Stayed there two nights recently and were very impressed. We were in the Main Building - the bedroom was a little old-fashioned and could maybe do with some updating, but that is really the only fault I can find; we were very comfortable, had no problems at all with noise, and the breakfast was superb. In addition we had the... More

Was surprised to read of complaints about it being noisy as we were there during freshers' week & were surprised at how quiet our room was. Beds were comfortable, room serviced every day (not always the case in these establishments) hospitality tray replenished. Breakfast was better than many we've had in hotels. Great choice of cooked food which is buffet... More

This is old school Oxford. Where the porter would rather you weren't staying and is rude to your face.

The rooms are old and poorly maintained. Bathrooms are shared. On top of that, the place is really loud and the sound of old wooden doors banging wont let you rest. No one show you to your room, they just give you a map and up you go. I would never visit again for sure.

After having used St Hughs for a rugby World Cup volunteers dinner, our Oxford Refs. society decided to hold our end of season dinner here. We were not disappointed. Met by attentive staff, with Champagne in the garden, it proved to be a chilly evening. They moved us inside with no problem. We then proceeded to dine. A tasty three... More

We booked rooms at St Hugh's so we could attend a conference on the site the following day. The rooms were charged at £100 per night so we were expecting something more than we received.. The rooms were tiny with only the absolute basics (bed, wardrobe, kettle, desk, light and bathroom), essentially a bedsit. The parking was also pretty bad... More

Paid £70 for bed and breakfast. No prior information was given about the location of the porter's lodge and where to park, so I had to wander around the outside of the college, which occupies quite a few acres. On arrival, the porter's manner was surly, off-hand and even hostile, which was quite off-putting. In addition, on the map he... More
