I was at a conference in Oxford in the end of March and unbelievably, the weather was warm and sunny the whole time. This enhanced the experience at the Galaxie hotel which has a beautiful glass-walled breakfast hall with a lovely patio where I spent a whole morning working enjoying the sun and the great service. The best part of the hotel is the service - you feel like they really care for you as a guest but without being overbearing, attending fully to your needs but not interfering in your privacy. This is such a rare combination and it makes you feel at ease immediately.
The rooms are OK - mine was not really big and so my theory of there being no really spacious hotel rooms in England was not disproved, but it was cosy and clean. And the bathroom I had was great, quite big with a cool shower and with natural light. I did miss a fridge though - I like to have my own food and could not store stuff I wanted... On the other hand, there is easily accessible free broadband internet everywhere in the hotel.
Although it is some way out of Oxford city, the bus stop is just in front of the hotel and it never took more than 15 minutes to get in or to get home, even at late night. And there are great shops, coffee places, pubs and eateries just around the hotel so you don't need to go far to have a nice time when you had enough of the city. In short, I can recommend it as a great alternative to downtown hotels in Oxford, if you want some nice space and kindness around you,
