We used this hotel as a central venue to meet up with friends from the other side of the country. Booked bed, breakfast and evening meal. Was a little concerned following some poor trip advisor reports. Very pleasantly surprised. Good location, happy with room size and facilities, clean tidy and good leisure facilities. Evening meal was very good and breakfast... More

This hotel is well priced for the location and good quality of rooms. The bar, restaurant, and lobby are very nice spaces. There are however a few things that bring it down. The basic free wifi isn't fast enough so you really need to pay to get work done. Secondly the £5 room service charge is a bit of a... More

Somewhat surprised at the reviews being not so kind to this hotel. We had a great stay and throughly enjoyed our dinner with good house rose. The room comfortable clean and well positioned, yes there are long hallways (unfairly criticised by some) but it is a large hotel and it's easy to understand you may need to walk at some... More

I stayed at the hotel as part of a work event and was pleased with the overall stay. Chick in was busy upon arrival but more staff appeared to help. The room was small but clean and relatively modern. It's a bit long winded to get to some of the rooms and I can see how this would be difficult... More

We stayed here for two nights when planning our wedding, it was situated perfectly for us to visit florists/photographers/church etc, the hotel is lovely and clean and well furnished. The staff were super nice, really friendly and extraordinarily helpful! (We had forgotten our marriage license and they went above and beyond to sort out the delivery) Unfortunately we took advantage... More

The first disappointment was having to carry all luggage up the stairs as there is no lift and no-one to assist. At the age of seventy four this was not easy. The room was pleasant enough but the net curtain was dirty, with the hem detached and hanging down. When I asked at reception for another curtain, I was told... More

When I asked my friends who live in Oxford for recommendation of where to stay they suggested me "The Oxford Hotel", saying it's one of the bests there + it's a dog friendly hotel. So I guess that set my expectation to have great experience in the hotel... When I got to the hotel with four bags (I was carrying... More

Friendly staff, good food, nice small gym & pool to relax. Hotel is quite spread out. ..I'm sure my room was in another county! Quiet at night. Only downsides: 1. our conference bar did not have a wide range of drinks and the wine wasn't particularly nice. Main bar selection was better. 2. There's no lifts to some of the... More
