Book a winter warmer at the Bull at Burford

Thanks for the wonderful B&B reviews!

We love reviews. The vast majority are glowing in appreciation for the Bull and our staff, like these below, and when there is occasionally the odd little thing that we could have done better, it’s great to know and put right.

Here is a handful of our most recent reviews across Tripadvisor and Booking.com from late December and early January. If you have stayed with us recently please remember to write a review and let us know how we did.

You’re loving the old world charm and room facilities

“Good location, nice staff, parking on site, for the price it was good value overall for the location. The building is very old and has that sort of cosy, quirky character.”

“We stayed for 2 nights B&B. The hotel building is ancient and has lots of interesting features. Our bedroom was immaculate. Great shower and spacious bathroom. Good quality towels and range of toiletries. The bed was king size and comfortable. The wardrobe was large with plenty of hangers. The central heating was efficient. Breakfast was great. Extensive range of fruit salads, home made jams, cereals, cold meats, even Greek yoghurt with a honeycomb. A freshly cooked breakfast and good coffee. Couldn’t, be better.”

You’re also loving breakfast…

“Ideal location, room and facilities, breakfast excellent. Well recommended.”

“Room was very clean, comfortable bed. The breakfast was amazing, homemade muesli, huge choice of food. Staff really helpful and very knowledgeable of the area and the history of the area. The restaurant wasn’t open for meals but plenty of choice in the village”

And you’re loving our rooms

“We had a very pleasant stay at the Bull at Burford. The courtyard bedroom was warm, even though the temperature outdoors was below freezing. The four poster bed very comfortable. The en-suite bathroom looked as though it was newly refurbished. The breakfasts were enjoyable, and well presented. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would thoroughly recommend staying here.”

“Lovely hotel, very comfortable rooms with everything that you could want or need.”

5-star guests leaving 5-star reviews

This month I wanted to return the favour and take a moment to thank all the people who leave great reviews for the Bull and its restaurant, whether on Tripadvisor, Facebook or anywhere else.

I am very proud of our staff, who work very hard to make your stay at the Bull as comfortable, enjoyable and delicious as possible, so naturally it’s extremely gratifying for all of us to hear that you’ve had a great time.

In the past week, for example, we’ve had a review by ‘Inspector1’ (whose name immediately got the pulse racing) who announced on Tripadvisor that he had enjoyed “an excellent stay at The Bull” and wrote of “a pleasantly warm and well equipped room. A hearty dinner, too, followed by a substantial breakfast. A quintessentially English experience!”

Another guest from Wales wrote: “So glad we chose the Bull. Weather was not so good but room was warm, welcoming and very comfortable. Bathroom had warm towel rails with huge fluffy white towels, lovely toiletries. Meals were exceptional especially the breakfasts which had such a variety of choices, one of the best we’ve ever had.” That was nice to read as we pride ourselves on our breakfast.

“Worth the drive from Yorkshire every time”

Trudy from Birmingham commented: “Can’t recommend the hotel highly enough. Lovely old room with bathroom, excellent restaurant and friendly, helpful staff.” Trudy, I must apologise if the central heating sounded like a ‘motorbike’ at times – thanks for letting us know, we will definitely look into it!

Meanwhile, on Facebook (where we average 4.7 out of 5 in reviews) Faith Harvey recently wrote: “Our favourite place. We keep coming back here because of the amazing staff and service, as always. Worth the drive from Yorkshire every time.” We are extremely proud and pleased to have so many return guests, and many are taking advantage of our special spring offers.

Reviews like these warm the heart and also make us want to improve even more. We don’t turn a blind eye to the occasional negative comment: parking is at a premium at the rear of the hotel, as pointed out by some reviewers, but in 99% of cases this is easily overcome, either by parking on the street outside the hotel or in the free public car park a couple of hundred yards away.

Dogs welcome!

And finally this time, as a dog lover, I can confirm that we DO welcome dogs at the Bull and our charge of £10 per night for a dog to stay is relatively low compared with other hotels. Understandably, dog are not allowed in the restaurant, however we can always set our guests up to dine in our bar, which has recently undergone another transformation!

We look forward to welcoming you at the Bull – we have a number of special offers currently on for staying and eating, which you can only book direct through our website. Please take a look, get in touch with our friendly staff and hopefully you’ll be the next to leave us a 5-star review!
