The staff were all so friendly and helpful and the little touches in the room made the stay even more special. Free drinks and snacks and even fresh milk in the fridge for your...

The main issue however is that the hotel just lacks...

This hotel is set in pleasant grounds and not too far from Oxford if you have a car. I used it for a one night stay while in the area with work. The grounds are attractive and the hotel is nicely decorated but it seemed a bit lifeless to me. Although staff were helpful and friendly they were often stood...

I celebrated my birthday with 5 friends at the river room restaurant and had a perfect evening. The food was amazing, the service was faultless and the atmosphere was all I had hoped for. Claudio, the Masterchef chef, came to ask if everything was okay. Lovely guy!
