We had one of the chalet rooms which was really only suitable for a single occupancy too cramped for two people, bed was pushed against the wall so it was a case of if I needed to get out of bed I had to kick the other half out first, mattress was soft but comfortable. Tea and coffee making provided...

Stayed for one night on our way to south coast. Had one of the four-poster rooms which was very cosy and clean. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate provided as well as iron, ironing board and fan (not normally found in a B & B). Bedding was clean and crisp and the room was nice and warm. The breakfast room was...

Bed was nice, 4-poster, but the overall hotel was dark looking, corridors had lots of "stuff" including a mattress in them. Breakfast was okay but the service was almost creepy as the lady had one of those permanent smiles that showed she was more scared than I was!!

thanks for your comments the building is well over 100 years old with high cellins not like a travel lodge, The hotel lights go with the building it is well lit with 7 chandlers but it does not suit bright light. As for my waitress they cannot do right for wrong they smile you do not like they not smile...

It's amazing that someone can run a business and not give a crap about the quality of service and the state of the rooms, how their customers feel or to make anyone welcome! Our room absolutely reeked of cigarette smoke, had no smoke alarm, the bed was appalling and neither of us slept at all! The curtains hung off the...

Very nice welcome, chalet was clean and well laid out, housekeeping excellent, went out for dinner so can't comment on food, lovely building and lovely town. Would use again. The hotel is conveniently located near the lovely town of Banbury where there's a abundant array of shops, pubs, restaurants and even a market. The canal's especially lovely with the river...

The only up side was could park car outside your own door and location was good for town centre. The downside was no breakfast included in £80 a night stay room small and hot water luke warm Only saw 1 member of staff who wasn't very helpful and looked like didn't want to be there

all our rooms are sold room only you can book b/fast on line or on arrival it says it on all the booking sites and the price was the rate. You could have booked a single room for £65.00 but you booked a double for single. Yes we only had 1 person working as we cannot staff for all our...

My room was absolutely filthy, stains on toilet, dirty shower and tiles behind the sink, the bathroom floor was dirty and my single bed was uncomfortable with a blanket with stains on. There was a sign on the wall to dial 0 for reception but no phone! The kettle was on the floor. The windowsills had dirt and mould on...

I was booked here for 6 nights for business and wanted to cancel the remainder of my stay after the first 2 nights. I called to ask if I could cancel from the following day as I appreciated that it was too short notice to cancel my stay that evening. I spoke to an extremely rude man called Paul who...

I can understand you being upset and saying i was rude because you didn't get your way. We have a cancellation policy as all hotels do as we have to fill our rooms. If had said to you on your first night sorry i have sold your room for more money and a longer duration that would not be acceptable....

Recently received an email confirmation of my stay, which we had cancelled before our trip. Spoke to the owner who was very unhelpful when phoned to question this!!! Customer service was non existent. If hotel is like the owner glad I'm not staying!!!

We cannot cancel the rooms as you came through a agent that is what i told you and all i told you, if you don't cancel through your booker you will be charged its all in your confirmation.What's unhelpful about that i would say sound advice maybe not what you want to hear but you made the booking not us.
