1 Night stay

The room was clean, bedroom was small with a 15" flat screen on wall.

The bathroom was bigger than needed, the space could be converted to have a larger bedroom. Was woken by chickens after 4am so sleep was limited. Staff were pleasant and courteous.

Lovely location

Nicely finished with good quality linen and towels however far too hot due to unlagged hot water pipes running through room.

The tiny sink in the huge bathroom was silly and very hard to use, especially when trying to fill the kettle. Very nice continental breakfast although could have done with some bread as well as the croissant. No phone signal with 3

We stayed in the Wharf Manager's room and had a comfortable night.

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. There was a fair amount of traffic using the road outside, which was not a problem for us but could be for someone who doesn't like noise. The stairs could be a problem for an elderly or disabled person, as the treads were angled and rather narrow. The attached bistro ( open 9.00 till 5.00) serves excellent food and a tasty breakfast, but be warned - you need cash as they don't accept card payments. We had a decent evening meal at the Barley Mow in the next village ( Upper Heyford).

Manager's room

Very clean with good shower excellent towels.

Room of a good standard.

Unfortunately for us the room was small with a very small basin. A bit restrictive for food and checking in but a very good pub nearby for an evening meal.

Staying at Canal Cottage.

It is a lovely location, set on the Oxford Canal which you can walk along.

The kingsize bed is ok but only has a double duvet. Parlour Rooms are a good size but the basin in the bathroom is so tiny, with a glass shelf above which makes it virtually impossible to wash or clean your teeth, let alone have a shave. For some reason hot water was very hard to come by and the toilet flush sprayed water onto the floor and seat every time it was used. On the final day we were left no milk for our tea or coffee.

Lovely cottage and location

The staff were very accommodating and friendly and the location of the cottage is lovely, right next to the canal with good transport links by road into Oxford.

If you stay in the 'Parlour Rooms' going to the bathroom means crossing a small area of the cottage that is accessible to other guests but this wasn't a concern for us. Bedroom and bathroom both well presented. A little bit of water damage to a skirting board in the bathroom but nothing major and overall the rooms were good quality and as seen in the pictures. Breakfast is provided in the fridge when you arrive, not the most enormous continental breakfast I've ever seen but definitely tasty. All in all, a great place to stop over for a few nights, a short drive from Oxford and Woodstock and very quaint. Would stay again.

Description and photographs of the property did not match the actual accommodation.

The room was clean although a number of flies could be seen lurking around. The bathroom (corridor like) was fine for showering but alas cleaning your teeth presented more difficulty. The bathroom had the smallest sink I have ever seen and a long glass shelve fitted above it. People were friendly and Steven's full cooked English breakfast is very worthwhile. In a good location though and very pleasant sitting outside watching the narrow boats and the wildlife.
