This is very convenient for the centre of Oxford, but the slight downside of that is that it is quite noisy at night, so the choice is between the noise, or having to sleep with no window open. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and fresh fruit is provided daily. We had a power cut one morning for a few... More

Being on a business travel to Oxford, I very much appreciated my stay. Everything was perfect, first of all the politeness of the staff and the high quality of the service provided - wifi, the amenities in the room, the cleanliness and quietness of the venue. Moreover, the hotel is close to the railway station and at a short walk... More

The team at Royal Oxford can never do enough for you. Always helpful, always pleasant and welcoming, always smiling, they made the many visits which I made during 2013/14 a joy and was always nice to be greeted like an old friend. Love this hotel!

We were staying in Oxford on a degree weekend, which meant that there was a lot of competition for hotel rooms and restaurants. We settled on the Royal Oxford because of its price and location. It was just a couple of blocks from the bus station where our bus came in from Heathrow. After a very quick walk to the... More

The hotel is clean, surprisingly quite and the staff although not very helpful are friendly. We chose this hotel because of the location as it is very central but we had a car and this made the location very unfriendly. There is no parking close to the hotel and you will have to pay. TIP: don't stay here if you... More

Like much of this ancient town this is an old building but is well kept. I was very surprised that it only has 3 stars. I have stayed in many 4 star hotels that were no where near as good as this one. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Maria on reception particularly looked after us very well. They happily found...

My wife and I stayed five nights 7-12 September 2014 in Room 114. The hotel location is convenient to the train station, only a short 5 minute walk, but is about a 15 minute walk from the town center where most tourist sites, shopping and restaurants, are located. Our first floor room was adequate in size with the equivalent of... More

The hotel is in a great location, close to the train station and still within walking distance to the historic center of town. The room was great, large and comfortable with a nice sized bathroom as well. Everyone at the reception desk was wonderful.

We have just spent three nights here. Friendly, helpful staff. The room was spacious as was the bathroom both being spotless and well decorated. Surprisingly quiet given the location. Complimentary water, fruit and chocolates as well as ample tea, coffee and biscuits. Thoroughly recommend this hotel.
