Ethos Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Ethos staff were lovely, the complimentary drinks and snacks in the bar on arrival were a lovely added bonus, the room was clean and had everything we needed. Plus the location is great for exploring Oxford.

Very good. In a lovely quiet neighbourhood. Noisy occupants in the room next door though! They had a dog which barked in the middle of the night. That was a shame because, other than that it was great. It was a 10 minute walk to central Oxford. We were offered a complimentary glass of Champagne at Ethos Cafe opposite (which is where you check in and that can be a little confusing).

Nice hotel close to the centre of Oxford but a bit pricey for a room next to the street. Great welcome and service; very comfortable bed. I would recommend it for anyone wanting ground floor accommodation or traveling with small children or pets.

Hotel in great location with very good accomodation Very welcoming staff Complimentary drink a good idea Large spacious room with option to self cater Breakfast very good Would have liked to sample evening menu

Good location. Stone baked pizzas and breakfast good. Accommodation poor and housekeeping appalling. We booked a double room and it had 2 singles pushed together with a duvet that did not cover it fully. The heater was so loud it drowned out the TV. The room was not cleaned during the day, in fact it didn't look like the rug had been vacuumed for weeks. The toilet was not cleaned the day we went into Oxford and used mugs on the worktop were put away without being cleaned. Milk was not replenished for hot drinks.

This well-located charming B&B was very well-equipped, clean and comfortable. The smiling staff provided excellent quality service. We were greeted with a complimentary glass of Prosecco at reception in the pub, which is also where the delicious breakfast was served. The Ethos goes out of its way to make your stay enjoyable and we look forward to returning.

Absolutely recommend this fantastic B and B. Lovely accommodation with all necessities . The cafe/bar has wonderful, amazing and hilarious staff! They are so friendly! Highly recommend!! Kara and Aaron are delightful.

I arrived a cafe, I got a key and went 100 meters down the street. The room had access directly from the street. I had noe hotel feeling. The room was mediocree. Later I ate a breakfast: 14 £ for white bread, jam and coffee.This "hotel" is overrated and overpriced. The personell behaved in a rude manner. this is not a boutique hotel

I stayed here on the night pf my Office Christmas party. Check in was nice and easy, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the room is extremely comfortable & quiet considering it is so close to the City Centre.

Stayed here for my partner's work night out. Seamless check in. Checked in in the cafe opposite the hotel. Welcome drink was a lovely touch. Chocolates and biscuits in the room with tea & coffee facilities. Clean bathroom. Spacious room. Good location for the town. Breakfast service a little slow the next day. Coffee was luke warm
