    Good

    Good car park. Convenient. Fair price in an expensive area.

    Very Rambling with long corridors. Signage within them could be better

    Fabulous

    The staff

    I had to be up and out early 5.45am and the hotel did not offer me any breakfast box to take with me.As the breakfast time was 8.00am and 7.00am.

    Very good

    The second room we were given was spacious modern and well furnished with a nice bathrooom. The restaurant and bar are very pleasant. The food and drinks were nice and also good value. The location is within easy travelling distance to Bicester Designer Outlet village being only 10 minutes drive.

    There was a wedding on and our first room was in the older part of the hotel and directly above the disco. Also the bathroom there was dated. However the staff were very accomadting to out request to a room on the other side of the hotel.

    Fabulous

    Very attentive staff and good food

    Our bedroom was a bit on the small side and smelled of damp, but there are other bigger rooms.

    Superb

    The atmosphere was fantastic, location perfect (we had booked a driving experience at Heyford Park) and the staff was sweet and helpfull. We enjoyed a 3 course dinner which maybe wasn't a 5 star-experience but definetly value for money and a great dinner. We spend much time in the Pub and generally the Hotel was as English as we had hoped for - certainly recommendable :-)

    The breakfast was good, a full English breakfast,plenty of choices. Staff are friendly.

    We stayed at the Holt Hotel for 2 nights. We had booked online and the place looked nice and new, however, we got a small attic room with grubby bathroom. A loud fan whirred all night, no airco, and needed to have the window open for cool air, which meant very loud road noises.

    Superb

    Easy going, friendly staff; interesting ghost story with the same family name as mine. Excellent location for Oxford Boating/Cherwell and Blenheim Castle Park. The Bar was comfortable and had a nice atmosphere.

    The DuVall restaurant was ok, but I suggest giving the menu more of a French-fusion themed cuisine; maybe add a speciality dish, and a couple of vegetarian items to choose from. If the restuarant had a makeover, it could really be a draw for people in the area and even a destination restaurant. Also, maybe pipe in some different music - jazz?

    It had kept its character from the original coaching Inn, was very comfortable and the food was lovely. Also liked the history.

    Superb

    Great hotel, arrived during a rush though so made it a bit stressful, but not hotels fault! Only downside really was the wifi, paid £5 for 24 hrs but wifi was terrible, kept losing connection and when connected was very poor. Apart from that, room great, food great. Will be visiting again!

    Good

    It provided comfortable accomodation at a reasonable price close to where we were visiting

    The ensuite facitity should not have had carpet as this is unhygenic.

    In need of a good clean and brightening up, rather drab decor and furnishings. Bathroom towels were rough and some needed to be replaced. A better selection of teas and coffees in the room hostess tray; the biscuits were not replaced on the second night. Bar food presentation was poor and untidy. There was a draught from the bedroom window. Breakfast was excelent for both service and quality of food.
