Saw this hotel online, looked quite central & ideal for a one night stay Sun to Mon May bank hol. We turned up on speck & were able to have a room straight away for £80.00!! Bargain ..... Or so we thought. The property is nothing like the pics viewed online prior! What a shock. It's a doorway in the... More

When we arrived at the hotel we walked up to the reception on the first floor, to be greeted by nobody. The (presumably) manager was standing in his office taking a personal call, leaving us waiting for 10 minutes before another member of staff ambled over and checked us in. That would be my only complaint, the rooms were comfortable,... More

Just not really up to scratch...the hotels proximity to Oxford (about miles walk) will probably always ensure guests so I wonder whether this means that things aren't as good as they really should be. Rooms neat and tidy, although I did hear two other guests complain about a broken TV and a shower. Both our TV and shower were fine!... More

Plus - Clean. Lots of hot water. Comfortable bed. Central location, no significant problems during our stay Minus - cramped, no personality, adjacent to night club, expensive (£90 for a double - no breakfast). This hotel is not terrible but there are few redeeming qualities. We were in a back room away from the street - not noisy but you... More

In the first morning out of two, there was not hot water in any of the rooms occupied by me and my colleagues (4 overall). We couldn't do a shower but we underlined the problem, and the evening the hot water was back again. The following morning the hot water was not there anymore, so we HAD to have a... More

The website says "Bed & Breakfast", but actually they only offer accommodation. Accommodation in a scanty room, malfunctioning facilities and and hardly any services. Not that Oxford be a cheap city, but paying these rates for such a horrible place is not worth at all, regardless of its centric location. However, location itself is far from great, having music blasting... More

I have been to Oxford a couple of times and I have always stayed in environments that were not super-modern and had some historical flavor. I think this is what visitors expect from a historical city like Oxford. This hotel, at least to my opinion, is on the very low end side of what you would expect from a three-star... More

The staff were very polite and helpful, clean room and the location is excellent - right in the heart of Oxford. Though, being on a very live and busy street is not as quiet as a countryside hotel. Very good for me and my partner.

Nice place for theatre, BUT, the noise. A nightclub is attached to the hotel, you can't ignore the volume of bass sounding through the walls. 0330 (given room nearest attached) and it stopped. BUT, then the spilling out of party goers continued, shouting, screaming in front of windows. All in all, the hotel description fails to mention this. Excellent for... More
