We had a great stay at the Ethos Hotel, which is only 10 minutes walk from the centre of Oxford. The room had everything we needed, with a kitchenette (complete with breakfast basket, juice and milk), nice shower room, iPod speakers, Sky+ and flat-screen TV; the bed was huge and comfy, and the wardrobes were bigger than ours at home!
The only problem was that Oxford has a strict park-and-ride policy, and we'd chosen this hotel because they promised a parking permit. When we arrived, there were no permits available, and we were extremely lucky to find an unrestricted space a few streets away - did spend the weekend wondering if we were going to get a ticket, though! Once this has been sorted out (the hotel's still very new), the Ethos Hotel will be an absolute winner - it's already one of the nicest places we've stayed and deserves to be a success.
