    Very old hotel

    This hotel is divided into old and new. In order to get to my room we (the receptionist and I ) had to "haul my suitcase" up a flight of steps, outside into the carpark, down a flight of steps and then into the building where my room was located. My suitcase was very heavy!! The receptionist was a small young woman!! I am glad it was not raining!!

    Lovely, charaterful hotel

    (1) the hotel did not have a local map of Banbury, not the end of the world but it would have been useful (2) it took a long time to locate bar staff at around 2pm (10 - 15 minutes) 3 clients were waiting. I had to go to reception in the end. Again not terrible but I had just arrived, it was hot and I wanted a cold drink

    the staff were very helpful, breakfast was very good. We woud have used the resturant in the evening if more people were there, but went out because we like people around to create a better feeling.

    No it was fine.

    location

    We were very disappointed with the hotel. We all felt it needs some serious updating and tlc. The staff could also benefit from further training. Mr and Mrs Reed

    Noise, bar area, staff incompetence.

  • Single
    7.8

    The beds are very comfortable and breakfast is excellent. Location can't be faulted and the staff are friendly.

    Had to be moved to the rear of the hotel as the front is quite noisy due to being on a busy road. The restaurant is also quite expensive, but there are lots of options within a 5minute walk. Also the WiFi is over-priced and should be free given cost of room.

  • Family with children
    8.8

    Receptionist lovely and very helpful throughout, room good, clean maybe in need of a little updating but great for the money. I will return in future.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Great location in centre of Banbury, historic building.

    Bathrooms a little tired, breakfast at £15 far too expensive - plenty of more reasonably priced cafes near by.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Quite homely hotel in center of Banbury.

    Bath/shower needs refurbished. Quality of breakfast needs to be raised.
