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.

Penwortham, United Kingdom1417 contributions301 helpful votes
I booked the room as I was meeting my son and we were heading off to Blenheim Palace for the Christmas Fayre. The room I had was a single, room 5, it was really comfortable and plenty big enough for me. The bed was good, and the room had a TV and tea/coffee making facilities in it. The room was also nice and warm. The bathroom had a great 2 headed shower and the water pressure and temperature were all fine. There is ample car parking in the front, and a large area at the rear of the property, so no issues there. Breakfast is not included, but for £7 extra, I had a lovely breakfast to set me up before my journey home. There were fruit juices, youghts, fruit, cereal, toast Tea or coffee, and of course an English breakfast. Really good quality and worth the £7 paid. If I find myself in the area again, I know where I will be staying.

Lovely warm welcome, well appointed twin room. Full English breakfast was beautifully cooked and plenty of it, although the vegetarian option was just missing the sausage and bacon with nothing extra to compensate. Would come back again

What a wonderful experience! A ten minute walk from Banbury town centre, plenty of information made available in the room about what to do in the area. Luxurious spacious rooms with a very comfortable bed, en suite facilities which were very clean and tidy. Breakfast was a full English which will keep me going for the day. Lovely people too. Thank you.

Myself and my husband had booked this guesthouse as he had previously stayed here with a small group of friends whilst visiting Silverstone Circuit. We had booked well in advance to return in July this year as we were due to attend the Formula 1 GP. At the time of booking my husband asked if a deposit was needed and we were told no. My husband explained that he would like if possible a ground floor room as he is a permanent Wheelchair user. We were told by the owner that they had a self contained room with a separate entrance that we would be able to use . We thought this was fabulous and started to look forward to our trip. We were booked for Thursday though to the Monday morning. However a day before we were due my husband got a last minute hospital appointment so called prospect House out of courtesy to say we would be arriving Friday, we were happy to still pay for the Thursday due to the short notice only to be told there was no booking!!!! The owner said that they had been told by another guest that we were not going and did not need the room. I found this strange as yes we loosely knew the other guest but had not spoke to them in a long time so they would not know our intentions. The owners were very unapologetic and seemed to not care that they had cancelled our booking on an acquaintances say so. So here we are today at home in Northumberland instead of at the F1 and over £800 down. Please do not stay at this establishment. I have never been so upset, devastated and treated so poorly in my entire life. Obviously do not hold disabled travellers in high regards. I did try to make contact via email but I am yet to receive a response.

Wanted somewhere to stay close to the hospital, that was comfortable and peaceful. Prospect House certainly fitted the bill. More modern than the current pictures on this site show and a lovely interior and parking to the rear. Walking distance from the restaurants in town but the breakfast here is generous, good quality and very satisfying. Excellent night’s sleep and a very friendly atmosphere. The right balance of welcome and privacy. Certainly will recommend to anyone travelling in this area - an excellent find!

A lovely B&B, very responsive ahead of our trip and a warm welcome and service through our stay. Easy walk to centre of Banbury. Room was very well equipped, very comfy bed, en-suite and nicely decorated. Lovely breakfast as well. Good parking. Would highly recommend.

Stayed on 5th August, with my partner and his mother, on our way to Eastbourne. Both rooms were of high quality and beautifully clean and airy. The super king size beds were exceptionally comfortable, both made up with crisp, white bedding. The showers were powerful and easy to operate. Steve and Valerie were perfect, friendly hosts - there if you required help but not over-facing. The breakfast, served at separate tables, was delicious. We would certainly stay at Prospect House, with its generous parking and fabulous rooms again and would recommend it to anyone.

We only stayed here one night from the London airport because we had a long ride up to northern Wales and I had to learn to drive a stick shirt with my left hand! Right off the highway, cute town. Convenient parking out front for me or more advanced drivers can park in the back. Steve was very helpful driving us into town for our dinner and suggested a great Italian restaurant to eat. Very clean room, comfortable and quiet. Amazing huge breakfast!

We stayed 4 nights here and were very pleased with our choice. The room was clean, comfortable and with a good bathroom/shower. I was also surprised that it has smart TV, if that's important to you. The hosts were delightfully friendly people, and very helpful. The breakfasts were good with a decent choice of fruits as well as an excellent full English. I would certainly recommend this for a short break if you wish/need to stay locally.
