great hotel - provided you don;t rely on wifi to function. I'm online & just tested the speed & got: "WiFi expected speed: 0.09 Mbps, Confidence: 4.4% that's like having a modem isn't it? It is slower than anything I've used for years!

We went to the hotel for a Sunday carvery, the reception and bar area were very welcoming and looked rather snazzy. As well as being tastefully decorated for Christmas The food and service within the restaurant were excellent with a good atmosphere. The hotel is easily accessible, has plenty of parking and there is a lovely, short walk (along the...

We booked on Sunday the restaurant for lunch. On arrival there was no booking! But they manage to find us a table for 6. Food and service was ok standard. Nothing to write home about. Would we go back to eat..no. Lacks soul and character. Probably one up from a Premier Inn. Parking good. Close to get into Oxford Centre...

We came to Oxford for a midweek break and chose this hotel mainly for its location. It's very easy to get into the city centre, either on foot or by bus and you can walk in along the Thames on fine days. Parking isn't a problem. Our room was very comfortable, not as modern as the public areas but clean...

We've just been here on a Saturday-night special £158 for Dinner B&B with wine at dinner through an advert in a national newspaper. The hotel is well situated with an easy stroll along the Thames into the City of Oxford. Facilities are as you would expect from Four Pillars - clean, well appointed rooms which are comfortable and warm. Reception...

Ideal location for business trip to Oxford. Easy access from the M4 and under 10 minutes to the centre of Oxford in rush hour traffic. We were given recently refurbished attic rooms, not much headroom but perfectly acceptable for our one night stay. We enjoyed a high quality evening meal and a cooked breakfast that set us up for the...

Ok place for a business trip. The wifi is terribly slow everywhere (meeting rooms, bar/restaurant or bedrooms). The meeting rooms are large and comfortable. Food is brasserie style and average. Good beds.
