My husband and I spent two nights at this hotel Sunday 27th and Monday 28th September - because of these particular nights we were able to take advantage of The Old Bank's "stay Sunday night and get Monday night at half price" offer. This made it affordable for us and helped me make my decision - I had been tossing a few other ideas around as there are so many accommodation options in Oxford and the surrounding area.
We were able to park our hire car at the rear of the hotel (ring reception for directions if necessary), and all the sights were on the front door step! One minute and you're at the Radcliffe Camera, five minutes and you're down by the River next to Christchurch Meadow.
We booked a Deluxe Double and I'm glad we did - it wasn't very big so I'm not sure how small the Standard Room would be?? Our room was located at the rear of the hotel, and although this only afforded a view of the leafy car park with glimpses of surrounding college spires, it was well away from the very busy High Street which was undergoing roadworks immediately in front of the hotel at the time of our stay.
The bed was large and comfortable and the room had all the amenities one would expect from a Hotel of this calibre. The bathroom was spacious with a great shower. Housekeeping visited often for morning tidy up and night-time turndown service.
The service was sometimes slightly hurried but always helpful - and we enjoyed our two breakfasts in Quod. Great food, ambience and attentive wait staff.
The best part was the location - we saved so much time by staying in the centre. Sight seeing and fabulous shopping on your doorstep! I would certainly stay there again.
