The Hotel is a standard 4* quality hotel. Clean, spacious and very confortable rooms and service are a plus. Unappily, the location it is not the best for central Oxford access, at least in weekdays. The Hotel is located 4/5 miles away from central Oxford, so forget any possibility of walking within reasonable time.
I am not sure if was unlucky, but I got always long lines both traveling to central Oxford in the morning and back to the hotel in the evening. In spite of available bus lanes in part of the course, reaching Oxford is not so easy and fast as I would expect. I always used a Taxi to move. Unhappily, there are no Taxis near the Hotel, and you have to call and wait for 15 min (average/minimum) to get one. From central Oxford is of course faster. Anyway, count on about 10 Pounds each way.
The breakfast is very complete concerning hot dishes, no so much relating the fruits / bread choice; anyway, it is OK for the hotel ranking.
Last but not least, no free WiFi access is unacceptable these days. If this intends to be a business style hotel, does not make sense to require huge payments when sometime one only needs to send a mail or check an address or location.
In short, it is a standard Hotel, with reasonable service but poor location for central Oxford acess.
