Ethos was about a ten minute walk from downtown and the colleges. It was quiet and gave a sense of the Oxford community. There was a cafe across the street with good food and drink. Staff was very helpful.

The hotel was emailed prior to booking asking if they had a wheelchair accessible room with grab bars at the toilet and shower. The response was yes they had a handicap room with grab bars in the shower and we booked it. The check desk for the hotel is in the Ethos Cafe which is accessed by 3 steps with... More

Staff were very helpful after I made a mistake with my booking, and transferred my booking to the following night (which was a significantly higher price due to Oxford being quite busy). I appreciated this as I'd have lost all of my payment due to my mistake and not having any flexibility with travel dates. We had booked two suites... More

We stayed at this hotel for a week and it really felt like a home away from home. The room was comfortable and clean, and the staff were very welcoming and happy to assist. The hotel has a cafe that serves a delicious breakfast spread (bread, cereals, and a variety of hot options), which we got included with our rate.... More

We googled the menu before we went and it showed a full Italian menu but when we got there there was only starters and pizzas available. (Manager put up menu on website too early). However we stayed and had probably... More

The property is in a nice quiet location about a 10min walk from Oxford central. It is an easy flat walk, so suitable for all groups. We were in the Sky Loft which was nice and roomy and well appointed. Not good if you can't manage stairs. However the property could be better with some attention to detail. Firstly it... More

We booked 3 rooms for a bit of a family reunion over the bank holiday weekend. We arrived early and we're met with the most helpful and friendly staff!
