Extremely helpful and obliging staff. The hotel is very clean and tidy. It is only a two second walk from the railway station so very convenient. I would highly recommend. I was very pleasantly surprised at how friendly and accommodating they were - more places should be like this.

Extremely dated, unloved, bits falling off everywhere, dodgy electrics, very unclean feel about the place, dirt and deceased flies on the windowcills next to our breakfast table, yuk! Paid £60 of my hard earned pounds for the privilege. I was robbed! :(

Our brief fortnight holiday in Great Britain included two nights in Oxford, and that magnificent visit meant wonderful overnighting at the worthy Westgate Hotel. It was not my first choice, but the pleasant surprise at its quality means that from now on, I'll check it first for availability whenever returning. It looks a bit dowdy on the outside, but once...

What a waste of building with so much potential. A great location right next to the train station and only a short walk to town. The room was last decorated in the last 70s and left that way ever since. Poorly maintained with mould on the curtains, a warped flooring, flaking and patchy paint on the walls. As a 80s... More

Stayed in room 3 in the Annex, and while the sheets were clean, the duvet had cigarette burns on them. In general, the whole place was barely surface-level cleaned. My sink had dirt around the basin; there was a clipped toenail on the carpet and dust where it clearly hadn't been vacuumed in some time; the walls need to be... More

We have been a number of times just to the cafe for breakfast.. it's very good value for money. If you ask nicely they may be able to do black pudding as well . Completing a very good breakfast :-) p.s. the sausages are good quality not what they look like on the menu. .

We were suppose to stay one night only, thinking we would get a good price-quality. Instead it was so dirty and we were treated with such disrespect that we needed to go somewhere else. Bathroom didn't have showerhead (only bath), room felt dirty and when looking closer there were 10+ hairs on the bed and a few unidentifiable other green... More
