Overview

Originally a 17th-century coaching inn, Whately Hall Banbury is situated on the edge of the Cotswolds in the charming market town of Banbury, a 5-minute walk from Ye Olde Reindeer Inn, where Oliver Cromwell reputedly plotted the Battle of Edgehill during the English Civil War. Broughton Castle, a historic fortified manor house with a moat, gardens and an elegant great hall, is less than a 5-minute drive away.

Silverstone Circuit, home to the British Grand Prix, is 30 minutes' drive away. Oxford city centre and Bicester Village designer outlet shopping centre are less than 45 minutes' drive away, while Bletchley Park is a 50-minute drive away.

The hotel's Swift restaurant, which overlooks the gardens, is decorated with oak panelling, a fireplace and iron chandeliers. It serves a range of international dishes. There is also a bar serving drinks and light snacks.

The rooms have free Wi-Fi. Some still maintain the original period features of the coaching inn.

Just note that there is an annex building which is probably 1960's and is a tad dated but clean. So you will probably be staying there and not the building shown in the advertising.

Food was good but it was difficult to get to the restaurant for anyone with a disability due to steps. A ramp was provided but was to steep for me to get the wheelchair down and up. Room was comfortable although a bit dated. Staff were very helpful and kind.
