This place looks wonderful from the outside and our room was full of character - in the original part of the building. I think we were pleased we had paid a bit extra for the room. It was huge, comfortable and well appointed.
The only disappointment was the bathroom - it was clean and had everything you needed. But did look tired - cracked floor tiles, dusty cotton buds, toilet made a squeak after a minute of flushing. It didn't spoil our stay but would have been 5 star if the bathroom had been better.
Staff were polite and smiley, except one of the breakfast staff - she was a bit grumpy and hardly smiled at anyone. Breakfast had good choice and was in the restaurant. We also ate at the restaurant one night. Good food and lovely waiter.
It was expensive but then it is comparable to other oxford hotels prices so just suppose it is priced to its market. If they could update the bathrooms I think it would be worth the price a bit more.
