work trip

Would not recommend Thu, Jan 15, 2015
The hotel was fine, though I thought a bit over priced for what you got. The bed linens were very coarse/scratchy and the room was very hot. I asked the staff about it twice and they said there was nothing they could do about it as the heat in the room was already off and the AC throughout the entire hotel was turned off. I opened the window as much as I could and didn't sleep with any of the blankets but it was still too hot to sleep well.

Good location

Would not recommend Tue, Jul 16, 2013
The room was tiny. The bed barely wide enough for double occupancy. The Airconditioning was barely functional. The kettle provided in the room didn't work and no replacement was provided in spite of the complaint.

Good experience. Good views from room. friendly staff and helpful. Good location, walking distance to everything. Historical notes about the building , of interest. Bathrooms are new and updated, but the rooms need some update.

Big let down - not 4* worthy

Would not recommend Fri, Dec 28, 2012
Pubes on toilet bath mat Moved rooms after first night as fifth room too noisy. Second room far too hot. Staff unable to fix. Cleaning staff left damp cloth on bed and didn't make bed. Also left bottle of cleaning chemicals in the bathroom. No Hair drier in second room - hair drier brought to room but it was broken. Second hair drier brought to room with no apology and with attitude. Asked for glasses to have a drink in our room - we were sent to the bar to wait for them ourselves. Reused mini-jam at breakfast. Must pay extra for parking! All of the above (except for noise which can't be helped) not what we expect for four stars.

Lovely Hotel, Great Location

Would recommend Wed, Apr 6, 2011
We were in Oxford to visit my daughter, who is a graduate student at Lincoln College, Oxford University. The hotel was literally steps from her flat, and within ten minutes walking distance of almost everything in Oxford. It sits at the corner of High Street and Merton, so wonderful coffee shops, restaurants and shopping are mere steps away. The hotel is clean, comfortable and well appointed, and although we did not eat here, we did enjoy a late night cocktail at the bar. We rarely use our hotel for anything other than sleep/showering/dressing, and we found the accommodations to be quite adequate for those purposes. Our main requirement was proximity to my daughter as we did not want to rent a car, and we did in fact walk everywhere with ease.

Rather Strange Stay

Would not recommend Sun, Nov 21, 2010
Odd. I know the Eastgate to be a good hotel, but my stay there this time was very odd. Nice room, but the bed was an uncovered box-spring on the floor and a mattress with a covered duvet. No other linens. Odd. I also had the feeling that no one knew I was staying there. When I phoned the desk? No answer. Odd. Still, the price was good, the room clean and very nice, the location grand.

Dining

Be sure to have your breakfast in the restaurant at The University Church of St. Mary's. Amazing organic/free range full English breakfast for less than £5. Two minutes walk from the Eastgate and well worth it.

Fine old hotel spoiled

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 6, 2009
I've stayed there a number of times since 1980. New owners have spoiled a fine hotel. Now a slick, cold, business oriented hotel for Japanese visitors. Tiny room (actually a single with a double bed against one wall, sloping ceiling preventing sitting or getting up, three feet to bathroom door, no space for clothes or bags).They failed to call us for a six o'clock wake up to catch our return flight. No apologies. [...]

Dining

Covered Market haas everything. Wonderful display of meats, cheeses, flowers. Great pubs with good food, especially The Turf, one of the oldest in England. Edinburgh Woolen Mills great place to buy sweaters. Avoid hotel restaurant; VERY expensive.
