Well placed for lots of things
Posted Jan 3, 2017
Chose the hotel because we couldn't get anything in Witney over Christmas. And very pleasantly surprised we were. Only 8 miles from Witney, we could reach the family within 15-20 minutes - but the hotel is also ideally located for getting into Oxford, for the A34 and for getting to the M40 and Blenheim (admittedly we didn't experience road conditions during a typical Oxford rush hour). The amenities and flexibility of meal and bar timings attracted us, and didn't disappoint - though the bar area was functional and wanted for character. The breakfast is very good. The hotel is in the final throes of modernization but that didn't affect our stay. The bedroom was very clean and comfortable and the towels were excellent - which made up for the bathroom, which was modernized but a little cramped. Stepping up into the bath could be tricky for the elderly, especially the fixed bath screen is at the end where the non-slip base to the bath is located. At the price we paid, the whole stay was excellent value.
