If you ever need a handy stop over near to bewitching Oxford then think no further than the excellent Premier Inn just on the doorstep of this historic city.
Our one night stay was ideal for my purpose of combining a rock concert on the Friday night with a day's shopping on the Saturday.
From arrival to checkout the staff were both extremely friendly and willing to assist at all times.
Check in was quick and once our room had been located and luggage sorted my wife and I ventured the short journey to the adjacent restaurant for dinner.
We both opted for the excellent risotto (mine with chicken for an extra 99p I believe) and I also sampled the pleasant house red.
The food and drink was really very good for the price and the service was above average for a budget hotel.
The room itself was clean and fresh feeling with a comfy bed, large TV and an excellent en suite bathroom with an easy to use spacious shower...shower gel provided in a handily placed dispenser!
After a good night's sleep (our room was lovely and quiet) it was off to breakfast in the restaurant.
A friendly member of staff was on hand to show you the ropes as you helped yourself to coffee/tea and a choice of cereal...I chose a tasty mix of granola &
Then it was time to select your pre cooked English breakfast. I had sausages, hash brownies, baked beans, mushrooms and an epic poached egg. I say EPIC
because my first egg (separately ordered) was whisked away from our table while we were piling up our plates. However the same unflappable staff member ordered me a replacement which arrived in rapid time to enjoy with the remainder of an excellent starter for a day round the shops.
Add free parking to this and the relative closeness to Redbridge Park & Ride, which runs frequently into Oxford city centre and you know you made the right choice here
Music fans please also note that the Oxford O2 Academy is nearby. Turn right out of the hotel car park and after a 10 minute drive or so the venue is on the left hand side as you head down the Cowley road.
Book this hotel...I don't think you'll regret it!
