We stayed in Easington guest house for the MotoGP and they couldn't have been any friendlier.
We arrived to a warm welcome and felt at home as soon as we got there. The room was cosy and the bed was amazingly comfortable. We had 3 brilliant nights sleep followed by a tasty breakfast each day. Loved it, we would stay there again in a heart beat.
So glad we choose this hotel
Had a very pleasant stay.
Couldn't fault the room, staff or quality of food. The landlady Debbie is very friendly and made us very welcome. WIll definitely return!
A warm welcome, but.....
The hotel is conveniently located for Banbury town centre.
My wife and I stayed for 2 nights. The staff present when we arrived gave us a very warm welcome and were extremely helpful with organising a parking space for us. Thereafter, we were disappointed. While the hotel grounds and public rooms were well-maintained, pleasant and comfortable, our bedroom (6) was in need of some urgent TLC. The decor and furnishings were "tired". The bedcover/duvet was "exhausted", as witnessed by the padding that had broken out down one side. The breakfasts were average (we did not sample the evening fare). On our first visit to the dining room, we sat,completely ignored, for 15 minutes, while the waitress brought food for others and took away their used plates. A ""will be with you in a moment" acknowledgement wouldn't have gone amiss. We were eventually served after my wife went to the kitchen and queried whether we had to place our order there. The service was infinitely better on our second visit.
Could be so much better
Beautiful house from the outside, very welcoming and helpful staff Room a bit dated and would have benefited from some refurbishment.
Evening meal was appalling and so we ate out after the first night. Breakfast good. Convenient for Silverstone and a reasonable price. The hotel took the whole payment for the booking 4 months in advance of our arrival.
Good for basic accomodation, if you plan to use it as a base only
The website was misleading, we expected to find a hotel with grounds that we could enjoy & sit out in.
The photo's are unrecognisable and must have been taken some time ago. It is actually very close to a main road and there were patio tables with only small areas of lawn around the house. My room was at the front of the hotel, which was extremely close to the noisy main road, and I had trouble sleeping. Added to that people were running around and slamming doors from 7.00am and they were strimming the lawn immediately outside my window at 8.30am. Two nights in the bed and my back was really suffering. There were no nets at the window so pedestrians on the opposite pavement could look straight in my room and I had to shut the curtains and put on the light when I wanted to dress. The en suite was so tiny, I had to leave the door open when I used it to stop feeling claustrophobic, which again meant that I had to to close the curtains and put on the light each time I used it. The website gave the impression that all rooms had a bath and shower, but I only had a tiny shower, that you could barely move in. This was also a complaint of my travelling companions who like me, had hoped to have a relaxing bath after a long journey. The breakfast was lovely, but the service wasn't great, for example we got toast without butter, so we asked for it twice. The third time I asked, we got the butter but the toast was stone cold. I do appreciate that the hotel was full, but if they can't cope, they should reduce the numbers that they cater for. I did notice that other people were also complaining about similar things. I was traveling in a group and my friends who were couples were asked if everything was ok, and they had their complaints dealt with, I was ignored and didn't feel able to initiate a complaint conversation again. Between my friends and I we were missing biscuits from the hospitality tray each of the two days. The day we arrived we hadn't eaten for 14 hours when we got there, and we were relying on having biscuits before we went to bed but we had to starve. The room itself was clean apart from some stains on the coverlet. I was pretty disappointed overall. The staff themselves were friendly, but maybe should be aware that when they are talking about us in the kitchen we can hear them, as we're sitting in the lounge!
Worse than a home for the elderly
Friendly greeting and the grounds were very nice but the room was small, low beams and slanted walls, only 1 small window, , the dinner was disgusting, I had rump steak and was overlooked and very bland, I should have known as on the sign outside was a chef required sign , wish we had eaten out, poor food, poor value but friendly staff.
No bar , restaraunt only open from 6.30 till 7.45 , breakfast was ok but wouldn't stay there again let alone eat there, sadly the food made McDonald's look and taste good
Cannot fault this lovely establishment
The reception we received was warm even though we arrived late in the evening.
The room was very comfortable supplying all the facilities required from a superior guest house. The gardens are well kept and delightful. The breakfast was excellent. I have to admit that the stay was due to an early hospital visit which is within easy walking distance but this is an ideal base for some of the loveliest countryside in the country.
Lovely accommodation, welcoming and friendly.
Our "Double Room" should have been a single.
Room 3 had about 9 inches between bed and wall on one side and was not very comfortable. Requested an hour extension in room as we were going to a midday funeral and were told this was not possible, all rooms to be vacated by 10am. Were offered a chance to sit in the hallway if we wanted, which we declined. We were really disappointed with our stay there as we had had a much better experience on our last visit 2 years ago. Will not be staying there again.
