I stayed for one night with my family for a visit to Oxford.
The staff at the hotel were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms were nice, with good bathing facilities and bedding. I especially liked the comfortable pillows.
However, my family and I found the dinner to be of a low quality. Despite the friendly staff, there were not many menu options and my food didn't arrive steaming hot. Additionally, my family and I could tell that some of the dishes came from the freezer (such as the desserts) and had been heated up. One of my family members starters arrived burnt which we found to be disappointing.
However, breakfast and the selections on offer for it the following morning definitely made up for it.
Another issue that we had was that the cleaning staff entered our rooms whilst we were in the middle of eating our breakfast. This was well before the check out time and we felt that our privacy had been breached. We also found this to be quite disappointing.
It would have been better if the cleaners came at their appointed times and not beforehand, as we were not ready to leave yet and had timed ourselves anyway so we could leave well on time. It was as if the hotel was eager to shift us out early to cater for their next guests.
