We booked the hotel through Amazon Local. Only finding a one night option I booked that and then found I could not book the second night through Amazon. I phoned bookings and was told that I could not book the second night at the deal price due to demand. I questioned this as I had the option through Amazon of... More

I have just spent a night at The Bear in Woodstock, with my husband and sister and husband for her Birthday..From the minute we arrived the staff couldn't do enough. Our bags were carried in by PAOLA, and a warm welcome was given. A Morse tour of Oxford was booked so we had to rush booking in as we were... More

We booked a premium room and at check-in asked if it was "premium". "Yes" we were told. We hastily left our cases and moved on to the event. When we arrived back late that evening it was clear that the room was second rate. We just went to sleep. The next day we asked again and were told it was... More

We stayed at the Oxford hotel for a short two night stay. Our room was massive. Very clean with a huge very comfy bed. Bathrobes and slippers were a nice touch. The tea/coffee making facilities were excellent as were the black out curtains (we actually overslept).... The bathroom was lovely and so nice to have proper big size towels! We... More

Clean and tidy. Park up and get the bus in to town. It runs every 15 minutes from a very handy bus stop. They go on until about 11 at night. £3.50 return ! Bargain. An amazing collection of local pubs up to 20 minutes walk away..the Trout, the Plough, the Jacobs Inn and the White Hart. Type Wolvercote into... More

My Partner and I have just returned from a two night stay, luckily we were in oxford visiting friends so spent little time in the hotel, although the hotel was clean I fail to see how it has earned 4 stars, to be fair we didn't use the leisure facilities so I am unable to comment on their quality.

Positives: Blackout curtains in the room were very good and the heated towel rack in the bathroom (together with very soft towels), were great. Location is very easy to access, fitness centre and swimming pool are good and there is ample parking (free). Complimentary Wifi in the rooms is a nice touch. Breakfast is fine and breakfast staff are very... More

Reception and bar area very nice. We had the deluxe room which looked pretty standard and didnt seem much... More

This is the first time we've stayed at this hotel in Oxford. To be honest parts of it are very good, however check in was a bit of a nightmare, very slow and the queue was huge. Room was ok, a bit small but clean enough. The thing that has put us of is that there are dogs allowed here... More
