I've stayed at this hotel before and been disappointed in the overall impression. I must say however that the hotel has made great strides in addressing their deficencies.
The hotel is very easy to find, being located on a Services Station just on the outskirts of Oxford. Rush hour can present a problem exiting the services, but then again this could be said for every location.
The check in experience was very good, and the staff incredibly polite and courtous. They provided me with all of the details I needed and the general look and feel of this hotel feels perfect for it's location.
The room was clean and contained all of the essentials required (Although it was noted that you will need to call housekeeping for an iron and ironing board - although this came quickly when requested). The room is comfortable with air conditioning and a good selection of channels on the TV. A nice touch was made with a courtesy call to ask if everything was ok with the room and ask if there was anything else I needed
The food was also of good quality, served well and at reasonable prices. There is a wide variety of food available and from the look of other tables (And my own) each was of high quality.
The checkout experience was very good, quick and with enough staff on to meet the demands of the queue.
I'd certainly recommend this hotel for it's location and convenience and also polite and courteous staff.
