2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

For the price we paid, and knowing it is a 4 star hotel, I was expecting something more. The (standard double) room was small, duvet and pillows cheap and the whole place just lacked any kind of atmosphere or soul whatsoever. The public rooms in particular are purely functional. The enamel on the bath was chipped, stains were on the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights & on the first night we stayed in one of the basic rooms. This was fine but was too hot at night despite the fact that it wasn't particularly warm outside. The other two nights we stayed in one of the air conditioned rooms which was a world apart from the first room. This... More

Just stayed one night, fabulous location with only a 10 minute walk into the centre of the city. However beware of visiting shortly as major renovations, noisy work being carried out until gone 6pm and starts again before 8am - will a lorry picking a skip up! Room was lovely but no air conditioning and no fridge! I was so... More

We are in process of refurbishing the hotel, which has caused some disruption, in particular to the routes joining public areas to bedrooms.

I have stayed here for business trips many times and I always love it here. They are currently in the middle of renovations which is not ideal but really needed. A little bit noisy during the day but well contained. Friendly staff and I always love the Thames River Walk into town.

Great stay with no problems at all, staff amazing, food good, room terrific and location wonderful. Little more to say - this is a great hotel, currently undergoing some refurbishment which did not affect us at all.

Initially my husband and I were not happy with our allocated room, very small and dark and pokey, overlooking a brick wall. It was also unbearably hot and stuffy. As we had booked 2 nights we really felt that this was not acceptable. My husband found the duty manager (a lovely, helpful, lady) and explained the problem. Within minutes we... More

Rooms are pretty roomy for Europe - make that very roomy for Europe. Beds r comfortable. We listen to horses in the morning but can easily walk the 1.5 km to the Oxford CBD. And if you can't walk Oxford buses and public transport is easy and well organized. Easy for non locals to learn. Most rooms do not have... More

Dear denevans, Thank you for your review. I agree the location is great for getting into Oxford, being either a 15 minute walk up the River Thames or on public transport from outside the hotel. Unfortunately not all of our rooms benefit from air conditioning which due to British weather is not usually a problem, however with the recent heatwave... More

We had 3 rooms booked for a birthday treat. We booked via secret escapes so got a good price for dinner bed and breakfast and a bottle of wine. It was good value for the price but as everyone is saying the hotel is being refurbished and some bits are quite tired. The restaurant staff weren't very helpful at dinner... More

We had a lovely overnight stay and the grounds are as beautiful as all the pictures on here suggest. Beautiful room, large bathroom and nice products. Check in and check out however were hugely painful due to the almost clueless receptionists who seemed to be playing an elaborate game of 'let's see what this button does' on the till. The... More
