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

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

It's important to say this review is not about staying at Bignell Park but of a meeting / lunch experience. We arrived for an informal meeting intending to have coffee & lunch. The hotel was extremely busy with a business conference but were told that "although busy lunch would be available". When trying to order lunch we told no lunch was available because of the conference. Overheard by a member of the business having the conference they offered us lunch as there was much over. The hotel refused to allow us to have any of the lunch which was left over even though they had paid for it - policy we were told. Still looking for an answer which didn't mean we all left the hotel we asked if we could get a couple of sandwiches, bring them in, continuing to buy coffee, tea & drinks into the afternoon. No was the reply - policy!! I understand the need for policy but when things are difficult & a win win is possible then please do what's needed for customer. We as a group provide training using conference facilities - we won't use Bignell Park or recommend this venue... not because of a policy though! Collapse

3 or us stoped by for a business meeting. We coincided with a training conference for the AA but were shown into sitting room and told we could be looked after. At lunchtime we were told they couldn't cater for us. The AA guys said we could use their buffet, Hotel said "no". We said we'd pop out and get sandwiches, Hotel said "no". We were then charged £10 for 2 coffees and a couple of stale pastries, probably left over from the morning AA break. Would recommend the AA from this experience but not Bignall Park! Collapse

We stayed here for one night as my boyfriend was playing cricket very near by. We arrived late at around 9.30pm and after reading the reviews here I was expecting to be faced with a tired looking room for the £65 we paid through booking.com. I couldn't have been more wrong! The hotel is very pretty with plenty of parking and the friendly receptionist quickly checked us in. We stayed in room 23 which was on the ground floor and it was quite large with everything you could possibly need:- TV, kettle, iron, extra pillows etc. We found the room to be very quiet and comfortable, it was also very clean and modern. The carpets in the hallways smelt like they had been newly laid so I'm guessing there have been recent refurbishments going on (don't believe the reviews saying that this hotel is run down - it's not!). We enjoyed breakfast which was £10 extra each and worth every penny! There were fresh juices and tea and coffee and the full English was made to order and very tasty. We would definitely stay here again, it's just a shame we didn't get to spend some more time here relaxing. Collapse
