A trip to Oxford arranged very hurriedly saw us staying at this very beautifully located hotel.We arrived too early to check in but the receptionist was completely un-phased and upgraded us into one of the Garden rooms. Although the weather was wet ,the grounds running down to the Thames were well manicured. Everything about our stay was first class.Well done... More

Had a works Xmas dinner the drinks are over priced but the food was extremely disappointing. The stuffing was dreadful, the turkey slices tasteless, the brussel sprouts like bullets and the sausages could be used as bollards and the potatoes minuscule. The Mellon fan was slithers not slices and a small pud completed the meagre offerings. For a hotel brand... More

Dinner at the River Room was disappointing. My colleague's entree of mussels was ordinary at best and came with a piece of bread that clearly had not risen properly and frankly had no business being on the plate. The sauce on my main course of gnocchi was flavoursome enough (if a little over salted) but the gnocchi itself was heavy... More

This is a stunning beautiful hotel set in amazing grounds. We were upgraded to one of the College Rooms - full of character! We researched the Oxford area extensively and settled on this hotel for several reasons. Firstly, we wanted to be able to relax after exploring Oxford. Secondly, many hotels in Oxford do not have or offer free parking,... More

Beautiful hotel, set in lovely grounds. Had a stunning room in the old part, more like an apartment than a hotel room. Very clean and comfortable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Had breakfast each day with lots of variety and choice, and was delicious. Swimming pool and spa added a touch of luxury. Only downside was the lack of... More

Came here following a previous night in a hotel in Oxford centre. It's about twenty mins from town, in a little village. We had a nice new room, clean and comfortable with nice products in the bathroom. There were plenty of friendly staff around to help. We enjoyed a delicious meal in the restaurant. There is a small spa room... More

Celebrated a family milestone recently at the Four Pillars on Sunday lunch. The new addition (since I was there last) of the conservatory eating area has a lovely feel and atmosphere, if a little chilly at times. The Sunday lunch was average. I had the Beef carvery and unfortunately I felt it was a little cold and missing a bit... More

I have just organised a celebration dinner for 50 people at the Four Pillars, and found the whole organisation from start to finish was made easy by the well trained and friendly staff. The food was fantastic, and well presented, and served quickly and efficiently. I would have no hesitation in recommending this venue to anyone looking to organise such... More

My wife and I spent two nights here in mid September and were quite disapointed. This hotel is more set up for corporate conferences and not really a holiday stopping point. I read with interest that it is also used for wedding receptions......perfect! But for a place to see Oxford from forget it as it is very isolated from the... More
