A really charming hotel, loads of character and an Olde style. Excellent location, very central. Very comfortable room, clean and fresh and very spacious, perfect for a weekend break.
Breakfast was wonderful, all freshly prepared to taste. I can recommend Eggs Benedict.
The hotel staff were very helpful and polite.
On the downside the bar needs a shot of atmosphere, give that a miss, there's plenty of choice elsewhere in Banbury.
The first thing that struck me was the imposing building and spacious car-park, with circa 12 spaces under cover. Check-in was very pleasant with a really friendly lady on reception - Joanna. My room exceeded my expectations - for a single room, I had a nice, comfy double bed, plenty of hanging space, the digital safe in the room was a real plus point and a well proportioned and thought out bathroom. The public areas were of a good size and well upholstered, clean and welcoming
I ate at the hotel on both days of my stay - the food was excellent and the service attentive. I was surprised to see how many guests ate in the hotel in the evenings - the restaurant was on average 2/3rd to 3/4 full.
All in all, a very pleasant stay and one which I'm sure to repeat when I'm next in Banbury, later this year.

A beautifully decorated house. The owners warmly greeted us upon arrival. The room was wonderful: quiet but well appointed with plenty of tea/coffee (i.e more than 2 cups which is rare these days), lots of towels and some aloe vera products. The bed was extremely comfortable. We don't usually eat in the hotel but did here and were very pleasantly surprised. The food was very good, portions were satisfying and the price was very reasonable indeed. The wine selection was notable. Breakfast was good and I liked that you could serve yourself coffee if needed. As we departed the staff asked : "Oh are you leaving us?" You felt that you were made welcome in their home.

This hotel provided a great break to the Cotswolds within our vacation to England. Hotel was beautifully decorated, comfortable and with staff who were the most attentive experienced anywhere in Europe. Ample parking available to guests.

Beautiful hotel, stayed in an annexe room that had obviously been refurbished recently (gorgeous).
The owners are very welcoming and they even cooked us breakfast later than the time they normally stop serving as we were going to the Cropredy festival and weren't leaving till later.
Highly recommended :-)
Hotel room was extremely hot even with fan and window open. Bar staff (the girls) were extremely helpful on all occasions. I think the manager needs to be more hands on. When we left we had to leave our room cards on bar as no one around to even ask us if we had enjoyed our stay and our bill not ready when ask at breakfast and they had to ask us what we had. Breakfast was a little cold and only offered one cup of coffee. There are more positives than negatives but for the price charged would expect more attention to detail.
I booked the hotel back in April together with tickets for the MotoGP at Silverstone. After driving the best part of
3 hours we arrived at the hotel, only to find they had no reference of the booking. I had printed off my copy of conformation and reference number e-mailed to me by expedia, this didn't help in anyway.
We were then told that we would be lucky to find any rooms for miles because of the event at Silverstone. (this was the reason I booked in April) The hotel owner told us he was having trouble with expedia bookings around that time so it must have been lost then. With that we left the hotel drove for another 3 hours home again, only to have to do it all again the next day. As this was a birthday gift for my wife I was very disappointed.
So would I use expedia again NO would I use the same hotel NO
