This is a very old inn but it is sadly down-at-heel. Good points: great location, kind and friendly staff, comfy bed, car park. Entrance through a small bar, tiny rooms up a rickety staircase. That's ok, but bits of the cladding on the walls fell off as we passed, the light fittings and window catches were wonky, no hand towel... More

Very old in. Did not room there but had a chance to have an ale outside. You really feel the purpose of this old inn. If you are taller than 5 foot 10 don't forget to bend down in the entry way in order to avoid seeing a few stars. Well worth the short walk from downtown.

Just got back from a two night stay in Oxford. Chose this place because of its location and look. Was a quirky little place, and mastering the second floor of stairs in what is an old coaching inn whilst under the influence was tricky. Room was clean, bathroom nice ( a little small but more than functional), bed comfy and... More

Stayed 2 nights at this pub June 20th. Very well located - approx 10 minutes from the centre and a stones throw away from our favourite morroccon restaurant 'Kasbah'! Very friendly staff/landlord and the room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was included in the price but we missed it both mornings due to prior commitments. The pub had its own... More

17th century coaching inn, which now finds itself on top of a busy main route into Oxford. Very welcoming once you are inside though, which includes the friendly and helpful staff…the landlord had most kindly even planned a route map for me to use the next day in order to travel to an interview! I stayed in room 5, which... More

The lights of the room were not working. We asked the service to repair it, the day put off the reparation. Finally they did not repair it in 5 days!!! The hotel was clean, but a little noise. It's well connected to the city center.

The Old Black Horse is not really a hotel, more rooms over a pub. It is in an excellent location, a few minutes walk from the city centre. It also has a car park. Hotels in Oxford that have parking tend to be very expensive or a distance out from the centre. The location and parking are therefore two big... More
