Lovely snug boutique hotel recommended to us by another hotel. Room a nice size and bathroom nice and clean. breakfast was good but tabkes were left with food on which let it down a little especially as on the morning we were the only ones there and there were plenty of staff. Still nice tho!

Although I only stayed for one night The dashwood was just what I was looking for, a traditional English pub with a contemporary make over. The room was in a separate converted building. It was large and airy with a firm but comfortable bed and modern bathroom. The pub serves a great range of ales if you like that sort...

Have eaten here on many occasions during the past 4-5 years and cannot recall any instances of sub standard food or service. Latest visit combined organised, professional staff and good food. However, when I part with £23 for a steak, I have the expectation that it will be better than merely good...

We have just returned from another fabulous stay at The Dashwood. Scott and the girls made us very welcome and looked after us with their usual care. Two super evenings spent in the restaurant with lovely food on both evenings. This hotel is also second to none for it's freshly cooked to order breakfast. We will be back!

Lovely hotel, excellent-sized rooms. The restaurant is brilliant, food very tasty, the staff very friendly and attentive. We stayed here after a shopping trip to Bicester and found it to be ideally located. There isn't much to do in Kirtlington itself, but we didn't mind this as the restaurant offered plenty of choice both for veggies and non-veggies alike.

This is the second time we have stayed at the Dashwood, This time we opted for the Delux Double and were given a lovely room in the main building directly above the bar. The whole hotel was spotless, warm and comfortable and our room was spacious. Only a slight concern was the sound of voices from the bar below (had...

On arrival we were greeted with a very warm welcome by Scott, Nicky, and their team. The hotel was small but very cosy. Rooms were spotless. The food was fabulous and very very tastey.
