I booked this hotel as something different for our anniversary. I paid £169 for a double room (NOT including breakfast), which is a little over what we would usually pay.
When we got to the room it was not like I expected, it was very small to the point when we opened the door it skimmed the double bed. We had to then shuffle round to get past the end of the bed and the TV stand. The bathroom was nice and clean but lacked any luxury that you may expect for the price.
The door did not lock properly do we used the chain that was available. We were woken up at 8am the following morning due to other guests doors banging very loudly. You would think that they would do something to prevent this.
We paid £15 per day for a "valet" service car park but we didn't see a valet at any time.
We did not complain at the Time as maybe I thought my expectations were to high. But looking back I have since emailed my concerns.
It is on the other hand located in the middle of Oxford and in a great location. (I understand that some of the price would be due to this) although our room view was overlooking the back of other buildings...
It will not be a hotel that I will be recommending to anyone, which is a Shane as the reception and staff are lovely and welcoming.
