We arrived late, and found the place full of young people getting drunk - not a great intro! There was a problem with the room allocation, but one of the reception staff who was really good , took over and sorted us out quickly and they gave us a mobility handicapped room, which was adequate. The next morning, the manager upgraded us, and sorted out the issue.
It appears that there is a change of management and they are recruiting some new staff. The restaurant staff were outstanding.
Overall the hotel is really well placed for access to and from Oxford, and is much better value than many of the upgraded boarding houses around the city. The facilities - such as the fitness complex, and outdoor seating areas - were great, even the large size towels were super and fluffy. The only drawback was the charge for internet use, even by WiFi in the public areas. These were around £6 for an hour.
I would have no hesitation about staying there again and recommending the hotel.
