THE HOLT HOTEL
Lovely hotel, it blends modern comfort with it's historic past very well.
The information in the room needs updating though, it said there was a charge for wifi, but ther wasn't.
THE HOLT HOTEL
Arrived at 1900, checked in by a very polite young man, went to room to put bags in, only 1 bath towel so back to reception to get another, room was big and clean, bathroom could have done with an update but plenty of hot water for shower with a good pressure.
The bar was a bit disappointing for myself as no daught beer, but that's just me. Only ate breakfast which was good,never ate dinner there as I was told on arrival it would be 9pm if we wanted to eat as they were busy, even though there were 9 empty tables in the restaurant, so we ventured to the local pub for food and glad we did as there was real ale on tap and very good food.
We booked via Late Rooms and the website and hotel looked fine, on arrival the interior was drab, old worn out carpets and a general feeling of shoddiness.
the room was very pre 80's and given the price paid of £125 a premier inn would have come up far higher on standards, noise began at 0400hrs in the corridor and continued until we left at 0730, having had a very restless night attempting to sleep on a very old worn out divan bed.
We were a bit concerned that once again we had booked a hotel that had a wedding party on the same night however, it didn't both us in the least.
Our room was well away from the noise and we had a very peaceful night. Breakfast was busy but the staff were very attentive. We loved the location and would recommend it if you are touring this area. We used it as a stop over on our way to the south coast.
Several people complaining at the same time
The staff and cleanliness of the hotel were very good, that is where it ended.
It appears that the hotel has not been refurbished since the early 70s. The carpets threadbare, curtains ripped extractor fan broken. We turned down of first room as it was tiny and next top the busy road even though the hotel was practically empty. Second room was adequate after a long drive. The bed was old, mates stained and uncomfortable with little sleep on the first night. We paid £80 a night, it was worth £40 a night. Very disappointed as from the outside it looks beautiful. If the best thing about a hotel is the shower water pressure you have a problem. The staff said they are refurbishing the hotel, well my recommendation would be too close till it is finished.
Poor value for money.
Rooms in desperate need of redecorating. Have taken this up with the hotel directly.
The hotel was very clean and all the staff were very friendly and answered all the questions we had and even recommended things we could do in the area.
The hotel is in a brilliant location close to biecester village, the town centre and also Banbury all about 10 mins away. The food in the hotel was amazing and definatly worth 5* although it is expensive its well worth the money. The hotel also had a bar with a pool table and TV which was very relaxing in the evenings.
fantastic hotel spooky room **** food***** staff*****
