Had never been to the Cotswolds' and it did not disappoint! Beautiful peaceful surroundings. Staff were fantastic, friendly, helpful and efficient as well. We felt like royalty :-). Rented car and drove about area - great location for an activity like this. Only issue was that we thought hotel was close to Oxford when we booked it (map must have been compressed). It turned out to be an expensive cab ride there from the train station (about 45 pounds). So we didn't get to see as much of Oxford as we had planned, but it turned out fine. In fact we decided to stay an extra day in the area. Our room opened to a small patio on the river (small brook on the property). Lovely. Great English breakfast, and nice restaurant as well. Would recommend highly to anyone looking for this type of experience.
Set in great grounds and countryside, has a large country house feel. Staff are very good and friendly food was excellent, shame the bathroom in our room in the main building was under the stairs as this did get noisey , I would go again but make sure we're away from the staircase .
The Old Court Hotel is a very charming and pleasant place to stay. I was greeted in very friendly fashion, late on a Sunday night, by the owner.
The room was small but spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate. The bed very comfortable. A stay with two people might have been a little cramped. The ensuite bathroom was very small and only just suitable for purpose. Although it was functional, it could do with modernisation. The biggest problem for me, though, was the lack of a mirror above the sink which made shaving a bit awkward.
Breakfasts were good and served quickly. I didn't eat in the restaurant in the evenings but this was for other reasons, nothing to do with the hotel. The restaurant and bar area was very stylish and comfortable.
The only real logistical problem is the lack of parking, but to be honest there's very little that the hotel can do about this. There is some on street parking available.
Very good value for money and I would be very happy to stay there again.
I have stayed in many Hotels and always check the review of them before booking. This hotel was just like the photos, it was clean and comfortable. The location is a five minute walk to the rail station and in 10mins you are in Oxford. The Staff really make you feel welcome and they cannot do enough for you.
Witney is a small market town on the River Windrush in Oxfordshire. The traditional local industry was making woolen blankets, and examples of this craft can be found in the Witney and District Museum. Children are entertained at the Cogges Manor Farm Museum--a working Victorian farm--and the town makes a good base for exploring the picturesque Cotswold Hills.
