Loved this hotel !

Booked a feature double room - it was beautiful. Really big room with seating area and four poster bed. Nespresso machine in room too which is better than the usual instant sachets! The village is very pretty with a few pubs on your doorstep. Easy parking. 5 mins walk from Blenheim which is stunning - loved my stay at this hotel and hope to go back again.
