“Good Website Shame about Hotel”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We stopped here 1 night the room had a broken sink with sharp edges the walls in the room looked as if world war 3 had splattered all over them the window could not be locked in a downstairs room! The main desk in the room was dangerous as wobbled severely on its legs up to 200mm in both directions!!!!
The restaurant service was very slow as only 1 member of staff and we presume that with pace of food only 1 chef. The food was average the sauces overpowered the food.
Generally the hotel is becoming shabby and in need of a refurbishment.
The member of staff on the front desk was more interested in the computer than dealing with customer requests.
Would not consider stopping here again, we have stopped in Travel Lodges at £29/night that are far better than this hotel.

Our family thought the service and food was fantastic. The staff are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We had a great time there and have already booked a return visit. Great location for Oxford and the oldest town in Britain called Abingdon-on-Thames.

Good hotel with lovely views out back. Spacious family room with large bathroom which was a little dated. Would be more tempted to stay again if breakfast was included in price. Overall enjoyed our stay. Denise Dean

Stayed one night, spacious, clean comfortable room. Nice bathroom, but poor shower pressure.
Breakfast was well worth the £10.50.
Room came with a free taxi ride into and out of oxford - what a great idea and certainly and incentive for staying there.

Good value for money and courteous, helpful staff.

Stayed for one night with my partner. We arrived an hour early but wasnt a problem and got our keys for room. Friendly man on desk asked if we needed any help with bags, but we were ok. He told us where room was. Room was ok, we had a corner room and had windows both sides of the room. The bathroom was clean although the cleaners had left a used shower gel and soap in bath. But wasnt major issue.
Shower goes from boiling hot to very cold within minutes and kept needed to change temp.
Nice comfy beds.
Nothing to fault really.
The park & ride is a 5 min drive and we got the bus into town during day and at night. Nice location.

Would stay here again, i managed to get hotel on offer at £110 a night, but i think its normally £125 which i think is a bit much.

We didnt try food or drink as we ate out in oxford.

We stayed for one night, 18 Feb. the two rooms we had were lovely and comfortable. They felt like really nice bedrooms rather than the typical hotel room. All the staff we met were friendly and helpful - they brought me an extra heater when I felt a bit cool at dinner. Overall the food was very good although the risotto could have been hotter. Excellent location. Easy and quick to get to park and ride. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms with view of garden at back would be nice.

Room was very nice, breakfast was great with the local eggs. Friendly, courteous staff. Location was excellent for getting into town without the hustle and bustle. Hotel was clean and inviting, enjoyed the small living room for a quiet drink after a meal out in town.
