We tried to find a cheap hotel for a short break over the bank holiday but everywhere was fully booked. Through necessity we looked and the pricier hotels which included, surprisingly, Holiday inn, Travel Lodge etc. Obviously many hotels bumped up the prices for the bank holiday weekend. Although we where avoiding the 4 and 5 star hotels we discovered... More

Stayed here for two nights as attending family function in Oxford. On arrival we booked in, reception area had rather a 'holiday inn' feel certainly not what you'd expect from a four star, we had a room away from main building, we had no complaints about the room apart from not having a shower only having a bath. We met... More

Spent one night. Room large and comfortable. Bathroom well appointed with bath and shower. Reception staff helpful and knowledgeable. Hotel is convenient to centre of town which is a pleasant 15 minute walk away along the Thames River bank. But good news ends there. Had a sandwich at the bar - supposedly egg mayonnaise with watercress - did not find... More

We only stayed one night at this hotel as part of our week touring thank goodness as that was enough. The hotel looks lovely from the outside but that's it. It took us almost 15 ms to check in, the Guest Relations Manager who attended to us was hopeless, she didn't seem to have any idea as to what to... More

Wanting to do something special and not having been to Oxford, we decided to combthe two. The hotel was an easy twenty minute walk along the river to the town centre. The room was spacious but being in the attic we found it a bit too warm, opening the window helped a bit. Bathroom looked like it had been refitted... More

The hotel was easy to get to and only 15 mins walk to the centre of Oxford. The room we had was very comfortable and in good condition. The hotel restaurant provided good breakfasts but the evening meal left a bit to be desired

I booked a 2 night break for my daughter and I through Secret Escapes, our deal included a 3 course meal, bottle of wine and bed and breakfast. I contacted the hotel prior to our arrival to request a twin room and book a table for our meal, I also requested information for some treatments. All the communication was brilliant... More

This hotel was chosen by one of our friends ,as we were trying to plan a meet up with friends and as always one of us finds the hotel and the others generally just say yes. This is a spa hotel ,although I didn't get to use it so cannot comment. On arrival the hotel and grounds looked very nice... More
