For what we paid , I feel this hotel serious needs to review many areas It's bedrooms are dirty , grubby and so in need of refurbishment. The bar looks okay , but didn't use as was at a wedding reception elsewhere. The full English & buffet breakfast was a half hearted effort to serve something. Seriously hotels should get... More

My wife and I plus a friend stayed for two nights occupying two rooms (rooms 23 and 24). We chose the hotel because other guests at a family wedding were to stay there. But that was a big mistake. How we wished we'd chosen the Travelodge Thame instead. Far from having 'old world charm and hospitality', the rooms were smelly,... More

Dear GrahameWright, Thank yuo very much for your review. Although I appreciate your comments I do not agree that they are representing all of the Spread Eagle Hotel. Yes we have 4 old style rooms left to be refurbished but you should have seen the others so that you would not have such bad perception about us. Hopefully we can... More

We booked four nights in a superior room which proved to be grubby and shabby. The pillows were horribly stained so we told reception and asked for clean ones.The receptionist forgot but brought some up later which were just as bad. We slept with towels on over our pillows! Next day we went to check that we had been given... More

The Spread Eagle appears to be an old coaching inn epitomised by narrow staircases and sloping floors. The bedroom decor is very dated and could really benefit from a total refurbishment that said the rooms are clean and comfortable. The downstairs restaurant and function rooms have been modernised and are welcoming. Staff are extremely friendly and customer service is great.... More

Having read numerous bad reviews and been with a group of people who also stayed here for a family wedding, I was surprised that our room (no 10) was clean and comfortable.

I'm disappointed to be writing a poor review for the first time.

I booked this through a travel zoo deal for my mum and it was a reasonable rate and included an evening meal and breakfast. On arriving the receptionist was welcoming and said we had a good room... which possibly built up expectations as room 23 was anything but good. It was dreadful and I think it's the worst hotel room... More
