As I mentioned, this hotel has a great location in the heart of Oxford. The history in Broad Street alone is pretty staggering. And you are a brief walk away from the Turf Tavern - a must-do! I also feel it is very reasonably priced. Large room with high ceiling, a decent bed and large windows that open to let... More

I frequently travel to Oxford for academic work and conferences. This hotel was recommended by a recent conference I attended as a possibility for those arriving early. Note that the reception desk is up a steep flight of stairs, with no lift. My taxi helped me on the front end and the staff when I was leaving. On the plus... More

Very good location on Broad Street in Old Oxford. We were attending a conference at New College which was only a 7-8 minute walk away. It is located near many historic places in Oxford, good pubs, and interesting restaurants. We got a room on the top floor over the street. The hike up the winding stairs with luggage is not... More

We loved this little 16 room hotel located on High Street across from Trinity College. It is in the heart of Old Oxford, just minutes from the Bodlian Library, Radcliffe Camera, Queens College, All Souls and pretty much everything. Coming from the US, we wanted a more traditional place to stay and this was it--the building is quite old, so... More

I was very excited to book the buttery after I read many reviews on trip advisor, and elsewhere. I have stayed in many hotels in my life, and avoid staying in soulless chain hotels, that feel like you could be anywhere in the world, and do not reflect the local culture. The buttery looked just right for me, however the... More

Oh dear I'm sorry you were not happy with your stay I am talking to all reception staff as all guests should be offered help with their luggage. There is an intercom at the door if you have heavy bags. I hope that once you tried our breakfast you actually found more than cereal and enjoyed the variety. We do... More

We had a nice (but short) stay here. The room was clean, the location was excellent, and the staff were friendly. We would stay there again. The stairs are a little tough to navigate. Not much else to say, good basic accommodations.

I had a couple of days to relax before a meeting and chose to spend them in Oxford. I selected The Buttery in large part because of its excellent location. I was arriving and departing by bus, and the hotel is a few minutes' walk from the central bus station. (The train station is somewhat further down the road, but... More

Tidy, practical and functional. Cannot get too enthusiastic about this hotel. What it really scores on is the location. Its its squarely across the road from Balliol college and in the heart. Of Oxford town centre and only barely 10minute easy walk to the train station. If these are your priorities, do go ahead and book. The staff are courteous... More

A location in the heart of the old town and a spotless, well appointed, comfortable room. Pleasant, helpful staff, and a good nights sleep. Good bed linen and towels, fast free wi fi, and decent lighting. Didn't eat the breakfast, but it's included in the room price. The Buttery isn't a plush hotel, but it's certainly a 5 Star B...
