Arriving about 8pm - no one on reception. I could see someone moving behind the 'one way glass' but used the phone instructing guests to call if no one was there. The receptionist emerged, taking her time and issued me immediately with the invoice for my stay. What a welcome!. However, she became more friendly. Maybe I caught her at...

The Galaxie Hotel is located a short bus ride north of town. The room was spacious and the breakfast more than adequate. Tidy and safe. Staying closer to Oxford can be so expensive - stay here and spend your saved money on a pint of good English ale at one of the many local pubs!

I had a convenient single room at the Galaxie Hotel. The facilities were good and the breakfast had a variety of food available in a buffet style. Fruit juice, cereals, fruit, continental and English breakfast items all available. My only criticism - the bacon was a little too crisp for me. The main reason I selected the Galaxie (besides being...

Went to Oxford for work and was recommended the Galaxie. It is a great little hotel away from the city centre, with comfortable rooms and good breakfast. The best part is the staff! Super friendly and helful.

This was a chance booking for us as we don't know Oxford at all. As it turned out, we couldn't have found a better location. Free parking - which in Oxford is a definite plus point. Regular, frequent buses to the city centre stopped right outside the hotel. The bus ride is only 5 minutes to the centre. Nearby there...

The hotel is located at Banbury Road, 15 minutes away from Oxford City Center via bus. It is located outside Thorncliffe Road bus stop. Their breakfast is amazing. The size of our room is generous with ample space for packing and repacking :-). The room is modern and very clean and well kept. The hallways are a bit confusing but...

Checked in by one friendliest receptionists we've ever come across she was efficient and helpful. She made us feel very welcome. Excellent facilities, very big delicious breakfast! Advice to others: don't be put off by reading those nasty false reviews as I can prove they were all lies. Just book your room here!

Booked a double room. The invoice stated it could be a double or a twin. Phoned to confirm it would definitely be a double. When a woman with poor English answered the phone and asked what I wanted, I began to tell her. Out of the blue, she barked at me to hold on. She disappeared. I could hear her...

Our family of three stayed here and were quite pleased with everything. The front end staff was super friendly and helpful, as well as efficient. Our rooms were very comfortable and pleasing aesthetically. Breakfast was wonderful and delicious- and the breakfast room was lovely. We will definitely stay here again when we are back in the area!
