Don't know if the chef was having an off day, but the food was badly cooked and overpriced, the pigeon starter possibly the smallest sliver of pigeon I have ever seen, was tough and over cooked there was gristle in it so obviously had not been prepared properly, the asparagus was soft however the quail egg was perfect except it...

Had a lovely stay in August and couldn’t recommend this hotel more. The reception was friendly and whisked us away to our lovely room. I couldn’t fault it! Enjoyed a swim at the leisure centre and took a short walk with a lovely view of the river. Dinner was fantastic with great chef specials over both nights and a lovely... More

Stayed here in August for a quiet weekend away and was delighted with the hotel! Room was beautiful, and spotlessly clean. View over the grounds and river were spectacular - an unexpected bonus. Was very impressed with both the reception and general hotel staff who made our stay easy and hassle free. Everyone was cheerful and polite, so the hotel... More

We stayed here in August for a wedding. As a wedding location, the grounds were beautiful, but as a hotel, I wish we would have stayed at the Premier Inn. We didn't have a problem with check-in, which was nice because there was a big group of us, and everything was lovely until we got to our room. We stayed... More

Quite frankly we were disgusted with this hotel! We booked a week and requested flowers/wine/chocs for Sunday which was our Ruby wedding but they were already in the room when we got there. We complained & reception said they hadnt recd instructions. Very brusque and not helpful. Nothing could be done! We had to walk through wedding photos. being taken... More

Fabulous service for a beautiful wedding reception. As a guest checking in the service was quite ordinary, at best. No help available for the luggage. Poor directions from the front desk had me walking all around the hotel with luggage when their was no entry other than the front entry. Maybe it was just a matter of untrained staff at... More

We enjoyed our 2 nights at the four Pillars. room was great, bed a tad small. The staff were all very pleasant especially the Romanian man in the restaurant (sorry I have forgotten his name) very attentive. The food was good. My major disappointment was the location, I did a walk along the river Thames in the morning to discover... More

I have stayed here a few times now and love it so much. Wonderful grounds and scenery and it is so peaceful. Great rooms and facilities and loved the spa treatments. Service and staff are excellent and I can not find fault with anything. Thoroughly enjoyed all of my stays here and can't wait for another excuse to visit Oxford... More

I do like this Hotel and have used it for some years now . The staff are very good both in the bar and restaurant . The rooms are usual clean but the shower room occasionally needs closer inspection . The down side is that whilst the food is usually of a high quality you will certainly not feel full... More
