    Lovely newly refurbished pub with good food and efficient landlady. Convenient location but not a particularly charming village.

    Very small bedroom although comfortable. Miserable bathroom - no shower - absolutely tiny with loo coming away from wall and broken tiles on the floor.

    Friendly staff. Service and food good.

    Pokey room and very expensive for size and quality. Not helped to find we had been sleeping on a sheet with rubber underneath on a very hot and airless night! Only one small window opened although we did have a fan without which it would have been like the black hole of calcutta. Only one tiny bar of soap and tiny bottle of shampoo for 3 of us. No shower and taps were very loose on bath.

    The food was excellent! I was so glad to be staying two nights to make the most of the food. The staff where friendly and welcoming and chatty.

    The room was rather small and the weather was very hot so it was very muggy in the room. But a fan was supplied to help the situation, and everything was really clean, a huge bonus.

    The staff was wonderful - very accommodating and helpful. The room was very cheerful, bright, nicely decorated and a comfortable size. The bed was very comfortable. Amenities included an iron and mini ironing board, hair dryer and the ability to make yourself a hot drink. The village of Cassington is about a 15 - 20 minute drive from Oxford. With a population of 710, it is very pleasant and of course very quiet. Lovely to walk around the town. The food at the pub was quite good. Even the vegetarian dishes were tasty. The wifi in the room was very good: strong signal and consistently a good speed. Breakfast was typical but nothing special: cold cereal, juice, eggs, bacon, beans, mushrooms, hash browns, toast. Be aware that there are no other eating places within a reasonable walking distance. This can be a problem as the pub is not always serving food. In my case, I arrived on a Saturday afternoon and food was not being served until 6:30 that evening. On Sunday, food was not served after 4:00pm. However, the staff offered to prepare a meal for me outside of serving hours, which was very nice of them. Overall, a great place to stay for a casual visit or an alternative to staying in Oxford.

    The room had a bathtub but no shower. Separate spouts for hot and cold water, so need to use the supplied pitcher to have a pseudo shower, which can be a challenge. No fresh fruit available for breakfast. Not suitable for business as there is no proper desk or work chair.

    The room was clean on arrival safe parking and well off main road

    Small room for a family room and only a bath. Staff were inconsistent some good some slow but polite. Seems they didnt have much enthusiasm and no sign of management. Staff levels were low resulting in poor breakfast service and rooms not getting serviced even though we asked if we would like it done. One morning breakfast was much better than the previous even though waitress appeared also to be the cook. Nice enough but priced too high for what we got. Wouldn't go back.

    The room, pub and staff were all good.

    There was only one member of staff on at breakfast and was completely over run. There was no breakfast menu.

    Located in a lovely village. Nice clean room with amazingly hot water.

    Bed had thin mattress which was hard as nails, kitchen closed too early for food on an evening at 9:30 on a Friday. Breakfast was very short staffed (with just one person trying to do everything..everything !! which affected quality, cold coffee etc. handrail on stairs should have a warning, it will hurt your fingers !

    Great hotel! One of the best I've ever stayed. Beautiful village, great stuff and great pub downstairs. Breakfast was amazing! Room looks very fine and new.

    In the middle of the night our neighbor upstairs started to walking around the room. We heard every move :(

    Staying here is like "home from home'. Due to work I often need to stay away from home, and the staff at Chequers always make you feel extremely welcome. It provides a warm and comfortable place to stay where you can relax and enjoy very good food and drink. The menu is fairly extensive for a country inn and always cooked to a very good standard. All of the rooms have recently been tastefully redecorated to a very high standard and it complements the friendly attitude of the place. Locals are always friendly and you don't feel out of place sitting in the bar having a drink. It is a great place to stay and one to be highly recommended.
