I stayed for one night at this very comfortable hotel. I had a large room directly opposite reception, with lovely grand windows that looked out directly at the medieval mass of Balliol College. It was a perfect location in beautiful Oxford. I have stayed at many hotels, some large and lacking in humanity, some small and cramped but friendly. This... More

This used to be my favourite place in Oxford, and I have stayed here many times. It's not possible to find a place with a better location. It's close to everything in Oxford city. But... I don't know what happened to the hotel, but it has lost some of it's charm. It's always been clean and nice, and it's always... More

Great location in the center of the city. The breakfast was very good. Very helpful and friendly staff. Our youngest was ill. The women at the front desk let us check in early and helped us get a taxi to the urgent care. Room was big and had great windows. We would stay here again.

I did not enjoy my recent stay at the Buttery Hotel in Oxford. Although the location of the hotel is quite central, the positives end there. Our room was on the top floor, and as others have noted the building has very steep stairs unsuitable for anyone with mobility issues. The room was quite stuffy and the temperature in the... More

I should temper this by saying that the front desk staff was lovely, as was the cafe help (the two are tied together by, you guessed it, a tiny staircase). The bed was not very comfortable, the mattress felt more like a futon in a college kids living room than a proper bed. The bathroom was fine, but there was... More

This was our family's favorite hotel from our recent trip to England. We had a family room at the front, but didn't have any trouble with noise. Everything was within walking distance, and the staff was very helpful.

I had forgotten how steep the stairs are going up to reception! I did manage to carry my own heavy bag up, but they will happily help with bags if you need it. I reserved a “superior double” again this time because I like having a bit of extra room. I got room 104. It’s smaller than the one I... More

The Buttery was great. Best location right in the middle of town. My room was very large and the bed was sooo comfortable. Only downside is that there is not elevator and the very small twisted stairway was not easy to get luggage up and down. Nice breakfast was included at the downstairs café. Very good.

The hotel is right on Broad Street in Oxford, in the centre of the things you're probably in the city to see. The colleges, the libraries, the pubs, and the museums are all within easy walking distance. Even the train station is a walkable distance. If you don't have a car on your journeys, this is the ideal place to... More
