Stayed here for one night while on a business trip to Oxford.
Overall, the hotel will do just fine, though certainly nothing extraordinary. As has been noted by other reviewers, I also noticed that the rooms were in need of a renovation, but to be fair, the bed is okay and I personally think that is the most important part! Plenty of hot water in the showers. Cleanliness OK. I thought the price okay for the location, really. An easy 10-15 minute walk to downtown oxford and shopping/dining. I previously stayed at the Oxford Mercure and this was certainly a better hotel for the money (I also reviewed that property).
The hotel has a pool and fitness area. The wierd thing about the locker rooms and pool area was that there was a really bad smell there. It smelled like body odour and smelly farts--I had to get out. It was like there wasn't any ventilation at all and the smell had built up. I also though the general cleaniness in the pool/locker room area left a lot to be desired but maybe I caught them on a bad day. I did use the gym and it was pretty well equipped--no complaints there (but I went back to my own rooms for a shower rather than use the locker room showers).
After reading the reviews of the food I was expecting the worst, but I thought the breakfast buffet to be good (I didn't eat dinner there though)--though not cheap at 13 pounds.
To sum up, not the best, not the worst. Hope the smell has improved in the pool area.
