We stayed overnight at this is fabulous hotel after seeing Will Young in concert at the New Theatre (Oxford Apollo as was!). On the High Street - yet with the entrance tucked away down a side street, the hotel is right in the centre of town and convenient for many of Oxford's attractions. Our room was wonderfully quiet and relaxing, sympathetically achieved by a great marriage of the modern with the traditional. The bed was one of best I've slept in and the room lacked for nothing - and included all of those little extras that make such a difference in creating an air of luxury and something so often missing today. Nothing was too much trouble for an attentive and helpful front desk staff. Well done. Our first visit to a Mercure and wish it had been for longer. Worth a trip to Oxford just to stay there. Already planning to return when we go to see Matt Cardle.
We booked a little in advance on line, secured a superior room and achieved a considerable saving on the normal room rate - the icing on the cake! With the actual hotel entrance slightly off the High Street address - we walk passed the hotel twice without even realising that it was there, adding to the experience as the adjacent buildings are worth a look in themselves. See attached photo showing the view from some of the hotel bedrooms.
