I have stayed here regularly since 2016, sadly since a change in local management a few years ago there this has been a steady deterioration in quality to a point where I will no longer stay. Cleanliness standards have declined and service generally. The final straw was arriving mid evening a few months ago, having booked non feather bedding as usual, to find feather bedding bedding in the room. The response was poor, whilst they said they were looking for a replacement communication was lacking. I had to seek updates and by 10pm I asked for another update to be be told they could find any and had stopped looking. Staff had not had the courtesy to let me know so I could try and get some sleep. Being allergic to feathers I could not use the feather bedding leading to a very uncomfortable night. Despite several requests to the owner I have not had a response from them. Very disappointing.

Responded Feb 17, 2019
Dear Guest: We are pleased that you had a pleasant stay with us and appreciated the underfloor heating. We also are very fond of our location, just ten minutes from the city centre. We are also glad you had a chance to try our pizza from Caffè Ethos and enjoyed it. We hope to see you again soon.

Oxford accommodation isn't cheap, so to find Ethos hotel and its clean, modern rooms, in what is still a very central location, is an excellent discovery. Highly recommended, especially if what you need is a base to explore the city

We stayed at this hotel due to it’s location, it was just across from the Albert docks and it was only a five minute walk to the centre, where we visited the cavern club. The only downside to the hotel was the quality of the breakfast.

We stayed in the Ethos as a weekend break from the children. Great location just a short walk from town. Good food and really helpful staff. Our room also had a full fridge and and a microwave if we needed it. Would be happy to recommend to anyone.
