I stayed here for a conference and it was lovely. The rooms were very spacious and it had a very secluded atmosphere. It was close enough Oxford to walk there by the river, but it was in a very residential area. They took care of everything for the conference and provided wonderful meals and snacks. I hope to go back!

Stayed here for 2 nights and it is a lovely relaxing hotel, extremely comfortable beds, staff are very professional and friendly, breakfast very good. Nice outdoor area to sit. Iffley Lock is a short walk down the road and very pretty.

We got the impression that this hotel was really trying to give good service. Our room had very poor wifi coverage and we were immediately offered another room. Generally the rooms seem spacious and well appointed. They are also kept clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable. Food in the recently launched Iffley Blue restaurant was good. The location is...

We recently spent some nights at the Hawkwell House Hotel. The hotel is located outside the city centre, there is a 5 minute walk to the bus which takes some 10 minutes to the centre. Breakfast consists of a small buffet, and you order your English breakfast from the waiter. Lovely. When we ere there, the breakfast room was rather... More

While visiting England recently, we elected to stay at the Hawkwell House Hotel on the outskirts of Oxford in Iffley Village rather than in the city itself. This was a very good decision since Oxford in July was overrun by hordes of foreign students - there to study English. We parked our car at the hotel and used buses to... More

First impression of the hotel was it must be okay as there was a wedding party enjoying the sunny afternoon on the lawn. We booked in at reception and given a room to the back of the hotel, where we had to open a window to let some air in. I later asked if there was air con but as... More

This is, in my opinion, the best hotel for those visiting Oxford. It is slightly out of town but access is easy and there is a car park. The hotel has been up-dated to the highest standards and is situated in it’s own spacious grounds. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and quiet. The toilets in the public area were... More
