'The Retreat was very clean and nicely presented'
'Had a lovely weekend & hope to stay again soon we loved it!'
We booked Glebe Retreat for the weekend of my wedding based upon its positive reviews and its great location. What a shame we were made to feel uncomfortable and unwelcome at such a special and significant time.
While we were impressed with the setting and with the accommodation itself, we were extremely disappointed in the behaviour of the owners. We planned for my mother, my bridesmaids and me to get ready there on the morning of the wedding. We had told the owners at the time of booking that this was the intention, and had told them again on the day of arrival; informing them that there would be a few people (make up ladies and photographer) coming on the Saturday morning.
The owners were rude and unwelcoming throughout our stay. They upset both of the makeup artists and the photographer on their arrival, refusing to let them enter the property. The holiday property is adjacent to the main house and is not sign-posted; unfortunately a couple of people turned the wrong way on entering the gate and approached the main house, to be met with angry owners telling them off!
The most shocking thing was that the day following the wedding the owners sent a series of emails to my mother, complaining about the number of people that had come in and out of the property and complaining that the gate had been accidentally left open on one occasion. They then proceeded to arrange a face to face meeting with her, during which they reduced her to tears while they continued a two-on-one attack on her. This behaviour is nothing less than bullying, and an appalling way for someone to treat a paying guest at a holiday property.
We appreciate that it may have been inconvenient for the owners having a couple of extra cars entering their gate on the Saturday morning, however we had made sure to inform them in advance that this would be the case and had expected that they might be a little lenient for such a significant event as a wedding. This was not the case at all and in fact they did not hesitate to say that they had found our whole stay to be an inconvenience to them!
I would imagine that Glebe Retreat, with its appealing setting and proximity to Oxford, would be a lovely place for tourists to stay for a few days if they did not plan to have any interaction with the owners. However I would whole heartedly discourage anyone from planning a significant event from this property. I still cannot believe that my mother left the day after her daughter’s wedding in tears!
We had a wonderful stay! The property is very clean and a lot bigger than the photos show. The owners pay attention to small details and we were very impressed with everything that was available in the unit. You can tell they really care about you and want you to feel comfortable. Two thumbs way up! Hoping to stay there again the next time we pass through.
Just returned to the USA after a 7 night stay at 'Glebe Retreat" enjoyed every minute of my stay, the accommodation was spotlessly clean which for a seasoned traveller is a great start, well equipped with modern appliances including large flat screen TV's, peaceful to the point that i had to take the battery out of the wall clock, no traffic noise,no neighbours and stunning views from the deck.
'Glebe Retreat " was recommended to me by my wife when she was in the UK on a recent business trip, we have now booked another week in december for our family visit.
Perfect location for sightseeing, close to major motorways and rail links, great local country pubs and restaurants and country walks.
Great customer service from Emily.
NO hotels for me!! stayed for 5 nights while visiting the Oxford area on business and decided to try something different than a hotel. travelling from the USA I wanted to see more than just 4 walls in a hotel room. Glebe Retreat was just what I needed for a busy business week. Super relaxing deck to take in the absolutley stunning views of the rolling hills around oxford. all the home comforts you would wish for. beautifually clean, in fact spotless! with quality fixtures and fittings which made it feel super luxurious. wooden floors and lovely hot shower which is so hard to find in a boring hotel. TV in every room. long cosy couch to chill out on. Big plus for me was it is nice and quiet !! no street noise no hassle and as a woman travelling on my own for business I felt very safe.
Was made to feel very welcome by the owners and thoroughly recommend Glebe Retreat. Can't wait to return.
