3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

To start on a positive, the location is great - lots of parking, 15 minute walk to the centre by road or river bank and our room on the second floor was clean, spacious and nicely decorated & furnished. Only 1 lift in reception and that didn't go to the second floor - only to suites and certain areas of... More

Accomodation good,breakfast excellent but bar service and prices very disappointing; e.g one hour wait for bar sandwiches,cappuchino -4pounds 25!-glass of coke(not a pint) 3pounds 50!!-wine at nearly 10pounds a glass. Staff very pleasant but whole experience not really 4 star.

The hotel is situated about 15 minutes walk south of Christ Church College and just on the banks of the river. A decent location away from the bustle of town, especially during tourist season, but not too far that walking isn't an option to most places. It is especially nice in the mornings to take a stroll up the river... More

The food was very good and well presented we both hope to stay there again in the near future. The Hotel is also very close... More

Took ages to check in - staff were under training and one overworked manager doing his best with a lot of trainees. Housekeeping forgot a couple of requests - routed through front office. Taxis ordered were delayed etc. Front office staff need work. Otherwise the hotel is nice.

Good size rooms, fantastic breakfast and dinner, OK spa facilities (could be modernised), good swimming pool. 15 min walk along the river to Christ Church and 20mins to central Oxford. Great, helpful, attentive staff.

Beautiful hotel, excellent and quiet location (10 min. walk from the center), helpful and efficient staff and relaxing atmosphere. Probably the only comment I have is a very bad WiFi, at least in the building I stayed in (a new addition to the hotel, not the main building). And even in the main building it wasn't strong enough.

Really did like this place and felt that it offered good value to other hotels I stayed at in the area. Would stay again and yes the rooms while not big or over furnished are good value for what is paid

The room size was reasonable, the bathroom OK, the bed fairly comfortable, the cushions/pillows low quality/lumpy. The tv remote didn't work and the tap dripped in the bathroom. Breakfast was pretty good. All in all, just scraped a 3 rating from me!

Having spent many years wandering around Europe visiting the main Capital cities, my wife decided she wanted to explore some of our own beautiful cities in England. Being a keen supporter of Oxford University at the boat race, she decided she wanted to visit the city itself. One is spoilt for choices when looking for hotels in the area, but... More
