We stayed here New Year's Eve. Room was very nice, location is perfect. Staff on reception were helpful, restaurant totally let this place down. Staff looked confused that we were asking for our table, I have never seen such unhappy staff, two items on the menu had ran out. We went to a room which had seating in to have... More

We stayed o/n in late December 2015. We were met with helpful and informative reception lady. Also when I booked by phone the lady was very helpful and said she would try for a front facing room. We got a super room on 3rd floor. Dinner inc a glass of champagne was very good. Breakfast was good plenty of options.... More

A charming establishment. The staff were gracious, our room was cozy and breakfast was delicious. Our only disappointment was that the dining room was closed by the time we arrived at 10 pm. We stayed only briefly, arriving late and leaving after breakfast. But we would love to return for a longer stay.

From the most awesome and helpful front desk staff to the perfect location, this is THE place to stay in Oxford. Nothing is a trouble - from booking local restaurants to organising early breakfasts. Comfy beds, great street views and yummy breakfasts!

Check in, room, service, food, parking, check out - all excellent. Absolutely no complaints whatsoever. Next time we visit Oxford, will definitely stay here. Didn't make use of free bike hire or guided tour of Oxford as were only staying one night. Really wish we could have stayed longer. View from room 18 wasn't great, but the room was a... More

Right on the High Street, this hotel was understated, quiet, beautifully decorated and friendly. My room overlooked the church and college across the street. Huge bathroom. Lots of outlets. Small quiet sitting room at back of hotel for guests only. (Restaurant is very nice, but also very busy - did not feel like a good spot to sit quietly after... More

The hotel is Centrally located, convenient, nice old architecture and friendly staff. However, quite expensive and smaller rooms. Breakfast takes time as it is made to order. Restaurant also looks good Overall a good stay.

Booked for Friday & Saturday for a nearby wedding and decided to splash out on the largest room on the top floor (rm 45). We expected a lot more than we received for the amount per night, which was equivalent to central London prices. Appreciate that centre of Oxford is magical but the price was off the scale compared to... More
