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

Recently arrived The Oxford Hotel. Extremely disappointed by our reception. First room we were given was already occupied. We were then moved to a "nearby" room which was in a different part of the hotel and involved navigating 3 flights of stairs with our cases. That room was a downgrade from the premium room we had booked. We are now... More

Buses every 15 mins or so. Very nice staff in Reception, nothing too much trouble. Cafe bar, again, excellent staff. Nice... More

Aside from being outside the downtown area it is a very nice hotel. My room was rather large (by European standards), very clean and well appointed. The bathroom is a little small. The staff was very pleasant. The bar was very lively. I had a small problem with room service (they never answered, had to go to front desk to... More

The hotel is far from the city centre but close to a bus stop for those depending on public transportation. Rooms are fairly sized, when we arrived there was a problem with the heating system and the room was very cold. However, the issue was quickly solved and we moved to another room. The hotel has a strange layout and... More

We were allocated room 174 and were told it was a bit of a maze to find the room.....he wasn't wrong!!! On arriving in the room it seemed clean and tidy. In the bathroom there were 4... More
