We had a one night stay in the Buttery hotel. It is right in the centre of Oxford so we used the park and ride service as you are able to leave your car there for 24 hours or longer. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly welcome. Our room was perfectly adequate as we didn't Plan on spending... More

Booked a Saturday night at the end of October. We just wanted a central place to stay in Oxford. It was certainly central! The reception is on the first floor and the receptionist was very helpful, giving us directions and details of restaurants, she provided us with a map and circled where we needed to go. We booked a deluxe... More

This is a basic and quirky B&B/Guesthouse (I think it is misleading to call it a hotel). We had a standard twin room at the back of the hotel for our two night stay. The room was clean and the hospitality tray very welcome. There were plenty of electrical sockets. There were complimentary toiletries in the bathroom, which was also... More

iPhone and £70 cash gone AFTER paying at counter. Staff not a bit interested. Watch your belongings and keep them safe. Beautiful location, reasonably priced for location, fast efficient service. Street seating = pick-pockets paradise. Be cautious.

It is never nice when you lose personal belongings. However I do feel you are being a little harsh on The Buttery in this case. After you ordered and left the counter you came back and asked if you had left your phone at the till. The manager said he had not seen one and asked his staff if they... More

While the room was clean, it was located on the street side. The window needed to remain open about 6 inches per a posted Sign about Health and safety regulations. It was very noisy until about 230 in the morning because of the street noise....and this was on a Tuesday. The weekend would probably be even worse. The reception staff... More

I've just arrived and must say I'm not impressed. A bottle cap left in the bathroom, dust everywhere and a TV that doesn't have any reception. I've reported the problems to reception and am glad to say the room was "cleaned" again, but not dusted. On a plus note, the hotel is in the centre of the town and although... More

Oh dear I am sorry you were not totally happy with your stay. However one part did make me smile a little. we honestly do not expect you to keep the window open all night. The sign is there to explain that the blocks that only allow the window to open six inches are not to be removed for health... More

I have never stayed in a place quite like this one before. It is more of an inn or bed & breakfast than a hotel, and certainly nothing like a chain hotel. The location could not be more perfect - it is right in the center of Oxford, and you can walk to pretty much everything. There are charming pubs... More

I was booked into this hotel by the university I was visiting. Reading some of the reviews below I was quite wary. The room I was given was quite small and the furniture a little old. However, it was at the back of the hotel and very quiet. The bed was softer than I normally like but many other people... More

Two travellers, youthful teenage son and middle-aged fat dad. Twin room at the top of the hotel, overlooking Broad Street, opposite the entrance to Balliol College. Absolutely perfect location for attending conference or visiting Oxford--everything close by. Tesco and Sainsbury grocery stores about 2 minutes' walk from hotel. Room was warm when we visited; there is a portable air conditioner... More

What a great location in the center of old town. Excellent attentive staff. Very good morning breakfast. Five stars except for........ Accommodations were good. There are no elevators and you have to navigate winding stairwells, even to just get to reception. It was 44 stair steps up to our room up several winding stairwells. So do go and enjoy this...
