We visited this hotel as a cost effective means by which to attend a friends birthday party at Mal maison in Oxford City centre. Having had the benefit of seeing both Hotels I think we got a brilliant deal, as the cost, location and value for money we received was great.
The Hotel itself is lovely and strikes a great balance between old fashioned warmth, and contemporary decor, which I really enjoyed. Our room was light and comfortable, and the breakfast really hit the spot.
I think there was a wedding reception on on the day we arrived, but it was obviously managed pretty well as we were barely aware of it.
The only sour note for us, was a Hotel booked a Taxi driver who decided to charge us £16 to get into town. A reputable taxi on the way back cost us £6 at 2am in the morning so some shenanigans was definitely taking place, and we duly informed the Hotel. I hope they act on it.
Hopefully we'll get the opportunity to visit again, though whether we'd share the experience with our kids is another matter. I think this one is for grown ups only.
