Booked 2 rooms , double for my teenage daughter £330 a night and a suite for my wife and I £440 a night.
Come to oxford often and have stayed in all the decent hotels , Randolph, malmaison and the bank ( sister hotel to this one)
Oxford hotels are all expensive , just the way it is , but for this money you expect it all to be excellent.
Hotel itself has been excellently refurbished all very nice , including library and outdoor sitting area
Room furnishing really are top drawer
Parking available ( call to reserve as not many spaces)
What's not so good
For £440 a night for a suite , I expected a suite , not one room with a sitting area
No tea/ coffee making facilities , I think hotel feels it's too posh to provide a kettle , at least put in a coffee machine.
Only been open 2 months since refurb, and feels like it's not all bedded in yet
We were shown to wrong room , which had been made up with 3 beds and had to wait until they found our correct room.
Had to wait ages to check in as the 2 members of staff appeared to be learning how to check people in
At 10pm called to reception for some tea to be delivered ( no kettle remember ) after 2 attempts , gave up as no one answered the phone.
Despite the gripes , this is a nice hotel , but not worth the money yet..............
