Friday night was a hot buffet. Very disappointing small quanities offered and limited choice. Saturday night was a banquet, good meal. 2 x breakfast buffets, standard hotel breakfast. Toasting not good long queue, bread having to go through machine twice. Location good 20 mins into city centre. Bar prices over the top and service disappointing

About 50 of us visited the four pillars for a widdows lunch. The food was amazing - the roast beef was the best I have had in a long time. The staff were all professional and polite and the restaurant was clean and tidy. The drinks are a little pricey but the whole experience was very pleasant and we will... More

I've been mming and erring about whether to give this hotel 4 or 5 stars, and basically, it had to get 5! The only reason it would have got marked down slightly was because it needs a bit of modernising, but this is reflected in the price of the hotel and isn't really a problem, so I gave it 5!... More

We stayed on a secret escapes deal with another couple on a Friday night. Check in was painless, the lady did sound like she was reading from an invisible script but it was all information we wanted to hear anyway. Location was the main reason we booked this hotel and it is fab - a 15 minute walk into the... More

I was a bit dubious about staying here as a friend had had a bad experience last year. We were not in the main building which was not a problem. The room we had was absolutely fabulous. We could not have asked for anything better. The breakfast was superb on both mornings. The location of the hotel is perfect, a... More

We booked this hotel for a weekend stay. We wanted to spend a leisurely time visiting Oxford and picked this hotel as it was in a quiet area yet only a ten minute walk into The centre. We were efficiently welcomed and quickly shown our room. The accommodation was spotlessly clean both in the public areas and our bedroom. The... More

I stayed with my wife's family for a weekend break. This hotel is not pretty and has more of the style of a motel but the rooms are functional, clean and reasonably quiet; the restaurant is acceptable though you'd do better to eat in town. The bar and communal rooms are somewhat gloomy with a low ceiling. However, all that... More

We decided to stop off on the way back from the Cotswolds at Oxford, and this hotel seems to fit the bill perfectly, it is not far from the city centre and it was easy to find on the Sat Nav. It looks very grand when you drive up to the entrance to unload your bags. the service at the... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Oxford Spires and were very happy with the hotel & location. Hotel itself was comfortable with a decent sized room with the amenities you would expect. Only ate breakfast which was buffet style and perfectly acceptable, advertised at £12.95 but charged £9.95 'as we were guests'. The hotel is just off the Abingdon Road which... More
