Holiday Inn declined to publish my review on their website. Positives; the hotel and our room were clean and comfortable, the pool was nice and breakfast was good. I have two issues; the first is value for money. We had stayed in a competitors hotel the night before which was cheaper and who offered free WiFi - at the Holiday...

The best thing about this hotel is the staff - always polite and helpful, plus breakfast. We had a standard room with a view to the entrance. The one negative comment would be the smell of cigarettes in our room. When I booked the stay I did not specify whether I wanted a smoking or a non-smoking room. It did...

We stayed here for six nights in an Executive Suite, which was very quiet, comfortable and convenient. We were given a very warm welcome on arriving and loved we were not charged to park the car.

Used this hotel on a day trip to Oxford and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Room was exactly as advertised and the breakfast was upto the Holiday Inn standard. The location was good with easy access to main roads and then on into Oxford itself. Would happily stay here again.

I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this establishment. Friendly staff, clean room, friendly service at restaurant and bar. I generally keep the expectations low for places by busy traffic (big roundabout in this case), however, I quite enjoyed staying here. The terrace leading from the bar was surprisingly nice despite the fact that it is by the car...

Second visit here - first time the hotel was full of delegates for a Peppa Pig convention at Blenheim and it was chaos. No such exciting activities this time except students graduating.Breakfast is still chaos. I cannot believe any such place cannot manage a team of staff to serve breakfast to its customers. It is incompetence, pure and simple. Rooms...
