Booked one of the 17 main house bedrooms through Booking.com. On arrival our booking did not exist in their system apparently and the 17 bedrooms were all booked. Duty manager found us the "last room" in the Crowne Plaza for the same price - one I would never have booked at £170 for a tiny, all be it clean and modern box room. But at 4.30pm on a Saturday with the Blenheim horse trials on, I had little option.
There was a wedding on so one of the dining rooms was out of use, couldn't eat in the hotel restaurant until 9.30pm so had bar snacks instead. Bar badly run, took a manger to come down and sort things out; didn't appear that anyone behind the bar had ever done bar work before on a Saturday night with the hotels full....
Breakfast grossly over priced at £20 a head for a very average buffet.
Finally find the room charge deducted AGAIN over 2 weeks after checking out!
So what should have been a nice room in a stately home followed by a good meal in a restaurant, turned into a night in a tiny modern box, bar snacks, and then double charged for the pleasure of it all!!!
Wouldn't touch again with a bargepole.
