My wife brought me here for a weekend break and we where of to a good start as we were greeted well at reception. But it went down hill from there. Most staff were very pleasant but the cream tea, lunch and dinner were all a let down. The ham and cheese sandwich was no better than a shop bought...

This is a very stunning hotel with beautiful surroundings. The grounds are well kept with a lovely garden. Walk around the grounds to see the river and boat, it really is pleasant. Inside the hotel is a lovely lounge for relaxing with a nice long cold drink. The hotel has a bar, swimming pool, sauna and gym. The restaurant is...

We stayed here for 1 night on a special package that included a two course evening meal and a glass of prosecco each plus a bottle of wine. Our room was lovely, on the ground floor with a little patio and table and chairs overlooking the garden. Everything was clean and in good condition and the bed large and comfy....

Why we chose this hotel? We had intended to visit Oxford for some time and when this hotel was brought to our attention in an email from The Telegraph we thought it looked good and so we made a booking. First Impressions: Very good, there is a shortish drive through trees and the hotel looked inviting. Reception: Greeted with a...

Really enjoyed our stay here back in November. We were in an old part of the building but the décor was very modern. Nice views towards the Thames. Breakfast was great and in a really nice setting. The grounds were lovely and we really enjoyed sitting by the river. My only complaint was the front of house guy in the...

Dear Dodderz, Thank you for your feedback following your stay with us last year.

We were a party of 6 joining other family members for my elderly parents 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration. The rooms were all lovely and as requested my parents were given an 'accessible' room with a large bathroom and walk in shower. A lovely added touch was the congratulatory card and chocolates left in their room. Every member of staff from...

Impressive stone buildings suggest a country manor but this is a bustling hotel. Popular wedding venue and can be busy. Well-appointed rooms. The bed was comfortable. Appreciated the iron and ironing board. There are plenty of power sockets so if, like me, you travel with lots of chargers for phone, camera, laptop etc, you can have them all working at...

Dear Sennockian55, Thank you for taking an opportunity to review us, and I am sorry to read that certain aspects of your stay caused you disappointment. We don't often get negative comments about our College rooms, but as the patio door has a traditional key, these are kept at Reception. I am sorry too, that as we had a Wedding...

First impressions of the hotel were fabulous. The exterior of the building looks beautiful, and so does the entrance / bar / reception area. We were therefore quite disappointed when we opened the door to our bedroom, to find a very characterless, tired looking space which you would expect to find at a Premier Inn. Not Premier Inn prices here...

Visited here for one night. The rooms were lovely and spacious with comfortable beds. The only downside to the room was that it didn't have an iron. The bathroom had recently been refurbished and had a powerful shower. We used the spa, the facilities are good but I have to say I've been in better, bigger and cleaners facilities. The...

Great location, spotlessly clean, pleasant room and charming and efficient staff – so what more could you want? A better main course for dinner!
