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

I thought the hotel room was terribly appalling and terribly dirty, and nothing to get worse!!!! until I met the receptionists!!! They would not do eye-contact, and certainly would not help with my queries. They were rude enough to tell me to go and buy a guide at the tourist office because they did not know Oxford enough. When I... More

The hotel is located on very busy street, with a night just next to its main entrance, so the noise at night is terrible. Moreover, the standard twin room is very small. The whole building looks old and scanty, and the breakfast is served in the cafe opposite - not ideal because one has to get out of the hotel... More

+ amazing location, clean bathroom, big and comfortable beds - extremely small rooms, no place for suitcases, smell of cigarets in the rooms The location of this hotel really makes up for it's poor rooms, because it is located in the very center of everything, bus station is 3 min away, so is Ashmolean museum and all the shops and...
