Stayed recently, for a 3 night short break, during these difficult times. The location was exactly what I was looking for, being in the country, away from the crowds, with lots of lovely Oxfordshire villages to explore. If you stay at this hotel do not miss exploring the village of Wroxton which is beautiful. The weather was fantastic but unfortunately it had been very wet during the days before I arrived meaning that many footpaths in the area were too muddy for walking. I must return for a longer stay in drier weather as it’s an area that I need to explore.
Very good executive room in the newer part of the hotel. Really quiet, at the end, on the back overlooking the car park. My room was very comfortable and was warm enough with the portable heater supplied, but the bathroom was a bit cool as were some other parts of the hotel. I felt very safe here with the Covid precautions well in place throughout the hotel.
It is obviously, under normal circumstances an excellent hotel, but it did seem strange being so quiet with very few guests and not many staff. The staff were all doing a very good job considering the circumstances. They were very friendly and helpful and I was made to feel extremely welcome.
Breakfast was very good and cooked to order. The menu for dinner was a bit limited and although the choices that I had from the specials board were excellent, those from the standard bar menu were more average.
I definitely hope to return again soon to enjoy another stay at this lovely hotel in more normal circumstances. I didn’t realise this part of Oxfordshire was so beautiful and I would like to walk some of the footpaths which on this visit were too muddy.

Thank you so much for such an in depth review. As you rightly pointed out we are located in such a beautiful little village surrounded by even further beautiful villages. The Cotswolds can give you so much to do.
Covid-19 has meant we have had to strip back our offering and limit the amount of cross-contamination between stays. I have intended to do this as minimalistic as possible to not detract from our lovely property but ensure each and everyone's safety during these unprecedented times.
My staff have been wonderful during this time and its pleasing to read that whilst our usual level of service is reduced they are still ensuring that customer service is not. Thank you for sharing this with us.
We look forward to welcoming you back.
