            The staff were friendly and the food was fantastic - we had an evening meal the night we arrived. We had breakfast the two days we were there - delicious. Plus the beds were really comfy

            Located walking distance from present relatives and ancestors. Pleasant town to wander around. Served our purpose.

            Car parking space limited. Not very friendly.

          • Family with children

            Good staff, nice breakfast and good location.

            Rather shabby-due a refit shortly though.

          • Group of friends

            The hotel, although due to close for complete refurbishment was fine for the price but it was the location that suited myself. I would imagine nthat once the refurb is comlete that it will be ale to compete with the top budget chains.

            Nothing really, it was as expected and didn't dissapoint.

            We look forward to staying at the re-modelled Marlborough next year. The place had atmosphere, warmth and history but bring on the restoration project. Considering that the staff had been given redundancy notice they were amazing and deserve to be re-hired with a loyalty bonus.

            I would have liked to have known that the old Marlborough was in its death throes when I booked. The first notification that we had was on arrival with a sign outside on the pavement announcing a closing down sale of furniture and fittings! We moved rooms after one night (of 3) as Room 1 reeked of stale tobacco and had no hot water. Having complained however the duty manager re-roomed us helpfully and with good grace. She is one of the staff leaving under redundancy!

            The staff were all excellent, lovely and friendly, they could not have been better!

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel was right in the centre of Witney. Good value for money.

            Only thing that slightly put me off was that the throws over the beds were a bit stained. However the bed sheets themselves were nice and clean so no harm done really.

          • Group of friends
            6.6

            Old fashioned , bathroom & bedrooms outdated , hotel needs major re-furb

          • Family with children
            10.0

            We had a party of four and we all found this hotel excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent and the bed was super comfy. The room also came with great facillities. It has an excellent location right opposite the markets and town centre. We went to Whitney to visit the Wychwood Brewery and the hotel is literally a 10 min walk away!

            It's not really the fault of the hotel but on the weekends it is next to a nightclub and so from 10pm onwards to the early hours it is noisy and so you may struggle to sleep. The hotel is also in need of a little modernisation. We had a big crack in our wall and sink.

            I have stayed at this hotel before and found it to be very good away from the front, near the road. However I had a room in the annex this time. I had trouble locking my room from the inside as the handle to the lock was missing. The room was looking a bit tired and could do with a lot of looking at. I did point this out and was told that the Company are doing a major refurb this year. It could do with it and I look forward to staying here again.....if I can afford it after the refurb

            Comfy four poster bed, yummy breakfast, friendly staff.

            Grotty bathroom - not horrendous, just in need of some work.

          • Single
            5.4

            the beer in the pub and the iron and tv in the bedroom

            torn curtains, non flushing toilet, 1960s bathroom, very limited hot water.

          • Older travelers
            5.8

            The location of the hotel is excellent. The room was very average certainly needs updating. The hot tap in the bath would not switch off without a massive struggle and nearly caused me to scold myself and did mean to report it to Reception (Room 8). The breakfast was very nice but overall expensive for the room accommodation. I also tried on several occasions to ring and book the accommodation, but no one ever answered the phone which I found most frustrating. Overall a nice location but a hotel that clearly needs money spent on it.

          • Single
            9.2

            Centrally located for town & nightlife

            Heating full on in room which necessitated window being open over a very noisy street, clubs etc

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Location was good centred in a old market town very English and near to country side and historical sites. Staff were friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the food. Over all was satisfactory onjoyed week end. Thank you.

            No soap in bathroom, could not turn down heat in bedroom and at the other end no heat in bathroom. Parking a little dificult if you have a function on with other guests staying.
