Myself and my partner stayed here for two nights in March 2017. We brought our Scottish terrier with us and stayed in one of the hotel's pet-friendly rooms. The room itself was very clean and tidy. The shower and bath were excellent and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast in the mornings was really nice as well and all...

Stayed here March 2017, very surprised as whole experience was perfect. The reception area and pub are tastefully decorated, the room was too and the bathroom was well above standard (separate bath and large shower). Breakfast was one of the best I've ever had so I'll be back next time I'm in the area.

Like a boutique hotel rather than something like a Travelodge or Premier Inn, and better value for money. A warm welcome was extended to us by every single member of staff, and the service and attention to detail was way beyond expectation for a hotel in this price bracket. The room was modern with a lovely bathroom, comfortable beds, modern...

Booked for a business meal for 8 of us. We were well looked after. There is a cozy bar area adjacent to the restaurant for pre dinner drinks and the dining area is well laid out with exposed beams - the pub dates back several hundred years - and plenty of areas for large groups and small cozy tables. It...

Have stayed here a few times when I need to be at the science park in Harwell with work. Reliably good rooms, great dinners and breakfasts and at the right price. This is a go-to work stay venue. Happy to recommend.
