The Spread Eagle has the advantage of being located in the heart of Thame High Street and as such is a good base for the town and local area. Further it seems to be the only real hotel choice in Thame, so in this regard is able to name its room price with the only real challenger being the Travel lodge on the outskirts of the town.
The SE hotel itself steeped in history as a coaching Inn and as such has a great deal of character in its original buildings but at the rear it has been developed with modern rooms plus it has good car parking to the rear.
For my recent visit I was allocated a front bedroom facing on to the high street which was comfortable and adequate. However it with no ceiling light and one bed side bulb was blown, so the room was very dark and although it caused me no real problem, it would be an issue to any one requiring bright light...i.e. to put on make up.
Also apart from the fairly expensive room rate, to add insult to injury, you are then required to pay to park car overnight in their car park!
Staff helpful and friendly but the like the room rate, the food and drink are priced top end for what is fairly standard drinks and menu items.
In summary, good for an odd night but its an expensive experience, some may say, overpriced when considering value for money and exactly what you get for it.
