    Very good

    Good location for getting to Oxford or Banbury. Very pleasant stay.

    Took a while to get hot water in the morning and also the drain in the bathroom sink empties very slowly. However, these were minor things and we would stay at this hotel again should we be in the area at some other date.

    Superb

    The proprietors and their staff were friendly, helpful and polite throughout our visit. The old world ambiance of the hotel added to the enjoyment of our stay. The food was good both in terms of quantity and quality. The room was "unique" in terms of it's position, large size and shape. However, it was clean an quiet and a pleasure to stay in.

    Good

    No details of room given on booking. Room was in the attic with two steep and narrow staircases and numerous steps and corners to negotiate ! Hot water took ages to arrive.

    Superb

    Relaxed atmosphere conducive to a short break. Excellent food. Friendly staff.

    Bedroom slightly dark for reading. Needed an additional table lamp. Shower facilities only an overhead.

    Exceptional

    The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The food was of a high standard and the choice of evening meals was excellent. The bar kept a varied selection of ales and the wine we chose with the evening meals was very good. The staff were very helpful and attentive and made our stay very pleasurable. The location of the Red Lion was ideally situated for our visits to Waddesdon Manor and Upton House.

    The antiquity of the place and the lovely local walks. Both Banbury and Oxford within striking distance.

    Very quaint with uneven floors and the food was pretty good too.

    Bin in the bathroom had not been emptied, yuk!

    Superb

    We liked the ambience, the service and the quaintness of the surroundings. The food was very good as were the staff throughout the hotel.

    narrow stairs and hard pillows, the stairs come with the period building but anyone slightly older than us would not have managed them to get to the bedrooms as far as we know anyway. The pillows were hard and not at all comfortable, a minor irritation.
