"Although the room was a little “tired” it was spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed and spotlessly clean and well lit bathroom. The restaurant was very nice and looked as though it had recently been refurbished. The menu was varied and food well cooked. All round a very enjoyable stay and excellent value for money."

Overview

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.

We had a lovely time. The staff were very helpful and kind and the food was extremely enjoyable. The location in the pretty village of Dorchester was perfect. Only one slightly negative comment - our room was really nice and spacious, but was extremely dated - a bit of a mix of furniture, which was pretty tired-looking. If the room had a re-vamp, it would be amazing.
