The hotel is in a quiet location and offers excellent value when compared with hotels in Oxford city centre so it's a good option if you don't mind commuting the 5 miles to town and back each day. It's situated right next to Oxford United FC's Kassam Stadium and has its own car park. If you don't have a car getting around takes a bit of effort. The Oxford Bus Company and Stagecoach have good services into town that run about every 10 minutes. You can get a weekly travel card on either for 13GBP. The nearest bus stop is however 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel through a residential estate and then the bus ride takes about half an hour. The buffet breakfast was very nice, although the only cooked option appears to be scrambled eggs and sausages. The hotel doesn't have a restaurant but the cinema/bowling complex at the other side of the stadium has a few restaurants attached to it, including Indian, Chinese and Frankie & Bennys. The Indian one offers a discount to hotel guests. The hotel room was comfortable, the only slight problem I had was keeping the heating and ventilation at a satisfactory level. Other than that nothing was any bother and there were no disturbances.
