I arrive at 7AM by car from a 3 hour drive to go to a meeting in the city. I asked the owner or manager if I could leave my luggage - "No - leave it in the car". I asked to BUY breakfast . He didn't look welcoming. I asked at what time is breakfast - he said "... More

I have never felt less welcome in a hotel. Staff varied from surly to rude and were always distracted. Room was small, moldy and in need of a good cleaning. Very disappointed given the high price of the room. The location however is good and within walking distance of the city center.

I stayed at the Cotswold Lodge Hotel for a week, and it was probably the best week of my whole life. The hotel is gorgeous. I really appreciated the amenities, including the free bottled water. Such a small detail made a big impression. As beautiful as the setting was, it was the staff that really made it a worthwhile place... More

The check-in was easy and friendly enough with choice of dining in either the bar or 66A restaurant, The rooms are named after Oxford colleges, I stayed in Trinity... More

As a business traveller, I've been staying at the Cotswold Lodge on a regular basis for over two years now and I've been really well looked after right from my very first visit. The staff are exceptionally accommodating - nothing is too much trouble for them - and I'm always welcomed with a smile! I've stayed in several of the... More

This is a slightly strange hotel, well located in North Oxford. Rooms are comfortable but not that well maintained or sound-proofed. The atmosphere is slightly strange - a cross between a hotel/guest house and up market home for elderly people. The public rooms are well appointed and the menus appetising although I could not afford to actually eat in the... More
