This hotel is located just a short 10-15 minute walk outside of Oxfords town centre, but feels like it is removed from all the noise and traffic, which is great. Rooms are clean and spacious with large bathrooms, sofa, TV, hair dryer etc.
Breakfast is a very nice buffet with a huge selection of English and Continental breakfast goodies. Staff are very friendly and helpful, which is just so nice.
The pool is small, but not very busy, so ideal for a relaxed afternoon, and the hotel also features a jacuzzi and steam room.
If you're more the outdoorsy type, leave the hotel through the back exit and make your way along a 2 minute walk through fields to the Thames. From here you can leisurely stroll into Oxford city centre on traffic free walk ways.
The only drawbacks for me were the relatively small parking lot (that gets very busy with what I must presume are not even hotel guests during the day - which means if you arrive early afternoon, you're unlikely to find a parking spot) and the price of the rooms, which I felt was a little on the pricey side. That said, we had a lovely stay and would probably come again.
