Mercure Oxford Eastgate Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room was clean and quiet. The receptionists were very friendly and helpful. Brilliant!

The hotel was fine, though I thought a bit over priced for what you got. The bed linens were very coarse/scratchy and the room was very hot. I asked the staff about it twice and they said there was nothing they could do about it as the heat in the room was already off and the AC throughout the entire hotel was turned off. I opened the window as much as I could and didn't sleep with any of the blankets but it was still too hot to sleep well.

Good experience. Good views from room. friendly staff and helpful. Good location, walking distance to everything. Historical notes about the building , of interest. Bathrooms are new and updated, but the rooms need some update.

We were in Oxford to visit my daughter, who is a graduate student at Lincoln College, Oxford University. The hotel was literally steps from her flat, and within ten minutes walking distance of almost everything in Oxford. It sits at the corner of High Street and Merton, so wonderful coffee shops, restaurants and shopping are mere steps away. The hotel is clean, comfortable and well appointed, and although we did not eat here, we did enjoy a late night cocktail at the bar. We rarely use our hotel for anything other than sleep/showering/dressing, and we found the accommodations to be quite adequate for those purposes. Our main requirement was proximity to my daughter as we did not want to rent a car, and we did in fact walk everywhere with ease.

Odd. I know the Eastgate to be a good hotel, but my stay there this time was very odd. Nice room, but the bed was an uncovered box-spring on the floor and a mattress with a covered duvet. No other linens. Odd. I also had the feeling that no one knew I was staying there. When I phoned the desk? No answer. Odd. Still, the price was good, the room clean and very nice, the location grand.

I've stayed there a number of times since 1980. New owners have spoiled a fine hotel. Now a slick, cold, business oriented hotel for Japanese visitors. Tiny room (actually a single with a double bed against one wall, sloping ceiling preventing sitting or getting up, three feet to bathroom door, no space for clothes or bags).They failed to call us for a six o'clock wake up to catch our return flight. No apologies. [...]
