    Very good

    Quite central location. 20 minutes walk to city centre and very frequent bus service. Good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants right outside the door.

    I liked the location, staff and service

    Very good

    The triple room was a good size with a nice en-suite shower; the free car park was large, the location was very convenient for the city centre and the breakfast / breakfast room was very good

    The beds were not very comfortable

    Guest rating

    The dining area and garden were nice

    No restaurant, no bar, no 24hr reception, also didnt like glass door on bathrooms, and bedrooms to the front of the building could do with secondary glazing as they are very noisy

    The bathroom in our room was in need of an upgrade. It looked like other rooms were modernised

    Superb

    A very welcoming place; extremely pleasant staff, and for the cost, this is very comfortable and clean accommodation; the breakfast was very good and the service excellent. I would recommend this and will stay here again.

    The room was largely filled with the bed and the noise of the Banbury Road is sadly unavoidable.

    We were made welcome by all the staff. The breakfast staff were helpful and effecient. The breakfast was tasty, hot and plentiful. Ideal for a City break and near the centre of Oxford. I would recommend to family and friends.

    The only criticism (which sounds very silly) is the sauces for breakfast were in satches, which were very fiddly to open. Also the brown sauce tasted like a chemical sauce! Otherwise the breakfast was excellent.

    The freshly squeezed orange juice at breakfast, comfortable bed,spacious room

    A tiny bit noisy from traffic

    Superb

    The description of the hotel as "10 mins walk" from the centre is misleading. The centre of Oxford is a bus ride away. A proper 20-25 mins walk.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Friendly and helpful staff.

    Distance from town centre, but bus was convenient. Room could have been arranged better to give more space. A glass in the bathroom for toothbrushing would be useful.

    Very cosy room and clean room.

    The hotel is located further than only 20 minute walk to city center. Internet connection was not working in my room however it was ok. in the lounge area. Breakfast was served only until 9.00 am. No lunch or dinner served in the hotel.

    Very good

    All the staff were very friendly and the breakfast was excellent. Our room was small but this wasn't a problem for a one night stay. Being able to park at the hotel for the weekend was an added bonus this near to the centre of Oxford

    Hotel is about a 20 minute walk from the city centre, not 10 minutes as advertised although there are regular buses. Minor points but no hanging space in bedroom for clothes (only cupboards for folded clothes) and only one chair provided in a double room so the bed was the only place for sitting/watching tv
