A really excellent hotel in a very convenient location for sightseeing in Oxford centre. Comfortable, sparkling clean rooms and friendly staff, pleasant lounge and bar area. Breakfast if you have the all in rate very good. If you plan to drive there two warnings - parking is an exorbitant £20 per day and beware the hotel is actually in Merton... More

Great location in central oxford, but the downside of this is they felt it was reasonable to charge 20 pounds a night parking. Room was nice and big - pretty happy there. Breakfast was poor. Hash brown was like a brick because it had been overcooked and everything else was rather average.

Dear Peter Thank you for your review, I am pleased that you liked the newly refurbished bedrooms and our ideal location. We are in the city centre and having a car park on site is an added bonus, and to retain a safe and secure environment, I am afraid we do charge a small fee. We have recently changed our... More

There is a great deal of charm to enjoy at this hotel but my wife and I had a succession of bad experiences that leave us determined never to return. The major concern is that having paid a $786.00 bill in advance by using Award miles from British Airways an identical charge was made to my credit card. This matter... More

This was my first time to visit Oxford to attend the conference held at the Examination School of the Oxford University. I stayed 4 nights at this lovely old building hotel which was located in a perfect place in front of the venue. My room was alright with a very comfy bed, good air conditioner, and interesting décor. The staff... More

This hotel has everything you need without trying to be too twee. I enjoyed the staff, they were friendly and helpful. The location is perfect although some people may prefer to be closer to the station and the rooms are clean, big enough and comfortable.

Well its a nice hotel but over priced, breakfast is outstanding but again very over priced, handy to have parking but you are charged £20 per night! Some staff are clearly more helpful than others, if you want a lay in, forget it as deliveries and binmen are outside the front of the hotel from 6.30am avoid front facing rooms... More

Very central location with car parking (£20). Friendly staff who were also very helpful to us. Priviledge room was a good size and well furnished as well as being very clean. Other rooms can be very small. Breakfast was a bit of a disaster for some people one morning since they were understaffed, but it didn't affect us. Yes the... More
