Sorry to be blunt but this location does not deserve much time. The location was bad, rooms claustrophobic, beds tiny and general badly managed. The only saving point (from me rating this as terrible) was that the staff were nice. Stay somewhere else for half as much and get double the experience.

I stay in the family room (with 1 double and 2 singles) connecting to the beautiful garden. The room is very spacious and clean. The decoration is very nice, white and grey. Very relax in this hotel. Free carpark. 5-8 mins drive to oxford centre. An unforgettably nice hotel, will definitely come back.

Pretty gardens and a pleasant room. Let down by the breakfast. One waitress attentive, the other disinterested. Very limited buffet table. Location is some distance from the centre of Oxford, but Redbridge Park and Ride quite close with frequent buses into Oxford. Another minus was even though we arrived after check in time there was uncertainty whether the room was... More

I am disgusted that they think it is ok to accept a booking to then cancel if it suits them. The web site... More

We stayed at Westwood hotel for a family wedding. The hotel was located in a lovely location and the grounds were beautiful with really pretty gardens. However despite being in a lovely setting the price of the rooms are quite steep. There was a fair bit of hassle when checking in as we booked 3 rooms and reception had problems... More

Yes, the hotel in itself is fine. Our room was very spacious and had a wonderful view on the garden. But the breakfast was terrible. There is only a small buffet table, that contains only one plate (!) wih some cheese and meat for all guests together. The girl walking around and asking if we'd like coffee or tea showed... More

I recently spent a number of nights at the Westwood, on a golfing break with friends, and we all found the accommodation, food and service to be excellent. The Hotel itself is in a delightful country setting, but within easy reach of Oxford. The staff are particularly friendly, welcoming and helpful.

We were in Oxford for one evening and the next day and The Westwood fit the bill. It was out of town and a little hard to find (get a GPS ) but turned out great! We had dinner in their dining room which was very nice, romantic, And convenient. The room was adequate although a bit outdated, but was... More

The Westwood Hotel turned out to be a very quiet hotel with nice surroundings. Travelling by bus it was also easy to get to Oxford centre. The hotel bears sign of being a bit worn but it has a lovely atmosphere. The breakfast could be better though. Small amounts of food and when we asked for more, they brought only... More
