What a fabulously different venue for a hotel (it used to be the prison in Oxford!!). It is well worth exploring - ask for a tour and go and see the prison cell they have left in it's original condition. Back to the reason we were there - down in Cell 5 for a business networking meeting. A very practical... More

Great atmosphere and design, has real wow factor when your arrive. But - I stayed when there was a corporate function on, and the music and noise from the crowd in the bar was so loud in my room sleep was impossible. Management didn't care and had no solution : ("complain to the,organisers") and refused to assist beyond dispensing the... More

A former jail that has been converted with taste, ingenuity (and money) into a wonderful boutique hotel, in the heart of the city. the thick prison walls reduce ambient sound, creating a very tranquil environment. Good service helpful staff; highly recommended. (But pricey!)

From booking to departure faultless. After I booked I emailed the hotel regarding car parking and as I wanted to arrive about 11.30 they replied almost instantly, it would be no problem to use the car park from that time. We arrived at approx 11.30 went to leave keys and bags and was checked in as our room was ready.... More

We stayed for a night in July with friends. The check in process was streamlined and the rooms are amazing and comfortable. The deepest bath ever and a fantastic huge shower. Comfortable bed and lovely restaurant downstairs with brilliant friendly service. The room and bathroom is actually 3 old prison cells that have been refurbished to one lovely room. Very... More

Our checkin was a mess, slow and confusing then they lost of bags on the transfer to the room. The C wing was like a Premier Inn not that interesting. The breakfast was good, parking expensive, location excellent - a mixed bag overall and not really worth the price.

Great stay, clean, refurbished, spacious & value for money. Staff were courteous and prompt. Centrally located and close to all amenities, great value. I loved the fact that I was in a castle and ignored the face it was also a prison.

There are very few hotels based in the centre of Oxford and this is one of the best. It used to be a prison and the old cells have been well adapted and finished to a high standard. Although I appreciated the quirkiness I did find the rooms a bit claustrophobic as there were only high small windows in the... More
