We picked this hotel for its student-friendly prices during our weekend trip to Oxford. The staff was attentive when we checked in, giving us a map and a lot of information about taxis and buses. We found it was close to attractions (about 15 minutes) and on most bus routes. The breakfast was generous and tasty, though when we checked... More

We stayed one night in the triple bed family room. At £118 for the night including breakfast I thought this a bit pricey considering the rundown state of both the inside and outside of the place. Most impressive part was the off road parking, essential in Oxford. Sheets and bathroom seemed clean but the room itself smelt like a charity... More

I notice several other reviews refer to the 'shabby' nature of the hotel. While it is not the most modern or well-decorated hotel, and the service is somewhat perfunctory, if you know what to expect it is absolutely fine. It was pretty good value for a family room, which was clean and comfortable, the location is very convenient for central... More

very dated decor. bedroom was very shabby. breakfast was plentiful, but lacked quality. got a lot of noise in the bedroom, from the landing, stairs and the plumbing (from ensuite next door). the only saving graces for this hotel was the large car park, and the lovely 15 minute walk along the river into the town centre. wouldn't stay there...

I use a number of hotels and found this particular hotel to be very poor for a number of reasons: - my room was dirty - the staff were distinctly odd in the way they behaved and made me feel uncomfortable - the breakfast was sub standard - the decor was a through back to the 70's and probably hadn't...

Went to check into this hotel with my partner who booked a double room. He went to reception whilst I got our luggage from the car. When the man behind the desk saw me, he said are you two together. We said yes and his reply was you've only booked a single room. We explained we booked a double. He... More

Stayed there for 4 nights in a single room. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good Location only a 15 min walk to the city centre. Breakfast was good and the service from the elderly man was fantastic :-) the room and the en suite bathroom were spacious but the room could have been a little bit more cleaner. To... More

We stayed here just for one night; 5 adults, 2 rooms. Very comfortable and clean with a lovely breakfast. The walk to town took about 15 minutes, very flat and easy. Strong wifi signal in the rooms..free. I think we paid around £210 for the one night for 5 of us. Perfectly adequate with good staff.

Double room was clean with en suite, toilet could have been cleaner. very dated decor, good hot cook breakfast, fine choice of cerials, fruit juices etc. Good service at reception and at breakfast but overal it was good for one night. Toilets in the reception area were in need of a very good clean
