I spent 3 nights visiting Oxford area for leisure break in August. I was on my own so wanted to feel safe and welcome. I considered booking a delux but decided on a standard double on low non refundable rate. I was pleased Id not upgraded as it was lovely, very spacious, clean and modern and good VFM. I do agree with earlier review though that beds are harder than id like. Generally quiet in corridors apart from loud door banging as closers quite severe, All staff friendly and helpful, I had a few minor reasons to call down and all dealt with promptly and with a smile. Breakfast good quality and choice, well managed and nice environment. I had room service meal which was really good, filling home cooked not just chain standard heated up fayre. Location is good as its easy to get to from m'ways and easy into Oxford, Blenheim and Bicester etc.

Only slight downside is the location looks a little off putting as you arrive as its in a service area with forecourts, petrol and coach parks etc, but dont be put off all thats unseen once inside. One comment I would make for single travellers is that the park and ride is a short walk away which in daytime is no trouble. You have to cross the service area, up some makeshift steps, walk beside the dual carridigeway a few yards & alongside a nice treelined stream. But in the dark coming back thats not so nice when you are on your own! Though area feels safe and nothing happened, its just quickens your step!

TIP Some rooms at rear overlook leafy banked area and give the impression of being in a nicer location than those overlooking car park and service area. Try for one of those on high floor.

Room Tip: One overlooking leafy areas at rear.

We stayed with our two young children (3 years, 6 months) and grandparents in adjoining rooms. Check in was simple and quick. Car park was close to the main entrance and had a security code and CCTV for added security, not that there seemed to be any reason for extra security, as the pear tree roundabout isn't exactly a hotbed of crime. Rooms were clean and housekeeping staff responded quickly to a few minor issues that came up (needed tissue box filled, adjoining doors were locked, etc.) The room had a cooler/fridge for storing baby food and some milk we purchased at Waitrose, which is less than a five min walk across the parking lot from the hotel entrance. We all enjoyed the squeaky clean swimming pool, which is operated by the on site health club. Breakfast buffet had a good variety of hot and cold options, and staff ensured food was always fresh. All in all, we had a great stay. The only negative was that the beds were too firm for our taste, so we woke up with back pain, but my parents liked the beds. All a matter of personal preference.

We spent 3 nights at the beginning of August here for our wedding anniversary. On arrival Staff were friendly and helpful. Room on 2nd floor was very nice and comfortable and very clean. The hotel is ideal for touring as it is adjacent to a very usefull and efficient park & ride service to Oxford. We had breakfast each day and the quality & service was very good. The bar/restaurant staff were very friendly and helpful but inobtrusive. All in all a very nice hotel.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms seem to be best for quiet.

We chose this Holiday Inn as it offered reasonable value for money for a good quality hotel and free parking (we needed to take two vehicles which would have been difficult and expensive to accommodate nearer to the city centre). The staff on arrival were pleasant, efficient & offered directions and a timetable for the park & ride nearby. The room was large, clean, comfortable & overlooking the quiet and leafy rear of the hotel - which was a welcome bonus. The pool was a lovely bit of relaxation after a day exploring Oxford. We would definitely recommend this hotel especially because of its location when using the brilliant park & ride service, which with the exception of Sundays runs till late at night - perfect for evening drinks & dining in Oxford.

We stayed 2 nights at the Holiday Inn, Oxford in August.
As soon as we arrived the reception staff were very friendly and helpful and booked us in quickly.
The room, on the second floor, was very clean, tidy and smelt fresh.
After unpacking we went down to the bar where the waiters were friendly and helpful and we had a drink
and then ordered some food, which came promptly and it was delicious.
After a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed we went down to a lovely full English cooked breakfast (continental was also available).
After using the Oxford Park & Ride (a five minute walk away) we had a day in Oxford sightseeing then headed back to the hotel
and made use of the facilities (swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jaccuzi).
Then off on the P&r to Oxford to find somewhere to eat, not worrying about getting back as the last bus was not until 11.30pm.
This hotel was perfect for Oxford sightseeing and the park & ride.
