We stayed at the Hawkwell House Hotel on the Saturday night of a week-end in Oxford recently.
This is a large and attractive hotel spreading over quite a large site in the village of Iffley on the outskirts of Oxford. It is quiet and peaceful and within a few minutes walk of the Thames towpath at Iffley Lock, despite also being only a couple of minutes drive from the Oxford by-pass. It is an easy bus ride into town, so that you don’t need to brave Oxford’s parking restrictions or its fiendish one-way system. Our room was in an annexe to the main part of the hotel and although comfortable and clean was a bit cramped. The double bed was distinctly on the small side, and the wi-fi reception was very poor (although much better in the hallway outside the room!). Breakfast was very good, and the service efficient and friendly.
I suspect that many of the other rooms are more spacious, so it would be worth inquiring specifically about the type and size of room available at the time of booking, particularly at week-ends as the hotel seems to be a popular wedding reception venue. In all other respects this was a pleasant stay, and the location of the hotel is excellent.
