Book into a 3-star Oxford hotel located on the high street & opposite Magdalen College. The Mercure Eastgate Hotel is a townhouse in central Oxford. A converted coaching inn, the hotel retains its original atmosphere, complemented by contemporary décor, air conditioning and internet access. All 64 guest rooms are distinctive and individual, and have an elegance in keeping with the beautiful city. Of all the rooms, the Ruskin Suite is the signature, refurbished in the style of a Don's bedroom.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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. [...]
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
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.
