a lot cheaper.

The Weston Manor was full, so decided to try 2nd recommendation Tally Ho. Pretty basic -- arrived Sunday afternoon, dragged our suitcases upstairs to room 8, but wasn't made up. Back to receptionist who rang someone. Troed room 2,-also not made up or cleaned. Finally found a room. Layout is courtyard and motel like - park outside your room. Rooms are large and warm enough on a cold nit, but rather impersonal.

Breakfast better than expected - both food and service. However spoilt a bit by sterile, school canteen style tables and layout. No warmth.

Reasonable price but SME human touches and service would set it apart.

Room Tip: If heavy bags ask for a ground wfloor room

We booked this hotel on impulse on our way home from Birmingham to go shopping at Bicester outlet village. The staff at reception are very pleasant . The room was on the ground floor and a good size. Unfortunately the walls of this motel style hotel are very thin and you can hear conversations very clearly, Why put only one bath towel in a twinbedded room.? There was a very small amount of toilet roll and no spare - why ? The beds were firm and the pillows are fairly awful but we had just come from staying in the Radisson Blu in Birmingham. Bicester village is not as near as I thought to the hotel.

Room Tip: I suppose that upstairs on this two storey building could have been quieter

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night. Room is good size, bed is massive, everything was clean. There was friendly lady on reception. Plenty of parking spaces.
Breakfast is served in the main building, with a choice of some fruit, fruit juices, tea, coffee and full english breakfast.
If I was going to Bicester I would not hesitate to stay here again.

9 months ago my daughter and her husband to be Adam took me to see the Tally Ho as a potential wedding reception venue. I would normally only book something as special as this having had recommendations.
From the time we booked the Tally Ho to leaving last night, Nicky the wedding organiser at the Tally Ho and her staff were brilliant. The service was excellent, the food was excellent. My 83 year old dad even managed to stay up well past his bed time.
We were made to feel so welcome. If your looking for a wedding venue then book the Tally Ho. I would get in now because I am sure it will soon be known as one of THE places in and around Bicester for holding a wedding reception.
I cant comment on the fitness centre because I never used it
This post is by one very happy father of the bride.

I was quite surprised on arrival. The rooms at this hotel look like rows of houses in a cul-de-sac and there is one room on the ground floor and one on the first floor in each "house". The rooms are well sized, clean and modern and you don't really feel like you're in a hotel which for someone who travels constantly was a delight. You can also park right outside your "house" so there is no worrying about leaving your car on a busy hotel car park and you don't have to carry your luggage very far. I ate in the bar and the food was great and reasonably priced. The bar was quiet, no music, no TV on, lovely!
