We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and it was excellent, ok it is old, quirky, quaint, doesn't have all the "mod cons" of an anonymous chain style hotel, but it does have charm. The location is great, literally a few hundred yards (sorry I only know old money!) from the centre of Oxford, so easy walking and no need to take the car our.
Fortunately we stayed in the old part of the hotel, which was large, very clean, quirky and to get to it you go up an old original staircase. The room was well appointed, mini bar, coffee/tea making facilities, free Wi Fi, tv etc.
All of the staff are excellent, mothing was to much trouble for them, they made you feel welcome and at home.
Breakfast choice was limited but very good, I had the cooked full english for the three days we stayed and it was freshly cooked to order and the quality was consistant. The continental looked good as well, again not much choice but good quality.
I think the only downside is the car parking as there are relatively few spaces at the hotel, but they do have other parking facilities nearby, I beleive.
The hotel is dog friendly and all are made welcome.
If you want a modern "box" hotel then this isn't for you, however if you want something more personal and homely this is a must stay hotel in Oxford, we will be returning.
