Slap bang in the middle of Oxford, within sight of The Bodlean Library and 2 or 3 colleges, this really is such a great location. Our room was on the front but we had no real problems with noise and any noise was the pay off for being right in the middle of the action. It was great to have the room as an easily accessible bolt hole to pick stuff up/ drop stuff off, on an ad-hoc basis. It's over a cafe where you can sit out with a coffee and cake on Broad St and watch the world go by, and not get ripped off despite the lovely location.
Breakfast was good - plenty of cereals and pastries as well as the full English (but the mushrooms were disappointing). The room was clean and had everything you'd need. The communal stair areas aren't pretty and there's no lift, but hey, it's a small price to pay to stay in such a convenient place.
There's no parking (often the case in Oxford) but do some research as when we went you could use the Thornhill park-and-ride and leave the car for up to 72 hours. Don't even think of leaving your car in a town centre car park!
We've had several trips to Oxford as our daughter is at uni there, and stayed in some pretty poor places. We wish we'd found this place before. We'll be back!
