We stayed at this hotel for a three night break over Easter. The package was great value for money with breakfast and dinner included with the added benefits of free car parking (plenty of spaces) and free Wifi.
Only a ten minute walk into Oxford.
The hotel has lots of kerb appeal and is set back off the road. Obviously very popular given the number of functions taking place and returning guests.
Reception and Housekeeping were prepared for the onslaught of early check-ins for Easter – a nice touch.
We booked the Donnington Room in Eastwyke House. Beautifully renovated and a roll top bath. Unfortunately, I didn’t think about the low ceilings and door frames for my very tall husband!
The House is generally very quiet (we have read the many reviews referring to noisy guests in the hotel!). The hotel offers an evening turndown service in the House however this amounted to little more than ‘turning down’ the bed. In my opinion, don’t do it at all unless you are going to make it special.
There were nice touches in the room such a hot chocolate, chocolate bars and Clarins toiletries.
Have a look at the stunning photographs of Oxford in the rooms and public areas.
Service in the Bar was very good. A little bit pricey but certainly cheaper than the lunchtime drinks we had in Woodstock on Sunday lunchtime! Please can the stain on the TV screen be cleaned or a new TV installed.
The service and quality of food in the Restaurant was much better than we expected given this was a very busy weekend. We particularly enjoyed the salmon and beef. My husband had the chocolate brownie each night. Service on Sunday night was decidedly iffy. We and a number of other tables were left for at least 40 minutes before finally being approached by the Maitre D. The restaurant was quiet and well staffed, so the only explanation is poor organisation.
DEFINITELY go for an early breakfast………….Saturday at 9:30am was like a ‘bun fight’……..best avoided.
In all, a lovely weekend in a nice hotel at a good price.
Would we return? Yes.
