In the Shires
Jul 2015 • Couples
Nice hotel nestling in the leafy suburbs of Oxford; far enough for some peace and quiet and yet within easy distance of the City and all it has to offer. Large reception area and enough staff to ensure check in was fairly brisk. Rooms are well appointed and comfy and the food on offer was varied.As always, businesses rise or fall by the standard of training given to their staff and how they react. Staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble. A word of caution because I made a mistake in the booking and did not ask for an easy access room which meant me and stick had some stairs and a fair walk to make. It was my fault and a lovely lady called Louise put me right on the correct procedure. On booking make sure you make your access requirements known in the comments box. If you forget, arrive and find yourself in difficulty advise them immediately and they will try and arrange a room move. Given that sort of service I shall come back here when next in the shires.

Stayed here for our anniversary. We used an Amazon local voucher for a premier room but when we arrived they only had standard room. Staff were helpful and breakfast was good. Would probably stay again but only with a voucher .

Halloween weekend away

Let's start with a positive the meal on the second night was very nice but that's where the review ends after which customer service terrible on arrival they had completely mucked the room rates thankfully had my confirmation emails on my phone then got to nice room long walk and no lift then to get through to room service took nearly a hour.
Upon departure all the early issues arose once more regarding final bill after some 25 mins of discussion let's say and being told that they did not wish to take up my time well given they were trying to over charge by £150 I was quite prepared to wait around until sorted will in the end it was and paid the amount that I stated 25mins previously hope the change of hands to a new chain helps but the reception staff need to go or put through an extensive training course on customer service do not go must be better places in town

Review of spa visit and afternoon tea (Amazon Local Deal)
Oct 2015 • Friends
I received an Amazon Local voucher as a gift. It included a spa day for two with a 25 minute treatment and afternoon tea. We visited in October 2015.

The package itself was very good value, the beauticians were very accommodating and we upgraded to two treaments each (which at £15 a person we felt was very reasonable).

The massages and facials we received were of a high standard. My sister also used the gym which was of a good standard.

The facilities themselves are a little tired/shabby. Typical hotel spa, could do with a deep clean to remove the mould from around the tiles in the changing room, steam room etc. A couple of broken tiles in and around the pool need attending to and a good clean around the pool itself - it wasn't bad but just more attention to detail needed.

Its a shame as at one point we counted 5 staff in there - with us being the only ones using the facilities, so they had time on their hands (just not rubber gloves) ;-)

The included afternoon tea was lovely, we are fussy eaters and they substituted the sandwich fillings for us. Nothing seemed too much trouble.

In a nutshell, the staff were great, the package was excellent value but the maintenance needs looking at.

Very disappointing
Oct 2015
On arriving, the hotel is easy to find, just off Peartree roundabout on the A40. There is ample parking and a fairly nice foyer. On checking in it seemed that there may have been a problem with our reservation, but this was not explained to us, just worried faces - we didn't need that really. We were then given our room card, no directions as to where the rooms were or whether we wanted help with our case. They apologised for the delay and we went on our way through a maze of corridors until we reached our room 166. What a shock, I have never seen a hotel room so tiny! The room was clean but that was the only thing going for it. The window sill was chipped as was the desk/dressing table, the chair at the table had a ripped seam, there was no mini bar or fridge in the room, no TV reception - we were there to watch some TV in the evening as this was a stop gap hotel.
There was nowhere to stow our case and to be honest if I was staying more than 1 night I would have moved room or even hotel as it was so cramped my partner and I were falling over each other.
This is by no means a 4* hotel. There might have been a trouser press, an iron and ironing board in the wardrobe and climate control but that by no means enhanced our stay at The Oxford Hotel. I would not recommend and would never stay again In fact it was such a disappointment as I thought Barceló hotels were means to be superior. I would have been happier in a Travelodge.

Nice hotel - within easy reach of Oxford
Aug 2015
We stayed here for 2 nights, room and breakfast. The check in was very easy and hitch free ,as was checking out. The rooms were small and clean, but as you don't spend much time in there, it wasn't an issue. Loved the free toiletries as saves bringing them if a short stay.The breakfast was fine and something for everyone - yes the bacon was fatty, but you just cut it off! All in all we had a really nice stay and wish we'd had time to use the facilities. Also was nice to see people with dos- even though we don't have one!

Convenient location
Jul 2015 • Couples
Situated just off the A34 about 2 miles from Oxford city centre. Plenty of parking and you can leave the car and get the City6 bus just around the corner with regular service that takes you straight into the city for £3.50 return! Comfy beds and good breakfast the room was also very quiet. Limited storage for your clothes as we had been away for several days we had more luggage than for a couple of nights.

Ideally situated for local places of interest in oxford
very accomodating hotel staff and personnel.Room was clean but rather small including the bed.tea making facilities in the room. Food was very good including an excellent high tea, dinner and breakfast. Very handy to visit Bleinhem Palace and historic Oxford.Reasonable rates with excellent spa facilities.Reccomended for adults more than children.
