Recently arrived back from our second stay at this Holiday Inn. Although at first the location seems strange, access to the city centre is fairly easy. You can either get a taxi (taxi from Oxford train station to hotel cost us £11.50) or a park and ride bus service literally over the road. The latter is very handy and the bus runs fairly late too.
In comparison to other Holiday Inn's this is fairly new, with a presentable reception area. Room was basic as expected, but had everything you needed, including 20+ TV channels to keep the children enteratained. Although the fridge is empty, it is handy for storing drinks/food.
We ate in the restraunt on the first night, booking it as we arrived. Meals weren't the greatest, but the service was good. My son had the best meal, which was the chicken fajitas, very nice!
Breakfast was on the other hand very good.
We were impressed with the health club. The gym is spacious with plenty of machines, both times virtually empty. Spacious changing rooms, simple swimming pool with sunbeds, steam room, sauna and jacuzzi. I think fitness classes were also available too!
On the whole, it was an enjoyable stay and just what we exepected from Holiday Inn, would recommend.
