This quiet hotel off the beaten path was the perfect base for us while we explored Oxford. A quick 10-minute walk to the center of town was a great way to start and end our day's adventures. Everyone who worked there from the front desk to the housekeepers were super friendly and accommodating and our room was fantastic. We were... More

Upon booking this hotel, we were aware that it was basic in services and amenities but were completely shocked by the staff. Not only was there no one to be found upon check-in but our lock on our door did not work at all. When we tried to ask if someone could look into the wifi and tv malfunctions in... More

The hotel was cute expensive. however, I got what I paid for! The room is HUGE, actually it is really less of a room and more of an apartment. There is a large living room, nice large bedroom, and even a decent sized kitchen and large bath by european standards. Frankly it is more of an apartment rather than a... More

Good location for walking to the city centre. Not much parking around, but if you are planning to drive in Oxford, stay further out and get the bus, its not designed for cars. Room was nice, has a key code to get in to save logging a key about. Room had air con, microwave, cutlery, plates etc, fridge, sky TV... More

I guess for the money, one should not complain too much, but really 4 star!!!! I think not! The pictures of the hotel on their website were very flattering, I had to squint a lot to try and see where such good images were taken from! Firstly, we booked a disabled room, which they proudly advertised, including stating it had... More

This was a nice little on-street room freshly done, microwave, sink, kettle very handy. A reasonable walk into Oxford. The staff were friendly, not far from laundrette. Need to book a car space. Breakfast was nice just across the road.

Very comfortable, easy walk of central Oxford (Christ Church end) They provide microwave and kettle etc. and although there are very few statt they are friendly and helpful. You could book 2 rooms with intercommunicating doors. Good price. Warm in winter. When we had a problem with basin plug they knocked some money off the bill. I would stay again.... More

We stayed here for one night on a Living Social voucher. We were allocated a lovely room far beyond our expectations. The new Manager, Aaron, was lovely and on checkout asked us for any suggestions for improvements we might have. What a novel idea. Bed was lovely and comfortable. Parking is a problem but by good chance we arrived very... More

This small hotel was extremely comfortable and very quiet considering it is in a busy, residential area. Walking distance in to Oxford = about 15 mins - parking in the city very expensive. Breakfast, over the road at thier cafe was fine - pleasant continental or non cooked English fare.
