Nice Hotel with free parking. Good Wi-fi in the rooms. Good beds and breakfast. It is 40 minutes walking from Oxford centre, 10 minutes by car as the streets are usually busy. in my opinion it is a good quality for money choice in Oxford

I went there with my 9 month old baby and in laws for a business conference. Upon arriving for our 9 day stay from Mexico we were told that our reservation had been lost... Apparently a bug with the Expedia system. But that's not all, we are told that the hotel was fully booked and could not accommodate us for... More

We stayed one night, with 2 kids. the room was fine, but the "beds" provided for the kids were "camp cots" (per the front desk). During the night one of the beds broke and my daughter ended up sleeping on the floor.

We had our wedding reception at Hawkwell on the 19th August. We booked the venue back in March 2015 and chose Hawkwell because the wedding coordinator at the time was warm, friendly, down to earth and flexible - a rare find with Oxford venues for a summer wedding! We were concerned when our wedding coordinator told us he had handed... More

Trying to avoid inner city parking we chose the Hawkwell House, It provide plenty of parking in a park like setting at the outskirts of the city. The reception is small, but our check-in was efficient. Room was clean and efficient. One of the highlights was the walk into town. Don't believe the instructions about 45 min. It was definitely...

Our room was clean, well organised and comfortable, but we felt the hotel was understaffed for dealing with the extra numbers on a Bank Holiday weekend. Those in attendance tried very hard to appear jolly, welcoming and in control, but breakfast was a frantic occasion with servers run off their feet. Guests were waiting for service, and buffet top ups... More

A very odd hotel and one to which we will not be returning. Rooms were fine...we experienced three different rooms in our two night stay...the first had a malfunctioning lavatory and the manager found two different rooms for us..one each evening. One was an upgrade to a suite...to compensate for the inconvenience which was a nice touch. But it was... More

Hello there, thank you for sharing your feedback, and I am sorry that you had an issue with a faulty toilet which has since been rectified. I am sorry to hear that the bar staff were busy, and this was possibly due to the wedding that was in, which isn't an excuse but one we should learn from. I welcome... More

We walked the Thames Path and stayed the night in this hotel. It is clean and very well run with decent food and drink. Good value especially if you want to stay around Oxford which gets very expensive. Lovely setting too with great car parking,

...seems like they're playing to older clientele to me. In a halcyon age of beer, this place offers an exceedingly poor selection of beers and wines at exorbitant prices, except in happy hour, when you get rubbish drink for reasonable money...on checking in they tell you it's a 24 hour bar, which is probably how long it'd take you to...
