We didn't stay at the Holiday Inn but we went in for a meal, 2 nights. The food was excellent, great menu, staff very friendly but service was really slow & the restaurant was not even busy. Would recommend eating here even if you are staying in another motel.

I wanted to like this hotel, I still do and they have the potential. Currently they are only a 4 star hotel because their facilities meet the tick box requirement for what a 4 star hotel should have the service, policies and training lacks finesse and consistency to be more than a 2 star hotel. Most of the staff are... More

Situated north of Oxford city this nice hotel offers very clean rooms (bathroom absolutely spotless), a responsive, friendly and helpful staff and a bar/resturant with a good selection of food. Breakfast starts early and has a variety to suit all - highly appreciated. Both rooms and hallways are quiet. Some may find the matresses a bit on the firm side.... More

Hotel rooms are lovely, spacious and clean. Dinner menu in restaurant average, but good breakfast selection. Could do with proper tea and coffee, not lukewarm water from machine.

Formulaic Holiday Inn and none the worse for it. Great staff, who were very helpful. Nice food, good service and clean facilities. Starbucks in reception has some of the nicest staff and offer a tasty Holiday Inn menu, not cheap but reasonable value.
