“A really nice hotel just on the outskirts of Oxford”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The Holiday Inn Oxford is a really nice hotel. When checking in you're greeted by a bright and airy reception which joins to an equally open and spacious bar. The rooms are clean, comfortable and modern - with full size baths and blessedly powerful showers.

The one potential drawback is that it's a little way out of town, but if you're prepared to drive in, or take a taxi (about 12 pounds from our experience) then this is a great choice.

Dear Guest,
Many thanks for your recent review on TripAdvisor following your stay at the Holiday Inn Oxford.
I am very pleased that your enjoyed your visit and liked the Hotel. We are a little out of town, however as you experienced it is easy to call a taxi from Reception or the park & ride bus service is located adjacent to the Hotel.
Thank you once again for your comments and I hope that we can welcome you back to Oxford in the future.

I always stay here when attending gigs or theatre in Oxford - as driving and parking in Oxford is not exactly encouraged! Easy to find, plenty of parking and spacious rooms - quiet at night too, given its proximity to major traffic.

Bed comfortable too - always sleep ok here.

10 minute taxi ride away into the city centre, so no problem there. All in all, excellent value.

Paid £120 for a night. It's not in the city but the park and ride is handy. Room nice and nice pool but sauna was not working. Paying a premium price for Internet really annoys me, especially as I'm a Priority Rewards customer. Why can I get it free in a Holiday Inn Express but not a Holiday Inn? Also breakfast was going to be £14 each so we passed. It's much better value staying at a HI Express.

Dear Guest,
Many thanks for your feedback following your recent stay in Oxford. We do offer a bed & breakfast inclusive rate or the opportunity to purchase vouchers at check-in for breakfast at a reduced rate.
Unfortunately internet charges are set by our Head Office and your comments have been passed to them, however there are different packages available to suit different requirements.
Thank you again for your review.

Nice enough for an overnight booked at very short notice. Nothing special but ok. A coupl of staff not really up on english therefore having to repeat a lot or re-phrase but all staff pleasant and helpful. Breakfast disappointing. Hot buffet only offered salty scrambled egg, beans and sausage. Bed uncomfortable due to thin mattress and some may require earplugs as near to busy'ish road. Nothing bad and yet nothing special. Ideal for families. Would stay again due to location.

Stayed here for 2 nights and was excellent value. Situated right near the park and ride and a very quick hop into town. On the right side of town for Blenheim Palace as well. Staff were very helpful and friendly - especially at breakfast, where they gave our 18 year old son a discreet round of applause when he finally made it down to the table! Rooms were clean and despite our room facing the main road there was no traffic noise at all. Highly recommended.

Stayed 2 nights when visiting Oxford and was such better value than a city centre hotel even taking into account the Taxi fares ( £10 to city) , although if you chose you could use Park & Ride which is next door to the Hotel. The leisure facilities are very good , the food was good , the on-site parking was useful and the overall value good

The one thing that stands out at this hotel is the level of service & commitment of the staff. They set their standards high and do a great job of maintaining them. The hotel itself is great, rooms are clean & comfortable. The wine is a little pricey and I have had better pints of Guinness but the food is superb, I challenge anyone to find a better coronation chicken. Whenever I am in the area I look forward to staying here, there are decent hotels closer to where I come on business but I make a point of styling here as it is far superior.
