I've stayed here quite a few times over the last ten years. It is without pretence, the rooms are sizeable, furnishings good, the staff always very attentive.The position is very good,it is pleasantly located close to the River Thames and for access to Oxford City centre, a ten minute walk along the main road, or you can use the tow path by the river for part of the way (to Folly Bridge) it would take a few minutes in a taxi, but traffic can be quite bad near rush hours. Because of its layout it is quite peaceful in the rooms, even when the hotel is full.It is usually possible to park close to an entrance near your room, which is convenient. Check-in is efficient, the desk staff usually very pleasant. I would not particularly recommend the cuisine for a sit down meal, but quite adequate for a snack or if you don't wish to go out.The Bar staff are very attentive and the drinks are not , unfortunately the bar has a large TV screen usually showing sport, which I hate (except when I want to see something) A TV lounge would be a good idea. The breakfast can be a bit of a scramble at weekends, notably on Sunday mornings, early is the best option, whilst others are having a lay-in.
All in all this is a good choice for a weekend or short break.
