Conference facilities are good - with the tea/coffee stations available at all times it's excellent (though it doesn't stop the queues when the nearest station is the smallest!). Bedrooms are comfortable for a night when on a business trip. Lunch was excellent.
Bedrooms are a long trek and out of the main hotel. The bedrooms are pretty cramped and on a course as I was, it would have been nice to have just a bit more room to spread papers around! The evening meals are good quality, but the menu isn't extensive and is overpriced.
I particularly liked the massive clock in the bathroom. and the bar was very good at 1am.
Booked Milton House hotel to be handy for Bicester the next day - we didnt arrive till late and left quite early so did not make much use of the hotel facilities - reception and main part of the hotel are lovely and nicely decorated. The annexe we were in is not attractive from the outside but the rooms were fine and quite spacious. Ideal for what we wanted. We did not use restaurant or bar or pool but all looked nice. The hotel is very geared up for conferences / events and bar was taken over by a large group but this didnt affect us really. Nice grounds too if the weather had been better,
Room we were given was in an annexe which is in another building - does involve a walk along corridor and then a little bit outside - although this is covered it was very wet when we arrived and so not ideal. There is car parking right by the annexe though so you could drive round once you have checked in - not very far at all. Hotel very geared for conferences etc so not a lot of people there apart from those with events.
A very stunning setting for a wedding and the weather was stunning!
The chap at reception when we checked in was extremely helpful and very on the ball as were the staff overseeing breakfast but the chap on the main bar was on another planet and kept getting the simplest of orders wrong and was slower than a snail at serving drinks. Was the only thing that wasn't slick at this excellent hotel.
The gentleman on reception had the perfect combination of being both professional and welcoming and this was continued throughout the rest of our short stay by the rest of the staff.
I found De Vere Milton Hill House very comfortable and quiet, the staff were very helpful and friendly without over-stepping the mark.Being a female travelling on my own I felt relaxed at the hotel. Will definitely stay here again.
Very clean, comfortable & very helpful staff - good pool area which was child friendly
Situated within a short drive to oxford making it an ideal short break for a couple with special needs children.
My trip was for a friends wedding reception when there was a foot of snow in Oxford as such the staff were very polite and helpful. The majority of the guests stayed here which was ideal. Various spacious rooms and areas were used that were all within a short walking distance. It was very luxurious, even more so since it was decorated for Christmas. The swimming pool was large but unfortunately we did not have enough time to use it.
Since the hotel was large, I had quite a walk back and forth to my room which involved going outside in the freezing weather. But it enabled us to see more of the lovely hotel and surrounding gardens.
I would not stay at this hotel again, very old, staff not particularly good, very scruffy hotel not impressed
the location and setting, the leisure facilities coffee stations
The hotel was fully booked during our stay, it also hosted three weddings over the long weekend and as a result there were no appointments available for any treatments in the health Spa which was little disappointing (booking in advance is advisable).
It bought back many memories for me as both my Mother and Father were employed there when I was a youngster, when the premises belonged to Esso Research Ltd. My father was employed as an engineer from 1946 until his retirement and my Mother as a housekeeper/seamstress in the main house (used for corporate functions, lectures, etc) The house has hardly altered at all, and it was especially nice to see the Italian Garden just as it was. We walked briefly around the gardens, half expecting to see my Mum appear. Unfortunately, we were up to interre her ashes in the family grave, as she died the day after her 94th birthday in February. My Dad died in 1997 Thank you for the experience! Graham & Roz Looker, Newquay, Cornwall
We only stayed one night as we were visiting family in hospital in Oxford so it was just a base, it looked a lovely hotel, would have liked to have stayed longer to look around.There was a wedding going on and it looked lovely, breakfast was okay, would have liked to haved stayed in the main part of the hotel, so depending on the rates when we come down from yorkshire, we will most likely book again.
Just the staying in the out building of the hotel.
Dissapointed with the outside appearance of the garden annex not in keeping with the main house at all looks more like a 1970s motel, we were at least lucky to have a garden view, had we been overlooking the car park i would have checked out.Also our top floor room had an extractor or ventilator nearby which ran until 12.30am not ideal for a restful nights sleep.
The price. The location.
Lower price shouldnt result in a lower quality in customer service. I delt with four members of your staff and three were either short, uncoperative or in one case, slightly rude and abrupt (checking in member of staff). Unessersaruy really when it makes no difference to them to just smile rather than sulk.
