Having just watched the trip advisor programme on Channel 4 tonight and seen the damage these reviews can do I remembered that I promised to write a review for this hotel following a visit by myself, my friend and her cousin in July this year. We needed a 3 bed room and this seemed the best value. It certainly was!!... More

I have stayed here every Friday for the past 3 weeks after previously trying the premier inn and travel lodge in Oxford. This is by for the best hotel out of all 3.

Enjoyable weekend in Oxford in October 2011 with unseasonable warm weather. Hotel and rooms were clean and though the rooms were small they were adequate for a couple of nights stay. We spent the days sightseeing and the evenings out for a meal. Generally the staff were very helpful. The breakfast buffet is good, much better than I expected after... More

The hotel is pretty standard in appearance, there's a reception area with breakfast and lounge area on the ground floor with a vending machine selling chocolates, water bottles, sweets etc. The rooms themselves were clean, well lit and the bed was comfortable with good pillows. The shower was quite powerful and water hot throughout most of the day, even on... More

Bunked on the sofa bed in my friend's room for 1 night and slept comfortably. Enjoyed the breakfast though it had limited hot food. Hot sausages and eggs with muffins fit me just fine. What stood out for me was the cleverly designed bathroom. Though small, the space was well maximised with the toilet, the shower and the sink area... More
