          Everyone who works and stays at this little hotel seems just right. I had a view of the community gardens and the river. Breakfast as always was perfect. Patricia always makes sure that I have a lovely time in my home away from home.

          Hi, what would you like to know about this accommodation? Will your family room allow 2 adults plus 2 small children?

          Response from rhoxf | Property representative |
          Our family rooms have a double bed and a single bed, normally for three occupants; it would depend on the age of your children and for how many nights you wish to stay. Please contact the hotel directly with your request.

          I noticed parking is a problem in the city centre of Oxford, and many of the city hotels require pre-booking for the limited parking spaces on site. Is this the case at the River Hotel, that is do I have to ring up prior to arrival to secure my parking spot or we could just drive up the day we check in?

          We have ample free parking on site for registered residents, it is not necessary to book a space. When booking we enquire your arrival time and transport to send appropriate directions. River Hotel Oxford reception
