You do pay clearly the location. Hotel offers the basic service you would expect. Depending the room you have free mineral water (however, even front desk does not really know the rules). Wifi ok working. Check with chef prior to order any food (many times the food served does not correspond to the menu or is simply not available). We... More

This hotel is very well situated in Oxford, close to colleges and the Botanic Gardens, which are well worth a visit. The reception and bar area is very pleasant as the dual aspect ensures plenty of light. Parking is a little fraught - the entrance to the car park is difficult for those driving large cars. We were in the... More

This small hotel has style without giving up its historic appeal. A well-designed mixture. It is located in a small street just off High Street, thus very central. The breakfast was great. You can order warm English breakfast a la carte. The lobby is also nice. The executive double bedroom was spacious. Beware when trying to flush the toilet. If... More

The Eastgate is very conveniently placed on the High, in reach of all central Oxford. There is car parking at a price but driving in Oxford is rather anti-social and I prefer to use the excellent park-and-ride. There is a good restaurant and good accommodation, and helpful and pleasant staff. My only complaint, with the central policy, not the local... More

While the hotel is in an old building the rooms have been renovated and come with the modern conveniences you'd expect. The hotel is in a great location within walking distance of all the Oxford colleges and attractions. The staff is friendly and they provide free wifi. The hotel restaurant and bar never seemed busy, but the food and drinks... More

We stayed here for one night on a Friday. We could hear people walking around that was above us. Every time they used their taps the water dripped through our ceiling onto the floor. We complained when we checked out and they gave us the £20 back we had paid for our breakfast. It can't be helped but because the... More

Strong points include location (High Street) and courtesy of staff. The dining area is neatly designed and food is quite good. However, the single room I stayed in appears truly small and, with a large luggage, walking around the room was somehow challenging. Toilet and bath are bright and clean. The hallways leading to the rooms are narrow, which make... More
