Well I have stayed at Oxford Spires. I liked it a lot! The room size I/we had was very good and spacious. Breakfast also good IIRC (it was a good 10 yr ago or more...) we even had room-service breakfast at no extra cost - very decadent!

You can walk to the centre of town on the street - the walk goes past Christchurch college, OR you can wallk across Christchurch fields from the Hotel directly to the college - as long as the ground is dry underfoot.

If you don't want to walk, a bus goes past regularly.

Not sure where New College is in relation, but daresay if you look at a map of Oxford yourself, you can work it out.

Have not stayed at The Buttery, so can't give a comparison I'm afraid.

The Buttery is in Broad Street. Dead centre. Five minutes walk to New College.

I personally wouldn't give two cow droppings about the size of the rooms, you are only using them to sleep in aren't you?

Four Pillars to New College is about a mile and a quarter - 25 minutes walk, and 15/20 mins walk for the City centre.
