Positive Reviews


Close to everything.

Guests loved being able to walk to nearby Blenheim Palace and being able to leave their car on-site while traveling by bus to local attractions including nearby Oxford.


Nothing is too much trouble for staff.

Guests complimented the staff highly, saying they were detail-oriented and responsive.

Guests found the hotel generally very quiet and most reported getting a good night’s sleep. The facility is also quieter in the back – and staff will accommodate guests who ask to be moved if necessary.
