This was the perfect overnight stop - excellent service and very clean, comfortable room. No noise disturbance at night, lots of space and a very atmospheric bar. I didn't eat there so cannot comment on the food, but would imagine it matches the other high standards.
Everything was as we had hoped. The only criticism is in respect of how long we had to wait to be served at the bar but it was extremely busy and the staff were very stretched to look after everybody promptly.
We had a nice large room. The hotel had a nice restaurant and a bar for more casual dining and drinking. The grounds were lovely, but it was too cool and rainy to enjoy them. You could walk to town or take a local bus. The breakfast room and the breakfast were very good.
"Relaxing hotel with good facilities and good food"
Lovely hotel located just outside Oxford. We arrived late in the evening but were made very welcome. Excellent welcome for our dog who was treated as part of the family. Large, extensive gardens (over 60 acres) with plenty of things to do and look at. There's a river - several of the rooms are river rooms with their own patios to sit out. If you want a gym, garden games, croquet, chess, badminton, tennis, cycling - all available. Spa treatments are also available. Staff are amenable. We had breakfast and an evening meal and both were enjoyable and relaxing. One minor negative point to avoid - if you are not quite so mobile you need to make staff aware in advance as some areas involve quite a bit of a walk and steps.
We would definitely recommend this hotel.
The room was clean and functional. The staff very welcoming and helpful. Avoid the smoking rooms. Boutique hotel it ain't but for the price it is fine. My room had a double bed and single bed. I needed the extra duvet off the single bed as it was a bit chilly. As it was late spring I would not want the heating on.
Modern low-rise hotel located at the Welcome Break on the Oxford ring road, seven miles from the centre of Oxford and four …More
we stayed four nights which is apparently unusual as guests mainly stay 1-2nights. Central location in beautiful and unusual building, variety of rooms, with v comfortable firm mattress and lovely pillows, good wet room. The car parking is stupidly expensive considering the nightly rates for rooms. However, the parking on site was really worth while as Oxford is anti-car and we knew the car was safe.
we did not eat in as there is no need to spend £13 for continental breakfast etc., and we ate very well locally; Ask, Prezzo, Pizza Express and many more 'fine dining' are within a short walk
There is so much to see in and around Oxford it is difficult to know where to start but it was good to know our room was nearby to rest and then set off exploring again
After reading a few reviews we were not sure what to expect however we couldn't be more pleasantly surprised. A lovely warm welcome from staff who couldn't do enough for you. Our room was fantastic with furnishings in keeping with the style of the hotel (maybe not to some people's taste if you are looking for a contemporary room). The food in the bar on the evening was superb and very reasonably priced. Breakfast was most satisfactory too. OK so there were some little bits here and there that fussy visitors could point out but nothing that could spoil your stay. Worth the price in our opinion.
