Apologies as I couldn't find just how to submit this to the spa- Came for a spa day with a friend as a treat wishing to be pampered a bit and have a chance to catch up. I chose a set package of things which included welcome drink, lunch, a massage and facial, and a manicure alongside use of the...

Been here on a few occasions for family get togethers and never been disappointed. They do a lovely Sunday Carvery which is very good value for money. Ample parking and set is pretty surroundings, can also walk from the centre of Oxford which doesn't take very long.

I am a little surprised by some of the negative comments about this hotel as we are very experienced travellers, spending a lot of time in hotels on the European mainland in particular, and found nothing at all to complain about. From the moment of arrival, when the friendly receptionist checked us in early without any problem, to the moment...

We stayed at Oxford Spires for one night in October. We found the reception staff to be pretty cold and unwelcoming on arrival. There is a nice river walk close by but you need to watch out for speeding bicycles coming out of no where as they won't stop for people on foot and we were nearly knocked over twice!!...

This hotel is located close to the Thames river path about 0.5 mile from Oxford centre. Rooms were comfortable and quiet. The restaurant meals were OK although the staff were not particularly attentive and the ambiance was less than intimate. Overall a pleasant place to stay for a night.

Had work Christmas do here - usual formula of lots of tables of people from different companies for drinks, then dinner followed by a disco. OK is the best I can say.
