Holiday Inn Express Oxford-Kassam Stadium

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel is located at the Kassam Stadium. Efficient check-in. Very nice room. Comfortable bed. Buffet breakfast was a surprising bonus included in the rate. The hotel is convenient for buses into Oxford City. Nearby is a Vue Cinema, oriental restaurant and a Frankie and Bennys. We went to The Kings Arms nearby for dinner on two nights and enjoyed the food there. The hotel allows guests to bring in takeaway meals and provides cutlery etc but they require the food to be eaten in the breakfast dining area to avoid spillage in bedrooms. We would recommend this for a good value stay near Oxford .Convenient access from nearby A34 leadingfrom M40.

We stayed here 6th and 7th April. Reception staff very friendly and helpful. Hotel room was nice and comfortable. We used the swimming pool, jacuzzi and sauna room. It was nice to actually have the use of these facilities. Our first night we had a meal in the restaurant, it was good value for money. Breakfast was good as well. Overall all staff we came into contact with were very friendly, polite and helpful. We will definitely come back here.

Hotel is easily accessible and close to public transport. Plenty of parking spaces. Clean rooms but the bed in the room we were on in felt quite unsafe. The breakfast buffet was minimal and there were no vegetarian options available and only scrambled eggs.. The fresh fruit advertised was apples on one day and a banana another. Not a great choice. Not a great selection for someone who doesn’t eat bread or meat. Overall the hotel is pretty good value for money but the breakfast choice could do with an update On the plus side. Right next to the hotel is a cinema, bowling, adventure golf and a Frankie & Bennys so plenty to do

A typical HIX with friendly helpful staff. We stayed whilst visiting Oxford and the Mini tour. Plenty of car parking. Easy access just follow signs to the stadium. Hotel a little tired but they can’t all be brand new. Clean room and bed. Good breakfast.

Reception staff friendly,polite and helpful. Breakfast area clean. Not too busy. Good selection of hot/cold food. 1st room smelt strongly of cigarette smoke so we were moved to another room without fuss. Room smart and quiet. Ate at OXFORD before booking in. Cinema complex. Bowling. 2 restaurants walking distance. This is out of Oxford hence better price.

Great budget chain of hotels. The staff are very freindly and helpful. The rooms have everything you need with seating area, television and kingsize bed with a choice of firm or soft pillows. Breakfast is buffet style and very plentiful with a huge selection all included in your room price.

One of the worst Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed. It’s a shame I had to give such ratings to one of my favourite brands and it’s with a lot of sadness that I do this. I am a Platinum IHG member and as part of my membership l am entitled to a late check out if there is availability. On the night I checked in I was told I can have a late checkout and in the morning things changed because I politely requested for an iron from the front desk and the staff who brought the iron up was very pissed for having to bring us the iron. He was more pissed finding out it was a black customer, so things changed from there and he said I couldn’t have my late checkout. When I requested to speak to the manager he claimed manager was too busy, so I took the manager’s details and emailed him. The manager then agreed I have my late checkout (what a privilege?) and when I did finally checked out they refused to give me an invoice claiming because I paid partially with my rewards points I am not entitled for an invoice. I love the IHG brand and despite our horrible experience I will continue using the brand!

Due to an admin error/ husband's mistake... we came to Oxford to the Vue cinema. Thought we would make a weekend of it. Chose the Holiday Inn for location and price. Clean and comfortable room. Friendly and helpful staff. Only downside is the breakfast area is crammed and although free with the room there was limited choice.

I arrived at 9pm to check in, The car park is large and I don’t believe you would struggle for a parking space. This can typically be the case when you are checking in, late. Check in was easy. There were two coach loads of tourists Just in front of me, but the staff had the nouse to keep them all with one receptionist and leave the other free for guests not with the 70 strong party. Disappointed to find the hotel doesn’t do food. However, I wasn’t hoodwinked by the hotel. It was an assumption hotels did food and I was looking forward to some after a long day. (There is a Chinese and a Franky and Bennys around the corner next to the bowling plex and cinema). However it was too late to catch either. The room was nice, clean and modern. TV and the usual mod cons. The bathroom was nice also and included shower gel and soap. Two lifts serviced the various floors. It was mentioned breakfast was from 6.30am which suited me as I needed to be away by 7. I arrived down at 6.20 and it seemed like half the hotel were sitting down and eating. There was the usual selection of hot and cold food. However, the breakfast area is small and as it was busy with the bus tourists and other work men, it was tight and there was a queue with no particular order for all items.

Stayed here one night to attend a conference in the Football stadium next door. Holiday Inn Expresses are very formulaic so you know what you are going to get. This hotel was quiet, the room was good and the breakfast was fine. Would I stay there again - yes and I guess that say's it all really.
