Great hotel for academic visitor

Would recommend Sun, Feb 15, 2015
We had a lovely stay at the Macdonald House. Grand old hotel. Beautiful entry way beautiful breakfast room - love the staircase, love the high ceilings. The bathroom was the best - just beautiful. The only problem we had was we had the room right over the front entrance so the lights on the front of the hotel reflected into our room. But the blackout curtains did a good job of blocking most of the light. We would stay there again in an instant if we go back to Oxford.

Would not recommend Wed, Nov 20, 2013
I won't go back this hotel again. The staffs look down their customer. The room is not comfortable and also noisy even in midnight. We couldn't sleep.It's not worst for four stars hotel. You not get what you pay!!! I should believe the earlier reviews.

Great experience

Would recommend Mon, Jul 9, 2012
Great location and staff was wonderful. Food was very good. Great place for a cocktail. The shortbread served with the Tea was to " die for".

Entertainment hint

Tours of Oxford very short walk. Footprint Tours the best.

Small room, unintentional wake ups everyday.

Would not recommend Sun, Jun 3, 2012
Woken up by some loud noises each morning by chimes and a recorded voice. Worse shower I have ever had in England. Pressure one moment then slowly down to a dribble then the cycle would repeat. Simple small room. Nice location and friendly staff. Eventually left for another hotel in town for the remainder of my trip.

Money saver

Parking was expensive but not many hotels in town have parking.

So so getaway

Would not recommend Tue, Feb 7, 2012
My husband and I love the comfortable room, excellent location and the friendly staff. It has indeed make our stay enjoyable. However, being a 5 star hotel, we were quite surprise it charged extra for use of the thermal facilities i.e. sauna, jaccuzzi and steam room and it doesn't have a swimming pool in the hotel. We were also surprise to find out that the jaccuzzi is not warm! All in all, it is a bit disturbing because I booked this hotel mainly for it's thermal facilities.

Does not deserve the fifth star

Would not recommend Fri, Dec 16, 2011
completely overrated - one can tell that it is the only five star hotel in the city. miserable heating in certain rooms not very clean (and this in a five star hotel!!!) no bartender in the hotel bar when he is needed (at 11PM) for a wellness hotel the spa closes by far to early unfriendly check-out after complaining very average and to expensive breakfast - service unfriendly at the breakfast friendly house stuff we asked for a sushi place - the answer of the concierge was - there is no sushi place in Oxford - thank's good the world wide web knew better - YoSushi Oxford the hotel is a labyrinth - some rooms can only be reached after a real odyssey.

Great Hotel!

Would recommend Sat, Oct 9, 2010
Great hotel in a perfect location. Truly a 4-5 star hotel. Rooms are small but what else do you expect in a 200 year old building? Bathroom is small but brand new. You get what you pay for and you pay a lot here. If you like to pay for a top tier hotel and get the service and restaurants then this is for you. We liked it.
