We booked 2 rooms at The Head of The River Pub/Hotel middle of May 2013 as we were doing a tour for 6 days with relatives from Canada. The location at first is a little miss leading when getting driving directions as it seems as though you are quite a distance from the City , but you are actually just on the edge , and just a 5 minute walk to Christ College & Cathedral. The Pub is quite old , not sure when it was built but a long time ago , set right on the river with plenty of outside seating , and a cosy atmosphere inside. The staff were all very helpful & friendly. To get to your rooms you go up a tiny staircase ( No Lift ) the staff did offer to carry any cases but we managed ok ourselves. The rooms were clean & nicely presented , but being an old building the floors do slope in different directions , beds very comfortable & clean. Breakfast you had a small choice of cereals , juices , the Full English breakfast was cooked to order which was great plus you had some other choices as well. Being a Pub we thought it would be noisy but this wasn't the case. Parking is limited to a couple of spaces and has a tight access. We stayed 17th to 19th May 2013 , the only let down was we thought £153.00 per room per night was expensive , but I guess you way this up with limited Hotels in Oxford and it's location.
