We booked a two night 'deal' including breakfast and evening meal, which overall was good value for money. Our greeting at reception was warm and helpful, the included meals were delicious and very well presented, the staff helpful and efficient. We like 'old fashioned' so the very traditional style of this hotel suited. The 'but' was about the room, labelled Pembroke (not the same as the 'Pembroke' image on the hotel's gallery though which is odd), it was a good size, had excellent storage and a very comfortable bed, very traditional in style which suits us but it was a little shabby and came with a substantial cobweb. The lighting was very poor, nice for relaxing in but not to see anything clearly, the bathroom lighting little better sadly. There was intrusive noise from the plumbing which seemed to be from the power shower system. The major drawback for me was that this room is on the second floor in a part of the building that does not have lift access. This wasn't made clear on booking and doesn't seem to be on the web site, help was offered with the luggage but that didn't detract from my struggle with the stairs. A major plus point is the location, it is a 10-15 minute walk into Oxford, on good bus routes with ample parking, so overall the location worked very well for us. Would we stay there again? Possibly for the location and the food if we could get a good price and be sure we had lift access to the room.
