Arrived a Saturday afternoon, I took one of the Love Sundays packages. Dinner, B&B plus cream tea. The room was lovely, really nice touches such as slippers, dressing gowns. Spotlessly clean. Dinner was 3 courses and was delicious. Great choice, well cooked. The staff were lovely, very friendly, couldn't do enough for us. Our waitress was very knowledgable about the...

A friend and I were visiting Oxford for the weekend and decided to take the option for a day pass at the Oxford Spires spa. We both opted for a massage and I was lucky enough to have Ellie deliver mine. She did a terrific job, providing a massage that was utterly relaxing and managed to rid me of all...

Booked The room for my wife's birthday with a meal in the hotel. Room was fantastic, the food was lush and the breakfast was great just to top it off. The leasure facilities were not bad but were starting to look a little tired but still respectable. Over all 5 stars for sure

Booked a very last minute Love Sunday deal which was excellent value for money. We had a deluxe room (15) on the ground floor that even had a little terrace with table and chairs. Food was perfectly acceptable and plentiful although quality of some items was a bit hit and miss. Thoroughly recommend the scones served as part of the...

We recently stayed here for 2 nights for my partners 65th birthday. It's literally 10 mins walk along the Thames into Oxford. The evening meal was superb and the hotel is really modern. The pool and spa facilities are really good too. Our room was very clean and had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and there is...

Stayed here for 2 nights for business trip. Long queue at check in and my party paid anything between £116 and £240 for one night, very strange and the check in staff would not reduce the more expensive cost - all booked through same agency. Room was nice, very modern and clean, breakfast very good and good location about 0.75...

Have never known worst service than currently getting at this hotel, 1 hour to get a drink !!!, what a way to ruin a party that's been arranged a long time, absolutely unforgivable, never again and for those who want a normal level of service, go elsewhere

Our room was a long way from Reception, although we realised we could cut across outside. This did mean it was quiet and had a lovely view across the fields. The bed was extremely comfortable and I think I slept better than anywhere I've stayed before. We had an issue with our TV, which couldn't receive the HD channels of...
