This hotel is very pleasant and the staff are full of enthusiasm. They need to be to carry your bags up the very narrow winding staircases but as long as you allow them to take the strain that is no problem.
The location just to the north of the centre near to Somerville and Keble colleges is perfectly convenient to walk around Oxford. Breakfast is served when reasonably fine on the attractive walled terrace and there is also a quiet pretty courtyard inside and a very stylish 'Library' where drinks can be served with outdoor terrace on the first floor too.
Parking tight but quite a few places. Some shuffling.
Lovely. Different style from the Malmaison (see a previous review) but comparable very high standard of decor location and excellent staff.
Space is tight in Oxford overall so these hotels charge London prices but once you use this as your marker these are much nicer in terms of location and personal attention from the staff and altogether an extremely pleasant stay.
Room very tastefully decorated and comfortable.
Breakfast allowance included in our rate was generous and breakfast was very enjoyable.
