Stayed here after we accidentally forgot to book any hotel in Oxford. The staff were accommodating and kept the kitchen open for us to make a delicious stonebaked pizza. Great room, great service, and one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in. 10/10 would visit again.

We were a little put off when we first arrived at the hotel (the location and building suggested B&B) but we were very pleasantly surprised. The room was large and comfortable; the breakfast was quite good and the center of Oxford is less than a mile away. Very nice hotel and a good price.

I had realised that my voucher was coming up to the expiry date so needed to use it ASAP. I forgot that you needed to give 24hrs notice, which is quite hard for me as I was taking my Mum who suffers with severe depression, so can be very unpredictable how she will be on day day to day basis....

So many good points to mention from the glass of Prosecco on arrival to the beautifully decorated room and the 'grazing' bar in the cafe. Room had a big TV, a microwave and tea and coffee making facilities. The staff were really friendly and it was an easy walk to the centre of town. We had a lovely stay here...

Stayed here from 27th to 31st of December 2016. This hotel is ideally located as it is only a 10 minute walk to Oxford CIty centre. Check in to the hotel is via the Cafe across the road however as we arrived after 10pm the Cafe was closed. Using the phone we had to ring a call service to get...

Very pleasant welcome, nice room. Breakfast should have been good but was cold, sent back to sadly no avail! On day two said up front I wanted a hot full English breakfast, not as on day one. Once more it was cold & had to be sent back, the microwave treatment (not ideal) did at least mean it was eventually...

Staff are friendly, but the room itself was disappointing. Bed was awful, super springy and uncomfortable, and the walls were paper thin, next door set their alarm ten minutes before mine and woke me up. I'm really loud and was watching YouTube videos until at least 11pm so I bet our neighbours were well annoyed with us. They're going for...

Absolutely shocking. Website is deceiving. We had my dad with us. Rooms were cold, dirty and beds were damp. We booked through Expedia who are proving difficult to deal with in terms of getting a refund. We didn't stay here. We walked away as my 83 year old dad actually said " I don't want to die tonight ". That's...

We stayed in a room that had its own front door. The rooms are like little flats with fridge and microwave as well as little kitchen. Bathroom was small but functional - underfloor heating is good but should have been showed to us, as wasn't till 2nd day when we discovered it! The bed was very comfy but you could...
