    To be fair to this Hotel, I will start with the positives: Our room was clean..... It is in a reasonably good location within walking distance of the town.... MOST of the staff were nice.... Breakfast was good.... comfy bed and surprisingly, had a good...More

    I stayed here before and didn't mind that it was a bit tatty as it was clean enough and the shower worked. Having stayed again (and in the same room) I found that some of the grubbiness that I had thought merely an oversight was...More

    so it was such bonus that the Hotel was so nice. Last minute plan to stay in Oxford and we couldn't find accommodation. Looks like a big old house and upon entering, all looked a little dated, as did the room. But it was spotless,...More

    We liked this hotel so much we stayed for an additional night. Very convenient for city centre and the staff are efficient and eager to please. The rooms are slightly old fashioned i.e. Sheets and blankets rather than duvets but the beds were comfortable.

    If you like showers that fluxuate on their own between hot and cold, after you spent the night on a mattress that offers little support and folds you up like a taco, then this is your place. Where is the second bathing towel for my...More

    Hi, what would you like to know about this accommodation? Will your family room allow 2 adults plus 2 small children?

    Response from rhoxf | Property representative |
    Our family rooms have a double bed and a single bed, normally for three occupants; it would depend on the age of your children and for how many nights you wish to stay. Please contact the hotel directly with your request.

    I noticed parking is a problem in the city centre of Oxford, and many of the city hotels require pre-booking for the limited parking spaces on site. Is this the case at the River Hotel, that is do I have to ring up prior to arrival to secure my parking spot or we could just drive up the day we check in?

    We have ample free parking on site for registered residents, it is not necessary to book a space. When booking we enquire your arrival time and transport to send appropriate directions. River Hotel Oxford reception
