Stayed here Thu-Sun and found the location excellent, only 20 minutes walk into the city on the main Abingdon Road or via the Thames path. The room we had (room 5) was very close to the reception and as a result was noisy, Unfortunately, there were some idiots in room 6 opposite who got back from their partying at 4am... More

Decided to have lunch mid week in the bar/lounge. As usual we had the Steak baguette: minute steak with fried onions in a baguette with salad garnish and a glass of red wine. This never disappoints, the steak is always tasty and tender, the onions help to ensure the the baguette is moist, and the salad with it's dressing make... More

When I first walked in to reception I was pleasantly surprised and mistakenly believed this hotel might be a bit posher than I expected. The pros: a good location right on the Thames with a lovely walk into the city centre. Ample parking. Friendly, helpful front desk staff (Annick). The cons: It's nothing terrible but it clearly tries to present... More

My husband and I visited Oxford for a couple of days for the first time last week. This Hotel is in a really convenient location, just a 10 minute walk from the city centre. There is free on site parking which is a bonus as some car parks are £28.00 per day. We were able to check in early as... More

My husband, myself plus two friends stayed at Oxford Spires from the 11th to the 13th March and we are sorry that it was only for a couple of nights. The food was very lovely and a good choice on the menu for dinner - the same could also be said of breakfast. The rooms we had were spotlessly clean,... More

We had booked the Oxford Spires Four Pillars on an offer which included a three course dinner, a bottle of wine, a double room and breakfast. We had anticipated a 'carvery' meal but were pleased to find it was 'a la carte'. The food was also very tasty and nicely prepared and presented. We had scallops followed by pork belly... More

The hotel's strength is its charm, grounds, and its location (with free parking to boot). The rooms themselves are dated though with older furnishings, linens, and bathroom fixtures. Also, the walls are very thin so you hear the doors in the hallway opening and closing.
