Gorgeous place
Honestly, absolutely perfect. The staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful, the room was absolutely gorgeous and really well equipped. The restaurant produced some amazing food and were more than happy to amend things for my restrictive diet. My partner was very impressed with the wine list too! We went running a couple of times and there were some great routes. The whole area was stunning.

Good 6.0
The stay was okay. Good points: nice bar and food perfectly good. Service was very good and the welcome very warm. On the other hand, I found my room very warm - it was September with average temperatures and I was surprised that there was no soap in the bathroom, which looked a bit tired.

A lot of History here.
A very pleasant one night stay in a beautiful old building. Stayed in the 'Lustleigh' room which is above the main bar, I imagine it could be rather noisy on a busy evening but it was quiet enough for us. View is across the not very busy main street. Dinner was very nice as was breakfast, currently undergoing some repair work in the main breakfast dining area but looked to be ready for completion soon. We found the mattress a little too hard but not so as too be too uncomfortable.

Spectacular Hotel!
I found the Oxenham Arms Hotel absolutely spectacular. The service was impeccable and the staff were friendly and always helpful. One couldn't ask for a better place to stay in England. A beautiful ancient hotel and well-appointed with great food and fun people. What more could one ask for? I will definitely be back back. How could I not come because I loved my room and the hotel so much!
