“Very comfortable”
Reviewed August 29, 2011

Hosts were very hospitable and breakfast good. Bed comfortable and the whole place was spotlessly clean. A very pleasant and quiet place to stay and we would not hesitate to book it again.

The room was very clean, although small. Free Wifi! Nice pub across the street and short walk to town.

The room was well equipped with a small ensuite. Lovely and warm despite sub-zero temperatures outside. The owners were very friendly without being intrusive, and provided breakfasts of excellent quality.
Will definitely stay again.

I spent 3 nights at the Laurels at the end of September. It is one of the nicest and friendliest B&B places I have stayed in recently, and I can thoroughly recommend it. The owners are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are nice - my bathroom was especially good.and impeccably clean. It is a bit of a walk into the centre of Witney if you are not driving, but that is not much of a problem. I will almost certainly return. The value for money is excellent.

I drove up to Witney on a business trip and stayed at The Laurels overnight. We were greeted very warmly and shown to our room. It was quite spacious and had an en-suite bathroom. I've never come across a B&B so clean and well taken care of before! It was decorated very modern and simple with a few lovely touches here and there. It was great to enter the room and feel like this could be your room at home. I am often very leary of bathrooms having had a hotel background in my family. I can't stand when the grouting along the tiles is starting to mold or caulking is coming away from tiles, sinks, showers, etc. I usually look for traces of left over hair from previous guests in showers, toilets and sinks but this place was spic and span! I was ever so grateful for the care and time that was taken into caring for these rooms/ guesthouse and the price was decent too. The country pub is literally across the street. They served dinner until 9:30pm and the food was gorgeous! In the morning the breakfast was cooked to order and had some of the best scrambled eggs I've had in a long time! I can't say enough nice things about this place!

Needed to stay on the outskirts of Witney for a wedding , found on internet and from caling through to departure, nothing was too much trouble. Nice to have the personal service that you don't get in chains. Our rooms were in the recently built extension and although on the main road we didn't hear any traffic. Only metres from the Windrush pub where we had a lovely lunch.
A lovely choice for breakfast which was freshly cooked. We would definitely stay here again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone.

After an 8 hour flight and an hour bus ride from London, plus another bus ride to Witney, The Laurels was absolutely an oasis in the desert of my exhaustion! My hosts were absolutely lovely. I stayed there for five nights and loved each and every night. The room was comfortable, exceptionally clean, and perfect for me. The full English breakfasts were wonderful, and my hosts were kind, considerate, and friendly.

I would recommend this little gem to anyone who needs a base to explore southwest England or who wants to get away from it all and relax in the quaint village of Witney.

  • Liked — The hosts were wonderful! And the room...wow. SO clean and comfortable!
  • Disliked — Had a bit of trouble with keeping the water one temperature in the shower.
