Recently stayed at this hotel as part of a business trip for two nights (Friday and Saturday).
We arrived Friday evening to find two (yes two not one!) discos in full flow with loud music pervading all public areas, making conversation with our guests impossible. Whilst dinner, bed and breakfast had been booked the hotel would not or could not accommodate 10 people on one table which meant the group was split. The discos were not Christmas functions, but a regular Friday night fixture so be warned. The whole bar area was filled with smoke which came in through the constantly opening automatic doors from all the chain smokers outside.
The only good news was that our room was at the back of the hotel, several minutes from reception. This walk however confirmed our expectations for the rest of the stay, dated décor, damaged walls not to mention the mould stains. On arrival at our room, parts of the carpet were thread bare and the ceiling exhibited several brown stains from previous leaks. The bed was not much better with the wife complaining she was like the little duck sleeping with the hippo (I have been called worse) as the bed offered no support and we both found ourselves in the middle. To cap it all there was a leak in the bathroom which we asked to be fixed Saturday morning.
The breakfast food was of a slightly higher standard than the room, but nothing special. Basic tables without tablecloths and a very cheap paper napkin to accompany very cheap cutlery.
The rooms were £120/night for dinner bed and breakfast, cheap for a hotel in Oxford. I guess you get what you pay for. We will not be staying again.
