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

The best things about this place are the location and the price. It's cheap and couldn't be more central if it tried - just across the road from the bus station and right next to theatres, pubs, restaurants and bars. The room was OK - though I wouldn't recommend a romantic liaison there! - and the shower, which was en... More

An appalling hotel although situated in the very heart of Oxford near the bus station. The rooms ar small and dingy with rags for curtains and broken blinds. The double glazing units are appalling and so when the city starts cleaning up, you are going to hear everything. Of course, you are probably not asleep anyway because of the nightclub... More

The room was small and very cramped, above a nightclub and overlooking a very busy street. The curtains/blinds were faulty and the street lighting the kept room bright throughout the night. We were awake due to club and street noise till 3.30 am then were woken at 7 by a wake up call we hadn't booked!! Torture! A very basic... More
