Nothing personable from the venue. Prewarned via email (which was acknowledged by an email) it was a anniversary visit but nothing mentioned when checking in or during the stay (sad as "lesser" hotels have made a effort over the years and the restaurants we visited in town made reference). At check in, we were asked to pay £145 for the room but i had to remind them that i had repaid considerably more than that in February ! £1.93 service charge added to bill for waiting at the bar for 5 mins for two drinks, not great when the drinks were £18 ! Room very small and thankful for the fan provided else would have been geniunely un"bear"able with the heat. Lovely town, Blenheim beautiful but a real shame not the "special" venue we hoped for.

Booked this hotel for a quiet few days away and as a base to visit Oxford and Bicester Village. The room was clean and comfortable but it could have done with a few minor DIY jobs to bring it up to standard for the class of hotel. Now for a few negative views. Given the price paid for the room, I did not expect to have to pay for onsite parking, £5 a day would have been realistic but being asked to £10 is taking the biscuit. The same sort of thing applies for the breakfast that was paid for within the room rate. Out of the list of breakfast items in which you could have had salmon included, it incurred an additional surcharge once again, given the price paid for the room I would have expected a variety of breakfast choices to have included the salmon. If it said caviar or champagne and orange juice for breakfast then that would be a different matter. I know we are all recovering from the pandemic, but it seems the management is trying to squeeze every £ out of its visitors. I want say anything about any other food or drinks to be had at the hotel as other reviewers cover the issue quite well.
