Score from 634 reviews Very good
Comfortable room that was well equipped. Good location, only a short drive from Oxford city centre. Friendly staff who were quick to help. Hope to visit again.
The staff at The Bear and Ragged Staff were professional, extremely polite. The breakfast staff went out of their way to help with information when it was requested. The menu was also excellent and fairly priced.
Excellent service. beautiful rooms, great restaurant too. Superb.
Every were was very clean and fresh and very homely :) Food was great as well
We stayed in room one, labelled a 'superior double' and it was clean and beautiful. The staff were friendly and there were a range of complimentary breakfast options. Really modern features in the room and new bathroom. At most 10 minutes from Seacourt Park and Ride into the city centre.
Excellent restaurant if a little pricey. The food was very very good, and staff had great understanding of food intolerance. Large comfortable room with everything we needed.
A few items not available from menu, but this is a minor gripe. I would recommend anyone to stay here.
Lovely country pub hotel Rooms furnished to a high standard Very friendly staff - food all to a very high quality
Nothing to complain about - perfect
NICE CLEAN MODERN ROOM ALONG WITH A NICE BAR AND DINING ROOM. FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF MADE IT A VERY PLEASANT STAY. WILL GO BACK FOR A RETURN VISIT.
NOTHING TO DISLIKE. NO NEGATIVES, ONLY POSITIVES.
Interesting choice of evening food. Rooms with character. The staff were knowledgeable and approachable. Good coffee and wine.
Loft room was too hot. Too much FRIED food on breakfast plate so greasy. Better with grilled Mushrooms, tomatoes and black pud. Tasty though.
Fantastic room - good size, well-furnished, big bed
motion activated light in lobby between bedroom and bathroom
Very Friendly Staff Quality of rooms Well looked after and cared for Excellent food
Great rooms, great pub and atmosphere, great food and service
Location & food.
Food in the restaurant was marvellous
Although out of the city, the location provided easy access via the bus service to the downtown area.
The morning front desk staff was super, however in the evening things were completely different. The restaurant manager was rude and the food was only marginal.
The room was excellent as was breakfast - wonderful selection of fresh fruit plus freshly cooked hot food. We also had dinner in the restaurant which we could not fault and all well priced, even champagne by the glass at £6.50
A bit of a rickety staircase to get to room - but well worth the effort
Quiet village location, attractive pub, comfortable modern rooms and very good restaurant.
Restaurant service was very slow. We didn't get our first course until we'd been sitting at the table for almost an hour, though we had booked the time the previous day. Fortunately the food was excellent.
Great accommodation and staff, quality amenities
Wifi in hotel not in room
Great location which was close to oxford and it had a lovely country feel to it
The separate room 'upstairs' was wonderful - no noise, very clean, modern and fitted with a lovely bathroom. The restaurant is also worth a visit - lovely food and a great choice of drinks.
Myself and my partner stayed in room 5 after we were upgraded. I'd planned this trip for my boyfriends birthday and wanted something special. This hotel and room had the wow factor with super king bed, jucuzzi bath and tv in the bathroom. The little touches in the room made it really special and home from home. Little handmade biscuits, fresh milk in the fridge and bathrobes. The staff were lovely, location was nice and quiet. Breakfast was great with fresh fruit, cereal, toast and more available to help yourself to and a massive cooked breakfast. Overall a very special stay thank you.
Unfortunately we didn't have the best nights sleep as the mattress was lumpy and the springs were digging in abit. The food in the restaurant was all expensive and we ended up going into town. A few simpler options would be a great asset to people staying at the hotel.
Very helpful staff, great accommodation, good food was well looked after with food intolerances, clean and large room.
