Lovely food, nice wines, nice atmosphere, not much of a bar seating area but Thame is lovely and well worth a stay

Don't stay in room 17- not only is it tiny, you have to squeeze around the bed to get to the other side of the room, but it is at the front of the hotel by the very busy high street, and the double glazing looks like it's from the 70s and is pretty inefficient. This wouldn't be too bad... More

We (party of 4) were welcomed to the dining room, attentive service and an excellent meal. Very good value. A 3 course meal, good selection and most tasteful.

Smooth check in, room was nice although a little small, but really we didn't need much space! Dinner in the bar area was really nice, and breakfast was just as good. The Raspberry Bellini from the cocktail menu was a winner! Staff all really friendly. Had been a few times before for Sunday lunch, and wasn't disappointed now we've stayed... More

Nice place with plenty of space and slightly quirky decor - in a good way. Nice reliable menu (european style food) and all very good. Service is friendly and prices are sensible. Good spot for a business dinner. All pretty safe and nothing to rock your world - but good quality.

The room we were given was one of the re-vamped rooms. It was, however, incredibly small and the toilet smelled. The receptionist reluctantly showed us to a new room, one that had not been modernised. While tatty, the new room was bigger. The breakfasts were okay, but the evening meal was unimaginative. Overall, poor service is what lets this hotel... More

We brought a groupon for this hotel as it was an excellent location for Oxford. It was well worth it. Checking in was easy despite some confusion over booking. The evening meal was included and was very nice with no hassle over what you can and cannot have. The rooms were amazing I would like to see all of them... More

The Spread Eagle does surprisingly good food. The Sunday Lunch in particular is really great and excellent value at £10.50 or £15.50 for 2courses. All of us in our party of four could only manage 2 courses starter + main, and I can eat, but 3 course would have pushing it! We've also eaten there in the evening off the... More

Found the Spread Eagle by chance when away near Oxford and searching for somewhere to celebrate our 21st anniversary! Glanced through the window at the super interior and decided this was for us! Stylish and with a warm, friendly welcome we were instantly at home. As vegetarians there isn't a wide choice ... but what was on offer was fantastic... More
