Positive Reviews

Perfect place for relaxation

The Oxenham Arms features a beautiful garden overlooking the moor, in which many guests definitely enjoyed having a lovely stroll at. In addition, guests who were looking for a nice place to relax were very glad, while some guests adored the hotel's historical and mediaeval atmosphere.

Great dishes at an equally great restaurant!

Do try the tasty Rump Steak, which guests were all raving about in their reviews online. Desserts are well-reviewed as well, stating that they are of very high standard. Thus, before dining at the restaurant, make sure to book for a table so you can be assured of a seat.

Spotlessly clean accommodations

The hotel's cleanliness and the general state of the rooms are rated five-stars by most guests. All quarters here are spotlessly clean and ware well-maintained by the efficient housekeepers on a regular basis.

Negative Reviews

Minor issues with the bathroom toiletries

Some of the guests reported that the towels they had in their bathrooms were damp and thin, while some reported that their toilet room had no tissue papers in them. These are just minor issues though, which can be easily resolved by calling the front desk.

Product & service rate may be high for some guests

Some of the guests expressed that the price for the room and even the foods served are too expensive. This is not a popular opinion though, as many still feel like the price is just fine with how meticulous attention is put to detail with every product and service.

No lift available

Handicapped guests and those with mobility issues have had difficulties in moving around in the property, as there are no lifts on-site. When you're having difficulties staying here, do not hesitate to ask a staff for assistance.
