About The Highway Inn

A pet-friendly accommodation, The Highway Inn sits within a five-minute walk of River Windrush. The property, which dates back to the 15th century, exudes olde-worlde charm with its sloping floors, creaky floorboards, and exposed wooden beams.

Boasting a mix of traditional wallpaper and designer fabrics, the individually decorated bedrooms feature en-suite or private bathrooms. Other in-room amenities include LCD TV and complimentary toiletries.

The Highway Inn features an outdoor terrace that is the ideal place to soak up the sun. Guests can access a medieval courtyard and make use of the in-house meeting banquet facilities.

There’s a restaurant and traditional pub on site, and guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The menu features pub classics made from locally sourced ingredients and includes a pie of the day option.

Guests are a five-minute drive from Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens, while the scenic Witney Lakes are 15 minutes away. The beautiful Bleinheim Palace is about 25 minutes away by car.

Positive Reviews

Competent staff members

Guests are pleased with the staff members at this charming inn. From giving a warm welcome to helping meet guests’ requests, nothing is too much trouble for the dedicated staff members. Guests also point out that their hosts are quick to offer recommendations on what to see and do in the local area.

Location is spot on

The inn’s location proves to be very convenient for travellers. It is strategically situated on the main street of Burford, allowing guests to walk easily to restaurants and shopping. The location also puts guests in closeness of the area’s attractions, including the beautiful Cotswolds, which offer the perfect backdrop for walkers and hikers.

Great food

Whether it’s dinner or breakfast, the food at this inn is reported to be of excellent quality. Served in the pub restaurant, it is reportedly fresh and delicious. Options are aplenty so guests can have their pick, while the size of portions is said to be decent enough.

Negative Reviews

No parking

Guests are a bit disappointed that there’s no parking on site. Consequently, they have a difficult time parking their vehicles during their stay here, which can be a pain.

Bathroom problems

Guests complain that the bathroom fittings in some rooms are somewhat dated, and that water pressure in the showers isn’t powerful enough. Furthermore, some rooms feature a private bathroom rather than an en suite, meaning guests have to leave their room to use the facilities. This arrangement proves unpopular.

No further issues reported

So far, no further recent negative opinion has been expressed by guests about this hotel.
