We stayed a couple of nights in a room overlooking the High Street, which was spacious and (thanks to the double glazing) surprisingly quiet. Apart from that it also had the two absolutely non-negotiable requirements of a decent hotel room: a comfortable bed and a powerful and efficient shower. The multi-national staff were uniformly courteous and helpful, and the location is unbeatable for anyone visiting Oxford. The only very minor problem we had was that the policy of the hotel's restaurant, Quod, on reservations, isn't as clearly communicated as it might have been, so if you need to be sure of a table you should double-check. We've previously stayed in the sister establishment, the Old Parsonage, which is currently being refurbished, and despite the differences in outward style the same 'guiding spirit' is manifest in both these fine hotels. It is expensive but it is in my view worth it.
