The hotel is excellent. Food was very tasty and cooked to perfection by the chef(s) The rooms are well maintained and comfortable, and the price per night, makes this hotel affordable for all. Many thanks, and see you again soon

The hotel looks nice from the outside and is nice hotel on the inside as well. It is an old hotel, therefore, it does not have lift or gym or beauty salon but that is fine as it is more countryside, authentic hotel. The room I stayed in was superior room and it was nice, clean with tea and coffee...

The staff was outstanding. The food was good. The rooms were clean and cozy. This is all we needed for my students and I to live the typical English experience. I would recommend this to everyone who wants an authentic experience. However, if you are looking for a brand new hypster type of place, this isn't it.

My sisters and I have been using this hotel for many years now when visiting Bicester Village as it is one of the few hotels providing a room with 3 single beds. At first it was good with an adequate room (although would have preferred duvets rather than old fashioned blankets & sheets) & reasonable restaurant but over the years...

Thank you for your review. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay. To be clear, we do not have blankets in any of our rooms, all of our rooms have duvets! The hotel was quiet as you visited in January which is the quietest month in the year and as a result we made a decision to...

30 of us (all ages) went to the Holt on Saturday 28th to celebrate a family birthday and had a fantastic time. From Emma (the sales manager) organising the weekend, to George and staff who couldn't do enough to ensure we had a good time and the chef who produced a lovely 3 course meal in the evening. Yes some...

Good sized room. Lovely courtyard. Nice old building. Slightly dated, but this adds character. Clean. Breakfast as expected. Polite staff and particularly helpful receptionist in the evening. Good parking outside.
