This is a 3 star hotel which has had a great deal of money spent on it, the room we had was modern, spacious, comfortable and very clean. We were in one of the ground floor rooms without a view, which is rather disconcerting, but, not really a problem if you are only staying for a couple of nights, like... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hawkwell House on the weekend just gone. We were quite disappointed with our stay. Firstly, we were not in the main hotel but in the separate house up the hill which in no way was as nice as the main hotel. Our room was extremely hot, which we could not change due to the... More

Have just returned home from a 3 night stay at the Hotel. Everything was perfect for my needs as I was visiting my Husband in The Churchill Hospital 6 miles away. The staff were all wonderful, from reception , to restaurant, to bar. My room was perfect with an amazingly comfortable bed, tea and coffee making facilities. Lovely grounds too... More

We were all impressed by the hotel restaurant which was well above the average, both for an evening meal and breakfast.For the price we really had no complaints and... More

Fantastic hotel all in all. Very reasonable price, a very clean room with everything we needed and a delicious breakfast in the morning (a la carte rather than buffet). Bed was incredibly comfortable especially the pillows! Short journey into Oxford from the hotel - cab to Oxford ranged from 5 - 10 pounds each way. We didn't bother with the... More

As a group of friends meeting for a weekends annual reunion we blockbooked 8 rooms, 5 double, 1 twin and three for single occupation. All rooms were rated as spotlessly clean and comfortable. One couple could not turn down the heating, but no one else had problems. I , too, had one of the ground floor extension rooms, 112, but... More

I was recently planning our wedding in Oxford with 80+ due to stay at the Hawkwell House Hotel in Iffley. As a local resident and large client of the hotel through my former employer, and following the wedding of a friend at the hotel, I had positive expectations that the experience I would have planning the occasion would be smooth...

Thank you for your review. I would just like to clarify that this was a group bedroom booking, the wedding was held elsewhere, not at Hawkwell House. We are sorry that all your requests were not met, as discussed prior to arrival, we did have other guest requests to consider. We did our utmost to meet the guests needs and... More

We stayed in one of those ground floor rooms in the extension on the hillside. The room was underneath the stairs and we could hear every step... For some reason we only had one set of toiletries in the bathroom and one bottle of water. The modern feel (in the hotel description) probably referred to the storage rails in the... More

Our party of four stayed here during the Oxford Literary Festival. Our rooms (in the main building) were spacious and well appointed though the bathroom floor would benefit from a non-slip surface. Breakfast was good, though the tables are mostly too small to seat four people together. We had dinner on one evening which was very good. No prices are... More

Very disappointed with room 113. The hotel has been extended back into the hillside and these "ground floor" rooms are really underground. No window, a big skylight which is overlooked by the upper floors. Furnishings, comfort and cleanliness good, breakfast ok (a bit slow). A real shame that they did not warn us about the room - which really should... More

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to read that you did not like the location of your bedroom but happy you found the furnishings, comfort and cleanliness good. The stairwell outside the bedroom window has been cleared and is due to be painted soon, we have plans to lay atsroturf and landscape this whole area. More
