I selected this hotel because of its proximity to rental car return locations and the railway station. When I enquired about parking options, I received a detailed sheet with various options from the receptionist. This was very helpful. We parked at the Seacourt Park & Ride on the way into Oxford. It cost 2 Pounds/24 hours. The P&R bus took us straight to the hotel, about a 7 minute ride. I had asked for a quiet room and received on at the back so the street noise was never an issue. There is no elevator. The receptionist did offer to help with luggage but we didn't take her up on it as we were on the 1st floor and could easily manage ourselves. The twin room was clean and the beds comfortable. The bathroom was clean. The airconditioner only seemed to work for about 10 minutes before switching off so we did get very hot during the night. There was a small cupboard with hangers and shelves. A small table held a kettle and tea & coffee supplies, along with biscuits. The room was small but manageable for just two nights. We paid for breakfast at the time of booking - 11 Pounds each. In addition to a full English breakfast there was yogurt, fruit, cereal and some basic pastries. The full English breakfast was served on a piping hot griddle which made it far too hot to eat until it cooled down. It was also very greasy. I don't think the breakfast was worth the price and would not buy it again. You can get a cheaper, healthier option at any cafe in town. It was an easy walk into the centre of the city. I returned to the P&R the following day and returned the car to the rental location. It was an easy walk back to the hotel (15 minutes). The following day we left from the station, an easy 5 minute walk with luggage.
