Our room was in a need of an upgrade, though the bathroom had recently been refurbished and was very nice the room itself looked.very.worn even though we'd paid for an upgrade also there was a lack of storage drawers....

The accommodations were comfortable and clean, but very average. The view from our room was quite pedestrian -- simply a courtyard with views of other balconies. However, the Front Desk staff were friendly and helpful with directions.

We had a twin and a double room. The twin room was spacious and luxurious, as was the double. The double bed was huge! Very clean and comfortable. I appeared that the rooms were recently refurbished to a high standard. Nice bonus of an upstairs residents lounge with board games which we enjoyed.

I will start with the nice points about this hotel - nice comfortable room - quite large, nicely stocked mini bar, friendly staff, and a good location with nice surroundings (about 15 minutes walk to Oxford High Street). The bar serves a range of drinks late into the night. There are however, quite a few bad points. The breakfast is...

The best thing about this hotel is the proximity to Oxford centre - an easy walk along the road or along the Thames of about 15 minutes. We booked a standard room, for 2 nights, at £304, which was really that, standard, to be honest. We were up early to use the spa facilities which were good, although I thought...

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I think the room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. In terms of my work, it was a nice walk each day to the University but if you're in a hurry, a bus would probably be a better bet. The hotel's outside surroundings were lovely and I liked the view of...
