Pokey room; poor range of TV channels; leaking shower; inadequate radio; missing lights in bathroom
Friendliness of the staff No information provided for people with special needs.
Clean room with tea & coffee making facilities, lots of hot water, good breakfast & proximity to town centre (walking 5/10 mins). Enjoyed age & feel of building. Staff polite but not particularly friendly, although I admit that in Dubai we get used to our hotels offering an exemplary standard of service. Cromwell staff not particularly helpful or forthcoming when I needed to find information about train times. Did their jobs satisfactorily but didn't go 'extra mile'.
large garden area and reasonable bar menue
The bathroom was freezing cold, window wouldn't shut. The shower head, when turned sprayed water all over the bathroom, soaking the floor and everything else in it's way. I was informed of a party and that there would be noise in the marquee which would transer into the hotel at 11. However the horrendous noise from the disco which was in fact directly under my room started at 7p.m. or thereabouts. There was a connecting door to the next room and it sounded like the neighbours were in the same room as myself.
Breakfast was fantastic, great cooked breakfast and wide range of continental breakfast. Noise from the street, although due to the age of the building I guess modern double glazing is probably not allowed!
The staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs.
Clean, comfortable, friendly staff, brilliant Thai restaurant across the road
staff seemed friendly, breakfast was good,car park at the back,which is good,we had a courtyard room which was fine, no bath though,just shower nothing
Clean rooms. Friendly staff. Good location within the town.
The location and hotel itself were excellent and the lady in charge was brilliant, very good breakfast. Some of the other members of staff were not up to standard, left us standing around, gave me a room key and disappeared without showing us to our room or telling us where it was, when we came down for dinner I asked the waitress if our table was ready she said she would see and never came back, fortunately the lady in charge took over and was brilliant - saved the day!! Didnt think the food was quite as good as previously and a bit disappointed that menu's were just an A4 sheet of paper in the restaurant.
Nice large room with a very comfortable bed. Would have liked some fruit and yoghurt at breakfast as an alternative to cereal
Good and clean Lack of phone in room and lack of wifi identified as present in reception area
This hotel is newly refurbished. The service staff food room location very good couldn't fault it. Would recommend advance booking a table in the restaurant if staying at the weekend
The room was perfect and cosy and the food was excellent in the restaurant. Nothing
Rural setting. Tastful modern decor in the bar and restaurant. Friendly staff. None
Great food and Drink, friendly service Heating was not turned on in the rooms - which were a bit cold. there was mold in the shower (room 5) and a fire door is permently wedged open (same as last year).
Waking up in the middle of nowhere, looking at a field full of sheep was very relaxing. Perfect beds, clean room, correct breakfast. Staff is very friendly.
Could do with small tables beside beds to put cups on when sitting on bed. Shower heat settings seemed to work the wrong way round, red cold and blue hot.
good old world pub in quiet location ideal for our visit room was adequate,but no chairs in room allthough sufficient room,.not happy we couldnt book in untill 5,30,doors locked,?v,inconvenient,breakfast was adequate,but service very casual had to call for anything we wanted,meal in pub on the night was good quality for pub,but was overcharged on my visa,for items not on my bill,i-e about 20,percent more,when questioned about this staff were very defensive,& unhelpfull,got impression someone made a error but wouldnt admit it,?or was it error ?,thinking of reporting to authorities ,if not on my bill & over charged ,is it on the bookes,?
Location, helpful staff, room and bedroom area security At breakfast I ordered smoked haddock and was served haddock. Lovely for lunch but not breakfast. I do not think the member of staff knew what smoked haddock is.
The food & neil diamond tribute
Room was adjacent very busy road and hence very very!!! noisy which was a shame as it was a very good room for the price otherwise. had to set off at 7 20 am full breakfast not available till 7 30 am although toast coffee etc was provided
Nice-sized family room. Good breakfast. Curtains and fittings strating to look a bit tatty.
I liked the atmosphere about the place, the rooms were very clean and appealing, The waiters and waitresses were very obliging, and polite.There was a very comfortable feel about the whole place. My only reservations were regarding the unavailability of items on the food menu and the wine list.
The hotel was very comfortable and steeped in history. The hot water on the top floor of the hotel lacked pressure and was not always hot.
Breakfast excellent Fan in bathroom extremely loud and obviously faulty
Very comfortable , excellent VFM , good food and the staf were very pleasant and helpful No complaints at all
food, staff interior of the hotel part (pub is ok)

clean and good value, super breakfast
Staff were really helpful and polite. They took the trouble to use your name.
Easy going polite staff with a sense of humour. Restaurant food was excellant ,freshly cooked and able to deal with a special diet imaginatively. Double room with shower was perhaps a bit small
courtesy and service
friendly staff, good food, nice atmosphere
Nice surroundings, friendly staff. Cold.
very comfy bed
The room was very clean and pleasent. The staff are very friendly and accommodating
Size of room and bathroom. Plenty of room to move about, important for me as a disabled person. Slight difficulty with narrow winding staircase.I have limited mobility. I could manage up but not down. However, there was another regular staircase for going down!
Very friendly staff. Room of good size and comfortable had all the facilities one would expect. Food of excellent quality and quantity.Price very reasonable. We had three enjoyable nights at this hotel.
Friendly, comfortable, good breakfast. Minor: room unheated in daytime (chilly in February), although comfortable in morning/evening.
Bed, storage space, location, car park Breakfast finishes too early at 8.30am I would have preferred a bath The tv was rather small and the bedpost was in the way.
Very comfortable, warm and friendly atmosphere, good food served on quality china, in good location - made to feel really welcome - had afternoon tea in dining room with visiting family and small grandchild, perfect end to weekend break - thoroughly recommended. Couldn't fault anything.
It was convenient for our purpose and visit to Banbury, it was a good location which suited our needs, this hotel is an ideal base for a couple of nights. Good Home cooked breakfast. would have prefered a later breakfast time, but no complaints
Very friendly and helpful staff, excellent breakfast No smoking at all, but also no ashtray at the front door or nearby; this makes us stay away from this hotel next time. Only 5 channels on the tv
Could not get into room till 4pm did not leave much of the day left the staff
Breakfast was very good. Served in a pleasant light room with plenty of choice of food. Service a bit slow on second day - order for toast forgotten. Having to have breakfast between 7.30 and 8.30 am.
The land lady was very helpful and friendly. We were a little rushed out of breakfast which finished at 9.30 although we hadn't quite finished our food.
