Fabulous hotel!

We had a fantastic 2 night stay at the hotel. It is in a beautiful setting, just a minute from the Thames and a 15 minute walk into Oxford. Our room was ready when we arrived so we were able to check in early, which was brilliant. All employees we encountered were efficient, helpful & friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. The pool is clean & well kept. Would definitely stay here again.
