I stayed here after a recommendation from a colleague. The hotel is a nice, old hotel in a nice area, 5-10 minutes walk to the center of Oxford. The rooms are fine, and the bed was very good (that's what brings the rating above average).

This hotel is ideally situated, within walking distance of Oxford centre and very near some excellent restaurants in the Jericho area. The hotel is clean , comfortable and charming, if a little dated.The breakfast was very disappointing. There was a good choice of continental breakfast items but the cooked breakfast was very ordinary for the price we paid. What made... More

Stayed here one night with a friend as I was taking my child to Oxford for a summer program. It is a charming hotel and the staff were very kind. It was a nice 15-20 min walk to Oxford. The room was nice. We had the breakfast in the morning and the croissants and coffee were very good! Good value... More

This hotel is a little dated. Would be nice if they provided bathroom minis to make it easier for guests. Also a smile would go a long way!!! One positive the water pressure in the shower was very good.

Friendly staff, clean bedrooms and pleasant looking bar. Also a convenient location and plenty of good car parking. However there is no lift and some of the internal parts look a bit like student accommodation. Our bedroom was fine but the bathroom was very small and needed an overhaul. Poor shower. The breakfast was expensive and not very good. Comfortable... More

By far the worst stay I've experienced. The bed worn and sagged in the middle, walls very thin, a horrible breakfast buffet (cheap juices, stale fruit salad, half-hearted pastry selection) - a proper breakfast will cost you extra - i.e. more than the 90 Pounds you pay for single occupancy of a double room. Without the location, this hotel would... More

Excellent location, short bus ride into town. Parking right outside the front door. Expensive at £220 B & B per night. No lift, though they did offer help with luggage. Room on first floor OK, except for the extraordinarily heavy sash windows which would not stay open, and the too-short curtains which let in the light first thing. We had... More

The hotel was just out of the city centre but not too far. Easy walking distance to city centre. Hotel staff were very friendly, the room was spacious and well appointed. Bed was comfortable. We ate both an evening meal and breakfast in the restaurant and found the meals enjoyable. Ample parking on site. Overall it did the trick!

As alumni with a young child, we wanted to stay somewhere central, but not too central. The hotel was also conveniently not too far from both of our Colleges, which appealed. Check-in and parking were quick and convenient. The hotel is a short walking distance from the centre of Oxford, if you need to go there, or from the Jericho... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cotswold Lodge is an independent 4-star hotel located in a conservation area within walking distance from Oxford’s historic city centre. Visitors are assured of a warm welcome and a highly professional level of service, whether they are popping in for a coffee, meeting someone for lunch, staying at the hotel or hosting an event. The elegant Victorian building combines period features such as bay windows, high ceilings and open fireplaces with all the facilities required by today’s business and leisure travellers, including secure wireless broadband internet access. All our guest rooms offer a good level of comfort and privacy. Our ten feature rooms are named after Oxford colleges and retain the distinctive architectural features of the original building. Restaurant 66 has a modern, fresh design and an acclaimed menu. We also have a welcoming bar, charming terraces, a spacious drawing room and a Mediterranean-style courtyard garden. The Norham Suite is the ideal venue for business meetings, private dining functions and special events such as weddings, birthdays and parties. Cotswold Lodge is one of the few hotels in Oxford where parking is not a problem. We provide complimentary parking for residents – and we are just 10 minutes’ walk or a short bus ride from the city centre, visit our image gallery. ... more   less
