Great for Oxford small hotel ...among the guest houses of Oxford this does seem more like a hotel with a good sized breakfast room, separate small room with small counter that looked like it could be a bar, and a separate small sitting room with sofas and plugs so you could potentially sit somewhere other than you room. Hotel was... More

Total rip off, paid over £100 pounds to stay in a room where the TV didn't work and shower didn't work. When asked to change rooms or to fix either issue the staff replied it wasn't their issue. Terrible service, bad rooms and a total waste of money.

This is an excellent hotel to explore Oxford. The rooms are a similar size to the big sensibly priced multiple roomed hotels, have the kettle, hair dryer, trouser press, toiletries etc, but in a family run hotel with a family atmosphere. The breakfasts were made to order, and personal preferences were catered for, hubby only wanted toast, I like scrambled... More

We were greeted cordially by the manager and given our key. We made our own way upstairs to our room which needed redecorating as it looked tired, although very clean to be fair. We were at the front facing a main road but the double glazing helped shut noise out. At breakfast, we ordered a full English and were invited... More

We stayed here for a night during a trip to Oxford. Great value for money. Easy to get a bus into the city centre. Service was friendly and the full English breakfast was great!! In fact we had stayed at the crazy bear the night before and at four times the price the service here was of a much better... More

We had a lovely stay at this quirky little hotel. We had the warmest welcome ever by the proprietor who was very helpful with walks etc. Just outside Oxford so ideal location. Bus stop outside hotel if you need & it's a No 3 bus which takes about 5 minutes to go into Oxford. We walked a lot which took... More

The staff were very helpful but they charge extra for a four poster bed room when the décor is dark and messy and the mattress was like a plank of wood. I awoke with backache which only a long soak in the bath resolved slightly. The shower was less than effective.

My advice, check and double check then get confirmation in writing. I booked by 'phone a couple of weeks before our trip, when we arrived we were casually informed that there was'a problem' as we had been double booked and 'it would be unfair on the other people to take their room' - even though our booking preceded theirs. I... More
