“A great stay at Hanwell House with Jan and Nigel!”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

I've just spent a week at Hanwell House and I enjoyed the experience immensely. Jan provides all the facilities of a major hotel but with the welcome and charm of a first-class B&B.

It really is like being at home and that you are 'part of the family'. The quiet room was great (with en-suite shower and toilet), comfortable bed, plenty of space for your clothes and luggage and scrummy home-made cookies to go with your tea or coffee..

There's an abundance of choice for breakfast with local produce (great sausages) and excellent conversation around the breakfast table with other residents! Jan is a most attentive hostess and keen to make sure that all whims are catered for.

Easy parking and good access to Warwick where I was working for a week.

Above-all-else Jan and her husband Nigel make you feel like a friend not a guest. What more could you ask for in overnight accommodation?

Room Tip: Just call Jan on the phone and she'll talk you through what's available. I stayed in Croperd...

I ahve stayed here several times and it's always the same, great hosts, great breakfast and very warm and comfortable room, what more could you possibly want in B&B!!!!

Jan & Nigel are great hosts and it's no surprise that they get "regular" guests.

Room Tip: Take any room you can, you'll be lucky to get one as they are often booked up !!!!

Relaxing and welcoming b & b with lovely host and excellent breakfast. Quiet yet convenient location. To be recommended! Very clean bedroom with good amenities and off street parking. If ever in Banbury this ticks all the boxes.

UK B&Bs have come on leaps and bounds recently but Hanwell House easily stands out. Our room was charming, with lovely furnishings, plus nice products in the smart bathroom. The cooked breakfast would have fitted us for a day's walking in the beautiful countryside, rather than the gentle exploration of the historic town of Banbury for which it is so well located. Our host and hostess were incredibly warm and welcoming, with lots of good information to enhance our brief stay. As their 1000th guest we were entertained with a celebratory bottle of champagne - what more could one want?

This was a fantastic stay. Jan was lovely really friendly and I enjoyed the personal touches in the rooms with the homemade biscuits. It really was a home from home experience and would recommend it to friends/family if they needed to stay in the area.

We found a very nice B & B with airy and bright rooms that were very well equipped. The Breakfrast was rich and delicious. We had the best omelettes of our holiday in England there. On tonp of that our hosts were very nice people. It was fun to talk to you and you were very helpful. If we are back in your area, we will surely stay again with you.

I have been staying at Hanwell House coming up to 5 years. I am a regular customer, stay between 4 - 8 times per year, usually 1 or 2 nights. As you can see by the other reviews, Jan has got her act together, everything is just excellent!

Breakfast is extensive indeed, taking all your personal wishes into account. And it is fresh (unlike many hotels...).

Jan is very hospitable and will do what it takes and more. Very clean rooms, showers, bedrooms, toilets, dining room. No, you cannot go wrong here!
