So me anf my boyfriend were looking for a hotel in the centre of oxford or very near. We ledt it pretty late and wanted a room for valentine's day. Anyway this hotel sounded alright, it was very close to the train station with a short walk into town, and was priced at £80 for a double en suite room.... 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.

TV signal poor. Bathroom had not been cleaned or stocked the... More

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

Stayed at this establishment with adult family. This easy to find and access hotel is handy for a visit to Oxford but we found the showers in both rooms were not working properly, cycling from scalding to cold and additionally no shampoo or shower gel was supplied. Were told it is not their policy to do so. The rooms were... More

The hotel is close to the train station, apart from this, I cannot find any good aspect of this hotel. The staircase is narrow and room smells. The attitude of the service is poor, wifi does not work, the worst is breakfast, both my girlfriend and me had terrible breakfast, so called full english breakfast is in fact just a... More

I had booked a single en-suite room online for 2 nights. On arrival was "greeted" by a particularly brusk and unfriendly woman who told me I was staying in “the annex” as that is what I had booked. I showed her my booking which did not mention an annex, to which she replied “well that is the room you have,... More

We found everything to be ideal, from the location which is easily accessible by road and is next to the train station and only a 5 minute walk from the town centre. The staff were very helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the room was very clean, tidy and with an en suite. Finally the breakfast was excellent and... More
