We visited Oxford to attend a wedding in Merton College, and were pleasantly surprised to find this Mercure hotel right at the college wall (in fact, the newer rooms look out onto the hotel carpark). It is essentially a boutique hotel, with a beautifully decorated lounge and bar area (which we used as our family sitting room), and quaint but... More

My wife and I returned to the Eastgate in Oxford as we enjoyed our precious stay immensely. Three years later, I still highly recommend. Great shower and comfortable room. Close to all the best Oxford sites. I would come back again and again.

We stayed at the Mercure Eastgate Oxford whilst we were taking a course at Merton College, Oxford. The hotel is located very near the entrance to Merton College and was very convenient to our class. The first room to which we were assigned was acceptable with a relatively large bedroom, desk, closet and ample bathroom. However, on our first morning... More

Position is very central. Room is big enough for 2. Bathroom is big but shower is huge! (two people could shower at the same time) Breakfast is really good (both continental and English) Hotel is very silent (no much noise, traffic is light and if you are lucky to stay in the internal view rooms, they are basically soundless)

Having spent 5 minutes in Room 108 I knew I could not sleep there. There is an industrial ventilation unit that blocks the window, which hummed continuously and the room smelt of a deep fat fryer. I changed/upgraded to a 'Privilege' room; I have yet to understand what was privileged about it. Anywhere else it would be a standard bedroom.... More

My family of three tried to look for a room in Oxford to fit all of us. After trying many other hotels in the area, only Mercure could accommodate us in its premier room which can fit a roll away bed. So down to no choice and without my expectation, we checked in one day in early August, but became... More
