This was the first time for many years we have been to La Fontana. A lovely atmosphere - relaxed, not rushed but service very attentive. The food was excellent especially recommend the steak - whichever type you choose. Best meal I have had in the Wantage area!

Have stayed here twice now on business, the 2nd time being a party of 9 people and can honestly say that this is the best Italian food our party had tasted. The rooms are excellent and very nicely decorated, the one I was in had a Jacuzzi bath and flat screen tv in the bathroom, really nice to unwind after...

They serve authentic Italian food if you want to steer away from the 'english Italian' food. We've been there a few times and enjoyed it very much! We can highly recommend them for good honest food. They are a family run business and they are all involved in the business

I am guessing from the variation in reviews on the rooms, that some have been renovated whilst others remain looking sad and outdated. This wouldn't be so bad if the cleaniness of the room had been maintained over the years, however unfortunately the carpet was stained,the shower full of limescale with a broken door, the 'king sized' bed was two...

Contrary to previous reviews, I was greeted with a warm welcome from, I presume, one of the owners. I had finished my meeting ahead of time and called to see if a check-in earlier would be possible. No problem, I was met and checked in swiftly and efficiently. Rooms are well appointed and beds very comfortable, with jacuzzi bath. Would...

How refreshing to find a Family run Business. Contrary to the review by Kasey B, our complete experience was one of excellence in all respects. Our Reservation was made by telephone with Daniella, who was most helpful as were both Christina and Anna when we made further calls to arrange for our Family to join us for Dinner. We were...

Easy to find and park, a good welcome at reception. Then upstairs to the room. Oh. 1 - cobwebs; lots, really need to address that. 2 - a double bed; over large bedside cabinets should be replaced with smaller and then a king size bed. 3 - toilet seat was loose. 4 - window had been left open when the...

We stayed at La Fontana last weekend and had a very enjoyable break away. We booked directly with them and did the 'dine and stay offer'. I was so impressed with the outside area (see photos) and the beautiful dahlias. There was a lovely lounge to have a pre dinner drink and we received excellent service with our delicious meal....
