Unfortunately, the room was simply not clean (I mean, not clean at all). It seems as the bed linens haven't been changed for a while and the room had this weird smell. Our room was actually a couple of blocks away from the actual hotel, in a normal apartment building (not in of itself a problem, but had very little... More

Was in the annex, the window was cracked, one of the sockets pulled out of wall with wires hanging lose dangerous, dirty shower and dirty floor of bathroom. Would have rated this as poor but rated as average because when complained was given half of the money back, breakfast was good though.

A friend and I booked a twin en suite in this clean and basic hotel that is very close to the station and only 10 minutes walk to Oxford centre (Ashmolean end). Our room was small, with a portable TV and an effective shower/toilet. We sat in the pretty garden to drink tea but didn't have breakfast. My phone often... More

This hotel was perfectly suited for my purposes of a weekend visit. The room was clean and contained all the necessary facilities for a pleasant stay. The bed was very comfortable, although a little on the small side. Breakfast was very nice and served with friendliness. I would have no hesitation in going back again.

Firstly I wanted to book one twin and one single room and was told they only had one double and two singles, no suitable twin rooms at all. Therefore, I booked three rooms at a total cost of £194. On arrival the double room turns out has a single bed also which would have been perfectly suitable, so saving me... More

I tried to book a different hotel through INFOTEL. I bet they've never stayed there. Old. Dirty. Tired furniture. Broken drawers. So plan ahead. Sad thing is the staff were really nice. Maybe they haven't taken enough money to buy a tin of paint.

I booked a double room shared bathroom. When we got there, we were told that it is located in the annex, which is a small old building across the street, down the road. But that's fine to me, coz aty least it was easy to find and only about 2-minute walk away from the hotel. My room is quite small,... More
