Second stay at the Steventon
I have stayed at this hotel on two occasions, both for business purposes. Excellent location and easy to find and park. Both times I have been allocated a room in an annex type building at the rear of the hotel. The room this time was slightly tired in decor, hence not the full rating, but a good size and spotless. The only slight issue I had was the noise from the plumbing, especially from nearby rooms but was not really a major problem. I would highly recommend the food from the restaurant, I had an evening meal at the hotel that was delicious and very good value for money, and also breakfast which was fine. The staff were all very friendly and could not do enough to help. I would definitely return to this hotel when visiting this area again and might consider requesting a room within the main building to avoid the very short, but open to the elements (ie, torrential rain), walk to hotel bar/restaurant.
Me and my friend came here as a Christmas treat and catch-up and it was so perfect for purpose. Although the hotel was extremely busy and quite popular with diners, we were welcomed in and ushered to our rooms in no time at all. Our original intention was to have some drinks and a meal, but on entering our room and sitting on the bed, I was sold, and didn't want to move - the bed is soooo comfortable - and this has reminded me I wanted to ask management what make it was! Whilst there was a Christmas party happening downstairs, I was able to have a small nap and was completely unable to hear the party going on downstairs. When we finally emerged from our rooms for some drinks and some food, the bar area was well staffed, informal but aesthetically pleasing and we felt really comfortable to have a mellow chat. Once we were ready for dinner I was completely shocked. It was as though we had gone out somewhere fancy - there were duck spring rolls and a bed of angel hair noodles, for mains we had a perfectly sized Christmas dinner, and for dessert (as at by this point there was no stopping us), we decided to simply get one of everything! I loved each one, even the dessert I don't generally like. I can't wait to go back. Food, drinks, bed - what more do you need.
Stayed there for a wedding, food was amazing, staff attentive. All in all a very pleasant weekend. Rooms were large with everything from hair dryer to iron. Bathroom smelt a little musty. Half an hour from Bicester outlet village
Golden wedding anniversary
A few weeks ago we celebrated our golden wedding anniversary with friends and family at the hotel. The booking procedure was a little difficult, but once we had the organiser, Teodora in the picture it all went well. We had the Sunday buffet and the organisation,atmosphere, food and service were all excellent and the prices very reasonable. I would have no hesitation in recommending it for such an occasion.
