The Royal Oxford Hotel is an excellent choice for conference delegates, short-term tourists and visiting parents of students at Oxford University. It is extremely clean, with the fluffiest towels in England, sweet, smooth bed sheets, lots of coffee and cookies, a full (if pricey) English breakfast (presented with an Asian flair and the traditional, delicious grease), and, most impressive of...

This hotel is very close to the station, we are fairly active and got there in 3 minutes. The rooms were clean, comfortable beds and pillows (we stayed in two different rooms) with a holiday in between. Tea, coffee, chocolate, water and fruit in the room all complimentary. Close to restaurants and bars. However for £132 per night with no... More

We recently stayed for a night. Lovely bright, clean and comfortable room with great little touches I.e. fruit, water and yes making facilities. Great location, just a short stroll from everything, absolutely no need to move the car once there which was very important to us ... Parking at Staples definitely recommended! Would say shop around for breakfast though as... More

This hotel is quite pricey compared to some 3*s, but you won't find much for less in Oxford. The staff are polite and happy to give any information required. The room we had was clean and very spacious. Comfy bed and plenty of fruit/biscuit snacks. The bathroom is clean with plenty of hot water, toiletries and towels. Although it could... More

Good hotel very close to the train station. It doesn't have its own car parking but you can park in Staples car park (2 doors down) for £5 a night, which is a bargain - and very secure (they put down shutters at night so you can't leave!). Very close to the castle, shops, bars and pubs so was perfect... More

I stayed at this hotel this weekend and really enjoyed my time. Its location is great- it is a stone's throw away from the station with easy access to the city centre. It was by no means a fancy place to stay, but it was comfortable with all the facilities you need- such a hairdryer, TV, kettle, towels and wifi.... More

Dear Madam Thank you for finding the time to review your stay with us and I am very happy that you have enjoyed it. In terms of the noise issue I am very sorry that you could hear the late night street noises but being located very close to the city centre means that we are in a close proximity... More

The Royal Oxford was not fancy, but it was clean and comfortable. It was a five minute walk to the older parts of Oxford, and for that we saved hundreds of dollars on the room rate. I would stay there again.

We just wanted a single night stay in central Oxford and the Royal Oxford could accommodate us. As mentioned in other reviews, the room was extremely clean and the staff welcoming, helpful and polite. The bed was comfortable so we had a good night's sleep and a very good breakfast the following morning. Would definitely stay there again!

Have stayed here several times, but sadly, will never stay again. Can't knock the accommodation: basic but pleasant rooms, great distance from station, with decent facilities and complimentary tea/coffee/biscuits are welcome. However, WORD OF WARNING - the hotel have terrible customer service and are extremely old fashioned when it comes to dispute resolution. I changed the dates of a stay,... More

Dear Mr.Heath I was very disappointed to read the comments regarding your booking experience, especially because we invest hours training our reservation team to provide faultless service i.e. sending confirmation letter for every change in reservation. However, having investigated your reservation in detail and having spoken to the team I have found the following information. Your reservation at the hotel... More
