My wife and I went into the restaurant ('caffe') part of the Ethos. I think the owners could spend time advertising the restaurant as they are adding things to the menu quickly. I had a pizza and my wife had a mezza platter. Both were very good. I definitely recommend the Ethos for lunch; when we were there were two... More

Excellent value for money. Modern rooms with good facilities and free speedy wifi. Quiet neighbourhood but easily within walking distance to the city centre (10 minutes). Booked this place at last minute after moving from the Mercure Eastgate Oxford due to shoddy air conditioning at the Mercure. Pleased to say the air conditioning here was top notch. Rooms are also...

Stayed for one night after a day exploring the city. The room was modern, with a kitchenette which really useful and convenient. The bed was also very cozy; a struggle to get out of! Breakfast was fantastic too, with helpful staff. Wish we could have stayed longer!

I already tried the hotel with pleasure some time ago. Meanwhile I rented one of their flats. Not far away from the City center I found and excellent place. What I need is space! Indeed, nothing to critisize. It's the perfect place to spend a week like at home. At the same time you can deeply dive into the British... More

We stayed here from July 1 to July 4th and wished we could have stayed longer! We had a kitchenette that was functional and worked out well for our needs. Truly the space felt more like a flat rather than a hotel room--it was so spacious! The bathroom was also large with a comfortable shower and tub. The towels were... More

I had the opportunity to stay for a brief business trip at The Ethos Hotel in Oxford after a colleague had recommended it. The room was comfortable with attractive modern fittings and furniture. It had all I needed, including access to a small car spot - although there are no lifts so don't bring too much luggage! The main advantage... More

We stayed here for one night for my partners birthday. It was a great location only a couple of minutes from the folly where we had dinner and a 10 minute walk to the high street. The room was nice and clean. What let it down for me was that there was no reception, so felt more like a b&b... More

Nice hotel conveniently located so that its a short walk to the town center. Some nice restaurants also just around the corner! Rooms are sufficient for a short stay of 1 or 2 nights. Breakfast is also available in an associated bar/cafe across the road from the hotel.

The manager is great and more than happy to make sure your stay is great. The rooms were way nicer than anything I expected and appeared to be newly remodeled. Flat screen tv's in the rooms, full desk, fast internet, small kitchen with refrigerator, newly done bathrooms with heated floors, what more could you want? Overall great stay and I... More

This is an expensive hotel but absolutely appalling facilities. It's more like a few terraced houses on the corner of a street purchased by the owners and made into a b&b. Our room was awful, broken door handles, damp walls with wall paper coming off, mouldy shower, the electricity safety check was 2009 and the lights had foreign plugs and... More

Dear Bezzandbrown, Thank you for taking the time to post your review last week, for a stay with us in October 2015 (8 months ago). Naturally, I am disappointed to learn of you rating your stay so poorly and of the challenges that accompanied your stay with us. Since your visit, the room in question has been refurbished. Oxford is... More
