I have just had a two day break in the Hawkwell House Hotel in Oxford. I booked a superior room as I wanted the additional space and the room came with a sofa and table area and the promise of "all have natural daylight" (this from the hotel themselves). Except for room 114. This superior room is in the basement... More

This hotel is overrated. The welcome was ok. In the middle of the checking they changed me to a room on the first floor, instead of the 4th on the main building. The issue is that the rooms are not soundproof and I could hear a lot of people walking or discussing sometimes. In the morning I could hear all... More

We found this hotel ok, but not brilliant. Not walking distance to central Oxford and our room had a distinctly musty smell. Breakfast area nice, especially if the weather is good. Somewhat warren like layout, but pleasant enough and no major issues.

My wife and I stayed here at the start of August. A little more expensive than others we'd seen in Oxford but it looked worth the money despite a few negative reviews. The room we were given on arrival was in the new section, or newly renovated anyway. On opening the door it was a bit of a wow factor... More

I stayed here with two friends from 11th to 13th August. We had one double and one twin room in the main building and the rooms were fantastic - so large and airy with everything you need for a comfy stay.The service was efficient but not over the top at the desk, in the bar and in the restaurant. Breakfasts... More

The hotel has a very pretty setting, in a quiet location that is also relatively central if you don't mind a short taxi ride! We stayed here on 2 occasions for training. The rooms were lovely - all slightly individual, very comfortable, large, good facilities & decent bathrooms. The facilities & service were excellent - very attentive and welcoming staff,... More

We stayed at the Hawkwell Hotel for two nights and absolutely loved it. Great rooms with loads of storage and well fitted bathrooms. We tried the Iffley Blue restaurant for dinner and enjoyed the food very much - an interesting menu at reasonable prices. Breakfast was excellent too. All the staff could not be more helpful and a taxi into... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights for his birthday. Hotel is located a couple of miles outside Oxford and is set in some beautiful grounds. Ample car parking. Staff were friendly and helpful. We settled into our room, only to find that we were joined by an army of ants! We went to reception and was immediately... More

We liked everything about this hotel...location, staff, food...except it was extremely noisy in the evening. This was because they hosted a wedding over the weekend and the folks talked loudly outside the entrance upon leaving over a 2 hour period (10pm to midnight). The staff did nothing to ask them to be quiet...just told me to email management! If you... More
