Excellent location, near everything. Clean rooms, nice extra touches. The factor that makes this hotel stand out is the level of care and good service. Nothing was too much trouble and the reception staff particularly, went above and beyond in their assistance. Much appreciated!!

The Good: + Very Clean + Good insulation and AC units in all rooms + Relatively quiet rooms + Complementary Fruit/Biscuits/Tea/Shower Gels/etc... The Bad: - High room costs - Weird key system - Currently a lot of construction going on outside the front of the hotel - Fire Station nearby (sirens heard during night time)

We stayed at the Royal Oxford Hotel for two nights, July 19 and 20, 2015. The hotel is in an excellent location and reasonably priced. It is a short walk from both the train station and the bus station. The center of Oxford is about a 10-15 minute walk away. There are some quality restaurants nearby as well. We found... More

Stayed at this lovely hotel for just one night, my partner and I both were happy with all aspects. Staff were very helpful with what to do in Oxford and where to go to eat. Rooms were a great size and very clean as were the bathrooms. We went to the restaurant down stairs and the food was great! Would... More

The hotel is in a good location close to the railway station and only a short walk to the town centre. Obviously a fairly old building but maintained to a good standard and the room was spacious and comfortable. Note that there is no lift.

The rooms are basic, but very clean. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. The hotel was situated in the heart of Oxford, ideal for sightseeing. Be aware that there are a lot of clubs and pubs nearby, therefore chucking out time can be a bit noisy even with double glazing and air conditioning on. The noise didn't bother... More

Hotel is no more than average. Location isn't the greatest. It's near many run-down businesses on a dirty street. You have to walk that route to visit the main part of the city. Be careful with the parking. The hotel has you park in a Staples parking lot a few doors down. Although secure at night, know that the garage... More

Dear Sir/Madam I am very sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay at our hotel and it seems that the main reason was due to the unfortunate miscommunication about the opening times of the car park. Customers wishing to park at the Staples car park are informed at the check in about the opening hours and I... More

Unbelievable professional and friendly staff. Well equipped room. I had an excellent and very good value Korean meal in the restaurant. A very short walk to the center of Oxford. Complimentary fruit waters and biscuits in the room.

always stay here if I can when in Oxford - not a great number of rooms so gets booked up early for June / July dates. I like - decent shower, air con in room, comfortable generally. Be prepared for the stairs - if you struggle in hot weather ask for a first floor rather than second floor room! Only... More

Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Although there is road construction ongoing, the room was quiet and we were not disturbed by noise from outside. The room was clean and had nice amenities including fruit and water. Hotel is conveniently located near the train station.
