We spent one night here and wished we were staying for longer. When we were arrived we were concerned about the lack of parking (as it is predominantly permit based) however when I asked the guy at reception he gave me some advice as to where to park. We were pleasantly suprised with how clean and modern the room was... More

I stayed here on Monday night last with my 16 year old son . I chose Ethos after reading tripadvisor reviews and I was very pleased with my choice . If you require the entire hotel experience ie bar , restaurant , concierge etc then don't stay here . However if you want top quality accomodation close to Oxford town... More

We have stayed at the Ethos twice, most recently November 2014. Without exception, everything about the Ethos is outstanding. It is situated in a quiet neighborhood, ideally located for walking to the city center; also there is an easy direct bus nearby. The Ethos has attractive, very comfortable rooms. Abundant breakfast amenities (including fresh milk) and snacks are provided at... More

Recently stayed at The Ethos Hotel in Oxford for a work visit. A wonderful hotel. Just 1km outside the city center so quiet and very easy to get to anywhere in Oxford in a very short period of time. Clean rooms with incredible amenities such as food, drinks which you would be charged for at any other hotel. The king... More

I arrived about 5:30 in the evening -- my company had booked the hotel. The front door was open and the lobby deserted. A phone on the reception desk had a note beside it urging me to pick up to speak to reception (!). After thrity seconds a worried voice answered and asked me to hold on for a while... More

Within walking distance to the city center. Spacious, comfortable and clean executive suites. The property was not completed and the cafeteria was not yet opened. Looking forward to returning upon completion. The staff was very friendly and helpfull. We felt like part of a neighborhood as oppposed to being in a hotel.

Really excellent choice if you want to wander Oxford - particularly if you have a car and need to park it, but want to walk about the city. Parking in Oxford can be quite a challenge. Ethos is a 10 minute walk into the city, or you can go the long way through Christ Church Meadows and watch the rowing... More

Third time to use this hotel but first time to actually review it. Received an upgrade to an Executive suite. All aspects of the hotel were beyond belief. Nothing too much trouble. The only downside if there was one, was that no night porter after 8.00pm . Very friendly stuff, charming lady in reception. Would recommend and definitely would stay... More

Great room (economy), with huge bed and equally huge telly. Underfloor heating in the bathroom with a very nice power shower. Location not bad at all, it's about 10 minute walk from the centre of Oxford. The only reason it's 'Very Good' and not 'Excellent' is that the claim to include Sky TV is not true. There was no Sky...

The accommodation had been booked for my friend & I so we had no idea what to expect... What a pleasant surprise! We had a living room with sofa bed & separate bedroom on next floor with velum windows that enabled a view of those dreaming spires 😃. The room decor was simple & stylish, just right. The kitchen furnished... More
