Reviewed yesterday via mobile Stayed at Sturdy's Castle for one night when taking part in the Blenheim Palace Triathlon. The accommodation is at the rear of the pub/restaurant. The room was spacious, clean, tidy and included complimentary tea/coffee making facilities. Sturdy's Castle is surrounded by fields so the view from the rooms is pleasant, especially on a sunny day. We didn't have dinner in the restaurant as we had already eaten when we arrived, though we did have breakfast the next morning. Breakfast was of a very good standard with a choice of English or continental. One point to note is that the hotel doesn't have cots. We were travelling with a young baby and this would have been useful. Fortunately we had brought a moses basket with us. Overall a lovely hotel and an enjoyable stay
