I happened to be at the Kite for an overnight stay when the person who posted a review "avoid at all costs" caused a stink. he was the most obnoxious guest, loud, rude and abusive not only to the manager, but fellow guests and patrons, so I think it is fair to put the record straight. As fay as I'm... More

Revisited on my annual pilgrimage to Oxford. New management and a fresh refurb - Still an excellent friendly locals pub with 5 ales and 3 ciders on draught in good condition (Cask Marque). Food menu with lots of choice at good prices (I had the mixed grill at 8.95). BT wifi worked well. Worth seeking out. Handy for boaters on... More

We stayed at the Kite Inn for one night for a concert in Oxford. We were able to park outside using a parking permit for £10 which was very helpful. The staff were all very friendly and we enjoyed a couple of drinks before checking in. We were shown up to our room and had a lovely chat with the... More

I've stayed in many guesthouses, BnBs and hotels and in all my time I have never come across such a rude and unwelcoming hotelier as the lady in charge of this place. I booked a twin room - the room was made up of a double and single bed. I returned in the wee hours after a meal with friends... More

What I liked: - very friendly staff; - comfortable and clean rooms; - hairdryer, kettle in the room; - good bar; - location not far from the train station; What I disliked: - bathroom shared with 1-2 other rooms; - no lift could cause problems for somebody;

2nd visit to this great little pub. Food drink and service was excellent on both occasions and very good value. Beer battered fish and chips with a veggie burger called garden burger all cooked fresh. Good selection of drinks at a very reasonable price. Well worth a visit

I arrived in the middle of the afternoon, my friend had booked me in for two nights having seen renovations to the bar area over a period of time, previously, and liked what he saw so thought it would be a reliable place to put me up. Anyway I arrived, and I filled in the form with my details at... More

This is a somewhat down at heel pub albeit with an excellent selection of beers. Staff are welcoming and friendly. Rooms are basic but clean, breakfast very good. Given the poor quality of hotels and guest houses in Oxford this is actually recommended although I only give it 3 stars. Convenient for the station and town and especially for the... More

I stayed here for one Sunday night, as I was involved in an event at the Said Business School, close to Oxford railway station. The inn is only a 5 minute walk, in a relatively quiet side street. From the outside it looks like what it is - an old fashioned local pub. A warm welcome and shown via the... More

A few minutes walk from the train station and the city centre, a pub below, friendly staff, large rooms and full English breakfast in the morning. What more could you ask for?! We only stayed for one night but the owner and everyone working in the pub were very friendly and easy to chat to. Our room was very clean... More
