“Just back....”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2012

... from a weekend stay. Beds beautifully cosy and comfy........ but would never go back. It is obviously run for maximum profit with minmum effort. To call it bed and breakfast is misleading, Welcome is perfunctory. No one had bothered to turn up the radiators in anticipation of our booked arrival, so rooms were cold.En suite cramped ,with v small basin, hot water takes forever. V slippery cold tiled floor, paper bath mats totally useless. Plastic dispensers of cheap soap. Almost impossible to fill kettle, and tea making "area" dangerously cramped. Kettle dripped profusely, and if you left it plugged in and then pulled out a drawer, it fell over. Very large heavy key fobs, too big for pocket or handbag, and one obviously wasn't meant to leave them with mine hostess, so a real pain to tote about. But the piece de resistance was the " breakfast" The Old Granary is more like a garden shed, very cramped, cold and draughty. We'd booked as a foursome, but there was only one single cafetiere - again, no degree of thoughtfulness. We were supplied on request with a larger one. "Continental " breakfast is basic cereals, supermarket sliced bread, something that wasn't butter, plastic wrapped cheese and yoghurt. WE advised that we wouldn't bother with breakfast the day we left, but there was absolutely no inclination to offer a reduction or even to apologise. If you must stay in Botley try the Bugle Hotel instead, it is brilliant. Good food, good value and lovely staff.

Room Tip: Don't bother - or take your own heater and breakfast.

We stayed in this B&B for two weeks in August. The staff is friendly and they do their best to make the guests feel welcome. The rooms are not big, but clean, and they overlook a lovely garden, full of colorful flowers in bloom.
There is a granary in the garden facing the rooms for a self-service breakfast.
It is five minutes' walk from the nearest shops, restaurants and takeaways in Botley.

Stay away from this place! - wosrt breakfast ever - when there are no ' holidaymakers' staying there, the accomadation is rented out to 'workers' who come back late at night from the local pub, sit on the patio which is directly outside the rooms and talk most of the night. The towels supplied are years old and as hard as a rock. The plce nedds some TLC as its very worn. All in all a nightmare!

I stayed for two days at this delightful B & B.
The room was lovely and the ammenities excellent. The service and friendliness of the propriotress and staff have ensured that I will make a return trip and recommend it to others. I hope to be back there early autumn 2011.

Room Tip: rm 3 overlooks a very pretty garden.

We made a booking for this B&B 2 weeks in advance and secured the booking with a credit card.

We arrived 3 days before our scheduled arrival to confirm our booking and discuss our check in/out times, however no-one was at home at the address. We phoned all 3 of the telephone numbers listed on the door, to no avail.

We then returned at 12:30pm on the day of our booking to leave our baggage before going to a wedding, only to find that still, no one was at home. Again, all 3 numbers went unanswered, despite phoning them all numerous times.

Eventually the neighbour notice us, standing in suits and tie with the bridegroom in the front yard, and offered to let us in with her spare key. We left our luggage and went to the wedding.

The next morning we were rudely awakened at 10:30pm by a lawnmower outside our window. Then the proprietoress banged on our window at 10:45am demanding we leave. She then banged on the door again at 11am, further demanding that we depart immediately.

The proprietoress was exceptionally rude, and the organisation of this B&B is deplorable. I would never go back.
