Hawkwell is in a good location for visiting central Oxford. In the village of Iffley, about 2 miles from the city centre, you can walk along the river into the city in about 40 minutes. It is an attractive property in its own grounds with a pleasant garden. I stayed in what I assumed was a relatively new room at... More

Having read some of the other reviews on here, I’m not sure if everyone has stayed at the same place…I’ve stayed at Hawkwell House on several occasions and I think the hotel is really lovely and great value for what you get. First off the location is great – not too far from the city centre but rural enough to... More

We booked just for the Saturday night. Received a friendly and efficient welcome. The hotel is in a quiet suburb in the South of Oxford, just a few minutes walk from a frequent direct bus into the centre so we could park and then not worry about the car. Nice twin room; very clean and tidy and the usual facilities... More

We stayed here for the easter break mainly to explore the city as we hadn't been to Oxford before. The Hawkwell House has some lovely surroundings but we were too busy exploring the city that we didn't really get a chance to have a look. The room is a good size, we stayed in one of the lower ground rooms... More

This is a very nice, good value hotel, with a superb location. Its not the Ritz I grant you, but its clean, fresh, the grounds are kept very well, staff are friendly, and if you take the time to walk down the road and get semi active you're in a lovely area with the Prince of Wales pub a great...

Decided to book a last minute night away to Oxford with my boyfriend. As we were only staying one night we decided to pay a little bit extra for the superior room. After a day out in Oxford we headed to the hotel. It was pretty straightforward to find although a parking space, less so! We arrived about 5.00pm and... More

I took my partner here for his birthday. Beautiful hotel set in lovely surroundings. The room was excellent, huge, and very clean, as was the bathroom. Set in the beautiful village of Iffley a stunning two mile walk along the Thames to Oxford. The breakfast was amazing, eggs benedict to die for!! Staff were all very friendly, couldn't do enough...

We arrived an hour and a half early so decided to ask at reception to see if our room was ready before getting our luggage out. First impressions the overall look is pleasant, i assume its recently been re decorated, very easy on the eye. We were greeted by an almost robotic, not particularly unfriendly but not warm woman, who... More

I was at this hotel for a business meeting. I had a fairly recently refurbished room, which was in a quiet wing, clean and very comfortable. The hotel had good facilities and a very pleasant restaurant. I heard from other attendees that they were not so happy with their rooms (they stayed in another part of the hotel), but mine... More
