          The location of the hotel is good, close to the center. It was nothing luxurious but there was a lot of space and it was very clean. The staff was specially kind and helpful, all of them. I enjoyed my stay a lot!

          Conveniently located near the train station and on the banks of the river. Staff were very pleasant, room was dated but comfortable, reasonably quiet location. Wifi was a bit spotty. Has a nice bar - but beer was not chilled.

          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?

          Response from rhoxf | Property representative |
          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
