So many great things to say about this hotel! The location couldn’t be better, right on Oxford High St. and within walking distance of shops, pubs, restaurants, schools, churches, etc. There’s also a complimentary car park right behind the hotel (it’s a bit hidden and easy to miss the signs – it’s off of Merton, then right on Magpie).
The room was incredibly spacious and decorated nicely. The hotel has a unique modern art collection so there are interesting pieces throughout the hotel and in the rooms. There was a good-sized desk and chair, and complimentary wi-fi is available. The bed was one of the most comfortable I’ve ever slept in.
The bathroom was also surprisingly spacious and had Ren toiletries. There’s a warning posted in the bathroom about the hotel’s high water pressure, and it is (in a good way).
The staff at check-in/out was pleasant. We arrived much earlier than the official check-in time and they had no problem letting us in our room early.
I doubt you could find a better base for exploring Oxford. I'd definitely stay again!
