The White Hart Hotel is a former coaching inn set in Dorchester-on-Thames -- a traditional riverside village with a Norman abbey; it was a filming location for "Midsomer Murders".

Set within a row of quaint buildings, the timber-and-brick property is a 25-minute drive from Oxford's historic city centre and the market town of Henley-on-Thames, known for its bridge and rowing heritage.

The Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with over 300 square miles of "handsome countryside [with] forested chalk hills... and deep valleys interrupted by easy, rolling farmland" (Rough Guides), is 10 minutes' drive away.

Blenheim Palace, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the finest Baroque houses in the country, is 30 minutes' drive from the hotel, while Warwick Castle and the British Motor Museum are both around an hour's drive away. Bletchley Park -- the top-secret home of British codebreakers during World War II -- is a little over an hour's drive away.

Highlights at the property include a wood-beamed bar with a log fire, and a dramatic vaulted ceiling in the restaurant. Wi-Fi is free.

Sean, the manager, and his staff are really friendly and look after you well. The hotel is very attractive and the bedrooms spacious and comfortable. Good selection for both breakfast and dinner.

Though located on the main road thru the village it is quite enough during the night. The village itself is away from major traffic routes.

We had a really lovely time at this hotel.We enjoyed the food,the bar area and our room was very comfortable.The location is good,there is a co-op across the road if you need anything.The manager Sean is so welcoming and we saw him being the same with everyone who he talked to,locals and guests alike.All the staff are very efficient and helpful.One of the lights wasn't working in the bathroom so Sean came and fitted a new one ,we also said the fan didn't seem to be working either!When we returned to the room later a brand new fan had been installed.We would recommend this hotel to anyone .
