We have been staying at the River Hotel on many trips to Oxford since 2001, and have always found it to be consistently clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, and the breakfast excellent. The rooms are simple but well kept and airy. The position by the river is superb, and makes for lovely walks as well as quiet nights even with the windows open. Is is also an easy walk to the center of town.
Interestingly, we just stayed here in room 7 at the same time as "Ballerina" was in rooms 6 and 9 around us, yet experienced nothing like what she reports. There was a smell of paint because parts of the outside of the building were being repainted, which seems like very normal maintenance.
We will certainly continue to stay at the River Hotel whenever we come to Oxford, because of the comfort, friendliness, and location. It was a master builder's house and has history and character. We like that.
Many thanks. Sarah and JosephMore
