Pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the nice setting of the hotel - set back from the road in its own grounds. It is much nicer than the pictures of the front suggest. Inside, you get a pleasing feeling of a large hotel with a foyer, bars, dining area etc. and the reception staff were most helpful. We arrived on a stifling hot day and were given room 405 which was directly over an extremely noisy air vent which would have been a nightmare with the window open (and was noisy enough with the window shut) but we were happily moved to a lovely, quiet four-poster room (217) with a great view looking out over fields. The bar area is pleasant enough, though drinks not cheap. Extremely easy to get into the city - there is a bus stop within feet of the hotel entrance, with buses going very regularly and really cheap and taking a matter of minutes to get to the centre. It is probably a 10 - 15 minute walk. Be careful getting the bus back as we didn't recognise our stop and got off 5 stops too late. Nice pool and jacuzzi helped make this a very relaxing stay. Breakfast was fine, though we chose not to eat here in the evening based on other reviews on this site. Also, there are some really good places to eat in Oxford that are worth checking out - Jamie's Italian is superb as is Wagamama's. Would definitely stay here again.
