I didn't book this hotel - so didn't know what to expect. It is very conveniently located when travelling into Oxford but on a very busy main road. There is plenty of on site parking. I thought traffic noise might be a problem but my hotel room was very quiet. Good bus services into Oxford - quite close to the... More

Just had a two day Travelzoo break at this hotel. Despite the well documented fact that the hotel appears slightly tired and the room and bathroom could do with an update the positives are that we found the staff without exception to be excellent, the food fine and the location convenient for access to the city(15 minutes by regular local...

Nothing special about the hotel, rooms OK. The bath robe was wrapped up nicely on the bed, but when opened up was damp and fusty smelling!! The got us a new one straight away but really!! We asked for some milk for the room - 30 mins later phoned again, they had forgotten. Close to the bus stop and only... More

We were looking for an Oxford hotel that was near enough to Oxford and this appealed for its proximity to the Pear Tree Park and Ride. First impressions were that it had ample parking and the staff on our arrival at check in were friendly and efficient. We were given a room on the ground floor which was quite a... More

We stayed at the Oxford Hotel having got a great deal through Travel Zoo. The hotel is within easy reach of the M25/M40 and located a short distance from Oxford itself. Would recommend visiting Oxford by catching the No. 6 bus (from Mere Road, which is one minute's walk away). Return fare is £3.50 which is incredibly cheap when comparing... More

I definitely would not consider this a 4* hotel!!. My husband and I arrived at 10am in the morning, early I know but we had booked theatre tickets to see the matinee of Jersey Boys. Anyway while we were waiting for our friends to arrive (we had booked 2 premium double rooms), we thought we would check with reception to... More

We have just come back from the Oxford Hotel we cashed in our Tesco clubcard points, we had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. The bus stop is just over the road for the city centre which takes about 15 mins into the centre. We had a rainy day so we spend the morning in the gym and pool. The... More

The room was clean and tidy and spacious. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant very much, good presentation and tasty! The pool is small, best to go early if you want to take full advantage of any spa facility's. I thought the staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel isn't in a pretty location, but it is a good...

This is by no means a 'SPA' and to be advertised as such is a total disgrace. Imagine driving from London to be faced with a hotel leisure centre that looks at thought it dates back to the Jane Fonda Hey Day of the 1980's! Upon arrival we were given towels crispier that burnt toast and seated in an area... More

Dear J_Hallier, Thank you for the review and I am disappointed to read that your recent visit to us was not to your expectations on this occasion; the hotel is currently undergoing a multi-million pound refurbishment programme and the leisure facilities are high on the agenda. I am pleased that Louise quickly and professionally resolved the situation, and I do... More

My best friend is getting married and she decided she wanted a spa break for her hen do. Luckily, or so we thought, we found this place that allowed you to have a spa break package. However, despite selling these spa packages, they did not have enough beauticians to complete the correct amount of treatments per person. The "spa" was... More
