It was a great location with tons of kitschy, historical charm!

Such a unique hotel given it is a converted prison.

The location of the room directly across from Castle Mound was a joy. The room and bed were wonderful. We could have used chairs in the room, however. There was nowhere to sit. The bathroom was poorly caulked and the toilet leaked onto the floor.

No AC in the room and it was very hot. Given the price I assumed AC would be a given.

great location... need maintenance, only one elevator works!... no AC in all rooms!!

Well renovated old prison/castle, close to train station and old town. Safe for women traveling alone. Extremely helpful staff.

A creative hotel using the old castle prison but in an upscale fun way. Very conveniently located.

Nice surprise. Very warm welcome from staff at check-in and also in the restaurant. Only slight hitch was at check-out when there was a substantial meal charge was mistakenly added to my room. This was corrected quickly but it did cause me a momentary concern.

Great history with this hotel that occupies part of a former prison next to the Oxford Castle. Certainly unique and well done. Comfortable hotel, great location and helpful staff.

I love this hotel, nice size room, great products, excellent staff but keep in mind, it was an old prison so windows are at a minimum...overall, would recommend.

Great location in the centre of Oxford, good price, clean rooms, friendly and efficient staff. The conversion was very well done, with some quirky features left. Room was quiet, bed comfy, would stay here again.

Very cool hotel and at a great price through Orbitz

I visited on business, but had a chance to mix it with pleasure. Loved the low-key brasserie and bar, delicious food, and attentive staff. One night I was hungry in the middle of the night and ordered room service. The kitchen was out of my first choice, but the chef made something special (and gluten-free!) for me and delivered it at 3 am. I was impressed! Also, although I arrived early and had not called ahead to advice the staff, they were able to provide me with a clean room right away. That made my transition to the time zone coming from an overnight flight much easier!
