                          • Couple
                            7.4

                            Bar / restaurant staff often appeared inexperienced / stressed. Other than that a perfect weekend.

                          • Older travelers
                            8.2

                            Very pleasant building and staff

                            We did not like the extra charge of £2.50 for fish at breakfast. When we booked on your web site we thought we were having a 4 poster bed ,but we did not get one.I think you should point out that there might not be one. One of the reasons we booked with you was for this bed.

                          • Couple
                            9.6

                            Very historic cosy building with all the comforts of a great hotel. Friendly service and good food.

                          • Older travelers
                            9.2

                            Superb location and charming old style hotel. Very relaxing weekend spent at the hotel with very polite staff. Food was always served on piping hot plates.

                          • Older travelers
                            5.4

                            quaint and historical

                            the room was situated underneath a staircase, the creaking from staff and guests going to and from upper floors kept us awake.

                          • Older travelers
                            9.6

                            good quality comfortable hotel. we will almost certainly return - unusual for us to state this. Nice breakfast. our room was large and congenial with tea making and other accoutrements all present.

                          • Family with children
                            10.0

                            Location being on the doorstep of the Palace; we had a wedding to attend there. Staff very friendly, village peaceful and the sense of security. We were upgraded to an executive twin which was lovely. Room service breakfast was on time and the food was still hot when it arrived which was wonderful.

                          • Older travelers
                            4.6

                            Very good restaurant.

                            Restaurant very busy could not always get booking.Staff not very polite or helpful.

                            Beautiful facilities. Our rooms were clean and very comfortable. We loved being close to Blenheim Palace and totally enjoyed our English Breakfast! Staying here was a total delight!

                            I wish we had a hair dryer in our room but other than that, everything was great!

                            From our arrival to when we reluctantly left we were made to feel welcome and relaxed. Nothing was too much trouble.

                            The mattress and the noise from the creaking floorboards as the people in the room above us walked about.
