Went with family - 2 children and stayed in room 101. Good points were - FABULOUS location, clean and comfortable with all expected facilities, albeit the toilet seat was broken and part of the door laminate falling off which gave an air of shabbyness. BUT beware we were at the front and really noisy on a Saturday night (students mainly,...

I booked this last minute (as an escape from an awful hotel my partner and I were supposed to be staying at), and we did not experience one hiccup at all. Considering we'd only booked an hour or so before arriving, the staff had everything ready for us and even allowed us to check in early. The staff were polite,...

The best thing about this hotel is its location.Unfortunately it ends there. The hotel has no lifts and no obvious entrance ther buttery being a snack bar adjacent to a red door which we found was the entrance. At breakfast we went down the three levels into the street and then tried to enter the buttery where breakfast was served,...

Went for breakfast, plates cold so was food, asked for beans to be heated in microwave but still just lukewarm. Really for nearly £8 it wasn't good enough. Cakes looked good but I'd go elsewhere if you want hot food.

Excellent location in the centre of Oxford, with easy access to everything. Stairs up to the first floor reception with rooms, and then up again to the second and third floor rooms are not for the faint-hearted. Little road noise as pedestrian precinct outside. The room is very clean, comfortable and warm, but not cheap. Shower experience was not great....

The location of the hotel is fantastic - right in the centre - excellent for shops and colleges. Entrance to the reception area is up steep stairs - not for the disabled. Reception staff were friendly. The room , although booked as a "de luxe" room, was nothing special and, as an example, the duvet was old and very lumpy....

I am sorry that due to a problem that could not be sorted out immediately you had the inconvenience of moving hotels. On this occasion we could only find limited availability in the city centre. you preferred to move further out and as you say we paid for a taxi. I feel a one star is very unfair as you...

Stayed for one night in a twin room (the only room left, or would have selected double) while in Oxford for business. The bed I slept in was comfortable (I assume the other one was too but didn't check), although it did squeak quite a lot. The tea and coffee facilities in my room were good with nice quality and...

For £150 a night, I certainly did not expect the dire level of service I had the misfortunate of receiving. The quality of the room was subpar for this price range, in particular the uncomfortable pillows and mattress. The manager was incredibly discourteous and lacks basic customer service skills. The wifi was barely working. Oxford is a beautiful city and...

The majority of our reviews are in the main positive. It is always disappointing when someone gives such a terrible review. Our staff always aim to give the best service possible and deal with any problems immediately. Our mattresses and pillows are of a deluxe quality as the most important thing for us is our guests have a comfortable nights...

Stayed at the Buttery for three nights in December. Centrally located on Broad Street in front of where several walking tours begin, it is ideal for the average traveler. For those arriving by bus to Oxford it is only about a five minute walk to the bus station. The hotel is located on the second and third floor of the...

Felt like sleeping on 2 pieces of paper. Cant fault the location, right in the heart of Oxford its ideal for exploring. No parking and none close by. It...
