What a fantastic venue for a wedding. My daughter Sarah was married to Mark at the Hawkwell House Hotel on Saturday 2nd July 2016. After months of planning and discussions with the Hotel wedding coordinator, Hollie Mechen, the day went perfectly, without any hitches whatsoever. The staff were attentive but not intrusive. The food was excellent. Nothing was too much... More

Spent 3 nights here in July 2016 with friends. Conveniently situated for Oxford, with a lovely walk by the Thames into Oxford if the weather allows, the hotel is situated in a quiet residential area close to the Oxford Ring Road. On arrival, we were shown to Elm House, separated from the main building by around 70-100m, and described on... More

Needing a hotel for a Friday night in Oxford the City centre options were outrageously expensive for reasons I didn't understand until I hit the City centre to find that it was Graduation Day and tthe place was overrun with robed students and their parents.

I am really traveling a lot, but this was one of the stranger experiences in an industrial, western world country. We were here with the family taking 4 rooms. Single rooms for elderly people (more than 74), twin bed and double bedroom. What we liked was the surroundings in a green park-like environment. Pitiful enough that we just spent the... More

Have stayed here before about four years ago. We chose it because of its lovely setting and location in a village with easy access to the River Thames and as an alternative to having to drive into Oxford. Oxford is an expensive city to stay in so this was marginally better priced at £135 b&b for one night. Recommend walking... More

Reception area reminiscent of a B&B and "low budget" given the room rate. Reception staff who don't seem particularly well trained. Room clean and well equipped. Food in restaurant for evening meal good but service is very slow. Meal for one colleague came when others had practically finished. Breakfast fine, good selection on buffet and cooked available. All in all,... More

We arrived at around 4pm but our room wasn't ready. Generally speaking I would say this isn't a problem, especially as we were directed to the bar and offered a complimentary drink. However, the two staff on reception were what I can only describe as "bickering" with each other about whether the room was available and what colour it appeared... More
