We decided to visit this hotel to meet up with family, mainly because of an award it was given from a local radio station for the quality of it's restaurant.

The staff were all really friendly.

After looking at the hotel's website, I expected a large, clean restaurant but it was, in actual fact, just a bar with very tired furniture. Perhaps the dining room was somewhere else?

We visited on a Sunday, and expected a lavish buffet. There was enough Thai and Indian food on offer, but the Carvery was rather disappointing. The roast was quite tough and the gravy bland. My son enjoyed the Tandoori Chicken and Pilau rice.

Overall, I was rather disappointed with the visit as I didn't experience or see what was shown on the hotel's website.

We are dissapointed to hear that we did not live up to your expectations. The restaurant is situated next to the pub and has a very different decor to the pub.

We do take your comments on board and plans are in place to recorate the Pub in near future.

In terms of the Buffet menu we try to incoporate new menus and in case you do fell let down by any of the dishes please let the staff know immediately as we would like to improve your experience and rectify the mistake.

Just returned from a really lovely stay at the Tree Hotel! Very clean room, excellent comfy bed, generous tea/coffee/biscuit supplies & friendly helpful staff. We ate at the restaurant & were impressed with the quality & wide choice of food & wine, & loved the breakfasts in the pub, enjoying scrambled egg & smoked salmon, fat herby sausages & tasty bacon. Would recommend staying here for comfort, cleanliness & the beautiful walk along the tow path into Oxford, especially on a frosty morning!! Needs a bit of modernising/redecorating (some being done while we were there) but plusses outweigh this by far - & once this happens I guess it will reflect in an inflated price. We thought pretty good value at £78 a night. Go & check it out!

my boyfriend and i stayed here for three nights in august 2008 and it was a lovely experience. it was actually the first stop on our 8 week trip around western europe and was everything we had hoped for. the biggest problem that we had was finding the hotel when we got in to oxford (we flew to gatwick then took a coach to glocester green station in the centre of oxford). this was resolved with a quick stop at the tourist office for a map. you can take a bus from the city centre and then walk about 5 mins, or take a 30 min walk from town down the thames path to the iffley lock, which is a gorgeous walk down the river (but if you've just been on a 10 hour overnight flight and a 2 hour bus i'd recommend calling a cab from town to take you straight there). we walked the path every day and wandering at iffley lock and feeding the ducks was a favorite activity during our stay.

we had a small double room which was cozy enough for us but if you're used to north american style spacious hotel rooms you might want to consider getting the larger double. we had a large bed, full ensuite bathroom, chair, desk with a kettle, tea, coffee, and cookies, and a wardrobe. everything was clean and we had a lovely view of the backyard. the staff were very helpful and friendly.

the breakfast is very filling and quite a bit heavier than what we're used to eating but was fresh and tasty. the one night we ate at the restaurant, the food was good but the service was incredibly slow, we were there for 2.5 hours for a meal that we could have been done with in under an hour! but the pub just around the corner from the hotel is fast, fresh and absolutely delicious! if you're looking for other excellent food in oxford, go straight to Jamie's Italian... one of the best meals of our trip!

Thank you for taking time to review the Hotel.

Please accept our unconditional apologies for the slow service during your meal. The main reasons for this is that we had a big group dinnig at the bar which slowed things down considerably.

The Tree Hotel is set in a lovely location and we were glad of the peaceful location after being in the city.
The walk along the canal into Oxford is a must.

The staff are friendly and willing to do that bit extra. Rooms comfortable & clean. The food was brilliant, compliments to the cheff!

Only suggestion to the management is for fans in rooms during the summer as it gets pretty warm at night.

This is a little gem. The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff is a feature, as is the excellent food ranging through English, Indian and Thai. It is a place where you can unwind and relax in quiet, pleasant surroundings. The rooms were clean and generous supplies of tea, coffee and biscuits were supplied daily.
It is located in the charming village of Iffley close to Iffley lock and a half-hour’s walk along the river tow-path to Oxford. If you value good old-fashioned hospitality with good food and drink available all day, this comes highly recommended.
