Enjoyed the shops in Banbury on Saturday and the gardens of Stowe House on Sunday. Hotel room was clean, comfortable and, as per my request, located away from the function rooms. Excellent English breakfast and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Special thanks to Mr. F. Antonini at Reception who helped me with my online check-in.
The overall experience was very good: Hotel was: - charming (very creaky floorboards)in the original part - lots of interesting history: - very clean; - rooms overlooking garden are much quieter (late night passing revellers and pealing bells) could cause disturbance. - only gripe is the double bed seemed small..but we are used to kingsize! - staff were very helpful and attentive; - breakfast was excellent: hot, fresh, good variety/choice and replenished regularly. - generous midday checkout time. Overall - excellent value!!. We visited some surroundin villages, Burford, Woodstock, Oxford, Bicester Village Designer Outlet. We intended to visit Blenheim but the afternoon disappeared and we decided that arriving mid afternoon would not afford sufficient time to do this exceptional landmark house and gardens - so we have vowed to revisit the area again next year and tour Blenheim properly! All in all - a wonderful weekend!
My room dated back to 1687. It had wooden beams and a wardrobe so ancient that I was starting to believe the place might have a ghost.. and I might be sharing a room! I need not have worried.. I took a walking tour of the town taking in the famous Banbury Cross with its statue of a fine lady on a white horse. The guide showed us many old coaching inns but The Globe Room at Ye Olde Reindeer proved irresistible. We went and drank where Cromwell downed his pints!. Back at the hotel we had a delicious dinner and more than one nightcap in the snug bar. The buffet breakfast was generous and set me up quite nicely for a day of touring The Cotswolds. I am very happy to recommend this hotel.
We arrived at Mercure Whately Hall Hotel, located in the city centre and within walking distance to all the sights. We quickly dropped our bags in our rooms before meeting in reception for an informative tour of Banbury. Our guide (a local man who wrote a column in the local paper) and was very passionate about the place he lived. We started off at the famous Banbury cross roads and went on a short walk visiting Butchers row, The Corn x change (where the market is held). Our last stop was the Reindeer inn pub which had a globe room upstairs, this was where all the travellers used to meet to discuss their journey.. We arrived back at the hotel which was an old looking building with a dark brown brick, inside the hotel is very traditional, in a very nice way with lots of character. Some rooms are located in the main building with others in the adjoining annex. The rooms were a good size. After dinner we returned to the Reindeer pub a short walk away where we enjoyed a couple of drinks in the Globe Room.. After a superb breakfast we departed for Blenheim Palace from Banbury which only took 30 minutes
