We had an enjoyable stay. We were part of a group and some experienced no water on our final day. They missed a few wake up calls, but all in all it was lovely. Their concierges were very helpful. Most things were with in walking distance.

Clean, well equipped room. Lovely venue, centre of city. Only downside is expensive valet parking, plenty of car parks nearby. Staff were fantastic, professional and really friendly. Breakfast was excellent

As usual everything was perfect. Wonderful staff, lovely room with view of the Ashmoleon. Food first class. Very sad to read comments about the hotel being too formal, it is lovely to stay somewhere that certain standards are adhered to. In the dining room it may seem a little formal however the staff are very welcoming and friendly.. It is... More

We spent two nights here in a suite in July 2014. Everything was functional. A very pleasant ambience and perfectly located (could not ask for better). I think it is expensive but location! location! location!

Very comfortable large room, attentive polite friendly staff, very good central Oxford location, high quality restaurant. Parking elsewhere by reception staff, at a significant charge! Overall quite expensive but thoroughly recommended.

Thank you for posting a review. I know the team will be delighted by your comments. In the city of Oxford accommodation is at a premium at weekends. We offer our rooms on a best available rate structure similar to an airline. The council car park which we can provide tickets for (but not guaranteed space as we do not... More

Wonderful place across the street from Ashmolean. Walk to the sights. The room was a trek but large with a snappy looking bathroom with lots of light. We begged the chambermaid for more chocolates and she complied. A bit pricey but the location can't be beat.

We enjoyed our stay here and were able to walk to all the sights easily. We had a very nice room and excellent service. The staircase is a grand showing . Try to avoid the rooms that are a long way from the center .

Thank you for posting a review. I was pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. The room you stayed in I believe was in our Worcester Wing of the hotel which boasts 40 executive bedrooms which albeit are some distance from the main body of the hotel, are spacious and contemporary in style. The staircase is indeed very beautiful and... More

We stayed for our second anniversary, and it was just superb all over. We didn't mention our anniversary to anyone apart from the concierge as they ordered a taxi for us to take us out for a meal. When we returned we had a bottle of champagne in our room and a card from the manager. This was really thoughtful... More

I'd wanted to stay here for some time so was really pleased to find a decent online deal that reduced the price to a slightly more affordable level for me and my 16yo. Perhaps it was doing the stay on the (relative!) cheap but I wasn't overly impressed by the room and the hotel itself feels quite small. The facilities... More
