I rarely give poor reviews but this hotel was something else. For example the bar has set prices but when you came to pay the till gave higher pirices from the restaurant - IA mumbled apology that it was being looked at. But it meant 30 or 40 people paid too much. General service was poor with queues at the... More

Stayed at the Oxford hotel for a pleasure trip to O xford and found everything to be of a high standard. In particular therestaurant staff were extremely sharp and helpful, with a welcoming reception and bar area. On the downside the hotel is large so we had many corridors to navigate beteween our room and above areas.Everything in the hotel,to... More

Breakfast was a buffet very well stocked. There was a bus stop 2 minutes from the hotel and on advice from the staff we got the bus into Oxford which was... More

Stayed for one night (March 2015). The location is approx two miles from the centre of Oxford but buses were regular and got you there quickly and cheaply. The room was comfortable and had all you needed. The staff were friendly, helpful and courteous The food and service in the restaurant was excellent and breakfast was good too.

Stayed for a weekend break for the second time in 3 months. We find the hotel is clean, friendly, good location to main roads for easy access, on a convenient bus route virtually at the end of the drive for trips into Oxford city. We didn't use the pool or gym as we ran out of time but both looked... More

OK, so it's probably stretching it a bit to call it a four star hotel, but if you've stayed in hotels in Oxford you'll know they are generally expensive and well used. This one falls into the well used category, but it's not terribly expensive and it does have pluses to balance against the minuses. On the minus side your... More

We stayed here last weekend for two nights on a prepaid break booked through Superbreak at £79.00 per night for two persons including breakfast. This was for a standard double room. As I had read some poor reviews regarding the standard rooms, I phoned the hotel and arranged an upgrade to a Premium room for an extra £15.00 per night... More

I dont think this is a 4 Star at all. The hallways are tatty, wallpaper coming off the walls. Food trays on the floor in some corridors. Huge hotel over two storeys but no lifts and a long walk with your bags if your at the far end with no offer of help from the staff at reception to bring... More

The points for improvement that you have mentioned have been read carefully and taken on board. We do hope that you will reconsider a return visit once our refurbishment is complete.
