My room was absolutely filthy, stains on toilet, dirty shower and tiles behind the sink, the bathroom floor was dirty and my single bed was uncomfortable with a blanket with stains on. There was a sign on the wall to dial 0 for reception but no phone! The kettle was on the floor. The windowsills had dirt and mould on...

I was booked here for 6 nights for business and wanted to cancel the remainder of my stay after the first 2 nights. I called to ask if I could cancel from the following day as I appreciated that it was too short notice to cancel my stay that evening. I spoke to an extremely rude man called Paul who...

I can understand you being upset and saying i was rude because you didn't get your way. We have a cancellation policy as all hotels do as we have to fill our rooms. If had said to you on your first night sorry i have sold your room for more money and a longer duration that would not be acceptable....

Recently received an email confirmation of my stay, which we had cancelled before our trip. Spoke to the owner who was very unhelpful when phoned to question this!!! Customer service was non existent. If hotel is like the owner glad I'm not staying!!!

We cannot cancel the rooms as you came through a agent that is what i told you and all i told you, if you don't cancel through your booker you will be charged its all in your confirmation.What's unhelpful about that i would say sound advice maybe not what you want to hear but you made the booking not us.

Unhygienic. Carpets so old, they stink of the years of tobacco smoke. Junk in the hallway. Furniture and fittings from 70's/80's or older, and broken. The geezer who runs the place was rude when the room door slammed which shows bad maintenance since he should've adjust the door spring to close gently in the first place! And he charged £90...

i was met by rude and blunt receptionist, only interested in getting payment for room at £70 excluding breakfast. Room very small, shower broken, light from out side flashing in room. Would not stay there again.

I've read some really bad reviews for this hotel but, bearing in mind the price, it is good value. The man who checked us in was welcoming. Our room was enormous and though the 4 poster bed creaked, it was beautifully made up, the linen smelled really fresh and everything was spotlessly clean. The bathroom was tired agreed but there...

Allocated a teensy tiny room on the front with a tiny window and no ensuite. Freezing cold. I found it quite expensive. Didn't bother me that its not in the town centre. Only stayed here because Im not familiar with Banbury hotels and remembered a friend had lived at the hotel back in 1995 (yes moons ago!) and only after...

We stayed in Chalet 49, the front door step was loose / wobbley. The shower / toilet room extractor fan didn't work and the bedding was damp and the towels.

Ramp into disabled access room but could not move the wheelchair round the room. Plus you need to be able to walk up two steps to get to breakfast. Breakfast was ok but had to ask for more coffee. Send No notification of booking. So had to ring up to check my booking. Sorry I can't recommend this place.
