Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Hotel's Favourite
What an excellent stay this week. We stayed at the hotel as we were going to see Pete Tong at Blenheim Palace on Saturday. However, we stayed Friday and Saturday nights. I can’t say enough to praise this hotel. A warm welcome on arrival by Nisha who was extremely helpful with helping us with our travel plans. All the staff were very helpful, kind and professional. The manager, Gavin greeted us for breakfast on Saturday morning. What a great guy. Really really helpful. I can’t give a loud enough shout out for him. Room was excellent, food was great and location perfect. A really nice and well run hotel. Again, all the team can’t do enough for you. Thank you Gavin to you and your team for what was a really great weekend. A really relaxed environment. We will be visiting again very soon.

We had a 2 day conference at this hotel. The staff could not have been more helpful. The food was amazing, the rooms were very modern and spotless. I would highly recommend to anyone for either business or pleasure. Rachael who runs the show could not be more helpful from the enquiry to when we checked out. Charlotte & Hannah who work in the Academy were amazing supporting us through the 2 day conference and I cant forget Jackie and Maddie who supplied an A star breakfast.

We booked a coach trip through our local travel company, to Oxford for the weekend, staying at the Holiday Inn. We were greeted by helpful and friendly staff who excelled at their jobs, both on Reception and in the restaurant. They couldn’t do enough for us 🥰. So thank you to all for making our stay so enjoyable. Keep up the good work.

Stayed for a couple of nights with a young child over the Easter weekend , The Easter egg in the room was a great touch. It’s clear the staff here are focused on going above and beyond for guests. The Breakfast was as good as I’ve ever had. Room was very clean and everything in good working order. Highly recommend this hotel.

Excellent service - the staff rally do go above and beyond to make this a personal experience. I’ve stayed a few times on business and they remember me and that really matters. There are a number that have worked there a long time - that speaks volumes for how well they are treated and their loyalty too. Thank you team!

Staff have been very attentive to individual requirements and have also dealt with issues that were not necessarily the hotels' concerns. (Corporate booking systems) Daniel Lauren and Neesha have specially been a great help in rectifying issues and ensuring my stay was a good as it could be. I spend a great deal of time in hotels and away from home but staff here make you feel looked after.
