Property Description

Our story Built in the mid-17th century, the hotel was originally called The Three Tuns Inn and is on licensing records since 1677. The inn was owned and operated by Charles Stokes, whose dream for it to become the best hostelry in town was realised when it became the centre of the Banbury social scene during the 18th century. Through its history the hotel has welcomed many high-profile guests including King James II in 1687 and Jonathan Swift, the author of Gulliver’s Travels, who stayed at the hotel in 1726 while writing his novel and even took inspiration for the main character’s name from a tombstone in the nearby churchyard. The hotel also has known links with William Shakespeare and Benjamin Franklin. The hotel was pivotal in the city’s historic secret tunnel system which linked key locations and were used by priests to escape persecutors of the Catholic faith. Following a fatal accident in the tunnels, which were accessed through a series of secret entrances, one of which could be found in the well in the hotel grounds, it is believed the ghost of Father Bernard has walked the halls of the hotel for the last 300 years. Today, guests can enjoy many of the original features and character while still benefiting from the facilities and comfort of a modern hotel.
