Sturdy's Castle Country Inn, Kidlington
Very Good8.0
One night stay near Blenheim Palace
The room was clean and comfortable, although there was some black mould around the bath/shower. Great location for visiting nearby Blenheim Palace. Service was excellent. Very friendly and helpful. The pub/restaurant is charming; the food is average pub food. Overall, very good value.

Thank you, Sturdys' staff!
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food wasn't so great. Clean, attractive rooms that unfortunately smelled of smoke (to a sensitive smoke-allergic guest - my husband didn't notice it) as it permeates the carpet and curtains when folks return to their rooms having smoked just outside the door. It was rather far away from Kidlington as we didn't have a car and had to rely on the bus and taxis. But the walk from the hotel to Blenheim was very pleasant.

We Love Sturdy's!!
This is one of the most charming places we've stayed. The room was very clean and attractive. The staff was wonderful. Everyone greeted us no matter where we were on the grounds.The pub and restaurant offered a wonderful selection of excellent meals. Breakfast was a pleasant surprise with many choices. The location was perfect for traveling throughout the countryside. We were able to visit Blenheim Palace, Highclere Castle, Oxford and the Cotswolds from Sturdy's. I would highly recommend this inn if you want to have the true English experience!!
