We were a couple of hours early for checking in, however the reception staff could not do enough in moving things around so we could check in on arrival, rather than just check our bags.
The location is great for access into Oxford and is on the number 3 bus route which runs every 15 minutes and even at night. If you're a travelling as two adults (and with up to three children) ask for a group ticket which allows you to travel on most buses in the Oxford area.
The room was lovely and warm and very sunny. It had all the basic amenities,including tea and coffee making facilities. The only minor suggestion to the hotel would be that they add a few more toiletries as there weren't quite enough for two people.
The inclusive breakfast was delicious and just what we needed to set us up for a day of sightseeing and again, the waiting staff could not have been more attentive.
Absolutely recommend it and will be back very soon!
