“After many visits . . .”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

Hotel is ideally placed: near the station, and an easy walk to anywhere in Oxford one's likely to want to see. I have stayed here many times, and all the rooms are large and comfortable, with lots of fruit and (too many!) biscuits provided. Bathrooms are generally large too, and have baths.with showers that are easy for technomorons to work! The sound of traffic, of which there is plenty round the hotel, is effectively silenced by the double-glazing. The staff are lovely!

Staff are excellent and very accommodating. The hotel is conveniently located near the train station, so travelling to the office is easy from here. Being dropped off and picked up by transportation to and from the airport can be a bit sketchy due to the high traffic. A fridge in the room would be a very nice additional amenity, but the bowl of fruit is greatly appreciated.

Dear Sir
Thank you very much for finding the time to write the review and I am pleased that you have enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately at the moment there are no plans of adding fridges to the bedrooms, however we do offer 24h Room Service, you can ask for as much ice as you require and we have fridges in the hotels' kitchen where we can keep customers items needed refrigeration.
We hope to be of service to you again in the very near future.

Yours faithfully

Good central location, friendly & efficient staff.
excellent breakfast
Car parking is awkward - as pensioners we did not pay for buses to the park & ride but it would otherwise add to costs
A good choice for anyone using public transport.






Room Tip: Room simply furnished, but clean & well organised. generous allocation of toiletries

Dear Sir
Thank you very much for your review and I am pleased that you have enjoyed your stay with us. Just to clarify the cost of Park and Ride buses, a return ticket to the Sea Court Park and Ride on Botley Road is £2.70 and parking for 24 hours there costs £2.00 only. We also co-operate with a shop next door to the hotel and there you pay £5.00 for overnight stay.
We hope to be of service to you again in the near future.

Room and reception were clean. The bed was comfortable. Friendly, service minded and competent staff.
Some noise from street, but it is a central location.
If you are not into the full English breakfast the selection is limited.

We have just returned from this hotel, the reception staff very pleasant, location near rail station and close to centre, car parking close by. The room was comfortable and well decorated, very clean (except the dirty toilet brush, which I am sure housekeeping have now rectified). Complimentary bottled water and fruit, it is on a busy road but they have good secondary double glazed windows. They also have a lovely Korean restaurant on the same site which we would recommend. We didn't do breakfast, felt 11 pounds a little pricey when so many restaurants coffee shops on the doorstep.

Booked the family room as there were 3 of us travelling, comfortable, spacious room, huge bathroom, fruit, biscuits,bottled water all complimentary. Beds really comfy, staff lovely. Breakfast a bit pricey, but plenty of nearby option. Would not hesitate to sty there again.

Room Tip: Family room was really lovely

Just a few steps from the station, makes it easy to time your dash to the London train, but you are not in the prettiest part of old Oxford, and it's a little walk to the colleges, but there are plenty of restaurants nearby. Set on a busy intersection, so light sleepers might get woken by traffic from 7AM. Complimentary water, teas and coffees, biscuits, and fruits were nice touches that made one feel well hosted. Staff pleasant. Didn't try the breakfast, as there are other more interesting options nearby.
