We visited Oxford to see the heritage/colleges etc and had a fabulous day out. The Bignell Park Hotel was an excellent choice as it was only 15 mins to Park & Ride. Sadly our short break wasn't long enough to take in Blenheim Palace or Bicester designer village - both attractions very close by. Collapse

Passing by and called in for a late lunch ... and stayed on for afternoon tea. Made to feel very welcome by all four different staff members who served us. Lunch served in the garden (thanks to a very warm sunny day). A very positive experience.

Stayed for one nt on a voucher deal......included a 25 min massage with Lyn, nice lady. Hotel needs a lot of tlc, however reception area and lounge both pleasant. The bedroom on first impression is nice, free use of safe in room, always a gd point. Room spacious and clean, but when opening window, frame and blinds need a good clean. Bathroom very tired and dated, definitely been in much better b and bs than this 3 star hotel which this is!! Staff very helpful, but no lift to rooms so not good for any mobility problems. Evening meal very good, well done chef. Breakfast v gd too. Good value for money, guess you get what you pay for........wouldnt re visit, however good location for Bicester village. Collapse
Started well, went down hill fast!

We stayed for what should have been a 2 night wowcher spa break. Now, we cannot fault the staff, food, drink, room or location at all. The staff were all hard working, the food and drink were divine. Both the room and location were absolutely beautiful. Beware! This is not a spa hotel, we were under the illusion there was a spa on site. We went downstairs and waited in the lounge as we had treatment booked in at 13.30. By 14.00 we hadn't heard anything so my wife went to ask at reception. Lin wasn't in that day but they had another lady covering, unfortunately the other lady had other clients as our booking hadn't been put in the diary. Both the spa and reception ladies were fantastic, supplying us with tea, coffee & cake whilst they tried to get to the bottom of what had happened. They eventually got hold of Lin and we arranged to have our treatment at 15.00 that day. The treatment was relaxing but perhaps we weren't in the right frame of mind as we were thinking it was a spa we'd planned to spend the whole day in there. As that unfortunately wasn't the case we couldn't do much that morning and then much afterwards in the evening. Upon returning to the room, my wife who is 23 weeks pregnant was quite upset. We decided to shower and the screen door fell off!! That was the final straw really, we decided to cut our loses and drive home rather than spending the 2nd night. As we checked out we told a lovely chap who was at the reception (didn't get his name) what had happened, he was amazing, listened and understood. He even informed us he would ask the manager to contact us the following day. We really are not complainers, we normally just do British thing of getting on with it. But as this was our only get away this year we were so disappointed that there isn't actually a spa on site and it just went down hill from there! But, like I say the staff, food, hotel & location were all amazing. Highly recommended for a short break but just beware if booking the wowcher voucher. This is not a spa hotel. Collapse
Needs a make over

This hotel needs a face lift and a revamp. Rooms old fashioned and basic. Bathroom could do with starting again. Would be nice if the windows had curtains rather than a blind. Plugs hard to find and had to boil the kettle on the floor!

We arrived late on a sunny Sunday afternoon and parked up in the sizeable car park. The walk to reception was not far and carrying our luggage was easy. First impression was good and the receptionist processed our checking in efficiently and with a smile. A gentleman who we believe was the assistant manager also greeted us, we exchanged pleasantries and proceeded to our ground floor room. The room was a substantial size, clean and tastefully modern. One thing that worries me with ground floor rooms is the lack of security if one wants air from a window but this was not a problem as the windows are of the multi-point locking type and it is possible to close the window in a latched position but slightly open to allow air in. There was ample hanging space for our clothes, the bathroom was clean and bright, had an extractor fan and everything worked, something so often not the case these days. After we settled in to our room, we took a gin and tonic each on to the terrace and relaxed after our journey, followed by a stroll around the delightful grounds. The prices are pleasingly reasonable. The lady running the bar was pleasant and efficient. We took dinner at the hotel and this was excellent and for the standard provided, not expensive. To drink, I had a glass of merlot and my wife had a sauvignon blanc, both of good quality and reasonably priced. There were plenty of other perhaps more exciting wines to choose from but as we were only going for a glass each, we kept it simple. I started with lamb koftas, which were delicious, served with pitta bread and tzatziki. My wife had garlic bread, which I felt obliged to sample, purely for research purposes of course! For my main, I had seafood linguine and was fully prepared to have to search for the seafood as is sadly so often the case. Not so on this occasion. It was prepared with a picante tomato sauce and lots of seafood including plenty of fresh mussels; excellent. My wife, a vegetarian, had mushroom risotto with truffle oil and this too was excellent. We were by then, quite full and thought we would pass on the dessert but the special on offer was bread pudding and we decided to share one. The pudding was lovely and reminiscent of a dish we often have in Spain when available called “pan de calatrava”, a dish many might describe as "to die for"! It was served with what we think was pistachio ice cream (including chopped nuts) and custard. There was also amongst the dessert options, churros with chocolate sauce. It was a tough decision for me as I simply adore churros but we had no regrets. We discovered that the chef is Portuguese so perhaps there's a link there with the “European” dishes on offer. My wife and I came away with one particular feeling about the hotel and that is the ambiance, which for us reminded us keenly of a hotel we stay in Provence in France. Everything about Bignell Park Hotel reminded us of it and in a very good way, from the decor, the natural lighting, the style of reception and the lovely, extensive grounds and gardens. We discovered that dogs are made welcome at the hotel. Although we didn’t have our dog with us, had we done so, we would have been able to eat in the bar with our dog by our side. It is extremely likely we will return at some point. Collapse
