“Great service”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Went there on an Amazon Local deal. We were in the refurbished block and it was immaculate. The service was excellent, very friendly. The evening meal was very good with some homemade bread on the side. This was excellent. The breakfast was a bit disappointing as I thought the toast would be good fresh homemade which we had at evening meal but it was just medium sliced yucky supermarket sliced stuff. The full English was included but everything else incurred a supplement of almost £3. Overall would have no qualms in recommending the 5 Arrows.

Stayed May 2014, travelled as a couple

The hotel is owned and run by the National Trust, as part of the Waddesdon Estate. The hotel is on the main road, and is more of a large house, by layout, rather than a hotel. We were there on a weekend, but I think the traffic noise could be significant in the week, if you were in a room at the front, as we were. The reception / bar / lounge area is small with only 4/ 5 tables, although on a warm summer's day there are some gardens you could sit in.
We stayed on Easter Saturday evening, as we were visiting the adjoining Waddesdon Manor the following day. We booked a superior room bed, dinner and breakfast package.

The room, in the main building, was quite dark, deep maroon coloured walls, and a small window and quite small by modern standards, but had all the facilities one would expect. Controlling the room temperature wasn't easy, as it tended to be too hot or cold, as it had a radiator, rather than air conditioning.

The dinner package was excellent value, just £25 extra for the 2 of us, which gave a full a la carte menu choice of 3 courses meals. The food was high quality, and we both had the steak for the main course which was excellent.
Breakfast was a combination of limited cold buffet (choice of fresh fruit could have been better) and a choice of served hot dishes.

Overall, a good place to spend a night if you're visiting this area, with some excellent attractions, Waddesdon Manor, Dunstable Downs, Bicester all close by.

Room Tip: Room at the back to avoid traffic noise

This is a follow up review 1 year on from our fantastic wedding at the Five Arrows last year. I wanted to have our first anniversary at the Five Arrows and managed to book the honeymoon Suite for one night. All the staff were excellent in accommodating our needs, from late minute booking of specific flowers to cooking my wife her 'special Vegggie' wedding day meal. The staff were most attentive and spoilt us; once again the Five Arrows made it a day to remember. I would rstrongly recommend this for both wedding, an overnight stay and, in particular, the excellent restaurant.

Lovely hotel in an idyllic location, first impressions when you pull in are fantastic with a great welcoming reception from staff on checking in. Lovely room but a little smaller than we would have liked, but everything that we needed so no real complaints. Spotlessly clean with a large shower in the ensuite. Dinner was amazing and it was a difficult decision to make on what we should choose from the menu. All cooked to perfection and served by our attentive hosts. Breakfast again was a choice of Continental or full English which really set you up for the whole day. We took advantage of the good weather and visited Waddesdon Manor Gardens with a complimentary pass from the hotel on our first day.

The staff were truly amazing, warm friendly and couldn't fault any of them. A real credit to the Hotel.

Car parking is no problem even when there is a wedding in the hotel as we found out. Would we come back again? That's a definite YES.

Very enjoyable stay at the 5 Arrows, every bit as good as the web site pictures and description. Super evening meal, ( not quite so good cooked breakfast ) but we passed on the £2000 bottle of 1986 Baron Rothschild wine !!

Had a BB and dinner package for a mid week night. All round it was an excellent choice and very good value for money. Had a very nice newly refurbished room in the stable block which was modern, roomy and had a lovely bathroom. Lovely garden for drinks on the terrace but no real bar area or facilities for seating inside except for dining. Very nice dinner from a good menu and a decent wine list.
Very nice breakfast although no real fresh fruit. Didn't like the cereals in Kilner jars but that is being a bit picky.
Very friendly staff and plenty around at all times, good service. Easy car parking and free Wi-Fi. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for refurbished room in stable block.
