This is a really nice small hotel in a great location in central Oxford. Our room was beautiful and spacious and the hotel decor and art collection are wonderful! The hotel staff was very helpful and friendly, the only thing keeping me giving a perfect rating was the service in the restaurant during our 2 visits there for breakfast and... More

The hotel is perfectly placed in the heart of the city centre, and has the bonus of its' own on-site car park (even if it is a bit tight to negotiate!). The reception staff are extremely friendly and welcoming; and it's a nice touch to have a hotel where they still believe in taking your bags up to your room.... More

he restaurant is amazing. The dinner was so much better than I expected. The service was really nice and efficient, although the best was the food because it exceeded all my expectations. I recommend everyone to go there.

Spent another very pleasant night at this well located very comfortable hotel. Lots of character, excellent service and private parking which in Oxford is a real plus. room was in very good condition, bed comfortable. Breakfast was good. A bit pricey but well worth it.

The staff are well trained: friendly and helpful. Full marks to them. The location is excellent and, for car owners, it is a huge bonus having a car park [albeit rather hairy to get into] at the back. On first impression, the building seems stylish and well designed. Original art, like it or not, is a welcome feature on any... More

Spending three nights here on business. Booked by a local colleague and I have to thank her. The location is right in the heart of Oxford. Convenient to sights and shopping. i took a bus from Heathrow and it pretty much dropped me at the door. The staff is beyond courteous, I swear they looked me up on LinkedIn, since... More

Long drive to this hotel but the Sat Nav got me within half a mile, I phoned the hotel to ask how to find the car park, one of the main reasons I chose this hotel in the centre of Oxford. The instructions were clear and I arrived a few minutes later, be careful of the very narrow entrance to... More

Probably in the best location, right in the middle of Oxford City, opposite the Bodlean Library. We took a superior room and found it clean, tidy, comfortable and spacious. Not much more to ask for. Downstairs there is a quiet library where complementary tea/coffee is available all day to residents, you have to serve your self though. Next door is... More

The Old Bank is a real gem. It is perfectly situated in a central position - in the High Street and right in the middle of the main college district. The free car park behind the hotel is a real bonus, you enter it via a delightful cobbled street much used in the Lewis TV programme (Sat Navs use Merton... More

We booked 3 rooms for 2 nights to have a short break in Oxford. The hotel is very central with spacious rooms and really good service in all departments. Although we booked different room standards, they were clever enough to put us in rooms near each other which made it very easy for us all. We had a 6-month old... More
