A splendid dinner of Thai green curry from the bar snack menu. Eaten outside in the rear garden. However, although this crucial element of Maslow's hierarchy of needs was well attended to that latest and equally essential addition to modern needs was not. Meaning, no Wi-Fi in our room!!! I popped along to the busy reception (no answer when calling... More

Visiting the hotel for a day conference, I enjoyed a first class breakfast in the restaurant for £9.99, which compared very well with prices in similar establishments I have visited. there was a large choice, and despite being a buffet, the food did not appear to have been drying out under powerful lights for a long time. Service was prompt... More

Staying here RIGHT NOW. Writing because I cannot sleep, despite a sleeping pill. Basically killing time until I can get out of here. This place is like an oven. They've built it out of a Sandstone or something. It collects the heat during the day and keeps it warm inside even if it cools off outside. There is no A/C,... More

This hotel is stuck in the 1980's. It seems little effort has been made to keep it competitive with similar hotels, as if their setting and external appearance are sufficient to warrant the high prices charged. Yes, on the outside this appears to be a lovely place. It is also kept very clean and tidy in all the main internal... More

We enjoyed a weekend break in a Chic Twin room. The hotel is approximately a 10-15 min walk into the town of Oxford which was pleasant to do,despite the mixed weather in May. It is set back from the main road, in a rural setting, complete with a view of horses grazing in the fields. The staff were very pleasant... More

This hotel is very nice and in a great location. Old and new combine to make for a quiet stay with all the modern amenities. The handicapped room we had was not easy to navigate for either the person in the wheelchair or myself. The staff was lovely and public areas very comfortable.

Myself and a group of friends recently stayed for a weekend and whilst the hotel was OK I expected more of a 4 star hotel at over £160 a night. It started badly when the receptionist was unable to find all our rooms by the booking reference, they had to search through for each person and print the check in... More

Stayed for two nights over a weekend with my wife. The hotel is in a great setting, close to the river surrounded by greenery and with a pleasant 10 to 15 min walk into Oxford going past the popular 'head of the river' pub. Rooms were clean, relatively large with a comfy bed, a good shower and a bath. Staff... More

Deciding on quick getaway, we booked the Oxford Spires because of the luxury 'Chic' room was available and a complimentary mini bar was included. We arrived to find that there was no mini bar at all!!! We complained only to be told that the 'Chic' rooms do not have a mini bar! So why do they advertise that fact? To... More
