4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here 2 nights. Room are fine but could do with air condition. Breakfast is below standard and small for the number of people. If they could improve the breakfast, I'm sure it would get a 5* from us. Heard a lot of the other customers moaning about the breakfast as well. Free car park is a bonus.

Great location next to Oxford United F.C., with views overlooking the stadium. The facilities are comfortable, and staff on hand to assist with any General enquiries on local amenities. As the hotel only caters for room and breakfast, you can take a 5 minute walk to a local leisure park offering a cinema complex, and a choice of restaurants.

Situated next to the Kassam Stadium, the hotel was nevertheless in a quiet area and was clean & comfortable. Efficient & friendly staff at Reception advised re local eating places as the hotel doesn't have a restaurant, the inclusive complimentary breakfast is self-service in the lounge. The rooms do not have air-conditioning, but the lack of outside noise meant leaving... More

I'm not going to lie, it was the free car park that made up our minds about staying here- but we're glad we picked it as it was perfect. Friendly staff, lovely clean rooms, bar area downstairs, toiletries in room, kettle and tv (as I suppose is the norm these days) We were a hen party and the staff let... More

Good clean comfortable room. Rather warm but down to weather . Air conditioning would have been nice. Sofa bed all made up ready. Helpful friendly staff. All basic facilities in the room, hairdryer, tea and coffee, shower wash. A quiet location.. Although not sure what it would be like when a football match is on as stadium directly outside.
