Great hotel with excellent staff, always willing to help and very friendly ,ideal place to stay if your visiting Oxford ,short walk into the town with parking at the hotel .Food was very good especially the breakfast great way to start the day.Would definitely stop here again when in Oxford

Easy to use your car to visit the local area or bus into City. Executive room was well appointed, clean and comfortable and bathroom modern and clean. The restaurant served quality food at a reasonable price and was not too crowded. The breakfasts had a lot of choice from cereal to a hot serve your self selection that was restocked regularly. The bus stop for a 10 minute ride into Oxford centre; so much to see and do here; is only a 5 minute walk away with a very regular bus service. Car parking at the Hotel is free for the length of your stay but no longer than that. Outside these time you will be charged but that ensures that paying guests always have off street parking. Near to the city centre but peaceful.Staff were polite and helpful. We had to leave a day early due to unforeseen family circumstances but the Manager, Keith, sorted out a refund. Would definitely stay here again

We had a really good stay here. The rooms were fine, the staff polite and the food excellent. The hotel is only 5 min walk from the bus stop which goes to the city centre in about 10 min. The taxi fare from the station is about £8.00. On our last night, we were going into town but were too tired. We ate in the restaurant and it was excellent. Thank goodness we did not go into town. The two breakfast we have had were hot, plenty of choice and well cooked I would come back here anytime.

Came with friends twice recently for lunch, once for Sunday lunch and the other mid-week. On Sundays they do a fabulous set lunch, £13.95 for 3 courses, including a roast. There is plenty of choice for everyone. During the week they have a set menu (slightly more expensive) and a good a la carte menu. The food and service is very good. It's not an overly crowed place, so if you you're looking for good food in a quiet, relaxed atmosphere than definitely give it a go!

I paid only £65 for a twin room with breakfast - unbeatable value in Oxford. Free parking too! Decor and furnishings were nice in the public rooms and the bedroom. Only real issue was that the shower hose needed a jolly good scrub.

Lovely quiet setting (however, we did go out of term time so no idea what it is like when the students return) & only a mile or so from Oxford city centre so easy to walk there & back. However, if you can avoid it do not opt for breakfast, it is dire (unless of course you enjoy cold or very lukewarm scrambled eggs & beans for breakfast). Buffet style & I am afraid there is nothing positive I can report - we are veggie & certainly did not get accommodated but even our meat eating friends were unhappy. Serving staff surly & non communicative. Arrived a few hours early so was charged £2 parking although we were spending nearly £500 between us for a 2 night stay! Room had 3 large cobwebs over the bed & there was what appeared to be mould in the shower (don't expect a power shower) We were on the ground floor & staff were continually banging around outside the room from 6/7 am - not sure what they were doing but it woke us up & continued so we could not get back to sleep. Don't like leaving negative reviews but I am afraid for what they charge it was poor.

We stayed over the Xmas period for our annual visit to the area and this particular hotel,,clean staff polite,our room was good but the only negative was the bath creaked loudly when taking a shower and the decor looked tired and needs updating paint cracked on ceiling and walls ,overall we like the location and the hotel having visited many times before!

Stayed here for 2 nights with my partner. The hotel is around a 20/30 minute walk from the city centre. The walk into town is beautiful and you pass various colleges on the way. The hotel was modern, clean and warm. The room had good tea making facilities and everything else you would need. In my opinion the mattress was very firm which is fine if you are used to this. Parking is great and was a key reason we chose this hotel. We managed to park inside in the hotels front car park. The only down side to this hotel was unfortunately the noise between rooms. The walls/ceilings are very thin and you can hear other customers in their rooms; going to the toilet, talking, tv, walking around Etc. We were in a ground floor room and could regularly hear people in the room above walking around, closing doors etc. The ceiling was creeking massively and made it impossible to sleep without wearing ear plugs/ until the room above had gone to to bed themselves- a real shame. This is more than likely a structural problem with the hotel so I’m unsure whether it could be fixed or whether it is better on higher floors? Because of this we didn’t sleep much. All in all however we had a great stay in Oxford.

Stayed for a two night stay, weekend break for my partners birthday weekend. Very friendly greeting which included all information without asking. When we next passed the reception desk, the person who checked us in asked if the room was ok and we were happy with it. Car parking on site, but this is limited. However, we arrived at 2.30pm for a 3pm check in and there was spaces. There is also plenty of permit parking spaces outside the hotel which the hotel has a pass for. The street was a quiet street as well. Room a good base and has everything you need as well as being clean. Bed was comfortable. The hotel is a 20/30min walk to town which is easy to find your way. Bus stop just down the road as well as taxi was reasonable price. However, there is one big big downside. That is the noise between the rooms. We noticed it first at nighttime and it was like the ceiling was going to come though! Partly this was because the person above us was walking about all night, had tv on loud, tap running all night and while hotel cannot do anything about other people being inconsiderate the walls/floor definitely allows sound to travel. We were on the ground floor, so perhaps this made it worse. Shame, as otherwise couldn’t really fault this place.

Stayed for two nights between Christmas and new year, not a massive room but clean and tidy and the bed was comfortable, perfect location to walk into city centre, would definitely stay again. My only issue was my room 30 was next to cleaners cupboard so in morning was a little noisy
