Total rip off, paid over £100 pounds to stay in a room where the TV didn't work and shower didn't work. When asked to change rooms or to fix either issue the staff replied it wasn't their issue. Terrible service, bad rooms and a total waste of money.

This is an excellent hotel to explore Oxford. The rooms are a similar size to the big sensibly priced multiple roomed hotels, have the kettle, hair dryer, trouser press, toiletries etc, but in a family run hotel with a family atmosphere. The breakfasts were made to order, and personal preferences were catered for, hubby only wanted toast, I like scrambled...

Stayed at The Balkan Lodge Hotel in Oxford and stayed in the room with the four poster bed, the room was clean but had cobwebs everywhere and the shower was useless,no water would come out and if it did, it was too hot all to cold,as you had to put taps on to make it work...!!!! disaster.

We were greeted cordially by the manager and given our key. We made our own way upstairs to our room which needed redecorating as it looked tired, although very clean to be fair. We were at the front facing a main road but the double glazing helped shut noise out. At breakfast, we ordered a full English and were invited...

We stayed here for a night during a trip to Oxford. Great value for money. Easy to get a bus into the city centre. Service was friendly and the full English breakfast was great!! In fact we had stayed at the crazy bear the night before and at four times the price the service here was of a much better...

We had a lovely stay at this quirky little hotel. We had the warmest welcome ever by the proprietor who was very helpful with walks etc. Just outside Oxford so ideal location. Bus stop outside hotel if you need & it's a No 3 bus which takes about 5 minutes to go into Oxford. We walked a lot which took...

The staff were very helpful but they charge extra for a four poster bed room when the décor is dark and messy and the mattress was like a plank of wood. I awoke with backache which only a long soak in the bath resolved slightly. The shower was less than effective.

My advice, check and double check then get confirmation in writing. I booked by 'phone a couple of weeks before our trip, when we arrived we were casually informed that there was'a problem' as we had been double booked and 'it would be unfair on the other people to take their room' - even though our booking preceded theirs. I...

Living just down the road from the Balkan Lodge, I was forced out of my university accommodation because of a gas leak and loss of heat & hot water. I'd already heard good things about this hotel so I was happy to book three nights with my flatmate, and we were both absolutely thrilled with the experience we had. Beautiful...
