I picked this particular hotel because of its position, and I wasnet disappointed. Next door to a park and ride which made travelling into Oxford absolutely trouble free. Also having a bus pass made it even better.
The hotel is getting a little tired and needs some up dating. The staff were absolutely wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. Every request was met with a smile and a can do attitude. They should be complimented and certainly made the stay all the better.
A few things that would make the stay better. The towels in the rooms are dismal - perhaps if you upgraded them to a higher specification we would not ask for them to be changed each day. Come on we want fluffy towels not the poor ones that are offered. In fact the ones in the swimming pool are better quality. More walk-in showers for the less able. I have problems climbing into a normal bath so was disappointed that there were no other options. More shelves in the bathroom not enough in the room we were in. The food on offer was not great. We did eat in the lounge one evening. It was quick and hot but not a large menu. More could be made of this as there are not many eateries in the area.
The design of the hotel is a little disorganised as you have to walk through the lounge to get to the swimming pool but once there it is really good. The pool is of a good size with a lane area for those who want to have a serious swim. The water was reall warm, it was all very clean and well worth using.
I didnt use the internet as I object to the cost, though I do appreciate it is a company wide charge, in this day and age it should be free.
All in all a good experience and certainly made that more special be the very good staff.
