“Good location for Oxford tour”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Hotel was very clean and tidy, food was good and half decent bar selection. Very handy for the park and ride just a couple of minutes walk away, so no need to worry about driving into Oxford itself. Room was large and spotlessly clean with no noise from the road system/junction when the window was shut. International clientele mostly. Car park was decent size and secure.

Room Tip: Saved by booking on a deal online with the Holiday Inn - no cheaper anywhere else.

Stayed two nights for a family gathering.

Family room was functional but small for 4 with 2 small pull out beds for the kids

New menu was a real let down, expensive, little choice & nothing for the vegetarians in our group

Pool was fine for the children, enough room & not too busy

Ideally located for the Pear Tree Park n Ride into Oxford.

Hotel is very clean and up to date. Full hot breakfast was super. Buffet style, but good. The rooms are nice, clean and spacious. A bit far from town, but buses go by every 8 minutes. The wifi is a bit expensive, 16 pounds for 24 hours. A bit steep for sure but fast enough to stre Netflix, for example. Overall, good place to rest.

An average room with basic facilities. The bathroom amenities were pants, why have shampoo and no conditioner? Would a cheap disposable shower cap be too hard? These are things, in my opinion, that you would expect at a business styled hotel. Room very clean (as it should be in any hotel anyway). Fine for one night but no more, especially because of the high price of the restaurant, bar menu and costly wi-fi ..ridiculous. Oh and don't you just love it when you can hear the rooms either side of you using the loo all night long.

Stayed overnight at the hotel for an evening function. The staff were friendly,room was good and very clean. Room service was excellent particularly as after having ordered I called to have the food delivered later at a specific time (went to the main bar to watch the cup final). It arrived exactly when requested. The menu was varied although I thought most items quite expensive. Be careful if you stray from the house wine in the bar. Ask for the price first. Thought the rooms quite expensive bearing in mind it's not right in the very centre of Oxford. Overall it's what you would expect from a major Hotel chain.

We stayed at this Holiday. Inn a month ago. It was quite reasonably priced for where it is. We have stayed at many Holiday Inns throughout Uk and I have to say that this was the best by far. Not because of the rooms etc(which are firly standard) but because the staff were fabulous. From the greeting we got when we checked in, to the staff at the bar. Just so friendly. Which les be honest - isn't something you always get these days.
If you want to spend time in Oxford but not pay the prices then give this a try. It's right next door to the park and ride which takes no time to get you right into te centre of Oxford. We only stayed one night but took the park and ride into town that night. It dropped us right outside Jamie Oliver's Italian restaurant. It runs till around 11pm so we got it for way back too.

Well located for Begbroke science park.
Room too warm.
Breakfast ok quite good choice
Didn't spend a lot of time anyway. So overall ok.
I would recommend this for a business trip. Consistent with other Holiday inn hotels.
