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.

The hotel is situated on the corner of 2 streets with rows of ordinary terraced houses, the rooms are fantastic, ours had large Sky TV, air con, fridge, microwave, plates, cutlery, glasses, underfloor heating in the bathroom. Everything worked well.

I have stayed this property, which was suggested by our meeting organisers. Frankly I would have expected more for the money I have paid. The location in Oxford is quite comfortable to walk to the center in ~15 minutes. However it is a sort of "distributed" hotel, with rooms scattered a bit around the street. The first room I was...

We chose this hotel because it was less expensive than some others we looked at. It was ok, but I wouldn't go there again. The promised breakfast in a basket never appeared. The "new" café didn't have a kitchen. There weren't helpful or knowledgeable at Reception. Our bed was comfy, the small kitchen was adequate, and everything was very clean.... More

A well located hotel just outside the most central part of Oxford. Comfortable rooms with good fixtures; a simple buffet continental breakfast and a bar. A bit expensive at peak periods for what it offers.

Stayed on a business trip. Smart--looking hotel in a quiet residential area about 10 minutes walk south of the city centre. Room was nice (an "executive suite" on first floor) - large and well furnished, with a small kitchenette, but I'd have expected as much for the cost. The 3* review is due to the very disappointing breakfast (limited to... More

The hotel is in a really good location, close enough to walk to the town but far enough away from all the noise. Upon arriving we weren't sure where to park so we went to the reception where they had some lovely smelling flowers. After we were told where to park (across the road by the coffee shop) we checked... More

Overall very nice stay. The rooms were large and it was in walking distance to the town centre. It was nice having the kitchen as we didn't have to eat out all the time. The parking was across the road on some gravel next to the cafe.

When we arrived, there was a note at the desk saying something like "if we're not here, go into the cafe next door". The cafe across the road is part of the hotel. Cafe was great for breakfast in the morning - lots of choice. The bathroom was nice and there was also another sink in the bedroom. There was... More

The hotel is in a very nice location. Quiet, residential area. We booked a suite, so the room was very spacious. Breakfast was ok. Cereals, toast,cheese, meat, the norm. I feel this could be a very nice hotel but lacked attention to detail. As this is what sets hotels apart from one another. The room was a bit worn. The... More
