The hotel is full of olde worldy charm. The location could not be better for visiting Blenheim Palace and getting into Oxford is easy too. Room was a good size but pillows were not of the highest standard and we were disappointed that there was not a choice of pillows either.
Breakfast was good and service was fine. However when we decided to have lunch in the bar one day when the weather was wet we found the cost of sandwiches and drinks rather expensive (£4.50 for a small pot of tea); the waitress got our order all wrong and even forgot to bring part of it.
Still all in all a good hotel for a short stay.
