I visited Oxford on my own as a little birthday trip so wanted a hotel that was super central and as safe as possible as a lone woman traveller. This hotel couldn't have been better. Directly above a Jamies Italian and surrounded by lots of eateries, pubs, theatres and cinemas it was ideal. The room was very quiet despite the busy area and it was easy to find, literally across the road from the park and ride bus (pear tree I think). The hotel just has a doorway at street level, which leads up to a reception and onto about 8 bedrooms. The reception feels more like the entrance to a beauty salon and there's qiute a lot of steps to get to the rooms, but it's all clean and functional. The room itself was lovely - modern, bright and warm. It's obviously all very new. Good facilities, tv, hair dryer etc and a lovely shower with great products and soft towels. The front of house lady was very helpful and friendly and made me feel right at home.
Shops are all very close. The Randolph Hotel (which has the Morse bar) is just a short walk ground the corner and worth a visit as is the Massoleum hotel which had a fabulous Cezanne exhibition when I visited . There's also a lovely little bakery beneath the hotel which was perfect for a morning croissant ( I didn't take breakfast as part of my booking).
All in all a great value, well located, lovely modern hotel and I would definitely stay again without hesitation. Recommended.
