I only spent one night at the hotel. Booking in, was very fast, without fuss. The hotel itself was exceptionally, clean, close to shops and places to eat, bars and cafe's. Not too far to walk to town. The breakfast was excellent, the only down side being that I had very little time due to a pre arranged meeting, I... More

Galaxie Hotel is no less but a charming little hotel a few minutes' bus ride from Oxford centre, The interior of the hotel is a pleasure to the eye, and the garden no less with fish pond, sculptures and hammocks under the trees. The rooms were clean and nice in every way, beds excellent, the staff friendly and helpful. Our... More

This is a very comfortable hotel with lovely staff. I was travelling alone and was given a large, very comfortable, double room. Breakfast was excellent and served in lovely surroundings. Very close to Summer town shops, restaurants, etc, and a short bus ride into the centre of Oxford. Highly recommended.

My first impressions when I entered the reception was, a lovely welcome from the reception staff, smart and well presented place. I am disabled, with restricted mobility and the hotel had listen to my request which I had made only a few days prior to my arrival. I requested a ground floor room with space for me to move around.... More

The Galaxie has the potential to be a very good hotel however from our experience it has a long way to go. 4 star it is not. Service is minimal though it is clean. It is in a convenient location in Summertown though it is quite a long walk into the Centre of Oxford. The buffet style breakfast was Ok... More

We stayed there for our 10th wedding anniversary and had an amazing stay. We had a warm welcome from the time we arrived from the time we left. We had the large double room which was extremely clean with a very modern room. Room had tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom was stacked up with plentiful toiletries and towels.... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights in June with my family for a weekend in Oxford. The hotel was ideally situated in Summertown and was only a ten/fifteen minute walk from the town centre. The hotel provided free parking which was great as parking in Oxford can be a nightmare and very expensive. We had two of the... More

We stayed at The Galaxie for a 2 night stay in Oxford. The hotel has parking - ideal- and is situated an energetic walk from the centre. For those less energetic there is a very good bus service. The area offers good shopping and a variety of restaurants. The Patisserie opposite is worth a visit. The room we had was... More

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would consider the Galaxie again, especially if the cost is much less than better located hotels. The location was our biggest negative. It was a 30 minute walk from the main bus station (located next to the city center area). A taxi was between 4 and 8 GBP, which is what we opted for... More
