Our wonderful (not) travel agent changed our hotel at the last minute from one in the heart of Oxford to one at the edge. Apart from the difficulty in then finding the hotel (it depends which way you come - its smack bang on the a34) it presents well. The staff were very professional and the rooms surprisingly large and well appointed. The room was clean, had a good bathroom and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was quite good.
The only issue is getting into town. The taxis must do pretty well and its a long way from the city centre in relative terms. There is a park and ride nearby, with regular buses, however getting there isnt the easiest route, via a garage and having to find an ad hoc entry point. Absolutely no good for anyone with movement issues, not able to walk far etc.
Nevertheless this is a good hotel which is very comfortable. Seems to be quite popular with travelling businessmen and small tour groups. Even though it is right beside a busy motorway, there is absolutely no road noise whatsoever.
