My husband and I spent the weekend in Oxford, since we were out from morning till eve, we didn't need much more than a clean bed, hot (en-suite) shower and breakfast, which is exactly what we got. A big plus for The River Hotel is that it is just around the corner from the train station (so need to take a taxi or drag a suitcases for kilometers on end). It is also a 10min walk from the city center and all the attractions - very convenient. We never needed to make use of public transport to get around, since the hotel was so close to everything. The hotel has a lovely garden overlooking the river and the landladies were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was quiet and clean. Breakfast was great, a wide variety with bottomless coffee or tea. A few minor issues - the internet reception was bad upstairs, so we had to use it in the bar lounge, the mattress in our room (room 15) is worn out. It squeaks and one rolls to the middle of the bed. DEFINITELY needs replacing. Our room was also very small - so if you have a backpack, you will fit it in, but a larger suitcase is problematic.
