Having recently moved to Oxford to work I had to stay somewhere for the first two nights with my partner until my house was ready. A colleague booked this for me and I truthfully can't understand the negative reviews. The rooms was first class with an excellent modern bathroom, the breakfast was possibly the best I have ever had in... More

Booked this hotel online for a romantic weekend with girlfriend as the website suggested this was a contemporary hotel with "individually designed rooms". Upon arrival, having had a look at the reception we expected to be greeted by Basil Fawlty! The reception area is very dated. Having squeezed down the incredibly narrow corridors to our room, we could barely find... More

We recently stayed in this lovely modern hotel. The English breakfast was excellent and service was friendly and informative when needed. The room was immacculate when we arrived and cleaned thoroughly every day. All in all a very pleasant stay and defenitely will recommend to our friends on a stay to Oxford.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for a 1 nyt Valentines get away, so we could explore the centre of Oxford on the Saturday and head to Biscester Outlet on the Sunday. We went for the Galaxie hotel because of its relative central location and free parking - both were fine although the walk to the centre was (at a... More

Room was too small. Really cheap refurb - poor standard of finish. Cheap uncomfortable pillows. Couldn't turn heated towel rail off so room was far too host. A waste of energy. Only one bedside table. would not recommend.

Stayed at the Galaxie for 1 night. Was very disappointed wth the room, although it did have the four poster bed I was promised, the decor was very old fashioned. Obviously not one of the re-furbished rooms that are shown on the website. The room was too hot, found it very difficult to sleep because of this. We had a... More

“Dear Galaxie Hotel and Staff, I’m writing this as much to you as to readers of Trip Advisor as I don’t want it to appear that I’m going behind your back with my – mostly minor – criticisms of your friendly and good value establishment. (For those who don’t know, I have to say “establishment” as the Galaxie is a... More

The room on the ground floor we occupied was poorly furnished. Bedside table on one side of double bed only, mirror too high to use, carpets dirty, desk ready for tip with imitation leather peeling, none of advertised 'extra facilities' at all except a hair dryer. Noisy room, kept awake by babging cars doors and conversation.. Bizarrely designed bathroom would... More

I travel often and it doesn't have to be luxurious - I only hope that rooms are as advertised. As a business traveler, it is important that my room have internet access. I called the Galaxie hotel and asked if the rooms had internet access before I made my reservation, and I was told they do. Not all of the... More
