We stayed at the Mercure Eastgate for 3 nights from 12th March and were pleasantly surprised.
We parked up and approached the front door, dreading what we would find behind it based on previous reviews. What we found was a modern, spacious reception area, obviously recently refurbished as you could smell fresh paint on the walls and polish on the wooden floor.
The reception staff were very friendly and could not do enough for us during our stay, whether it be ensuring that our car was parked in a space suitable for an early start the next day or providing us with extra tea bags for the room.
The bar area was brand new, modern, stylish, but in keeping with it's traditional surroundings. An excellent place to relax in the evenings.
Our room (311) was very clean and spacious with a view overlooking the Examination Halls of Oxford University.
The hotel itself is ideally located off the High Street with plenty of good restaurants, pubs and bars within 5 to 10 minutes walk.
We would definitely return to this hotel should we visit Oxford again providing the standards of service and cleanliness that we experienced are maintained.
