Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by billtw tiny room nice breakkie
"family room" was tiny with small double and no bath - theres no baths in the entire place. Not v comfy bed and cramped shower room. didnt sleep well at all.
breakfast was very good for this type of hotel and the communal area nice downstairs. Bascially a posh premier inn but premier inn has baths, bigger shower rooms and beds and biscuits.
basically nice hotel for single businessman - not the best for families.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by adrianplatinummember attentive, friendly staff. good location
Located just off the M40, but no obvious traffic noise. Modern, clean hotel. Fairly standard hol inn express design, friendly reception staff make for a more informal experience.
All rooms have wired internet (free ), but if you need WiFi, either have to work in bar/reception, or borrow a WiFi adaptor (which for some reason are stored away from reception in a locked cabinet in a locked cupboard it seems ! Takes ages to get one.
Only 2 criticisms- WiFi internet connection speed is terrible, like dial-up. And the sausages at breakfast- don't even try them. Please, get better quality ones

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Minounette Value for money with excellent staff
Was greeted by very friendly and professional staff. The reception area was clean and welcoming. Our bedroom was very comfortable and offered a choice of pillows. I was pleasantly surprised by the choices offered for the complimentary breakfast all looking and tasting very fresh. It was good to see such dedicated and happy staff.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by northernline42 Room pristine including bathroom.
Stayed one night 03/08/2013.
Impressed with hotel and room facilities and cleanliness, also staff approachability and helpfulness. Spotless lounge areas and reception.
No restaurant but Frankie and Benny's or Toby Carvery
options available across car-park.
Breakfast options need reviewing and quality of hot food disappointing - particularly the 'scrambled egg - which was strange in consistency and tasteless.
However, we would happily stay there again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by hen2 Great staff but no wireless
I stayed here on business for one night. The staff and the facility where great but the there is no wireless in the guest rooms. They did bring me a router which still did not work. I had a proposal to send and I couldn't send it. I spent 2-3 hours trying to get the system working. One of the guys from downstairs spent 40 mins in my room and he was very helpful but it still didn't work. I expect this chain / brand to have a wireless system in place and I am very disappointed that they didn't.

My husband and I stayed for one night with our 2 young daughters (ages 2 and 4 months). We were attending a wedding on the area. Having telephoned to advise we would need to check in as early as possible, we were delighted that our room was ready at 11am when we arrived so that we could get ready for the wedding. The room was exactly what we needed and a travel cot was provided free of charge.
The reception staff were friendly and helpful. They were even able to provide an iPhone charger as I had forgotten mine.
Breakfast was great. Our 2 year old loved it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by suzies Repeat stay just as good
Had a two night stay in a twin room facing the front car park, which is a bit quieter than the rear rooms,although I have stayed in those in the past and have not been disturbed by traffic. Check in fine, room clean, tidy if a little sparse with regard to hanging space and drawers, but perfectly workable. The air conditioning worked fine and was not too noisy. The breakfast provided was fine, cereals, toast, scrambled eggs and beans set me up for the day. The staff were very pleasant, Overall a good stay and I will be repeating the experience again in September.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NotAngeorAngela Very pleasant stay
Staff friendly without being annoying. Room very clean, bed very comfortable. Breakfast basic quality but substantial. Need more milk and tea bags in the room.
One very minor annoyance was that the toilet dripped and when I told reception the next morning they already knew about it, hotel wasn't full so why did we get that room? Good thing it didn't keep us awake or I'd have been very annoyed!
All in all a pleasant stay for my 6 year old and I.

First time have stayed at a holiday Inn and not welcomed as a Platinum Guest. Nothing mentioned at all in checking. When checking out staff we're more occupied chatting with themselves than checking me out which was done hastily finally. Not a pleasant experience

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bazzo22 Excellent Choice...............
... for accommodation in the area for a tourist. Near to the M40 but far away enough not to be bothered by noise, close enough to Banbury for night life such as pubs and restaurants - just a short taxi ride.
Great staff very helpful and cheery. Clean and still new looking hotel. a reasonable price (should have bacon with breakfast rather than two types of sausage).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MSL123 Very Good Value for Money
Very happy with the hotel for one night. The room felt a little bit stark and there was not much hanging or drawer space, so we would have been struggling if we were staying for a week with a lot of stuff. Spotlessly clean and helpful maid when we locked ourselves out. Air conditioning very efficient and the staff had taken note of our request for a quiet room.
The bathroom is very small and the ventilation seemed to be non-existent. The only way to clear the steam after a shower was to leave the door to the room open. Plenty of hot water and thought had obviously gone into the design as the door to the bathroom closed shut around the toilet as well, effectively closing it off as a separate room.
We were disappointed that the restaurant was not open on Saturday nights and hadn't seen anything on the website to indicate this. A Toby Carvery (which was running out of food at 7pm) and a Frankie & Benny's are just across the car park. We opted for the latter - service and music great, but food very greasy and a bit over cooked.
Breakfast in the hotel was very good, even the coffee from the machine, and the staff kept everything replenished and tables cleared. When someone dropped their whole tray of plates and food, there was no drama, just a series of staff cleaning up within seconds.
Reception efficient and I was even phoned a few days in advance, because I had inadvertently booked online for 1 person instead of 2 and they wanted to check how many and which type of room.
Would happily return again for a short stay.

My husband, myself and our 10 year old stayed for 3 nights to attend a local event. Hadn't stayed at a Holiday Inn Express before. We were pleasantly surprised. Good comfortable room on the "quiet" side of the hotel, lovely breakfast and very helpful staff. Nice touches were the complimentary bottles of water and cereal bars at Reception. Would recommend and will be staying here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by robert23 Good, but...
I stayed at the hotel two times. First time was excellent. But second time room was not so good. I booked double with sofa, but there was no any sofa, only its traces on the floor. Besides air condition switch didn't work properly (it was impossible to regulate temperature - higher or lower).
And bar closes too early)

Good stop off point when driving north. Room comfortable, breakfast adequate price reasonable but thought of booking again (in two weeks time) price has risen to a point that is not good value.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cheekychops Several visits
We have stayed at this HIE on several occasions - we make it a halfway stop on our way down to the south coast. We have always enjoyed our visits with helpful staff and clean, comfortable accommodation. Not necessarily the cheapest but very convenient - not too far from the motorway and plenty of interesting places to visit without doing too much extra travelling.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fefifofum Excellent Holiday Inn
We enjoyed an excellent stay at the Banbury Holiday Inn.
It was an easy check in, the room was very very clean and spacious.
The only thing we were not to happy with the temperature in the room. There is a controller on the wall but it was not too consistent so ended up opening the window in the middle of the night.
Apart from that it was an excellent room.
The breakfast was very nice but would have preferred more hot options such ask bacon, hash browns etc.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by OldOak Great Service
Holiday Inn Banbury has excellent staff and they provide excellent service. The rooms are always clean and well maintained, however, some of the beds could do with new mattresses.
Could do with a change of breakfast as Scrambled Egg, Sausages and Beans has been on the menu for years. How about Bacon, Tomatoes, Mushrooms, Hash Browns??
Always happy to stay at Holiday Inn Banbury

The room was clean and comfortable. Check in/out very easy and the hotel is in a good location. Just one small issue, the hot breakfast items were luke warm and not very good quality. But overall I would recommend staying here.
