Just spent 3 days at the Galaxie in a room overlooking the garden (so no road noise). I would recommend the hotel to anyone wishing to use it to visit the center of Oxford (5-10 mins on the bus which stops outside). The receptionist, Joyce, was extremely welcoming and helped me with any request. The hotel is decorated to a... More

I booked into this hotel last minute for a conference at the University and was very impressed with every aspect of it. The staff are probably the friendliest and most helpful I've ever come across and I travel a lot. The room and en suite were spacious and immaculately clean with free wifi and the free breakfast had everything you... More

I feel little embarrassed giving this 4 "stars" instead of 5....bear with me. Situated on the Banbury Rd, the B&B is situated in a thriving community, which offers a good choice of shops and restaurants. Parking is easy and plentiful. Reception is very friendly and helpful. I was given room 202 (which is mahoosive), so again a tick in the... More

Booked hotel for the night before hospital visit at 7 am next day. Amazing welcome. Rosie could not have been more attentive and helpful. Even offered special arrangements for an early breakfast as we would have to leave too early for normal service. Unfortunately we did not have enough time for this. Lots of extras in the room we did... More

I found this a very nice hotel from the moment I entered to the moment I left. It is very clean and decorated in a modern style. The room itself was very clean and well appointed. However as it was on the front of the hotel, adjacent to the main road, it was very noisy if you are not used... More

the hotel is situated about 20 minutes by bus from the city, but the bus stops in front of the hotel every 5 minutes ( bus 2). It costs 3,50 pounds return by person. In the neighbourhood lots of restaurants and a wine bar. The rom is a bit small, but everything you need is available. Small bed. No mini... More

My sister & I booked a twin room - not unusual - but the manager insisted the room rate advertised on the web did not apply if 2 people occupied the room and she tried to charge us 30 pounds more per night! On top of her rude & hostile manner, the twin beds were very narrow, very hard &... More

We stayed at the Galaxie after an awful experience at a nearby Guest house ( If it can be called that). Staff here were welcoming and gave us rooms long before check in time. Rooms were clean and well stocked. The hotel has been going through refurbishment over a period of time. Breakfast was amazing. Served in a conservatory. Any... More

We asked for a quiet room as I was working in Oxford for a few days and were given a room at the back by the car park. There was of course noise early and late from car park users but at least no constant traffic noise from the Banbury Road. Great that you can park at the hotel as... More

I've stayed here a bunch of times and the only bad thing I have to say is that they book up fast, so make your reservations early, especially in graduation season. The hotel staff are great, the rooms are comfortable, and the breakfast is great. For those staying a while, the kitchen is a wonderful addition as you can purchase... More
