My weekend in Oxford
Having arranged to meet friends in Oxford for the weekend, I looked for somewhere to stay.
Using late rooms, I looked for the best rates but in a nice environment. Having looked at several I came across the Mecure Eastgate, not a brand I knew well.
But wow, what a wonderful little hotel, hidden off the high street this hotel has everything you need. Great standard of Service and Quality and a car park.....which I learned is good in oxford.
Entering you are greeted with a warm welcome form the reception staff that can’t do enough to help! Offering advice on where to go and what to do........
The corridors are a little claustrophobic but it is an old building. I stayed in room 317 which is right on the corner of the high street. The room for me has character and charm. Immaculately clean, tidy and well presented with a vast bathroom.
I had a great night out on Friday and just wanted to chill on Saturday with friends some food etc.....
We were told on check in that the hotel has a restaurant, but with most hotel restaurants they aren’t that great.
The High Table brasserie at the hotel is a total exception, its trendy, contemporary and welcoming!
And with an amazing daily menu from only £14.95 for 3 courses...... the menu has classic dishes with a modern influence.
All in all went staying Oxford I would high recommend stay at the Eastgate and experience the culinary delights the High Table Offers, even if you stay else where......Eat here you won’t regret it!
