This hotel has some poor reviews which I was aware of before going so I was not expecting much but the city was full so..... I was nervous.
I need not have been. It is true that the first time you go into the establishment you have to go into a rather testosterone laden bar in order to register, however once the business was done I was shown to my room and was very pleasantly surprised.
The staff were friendly, it was clean, the room was spacious and airy and once you have your key there is no need to go near the bar again unless you want to as there is a separate entrance. It is an old style hotel with a winding staircase and only about 3 or 4 rooms on each floor. I was on the top floor in a room that only had a washbasin and no toilet. I was aware of this before arriving. It was only a short walk to the bathroom so i did not find this too difficult. Due to the old nature of the building this hotel would be unable to cater for wheelchair users or anyone who finds stairs trying.
My room looked out over the coach depot which is behind the hotel and there was some noise although I did not find it bothersome. I think if you want a quiet hotel you do not book one in the center of a vibrant city! The bed was comfortable and there was tea and coffee facilities in the room plus TV. The breakfast the next day was absolutely delicious and the staff were friendly there too.
So I had a good stay and overall would definitely stay there again as it is reasonably priced for Oxford and the location of this hotel is the best thing about it!
