4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room with twin beds was spacious, clean and comfortable with TV. The grounds were carefully tended and evoked a rural setting. Breakfast buffet was varied and good. The hotel has a nice swimming pool area and a small gym above it. Only problem was the renovation to the Reception area which hindered access to parts of the hotel. Staff were... More

The communal areas are lovely. Good breakfast, nice lunch, ok meeting room (although we had to keep requesting additional water as it was a hot day and there was hardly any water in the meeting room). Stayed for a 2 day work conference. We booked as a group of 8 and 2 colleagues had really luxury rooms in the little... More

Dear worksavetravelrepeat, Thank you for taking the time to write your review, and I am sorry we did not meet your expectations on this occasion.

My husband and I booked this hotel because of its location to the river and the centre of Oxford and having read previous reviews were prepared to put up with disruption, overheating and rude staff! Quite the opposite, our room was lovely with a large fan and windows which opened and let in fresh air! No disruption going on at... More

This hotel is in a great location for central Oxford. We arrived and could see that the hotel had received a update as all you could smell was paint and varnish. So the downstairs area is very well laid out but very similar to walking round a furniture shop. We went to our room which was a very long way... More

Dear Benatjamins, Thank you for your review. I am sorry you found the rooms to be too warm and therefore suffered from a disturbed night. Unfortunately not all of our rooms benefit from air conditioning, which I appreciate can be uncomfortable in the unusually high weather we have recently benefited from. We do offer fans for all rooms, which aid... More

Our most recent stay in the hotel was during their refurbishment of the bar areas. Despite the disruption of space the staff were always happy to help and were friendly. The rooms are lean and comfortable with good beds and all the conveniences you need. The location is ideal. Close enough to walk in to the city centre but far... More

We needed a hotel that was walking distance to Oxford for a four day stay to attend a friend's wedding and reception. After reading some of the reviews, we were a bit hesitant, but the pros seemed to outweigh the cons. Our experience was fine. The size and layout of the hotel is a bit confusing at first, but once...

I would rate this hotel higher if it weren't for the staff both on reception and in the restaurant /bar. Not friendly or smiley and made a number of mistakes in the restaurant at breakfast and lunch and made out it was our fault. The hotel room was incredibly hot with no air con and windows hardly opened which made... More

This hotel only has air con in their 6 deluxe rooms. We only found this out after staying the night on a summers day. It wasn't a particularly warm day but the room was like an oven, so ww got very little sleep.... I had hoped, when we checked out, that we would be asked if we had a nice... More

I have now stayed at this hotel twice when attending a course at the university, on both occasions I have struggled to consider this a 4 star hotel. The rooms are tired, the leisure facilities need updating and a good clean and the food is poor. The staff are unfriendly and the service in the restaurant was very poor. I... More
