Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JuliaW60 Small room, under staffed
Not a great experience. Did not live up to expectation despite promising website and approach to hotel. Very understaffed in lounge bar with staff doing their best in difficult circumstances. Room small and box like, only one tea bag, no shower cap and large crack in wall.
Would not return.

The hotel liked a palace. A two miles tree-lined road led us to the reception of the hotel. You need to have a car to access to this hotel. The hotel was a listed historical building but recently refurnished at a high standard. The surrounding was green, fresh, natural and spacious. It is suitable for personal relaxation or off-site business conferencing.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marsue123 Overall Good but not Great
Check in was efficient and speedy. Room was good but lacking the final attention to detail expected and experienced at other similar graded hotels. Bottled water was not in the room and only one bath robe. Easily rectified if checked but also easily noticed by the the visitor.
Food in the bar good and served with a smile.
Breakfast very crowded and had to ask twice for poached eggs as staff really busy with an overcrowded room. The breakfast service is this hotels real Achilles heel it's not relaxing as the room is too small for the size of the two hotels. You trip over people back and forth to the buffet.
Grounds well tended and very pleasant to walk in.
Overall served a purpose for our intended visit, ideal base for Blenheim Palace.
The hotel just needs a bit of extra refinement.
