- "The bar part of the Cromwell Lodge hotel is nice and relaxed. There was a nice warm welcome at reception and my room although a little small(the downside of travelling solo) was perfectly clean and comfortable with a good powerful shower. I had opted for the bed and breakfast option during my stay and although there was a good continental breakfast on offer I opted for the full English. It was only a 15 minute walk or a short cab journey to Banbury station, perfect for my needs."
- "Having been back recently to the Three Pigeons, I can say I was more than impressed with the changes so far. I even went as far as booking into a room for a few nights to sample the new ambience to its fullest. The beer is still fantastic, the breakfast a whole lot better. The double room was fantastic - well decorated and furnished, the shower brilliant and the sleep - restful. The only real downside is that being at the Banbury crossroads, it's not the most appealing frontage. That said once parked round the back you forget where you are, with their wonderful beer garden and once inside, the outside is all but forgotten about."
- "Speedy room service, ideal as I arrived quite tired from business meetings and wanted something to eat quickly. Breakfast the next day was delicious, quite busy but staff managed well, room size was great, bed and pillows comfy, location was good to get back home with ease, I couldn’t fault it! Would therefore recommend. "
- "Wonderful comfortable room, plenty of space. Michelle was just as wonderful, making us feel totally at home from the moment we arrived. We had plans for trips to Chipping Norton, Blenheim Palace and Silverstone all of which were within a half hour drive. Our 2 nights stay at Banbury Cross allowed for some good nights sleep and good starts with their lovely breakfasts. We ended up at The Wine Vaults for some good pub food just 2 minutes away."
- "On our recent trip to visit the Oxfordshire countryside we had the pleasure of staying at The Fairlawns guest House on the outskirts of Banbury. We were appointed rooms in the buildings to the rear of the house, which offered comfortable and quiet accommodation. They had a bath, which is a must for me and it also came with an attached overhead shower - good for everyone else. We had a chance to visit some magical places throughout our trip, including Blenheim Palace, kelmscott Manor and the thought provoking Bletchley Park."
- "We had a warm and friendly welcome from Julie upon arrival at the Ashlea Guest House. We were in Banbury for a friends wedding and were recommended here, as it was easily accessible off the M40. There was good wi-fi availed, so keeping track of where various friends were through numerous internet related apps was a piece of cake and made the day of the wedding a breeze. Breakfast the following morning was excellent. Banbury itself was only a 15-20 minute walk away and made for a perfect relaxing wake up after breakfast. Well worth a visit if in the area."
- "A short hills walk into centre of town, clean, comfortable accommodation, pleasant staff, breakfast highly satisfying, despite cold weather conditions felt very warm inside the room, we thought Easington was in the country but it’s right by Banbury (not an issue, though we’d of liked more open spaces, the garden was pretty though) We’d likely return if we came to the area again."
- "If like me you travel with your dog, then this Holiday Inn in Banbury just off junction 11 on the M40 won't let you down. NIce and easy to get to, with plenty of outside space to take the dog for a walk, a carvery next door for your evening meal and easy access into Banbury itself for your days meetings. The receptionist on duty was friendly and polite, the room more than adequate for a few nights stay."
- "Yummy breakfast (Gammon Steak for dinner was exquisite), Sky Sports available, managed to watch the game on a Business trip (something that’s seemingly impossible as no accommodation has those channels usually!) Close to motorway but effective double-glazing makes that redundant, personable and friendly staff, excellent atmosphere in Bowling Green Steakhouse, recommend highly."
