Beautiful wisteria covered building with a gorgeous terrace for al fresco dining. Nice details and a comfortable room with a deliciously comfortable bed. The room was a little smaller than we expected, but it was very nicely done out and comparatively the bathroom was a good size with everything we needed. To be honest Oxford offers so much to see and do we did not spend much time in the room so the size of the room did not really matter.
We took advantage of the dinner bed and breakfast package which perhaps should be made clear offers only £50 per night towards meals which with wine come in around £100 for two so is perhaps not as good a deal as it would initially appear. It does include a delicious and plentiful breakfast however and compared to other similar hotels in the area who charge for parking and breakfast did work out to be quite good value.
We would highly recommend the sister restaurant Gee's where you can choose to eat as part of the DBB deal. We loved it and it made a very special day even more perfect with fantastic service and food in a perfect venue (an old Victorian conservatory) We preferred the food and service at Gees to that we received at the hotel, it was just extra special there, but the maitre d' at the hotel was very good as well.
There were a few llittle niggles along the way, the meeting room is between the reception and the stairs to some of the rooms so if it is use you have to go outside to get to your room from the reception/restaurant area and the waiting staff in the evening were a little thin on the ground, but overall we had a wonderful time and we would definitely go back as long as we can eat at Gee's again!
