One Night Break at The White Hart Hotel
This gift was a Christmas present from our children. As soon as we arrived at our chosen hotel we were impressed. The staff were all very pleasant and polite and could not do enough for us. The hotel was charming, well looked after and a real gem.
Food was terrific, orders were taken for us at the bar and when ready we were shown to our table, we were waited on perfectly.
Our accommodation was perfect, with the room well laid out.
Breakfast was just as good.
We really enjoyed ourselves.

Excellent place for walking/beautiful village etc
We received a Buyagift voucher for a one night break and chose the White Hart Hotel because we knew we liked Oxfordshire but had never stayed this site of Oxford before. It was fantastic from the moment we arrived. Really good value for money. Only thing we found strange is having a name on the table for breakfast and dinner already chosen for you (there are 2 dining rooms) and would have preferred to choose where we sat ourselves but apart from that (a minor niggle) we were more than happy with our experience.
On the hotel website there are some links to lovely walks and we were blessed with the weather and had a great time. Would highly recommend this hotel for a break in a sleepy village where you can just park your car and enjoy some down time - relaxing and walking - and also with great links to other places of interest such as Blenheim.

Lovely hotel, full of character!
Some friends bought us a voucher for afternoon tea but we wanted to go away so exchanged the voucher for an overnight stay and paid the difference ourselves. We stayed as a couple for one night as we wanted somewhere close to Oxford but not in the city. Dorchester on Thames was perfect, a lovely little village about 20mins from Oxford. The White Hart hotel was better than I imagined, much bigger and very welcoming. We stayed in a double room that was full of character from the beams on the ceiling to the slightly creaky floorboards! I have to comment on the bathroom as I have never stayed somewhere that has a bath that fills up in just a few mins with lovely hot water, the water pressure is fantastic! We stayed in room 2 which overlooked the road but barely any noise could be heard, lovely and quiet. There was some music in the bar during the evening but this had finished by around 11pm which was great if you wanted to get to bed at a reasonable time. The only downside for us was the breakfast, the staff were lovely but we found the coffee to be a bit stewed and perhaps a nicer touch would be to have your own cafetiere on your table rather than asking a busy waitress for a refill, especially as they are small cups. Other than that, a small buffet selection of cereals and pastries plus a cooked breakfast made to order. The toast could also do with being a bit more toasted! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back - look out for the wishing well in the reception area, it has fish in it!
