Nice old coaching inn in great picturesque Oxfordshire town is not much more than nice. It's in a great location but the rooms struggle with a lack of light, lack of electrical sockets and the bathroom needs a really good clean (our shower curtain was mouldy as was the grout between the tiles). The hotel itself has plenty of character and loads of parking but is in such a good location that the road outside contributes far too much to the in room ambiance with the windows and the secondary glazing shut. This means the rooms itself heats to an unacceptable level which means you have to choose from excessive noise or excessive heat. Of course this could be due to us staying in August but I suspect the noise is not month specific.
That's said a more than functional spot to spend a night in a lovely old English town just try not to get a room that fronts onto Hart Street.
