5/5 Excellent

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
A lovely place to stay.
A perfect location for meeting up with family. Newly refurbished rooms were very pleasant to stay in. Food was delicious. A small carpark but we fitted in. A busy village with Blenheim palace so nearby but we visited in late March so all was good for us. Very friendly welcome and great to be able to use Tesco vouchers towards the cost of the rooms.
