The care, food and accommodation has been great. There's nothing I can fault about Banbury lodge.
Staff was brilliant, felt very supportive, my therapist helped me a lot with my anxiety which disappeared. I am walking out of Banbury Lodge in a positive state of mind. 1-1 sessions with my therapist, workshops, yoga and sound therapy were very useful.
All the therapist, support, domestic staff have all been wonderful
