Arrived at the front door to be instantly greeted by a concierge who whisked our luggage out of the boot and valet parked the car. We were early but our room was ready and we were given an upgrade from a classic to an executive without asking. Beautiful art and crafts foyer with gothic arches and stained glass and a beautiful staircase. A longish walk to our room at 172 however it was at the back of the hotel and was unbelievably quiet for a city centre location, no traffic noise at all. Room spacious, Moulton and Brown toiletries, large bathroom with seperate shower and bath, all beautifully laid out. Extremely easy to walk out into Oxford for all the colleges, the market, the Bodleian Library, the Ashmolean, restaurants (great Thai down a little alley off High Street). When we got back our bed had been turned down and choccies on the pillows. Crisp white sheets, feather pillows and an incredibly comfortable bed. Great choice at breakfast with attentive staff. Concierges are all so delightful and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. I said it's 'the little things' because all the little things add up to one wonderful experience. It was my husbands and mine Christmas present to each other and it lived up to expectation.
One little funny was the half eaten bar of Green and Blacks in the fridge when we arrived (how they could've left half I don't know!) which was removed promptly when notified. Drinks in the bar are on the pricey side but hey it's a 5* hotel so to be expected.
