Stayed here 18/2/17. The hotel and facilities are fantastic and clearly evident that significant investment has been put into the hotel, however the hotel now need to invest in its staff. Each individual member was always very friendly and courteous but they all lacked the cohesion which makes for a great team. We received a few contradictory bits of information...

I booked this trip for myself and my boyfriend and first impressions of this hotel was good. We checked in and were recommended by the receptionist to visit the pub down the road for lunch whilst we waited for our room to be ready. The Kings arm was reasonably priced pub where we had a really enjoyable lunch. We returned...

Travelled with my family and young son, swimming pools are key to all hotel trips as the boy loves it. The De Vere was the best looking hotel with a pool in the area, it's a short drive into Oxford, it's a rural-ish area, peace, quiet, nice. £140 per night, it's a good price for the Oxford area, especially considering...
