We called in here for refreshments during a long journey. I always judge the standard of a place by whether or not there is food stained seating and carpeting; sticky tables (yuck!) and toilets your only too pleased to get out of. I think, if they can't keep the basics clean then what are the kitchens like! The Holt Hotel...

Dear Jane Thank you for your review. We are glad you found our staff friendly and the hotel spotlessly clean. We recognise that some parts of the hotel are a little dated - whilst we want to keep the charm and character of the building, we are undertaking refurbishment work in the next couple of months of our bar and...

Spent our honeymoon here so went back to celebrate our Golden Wedding Anniversary with family and friends and had a brilliant time. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, especially Emma, food was excellent and accommodation five star. Would recommend this hotel for any special occasions for the personal touch

The walls are super thin! Stayed in Room 69 in late February. At 3am we could hear the entire conversation of the people in the room above and the floorboards loudly creaking. Then from 8am there was drilling and hammering into our walls. Such impact that things fell on the bathroom sink. The website said renovations occurred in Jan. It's...

I stay away a lot on business and encounter many differing levels of food, room, service, etc. I admit I personally have few expectations other than polite and helpful staff, especially when you first arrive somewhere new to you. This hotel is marked down a lot by many and I can't see why. Front desk was open and humorous and...

The hotel looks nice from the outside and is nice hotel on the inside as well. It is an old hotel, therefore, it does not have lift or gym or beauty salon but that is fine as it is more countryside, authentic hotel. The room I stayed in was superior room and it was nice, clean with tea and coffee...

The staff was outstanding. The food was good. The rooms were clean and cozy. This is all we needed for my students and I to live the typical English experience. I would recommend this to everyone who wants an authentic experience. However, if you are looking for a brand new hypster type of place, this isn't it.

My sisters and I have been using this hotel for many years now when visiting Bicester Village as it is one of the few hotels providing a room with 3 single beds. At first it was good with an adequate room (although would have preferred duvets rather than old fashioned blankets & sheets) & reasonable restaurant but over the years...
