We arrived on Saturday the 12th of April, check in was easy.. Finding the room was a different story.. They pointed to where ALL the rooms where and said all the rooms are down the corridor, no directions or anything about what floor we were on, so wasn't easy to find, once we got into the room we noticed the...

A good location for exploring Oxford, nice clean rooms, professional staff. Breakfast was very good, would stay again and soon. Spa was worth a visit even if the pool is a little small nice sauna and steam room.

Very nice Hotel with friendly and highly efficient staffs. Food selection was great, good location, Good Leisure and spa facilities. This hotel is more suitable for business customers but still very good in meeting non-business users needs.

Excellent hotel on the outskirts of Oxford. Hotel food and accommodation very good. Small indoor pool and keep fit area. Easy bus ride to city centre, bust stops right outside and runs every 15 minutes. Modern business hotel. Bar and food good. Room and bathroom good.

Booked this hotel for my partners birthday with dinner and wine offer. Part of the reason for booking was the hotel was just outside Oxford and wanted to catch the bus into town with little fuss. Arrived at the hotel early and the room was not ready (we did arrive at 11am) so was not worried. Asked reception for bus... More

Using the Oxford Hotel at the recommendation of a friend. We went as visitors to Oxford city. The hotel is large and impersonal but the staff are welcoming. Appreciating that it is common practice to take a visitor's card details we did not appreciate the immediate £50 billing. At the end of our visit this was not cancelled but a... More

The Oxford is a lovely hotel very conveniently located for the Oxford centre via the City 6 bus service 2 mins walk from the hotel. However the general organisation lets it down a bit. Our room was not ready on arrival so we were moved to another room, which was fine but then we found that we didn't have a... More

This hotel is well located on the edge of the city, with free parking! ( It cost £10 to park for 6 hours in the city centre ) and there is a 15 minute bus service into the city just outside the hotel ( £3-30 return fare ). The hotel has a friendly atmosphere with good service in the bar... More

We first came here on a deal last year and it was great value - especially the 3 course meal. We came here last weekend and paid full price (£150 for the room.) The location is still great - I like getting the number 6 into Oxford - lovely journey and very regular buses (about every 10-15minutes). The room we... More
