If you're lucky enough to stay here you'll know what I mean. The rooms are well appointed, there is ample parking and the staff are great. What made it for me was the breakfast; best breakfast in the UK every!!

Also known as the Oxford Thames Four Pillars Hotel, we booked a standard double room and were provided with a lovely room with a view of the garden. While we had minor issues with the room itself (a globe view which managed to trigger a fuse and take down the power) the issue was fixed within minutes and we were...

I loved my three night stay here, it was sensational, from the outstanding room and luxurious comfort to the spa, the breakfast and the staff who could not have been more helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this hotel. Great location so a taxi can be ordered for £8 to get into the center of Oxford. Book it, it's beautiful

We stayed here on a Christmas break and really enjoyed the experience. The staff were friendly and helpful and we felt quite pampered. The room was large enough to accommodate the three of us although the only criticism was that the room was too hot (no a/c) but apart from that it was clean and spacious. The food was excellent...
