Just back from a lovely weekend at the hotel. We stayed in a family room, in an area of the hotel which was being refreshed. The room was spacious and lovely. A king size bed and a single bed, both very comfortable. The room also had a sofa, which was great to have that extra space. The staff were lovely...

I used this hotel for a one night stay and spent very little time here so can't say much about it - the room was clean, I didn't sleep well but rarely do so I don't think it was any fault of the hotel's. The breakfast was a buffet which was a bit disappointing since the breakfast menu to order...

We stayed at Hawkwell House Hotel for one night on Saturday 19th November for my Mums 70th birthday. We booked three rooms, two superior family rooms and one superior double. As you can imagine, booking for such a special occasion is always worrying, as you want everything to be perfect....and that is exactly what our stay was...PERFECT! We rang ahead...

There couldn't be any better a place to stay for a first-time tourist to the UK than Hawkwell House in Oxford. Cozy, quaint, and quiet but bubbling with guest interaction downstairs. The place is literally and wonderfully warm and toasty :-) ...a welcome treat walking in from zero degrees outdoor. And lovely, lovely staff from the reception to housekeeping and...

Great location which puts you an easy walk from the centre of Oxford. We checked-in and didn't use the car for the duration of our three day stay; enjoyed the easy, flat walk into the city alongside the River Thames. Room was clean and comfortable. No air conditioning though left us too hot during the night despite the low temperatures...

Hello there. I am really sorry to hear that you didn't like the room that you were in and that you experienced some issues. As you have stated we are commended highly for our rooms, service and detail, but somehow we appear to have let you down on this occasion. I do welcome you to get in touch personally to...
