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.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Parking was expensive but not many hotels in town have parking.
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 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.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Close to the train and all of Oxford's attractions
