Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great hotel. A peaceful location but easy to get into Oxford . Clean comfortable bedrooms. Good food and service. What’s not to like. Thanks to Vignesh and Henri tonight for their attentive service in the bar and to those in Reception for their help

Hotel's Favourite
Having previously enjoyed short breaks at the Oxford Spires, my wife and I booked five rooms at the hotel for an annual reunion with a group of friends. It’s an ideal hotel whether this be for a single guest, couples, families with children or those visiting on business. Although very convenient for the attractions of Oxford, the hotel has the bonus of being in a quiet countryside setting, well away from the bustle of traffic on Abingdon Road. The hotel is conveniently located just a short and easy walk into Oxford city centre. I recommend the Thames walk along the tow path. Our room (16) was spacious, nicely furnished and very comfortable. The food and service was excellent. The staff we met throughout the hotel – reception desk, concierge, restaurant/bar staff, domestic etc., were all extremely pleasant, helpful and efficient, delivering an excellent quality of service. A big ‘thank you’ to the Front Office Manager, Daniel, and his team. Their efforts greatly contributed to a lovely short break.

My wife and I experienced an excellent Spa day. Time in pool followed by an invigorating and relaxing hot stone massage. Leisure centre receptionists were very helpful, masseuse was great as was Grace in the Deacon bar who served us both a splendid meal. Thank you all.

I very much enjoyed my dinner at VOCO in Oxford. I had the beef steak, soup and truffle fries along with a glass of red wine which was very tasty. Vignesh and Henri were especially great and provided me with wonderful, attentive and respectful service.

We chose the Voco for an evening drink and meal for its peaceful, soothing ambience. The food was good. Service provided by the team of Vignesh and Awais was extraordinary. Definitely worth another visit at the first possible opportunity. Looking forward to it

What an absolute delight to stay here! From the moment we arrived we were given a warm welcome by reception, and all staff full of welcoming smiles. We had a wonderful spa afternoon, and Lacey, our therapist was amazing! Evening meal was delicious, we were looked after my Molly, who was chatty and very helpful. After the most amazing nights sleep, breakfast didn’t disappoint either, so much selection, and all looked fresh and appetising, we were given a warm welcome by Devika, who guided us to our table, and explained everything. Marley on the bar was very attentive, and entertaining!

My husband and I came to the hotel for a ladies weekend and I have to say, that in the past, while the company has always been excellent the places are not. This hotel has exceeded all my expectations. The receptionist was polite and professional, the room bright and large with a lovely balcony over looking the fields, cleaned quickly and efficiently and checked later in the day to ensure I was happy with it. And then comes the food … our ladies evening was hosted by Max and Rustam along with their team of waiters and waitresses. It is not often I feel the need to personally say thank you but last night I did. The food was delicious and the service matched. This is a hotel that I would come to again and again. Thank to all the staff at the Oxford Shires Oxford you made our weekend great.

Let me tell you about Max and Rustam at our wedding. They were like wedding wizards, making sure everything ran smoothly and everyone had food. Their energy was infectious, and their attention to detail was impeccable. We couldn't have asked for better service! Thank you guys 🙏
