A single bed, a small heater, fresh quality linen & towels. A separate bathroom. Not too much noise but enough to unsettle you. Breakfast is an option. Check out the village B&Bs. or go abroad. Handy though for town centre...

Can't make up my mind about this hotel. Welcome was fine, room was comfortable, breakfast was ok (but only OK), what let it down was the service at dinner. We ordered a 8, starter came at 9, main course at 9:15 ........did I say any more. Maybe just before Christmas is not the time to visit this hotel.

Stayed for one night. Room clean. Bed comfortable. In morning went for shower. It was over the bath but the tap to switch over to shower just swivelled round and round. No bath mat. Sink blocked up. No where to hang towels in bathroom. Not the best hotel for a special anniversary.

I've stayed in so many hotels for work and this has been my favourite. The rooms cosy and comfortable and the staff are so friendly. Decided to have dinner in the restaurant and the pork belly is amazing. As only of waitresses called it a 'mammy dinner' it really felt homely and made a bad day a little better. The...

Stayed for birthday weekend to go to Bicester village, fab location and free parking. There is also free parking at Bicester but can get a taxi for £5. The hotel also gives you a VIP pass for Bicester which gets you 10% off in stores - which is fab!! The hotel staff especially the Irish lady in restaurant were lovely,...

This hotel in my opinion is really excellent. The location is perfect in the centre of town. As a family with young children, we found the staff to be extremely helpful and no request was too much. We stayed there for two nights last week and thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The rooms were super comfortable. The food was beautiful and...

Last Sunday afternoon, I ate in King Arm's with my grandmother and my mother. We were on a weekend break and on Sunday my grandmother was looking forward to a hot roast lunch (typical Irish woman). We were out for a stroll and stumbled upon this hotel. What a gem! It was homely from the minute we entered and the...
