Stayed for 4 nights at Victoria House, right in the city centre. The place is rather old and this place is nothing for couples or people with demands. No elavator, tiny steep stairs, not very easy with kids. Smoking alarm went on twice while I was there. Staff is friendly. Next to the door is night club but you can't... More

I stayed here for one night mid-week as I was visiting Oxford for a course. The best thing is the location, it is very central and within easy reach of local amenities. But please do not stay here just because it is centrally located. The entrance and hallways were dirty. The staff weren't rude but they didn't make me feel... More

How can you call this a hotel !! It is more of a rooming house. Everything dirty except for sheets and towels. Decrepit and dirty bathroom. Rooms hot and very noisy as they are above a nightclub, loud noise, people screaming 'til 4 a.m. .. you definitely need ear plugs. Only redeeming feature is it's location. Staff were friendly, but...

I've rated this hotel average because it was. That's not to say anything negative, only that as a property it wasn't exceptional EXCEPT that it's right in the heart of Oxford. Three minutes' walk from the Carfax Tower, 10 minutes' walk to the Pitt Rivers Museum, 10 minutes' walk from Christ Church College and Cathedral... right in the middle of... More

Conveniently place for getting to the colleges & the centre of the city and getting away.... its right next to the Oxford Tube bus station. It's the second time I have stayed here, booked at the last minute both times. Room 22 is clean and tidy, but don't look too closely at the quilted cover. However all the other bedlinen... More

This hotel is clean, reasonably priced and is right in the heart of the city. Within walking distance of a wide range of restaurants and shops, it's a brilliant location. The rooms are clean and well kept (we had room 35 with the refurbished bathroom) and the bathroom was lovely. I'd recommend ear plugs if you want some sleep as... More

This place was awful. We only stayed here because it was a last minute trip and there was little available in the city proper with twin beds. First, the good: 1. The location is very central, close to the train and bus station and short walks to most of the attractions. 2. The day staff was nice and tried to... More

Despite most reviews for this hotel being awful, myself and my friend decided that because we wanted a central hotel we'd go ahead and book. What an error. We'd been told there was parking. We got there to find not only was there no parking (according to the staff) the nearest carpark was £25 a day. We found a park... More

On arrival at the hotel after being advised there is customer parking online we found that in fact the car park is the town car park and is £3.30 an hour! This annoyed us instantly. We then travelled back out of the city to use the park and ride (£2.00 a day). The room was fine, very tired but it... More
