Hawkwell House Hotel
Ranked #18 of 44 Hotels in Oxford
Reviewed August 31, 2007

staying in hotel on short break whilst sightseeing in oxford. Brilliant location to get to all the tourist places. We left the car at hotel to go to oxford on bus, cheap and run well in2 the night.

We stayed in the elm house which is made up on 15 bedrooms, it was a nice room overlooking the grounds. The bed was awful. they are in need of new matress. but hey we paid 200 for 3 nights inc breakfast which i thought was very reasonable compare to the city hotels who then charged 20 p/n for parking!

Overall a lovely stay. One mention the restaurant is brilliant the food is lovely.

Stayed at the Hawkwell for a wedding. The room was pretty nice, modern and comfortable and clean. The bar areas have been given a makeover and look relatively good - drinks apparently were quite expensive but ths is a hotel bar.

Car parking easy enough and no height barriers. Journey into Oxford is probably too far to walk unless you fancy a walk as well as going into Oxford. But less than 5mins from the hotel is a bus stop which for 1.50 or 2 pounds return will drop you off in the centre of town. Taxis are 5 pounds or so either way.

So in fact, not bad.

I was in Oxford for 2 days for a course and in planning the trip found it particularly difficult to get accomodation in Oxford, which was central and within my organisation's budget.

For the price (£72 per night for a single room with full breakfast) it was very good value. The room although small was very clean and pleasantly decorated. It is not a luxury hotel, but it is very comfortable and offers a good standard of accomodation.

Staff were attentive and the housekeeping was exceptional. It was a bit further away than I had anticipated but there is a bus route nearby.

It is so much better than I imagined and I would stay here again if returning to Oxford.

We have just returned after a 3 night Easter break at this Hotel.
We booked using a last minute hotel search and got a very good deal, then to top if off when we phoned up for the reservation they upgraded our room for the same price to a superior room.
The room itself was very clean and comfortable. Our room overlooked the back of the main hotel with a neatly cut lawn in between and the occasional squirrel could be seen bounding across it. All the staff were very efficient and polite. There was plenty of parking spaces and very good security lighting.
The breakfast was one of the best we have had with plenty to choose from. There were 4 different types of breakfast juice, a variety of individual cereals, full English breakfast, freshly made fruit salad, continental breakfast, rolls and crosants etc. The waiters were very efficient and brought out tea/coffee and toast almost immediatley.
The village of Iffley itself is very pretty and a warm welcome was had at the local pub. Oxford was a 2 mile walk away, but with plenty of buses if needed or a taxi ride wich cost £5.

We had a very enjoyable stay and would highly recomend it to anyone.

We stayed one night at this hotel to celebrate our son's birthday who is studying in Oxford.We were a party of nine and most of us stayed in family rooms.We had very stylish modern rooms overlooking the garden.The beds were beautifully comfortable. The restaurant was perfect for a celebration meal and the staff couldn't have been more helpful.The overall cost was very reasonable.Parking in central Oxford is virtually impossible but this hotel is only a short journey by taxi or regular bus service to the heart of the city.

We only got as far as the foyer here but it looked slightly grubby. The receptionist was rude. In response to our comment that we had a booking, she said rudely "Check-in isn't until two o'clock" (It was noon at the time). She reluctantly searched her card filing system for our booking under a variety of names while not listening properly to our explanations. She couldn't find anything and only offered us a room when we asked for the rate. We returned to the car to re-group, left the hotel and Oxford!

Wonderful welcoming hotel with good sized rooms and comfortable beds. The staff were fantastic very welcoming and always smiling it was uplifting to be in there care.
The informal restaurant was a bright and airy conservatory which was also used for breakfast. The bistro style food was faultless although some of the restaurant staff need more training.
