One night work stay, comfy room with everything you need facility-wise. The breakfast was really nice with attentive staff. The most pleasing thing for me was that I managed to lose my receipt and only got round to claiming the expenses 6 weeks later. I emailed the hotel and had a response 20 minutes later which I was really impressed... More

Had such an amazing weekend at Sudbury House. We booked this at the last minute. Room was cosy and staff were friendly. Farringdon is a lovely town. Great location as Cotswold and Oxford 30 minutes away.

I have stayed in this hotel before, and it did not disappoint. THe staff are friendly and efficient, and the room was clean and well-appointed. I didn't sleep that well because the meal I had eaten in the Magnolia Brasserie next door really did not agree with me, but I found the bed fairly comfortable under the circumstances. Enough space,... More

Stayed for a couple of nights on a business trip. The room and bathroom were new, the bed comfortable, the bar and restaurant perfectly up to standard.

Great room good service Breakfast excellent and safe free parking. Nit used the bar as arrived late but menus looked good for the restaurant and hopefully get opportunity to try it next time. Was trying to work out whether the apples in the room were real or wax so decided not to try one.

We were invited to a wedding here. Haven't been there for 10 years. Had a facelift since the last time I was there. Very nice setting. Very helpful staff Lovely Wedding.

It is always a pleasure to welcome back returning guests, so thank you for you staying with us again and for recommending us to your fellow delegates - much appreciated.

We visited for a wedding before during and after which the hotel staff couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. The food was good, although not exceptional, despite the posh on site restaurant. A function of scale no doubt. The beef rib was the fattiest I've ever seen. The open kitchen is a great feature although it's curiously "walk through"... More

We are a curious mix of old and new Paul, but we think that is one of our unique points, where we can offer a combination of fine dining and afternoon teas in a Grade II listed building and more contemporary and informal dining in the Magnolia Brasserie with its open kitchen and wood burning stove.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Once a fine Regency residence, the hotel is situated in the beautiful market town of Faringdon, close to Oxford, Shrivenham and Swindon.

Refurbished and redecorated completely in 2015, the Sudbury House is a great base for the Oxfordshire and Wiltshire counties. ... more   less
