We stayed here for 2 nights which were brilliant. A charming rustic little hotel in a tiny street,near to a lovely little pub which is sandwiched in a back alley between buildings. Quiet room, centrally located and from the window you can see the back of Christ Church college.

Stayed here in March for just one night. Did not want a chain type hotel so were very happy when we first arrived to see that the rooms were in little converted cottages. Charming person on reception and we were able to leave our baggage in reception earlier than the check in time. Free parking was about 8 mins away... More

Very pleasant stay, my niece and I shared a twin room. You could tell by the rickety stairs and and floors, that it was a very old building. It was quaint, very warm, and as with most old buildings there were very steep stairs, so anyone with mobility issue would need to ask for a downstairs room. Breakfast was a... More

Most unusual 'hotel', which is in fact a group of old cottages, attached to The Turf Tavern, slap bang in the middle of old Oxford. A completely individual hotel, and I suspect your room experience will depend upon which one is allocated. Ours, Room 1 was up two floors of twisting small stairs which would not be great for older... More

Bath Place is a difficult place to review. It is a perfectly charming and very sweet family run hotel in a 17th century hotel with all it's charms. I would definitely stay there again but it would be difficult to fit with a partner to fit extra suitcases etc so it is probably best for short stays. The rooms are... More

Stayed here for 2 nts with a friend. Location is perfect. As another reviewer said, if you want modern & sophistication look elsewhere, but a few small things could make things so much better, e.g. move big chairs/luggage racks etc. out of room, and make some space, stairs carpet badly needs replacing. Breakfast was perfect but dining room very jaded... More

No glass and steel chain, but old and delightfully scruffy around the edges stuffed with character make this a great place to stay if in Oxford. I was out in one of the cottages, tucked away down the cobbled alleyway; imagine the Lionel Bart,Oliver Twist muscal for atmosphere. Good comfy bed complemented with uneven floorboards and ceilings in the room,... More

Very convenient location in the heart of the Oxford many visitors come for. It will work for some but not for all. I was returning to a city I lived in for seventeen years but one for which I have limited knowledge of the hotels. From what I knew a stay here seemed like a good plan. Glad to say... More

The Bath Place Hotel reflects Oxford itself. Historic, charming, comfortable, eccentric. If you want modern hotel sophistication, look elsewhere. This enchanting jewel of a hotel, right in the middle of Oxford, will give you an experience you will never forget. My wife and I have stayed there many times down the years. Its appeal never fades. Rooms that all have... More

Have stayed here regularly for the past 7 years. Situation is perfect - right in the heart of historic Oxford. Love the hotel and staff very friendly and, by Oxford standards, not expensive. Highly recommended.
