The Buttery is a very charming little hotel in the perfect location for seeing the sights in Oxford. All the best things to see are easily within walking distance. The stairways are winding and narrow, and the rooms can be quirky, but that adds to the charm if you have the right attitude. The staff are very friendly and helpful,...

Being an historic building posed a few challenges that guests need to be aware of. If you have lots of heavy luggage then be prepared to carry them up some very narrow, steep steps to the reception area on the first floor. Then onto your room which for us was a deluxe room on the second floor at the front...

Situated right in the centre of Oxford, the Buttery is in a perfect location for a weekend stay. Staff very friendly and helpful and the breakfast (included in the price) is decent. Rooms are good value compared with other hotels in Oxford, especially considering the central location. TV and wifi facilities are good and the de luxe rooms offer ample...

This hotel claims to be 4star. Not true. The facilities hardly justify 1star. Room adequate but noisy (so called de luxe rooms face Broad Street - choose one at the back). Breakfast was appalling, served in the tatty cafe next door. Staff friendly.ŷ

The location is great, fifteen minutes walk from the station and in the centre of everything and the staff were helpful and friendly. I stayed in a first floor room overlooking Broad Street and had no problems with noise although it wasn't on a weekend. Plenty of choice for breakfast but avoid the scrambled eggs. I would stay here again...

Friendly staff. Rooms quaint but overpriced and in need of 'polish'. VERY noisy if room overlooks Broad Street. Staff start hovering before 9 at weekends - consequently v little sleep.

The Buttery is right in the town centre: the location is great, so long as you're happy with the the hustle and bustle of the city centre outside rather than peace and quiet. As you might expect for central Oxford, the building is old: there are a lot of creaking floorboards, winding staircases, uneven floors, and so on. I guess...

We had been looking for a stylish and interesting alternative to the Randolph (cost was not a particular issue). We actually booked the Tower House a year in advance but they revoked our booking due to refurbishment and recommended this instead It's noisy, pokey and stuffy and we wish we had stuck to the Randolph! should not hav

The location is amazing and the hotel has more character than your average chain. The room was very well furnished and quiet. The only issue was that the old windows rattle a little in the night when the wind blows. You can wedge something in there easy enough though. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is...
