“Great service”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

Located near the rail station. Lots of history and character. The room was quiet, despite other posts stating otherwise. Noticed there were a second set of windows installed that kept out the noise.

Had to carry bags to our room, but not a big deal.

Room Tip: Crazy looking giant spoon thingy in the bathroom. Have no idea was it's for.

The location is ideal for the Said Business School and for seeing Oxford. The room was clean and very comfortable. A fine accommodation. While the breakfast may be too large and too expensive for those who prefer a roll and coffee to start the day, there are shops closeby.

Check in staff were polite and helpful. Carried my bag up to the second floor (no lift). Room 203 was quiet, at the back of the hotel. The view wasn't up to much, air conditioners and industrial ducting, but there was very little traffic noise. The room was quite stuffy and airless. I had to have the air con on all the time. The bed was comfortable, if a little high, but I didn't like the pillows much, very squishy and lacking support. Generous tea, coffee, and hot chocolate supplies, bottled water, biscuits and fruit. But I wasn't too impressed with the breakfast at £11 a head, all the usual cereal, pastries, fruit juice, toast and a full English, but it was expensive.
I parked in the nearest public car park and paid a very steep fee for doing so, but was cross to discover that the hotel has an arrangement with the Staples store nearby at £5 for hotel residents to park overnight. No one told me and there was no mention of it at check in. I only know now because I have read it on here. Very annoying

Whilst we find the location of the hotel to be very good and the room itself to be spacious, comfortable and with good aircon and bathroom, what really struck us was the incredible approach to service - efficient, eager to please without being obsequious, anticipating our needs and making excellent suggestions - right from the first words uttered by reception, we felt welcomed and cared about

Stayed here for 2 nights and have to agree with recent reviews. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. The location is great for the bus and train stations. It is on the edge of the main town but there are numerous restaurants within 3 minutes walk (George's street, where the bus station is). The shopping areas are less than a 10 minute stroll away.

It was built in 1930, so although it has been extensively refurbished and public areas feel more modern, it has creaking floorboards and sound can be heard between rooms. Also, if you have accessibility issues - check with the hotel first.

I asked for a quiet room so they gave me a room at the back (103), which was a little on the dark side but had no noise from the road. The amenities in the room were 4 star.

Overall, a pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are brighter, but may have some traffic noise.

This was my fourth time to stay in the Royal Oxford. This time we had a large group of people over for a family wedding. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Could not have asked for better service.The hotel is in a perfect location walking distance to town and one minute walk to train station. Thank you.

The hotel is very clean and exceeds it's 3 stars in several ways. The complimentary fruit was a lovely surprise. The breakfast is delicious and vastly superior to most hotel experiences. The central location is excellent for a city break in Oxford. The staff are wonderful and worth 6 stars! They are very friendly, knowledgeable and extremely helpful and would be a credit to any hotel.
