I'm disappointed to be writing a poor review for the first time. The pictures may look lovely on the website but in reality and close up the hotel from exterior, interior, restaurant and rooms are shabby and grubby. In need of TLC and proper cleaning I'm afraid my overall impression is this place needs to be spruced up and cleaned...

Recently enjoyed some lovely company in a lovely setting! The food and the service was incredibly lovely! The interior was decorated beautifully with incredibly ambiance! We had the parfait and a leek and mushroom tart for starters! Followed by a steal and ale pie with a lovely side salad and a salmon fillet served on top of gnocchi! All in...

I booked this through a travel zoo deal for my mum and it was a reasonable rate and included an evening meal and breakfast. On arriving the receptionist was welcoming and said we had a good room... which possibly built up expectations as room 23 was anything but good. It was dreadful and I think it's the worst hotel room...

We dropped in for a drink during Thame for festival. We were greeted with immediate friendly service. Lovely hotel indoors and outdoors, nice clean toilets and helpful chatty staff. Will be back to try the food!

I remember the Spread Eagle from 30 years ago when I last stayed. The car park is at the rear of the hotel with direct access to reception. Our welcome was warm and friendly and the room we were given was bright and overlooked a small garden. The décor was eccentric and not really to our taste but the bed...

Room very comfortable and staff friendly - did meeting there and facilities good. Good good but not excellent and while for the money it is worthwhile it is a wee bit rough round the edges. Needs some finishing. A bit tatty but worth the money and a good location. I would stay there again

We stayed for one night for a wedding. Lovely location with good car parking at £3 for 24 hours. We booked one of the ''refurbished rooms'' and the reception/bar areas are nice so were suprised when we got to our room that it was well below average. The size was good but the decor, carpet and fittings in both the...

I booked a "superior" double room through Booking.com before Xmas last year for a family wedding as we were all to stay at the same hotel - we all live in different parts of the country.
