My wife and I (and the rest of the English speaking world) took advantage of an offer and stayed for two nights bed, breakfast and evening meal. Extras included a drinks tray, a bottle of red wine and a glass of prosecco each at both evening meals. We had a lovely room in the older part of the hotel, All...

Travelled with my family and young son, swimming pools are key to all hotel trips as the boy loves it. The De Vere was the best looking hotel with a pool in the area, it's a short drive into Oxford, it's a rural-ish area, peace, quiet, nice. £140 per night, it's a good price for the Oxford area, especially considering...

Had an overnight stay with Secret Escapes...very impressed. Nice room...spa area functional but needs updating...had the most fabulous massage though. Every staff member we dealt with was very friendly and professional. Dinner was extremely tasty and breakfast plentiful with hot and cold buffet. Had no complaints whatsoever and would have given a five if the spa was better as I...

Myself and my other half stayed here for 2 nights early February. Our package included dinner on both nights as well as breakfast and a welcome tray in our room which was fully stocked on both days!

My husband and I have just stayed at the De Vere and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location was in a small village with a good nearby pub and right on the Thames.

We just spent a lovely weekend in this hotel despite the rain and snow! The hotel is lovely, the bar area has so much character and is such a lovely place to have a pre dinner or after dinner drink. The bar also serves food which we didn't try as we had dinner included but it looked very nice. The...

Stayed with my girlfriend over a weekend. Fantastic experience. Not too far from Oxford (10 minutes with a cab) but far enough if you want to disconnect.
