The hotel appears to have been renovated since my last stay. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern with big beds and coffee making facilities. The new shower rooms are great. The hotel is about a 20-25 minute walk in to the centre or a short taxi/bus ride away.
Good hotel, short walk into centre. Nice spacious room. But, eat somewhere else, evening meal let down by poorly combined ingredients and presentation. You have to pay for parking outside the time of you check in and the 11am departure at £2 per hour. This is understandable and fair but you need to know. Oxford is a great location for a short break and I can recommend the Pitt River museum.
Wife and I stayed again, in February taking advantage of the sale price.We asked and got the same room as previously, which is on the ground floor and looking out over the lovely garden, even at that time of year. Parking is easy. I cannot fault the hotel. The staff are extremely friendly, and efficient. The room we had was warm, clean and comfortable bed, and kept that way throughout our 3 day stay. Even the bath robes were changed daily! We ate in the dining room on 2 occasions. Choice between fixed price menu or normal menu items. Food and service very good. Chicken pie huge! and delicious The hotel suits are purposes as we are pensioners and are happy to be out of the city at night. Excellent bus services, free for us with a bus pass. We would happily return.
It is not often I say this but the only complaint I have with this hotel is that the water was too hot. Just to rinse your hands meant filling the hand basin with a mixture of hot and cold instead of running your hands under the tap. In my opinion the water was dangerously hot so be warned. Other than that the hotel was very good. A 20 min walk into the city (flat) or 5 mins from the bus stop. Also 5 mins from the Hop-on-hop-off tour bus. We upgraded to an executive room but, other than the bath-robes, I didn't see anything different from a standard room. Still only 1 chair so one of us had to sit on the bed. Breakfast was lovely (didn't eat dinner there) and staff were helpful when we had a problem. Not many parking spaces. Parking on street available but restricted during the day. If you do not eat a the hotel you have to go back into the city to eat. Nowhere in the immediate vicinity.
It's not in the middle of town, but easy to reach everything. We did the hop on hop off bus, but the real treat was Blackwell's bookshop - wow! The standard of the service and food in the restaurant was exceptional and the rooms very comfortable.
Everything very good , staff efficient and friendly , room good , clean and modern , breakfast good all you could want again staff very friendly and efficient. Parking a bonus in Oxford and a short walk to centre , will definitely stay again .
Three friends away. It must have been refurbed, everything had the new smell. Lovely rooms, massive tv, comfy twin beds which sufficed as we all had our own rooms. Staff were exemplary, happy from the maintenance man up to the reception guys. Great choice for breakfast, cereals, full English, continental. Would definately return.. I must say, I'm English but I witnessed a couple and a single lady being rude to the staff. If it was not for my friends I would have said something. No need to be rude, you tar us with the same brush.
Very expensive for a basic room no frills and basic. Breakfast was ok. Small bar with only bottled beer. Ok if you just want to rest sleep and watch the world go by. Free parking and WIFI Rooms tidy Looks like hotel is being expanded and close to town
Stayed here for 4 nights on a business trip and was very impressed with the hotel. Very smart and modern, all the staff were extremely pleasant and happy to help. Breakfasts were excellent with a good variety and plentiful supply. Bedrooms were well appointed - I had an executive room with bathrobes, full tea and coffee making facilities and ironing board and iron. Hairdryer was also included as well as plenty of good quality toiletries. we found parking not a problem and it was a 20 minute stroll into the centre of Oxford with numerous bars and places to eat. I would stay here again and would recommend this hotel.
On the plus side it is clean and I would guess has been recently redecorated. Breakfast staff friendly. About 15 minutes walk from City Centre. On the negative, the shower in our room 204 would not stay in place and kept turning toward the wall giving the wall a shower rather than me. An alarm went off in the middle of the night. Parking is only free if you are only there between booking in and booking out times. We arrived at 12:00 on Sunday and asked reception if we could leave our car there while we went into Oxford. (Something we have done with many hotels in many places with no problem. )We were told fhat we could but as check in is not till 3:00 p.m. We would have to pay £2/ hour. Two things wrong with this. 1. There was only one other car on the car park so it wasn't as though they were short of spaces. 2. We took our car into Oxford and only got charged £2.50 for the rest of the day. So although they advertise free parking it is only partly true. Probably will not stay here again.
