The Oxford Hotel is not a boutique or luxury hotel, but perhaps more of a slight variation on the Holiday Inn (but better) theme. Located about 10 miles from the motorway and 2 miles from Oxford you will need your car - there is also a large green area 10 minutes walk away thus making it perfect to stretch legs... More

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights for our daughter's wedding. It is conveniently placed close to the Wolvercote roundabout on the outskirts of North Oxford and suited our purpose. We had a room some distance from the Reception on the first floor(no lifts)at the back looking over farmland with the A34 in the distance. It was a small... More

Due to its location I found it an expensive hotel, £9 for a glass of wine even on an expense account is still steep. Food on the menu was a let down, we ate out. The room was nice, the walk to get to it was a bit far. Car parking was very good and Oxford is only a short... More

Nine of us stayed at this hotel for a hen party that was centrally located for us travelling from different areas of the country. The hotel is a 5 minute taxi drive away from the city centre, and its location made our weekend hassle free. We stayed for one night with breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was...

This is a very modern hotel and seems to cater for the business customer and conferences more than leisure customers. When we tried to check in the receptionist - who did not speak very good english - told me there was no reservation. We had booked through Expedia. The Manager was called and she came back after a few minutes... More

It's ok but not outstanding. The rooms are fine but it is definitely not a good choice if you have to accommodate business people with high standards. The reception was always helpful and the service is good. The breakfast is fair. Again, everything depends on the aim of your stay there, for business reason I would choose something located in...

Although it is primarily a conference hotel that also caters to coach loads of tourists, as a private traveller it was also good. The room was quiet, clean, well furnished and with airconditioning that worked. The buffet breakfast on the first morning was a bit of a scrum as we went at peak time and the hotel was full, but...

Dear SarandRich, We do cater for every type of traveller; from the business guest to the coach tour and I am pleased that your stay. Peak time for breakfast is at around 9-9.30 and we do advise to com either earlier or later to avoid the rush, but I am pleased that this didn’t spoil your stay with us. I... More

I travelled with my mother on a promotional deal which included a 3 course dinner and afternoon tea. We both really enjoyed our stay. Room was quiet and clean. I agree with other reviews that some rooms appeared hard to find, as we did bump into people who appeared lost. If you follow the signs, as we did ,we found... More

Would stay here again due to easy access into Oxford - a bus every 15mins from around the corner for £2.10 to Magdalen Street. The hotel was lovely; as were the staff. The room was quite basic, but it was fine for one night while we were visiting Oxford. There was a good variety of food at breakfast; not the... More
