We have visited Oxford a few times as a couple and also in a group and quickly found that parking in central Oxford is a non starter. The Holiday Inn is a couple of miles outside Central Oxford but public transport is excellent to and from here with 'park and ride' next door. Parking at the hotel is free and being pensioners we also get free travel on public transport which we take full advantage of .
The hotel is modern and spacious and well maintained and is reasonably priced. We do not take advantage of the sports/gym/swimming facilities which we should really as they are tip top. The hotel restaurant we found to be a bit on the pricey side with a fairly restricted menu but with so many restaurants in Oxford itself this was not a major drawback.
This hotel is a must for tourists to Oxford for several reasons. Firstly it is situated close to Blenheim Palace which is a must for a visit and being so expansive cannot really be seen in a day. Secondly Oxford is Mecca for Morse fans and is home to so many well known buildings.
The Reception Staff are very knowledgeable and know the Oxford area well which from a tourist point can be a godsend when seeking advice.
These are the reasons (briefly) why I would recommend this hotel and we will return.
