Had a meeting including an overnight stay. Easy to find and accessible, good parking and efficient check in. Lunch buffet was good and dining room light and airy. Meeting room was adequate , although being near the entrance was a little noisy at times. Rooms were clean and modern. But far too hot and also the memory foam mattresses may... More

Since we returned to Germany more than 10 years ago I stayed in the hotel a couple of times. As it is away from the normal tourist places the atmosphere here is quite nice. Especially in the summer time the bar together with the terrace and garden is so nice. They have recently started to refurbish the rooms, my one... More

Stayed for one night in March, check in was quick and the receptionist was polite. Room was clean and a good size. Sky tv in the room was nice rather than free view, Complimentary tea and coffee also in room. WIFI was available throughout the hotel and never had any connectivity issues. I was initially concerned about the amount of... More

An excellent hotel in a peaceful setting just minutes from a beautiful walk along the Thames into Oxford. The staff r were very friendly and helpful, the room was peaceful and bed very comfortable. The breakfast was very clean and delicious with great choice. Will definitely return.

Stopped at Oxford for 2 nights as part of a self drive tour so my criteria was free parking, free wifi, a dining room and close by the city. Hawk well House fitted each of the criteria and we were not disappointed. Easy to find with GPS and pleasantly surprised by its "grand estate" feel. Reception was very helpful with... More

I stayed here as a large group of 60, and they managed our needs very well. We had a late check-in, and it did not take us long to all get into our rooms at all. The rooms were comfortable and clean, though slightly overheated when we were there in winter. The breakfast was very nice. It is a bit... More

Have stayed a few times and each time find something that disappoints This time - noisy room from dodgy plumbing system was very annoying Then £2:60 added to bill for Earl grey tea with breakfast despite the fact that they charge £2:60 for normal tea! Reception staff could not answer why they charge - and despite my pointing out the... More

I stayed here this March & thought it was great for the price. Good location to central Oxford for nightlife, sightseeing & shopping (5-10 mins in a taxi which cost around £8 so cheaper than parking centrally). The hotel has a nice open fire place and nice bar area. Staff are friendly & helpful, rooms are clean, tidy, nicely decorated... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend while we visited a friend. We were there for one night and the hotel matched up to all my expectations. The room was very clean, the staff were all very polite, and we really couldn't have asked for more. Breakfast was included and was delicious. Although it won't take your breath away, it's a...

Stayed here for an organised works dinner and dance. Helpful staff on arrival. Lovely room overlooking trees and grass area. Looked out of the window to see a wonderful view of a red kite directly above. Although the hotel is in a built up area once you drive into the grounds it is as though you are in the middle... More
