Stayed for a night on a special deal, room, breakfast, dinner for 2, free wine, access to facilities. Excellent Value to be fair, however the room we were first shown was small, dirty and in need of a refurb, so we paid an extra £15.00 for an upgrade and the room was large and excellent. Pool is odd in that... More

Nice enough hotel but was kept awake by music, loudness and the bass, from a disco until gone midnight. Tried to phone reception from the room but the phone doesn't work. I called from my mobile and was offered a different room for the next night when there isn't a wedding on. There are plenty of wedding guests staying here,... More

Just spent a night here, on a special deal and thoroughly enjoyed it. However, our room was very small. Peeked into other rooms as they were being cleaned and they were a more normal size, so not all rooms are as small as the one we had. You'd certainly not want a room this size for a stay of more...

Hotel's facilities, service and position for visiting Oxford were excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive. Room clean and comfortable. They have a big car park where you can leave your car and take the park and ride bus, which is just round the corner.

I got a voucher offer from a friend to visit the ‘spa’ here for 2 treatments. I was looking forward to some luxury pampering but was disappointed with the venue and treatments. Although a very nice hotel, it was not at all luxurious. It was odd to wait in a robe right next to the glass fronted gym. The beautician... More

Arrived here 22nd August for a 2 night stop over for a family wedding, was initially given a small double room but as we arrived early thought we'd try and see if we could get a larger one. After a few minutes speaking to the girl on the front desk ( Rachael ) we were given a bigger room. As... More

Stayed 3 nights, asked for ground floor room and got one. Clean, functional, and excellent value. Staff, attentive, well presented and helpful at all times. This hotel is mainly on the foreign tourist route and everyone appeared very happy with what they had. We did not eat in the restaurant, but the buffet breakfast was one of the best we... More

We spent the weekend in this hotel, and because of the way everything worked out we were checking in quite late. Despite having a reservation we didn't appear on the hotels systems. The desk staff we're very accommodating, and although frustrating, it was sorted out in a very professional and fast manner. Once in the room we found a very... More

The hotel is obviously geared up for conferences and meetings but also provides a great base for leisure/sightseeing in and around Oxford. The number 6 bus stops less than 100 metres from the hotel and will have you in the city centre in 10 minutes or so. Parking is VERY expensive in the town centre. Although very near the A... More
