I stayed here during the week for one night on business. I was charged £153 for the room only (Room 226). The hotel receptionists were very pleasant. I was on the top floor and used the stairs to get to my room although there is a small lift provided. The stair carpet was rather worn and tired looking compared to the reception area which is lovely bright and modern looking. My room had a double bed and a single bed. On the negative side, the decor was a little tired, the sink in the bathroom had a large crack in it, the sink had no mixer tap and the hot tap was too hot to use, the shower was pathetic and I certainly didn't feel invigorated after it. The tiles had signs of mildew around the bath area, the light above the tea and coffee making facilities did not work, the wallpaper next to the bin was stained and dirty looking. On the positive side, the towels were clean, soft and very large, the bed was comfortable as were the pillows. The windows only open a crack and it was very hot all night which I found quite uncomfortable although a fan is provided. There are two tiny cups provided for tea and coffee - why not mugs? I did not eat in the dining room, but chose room service. There is a very limited menu which is fine, and I ordered the burger and chips. It was served fairly quickly to the room and it was delicious. However when I ordered I asked if it came with cheese and I was told it did, but it did not. Also, there was no salt pepper or vinegar which meant I could not enjoy the chips as much as I could have done with a little seasoning.
Check out was efficient with no problems. If I had paid £80 per night which is my normal budget for a hotel in Witney then I would have said value for money. However I felt it was too expensive and I don't think I will start to make this my weekly stop-over. The gardens did look nice however there was a marquee erected in most of the area which I could see from my room. Wifi was excellent! less
