Stayed for Air Show
I was disappointed with this hotel. It did not live up to what it said in the information. It is over priced and the stairs to the rooms give a very bad impression. There is a horrible musty smell and the carpet had seen better days. The room itself was nice and clean and well appointed. Just getting there was enough to put you off. The staff were really nice and helpful especially the lady that did breakfast. It was also quite difficult to find. It is actually Grove but is advertised as Wantage.
