“Small, conveniently located hotel”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

This is a great centrally located hotel so if you want to do a little sightseeing, it is a great place to be located in. The room is small and minimally furnished so don't expect too much. There is free wifi provided although the signal is intermittent at best.
If I were to be back in Oxford, I would most probably try out another hotel in the area.

I've seen a lot of reviews here that seem to expect the Ritz. Well, the VHH is not the Ritz. But it's not the pits either. It is perfect for cheap solo or group travel with friends when a central location, secure bed and affordable rate is required. I got exactly what I wanted out of this hotel - a good night's sleep - and the staff were nice, so it seems harsh to give it any less than this. Although I couldn't find the pool or the spa and conference centre.

Room Tip: I was in one called 'Christ Church' and it was not unlike the real Christ Church, but a lot...

This hotel does have a very central location, but the room we stayed in was quite small and the matress on the bed was worn out. The service from the staff was friendly and an adequate breakfast was served in the room. The worst aspect of the hotel was the noise from the night club below (even in a third floor room). Due to this, and the lack of facilities, I do not recommend this hotel.

I was disappointed by this hotel. The receptionists were nice, but the managers never seemed to be accessible. The room was very small, although it was clean. The shower room was cramped, with no space to put a cosmetics/toilet bag or similar. The light over the mirror wasn't working; and the hot water was very slow to come through. Most disappointingly, the wi-fi didn't work. I specifically checked that this hotel advertised wi-fi on its website. When I complained I got no direct response from the management, and no solution either.

Breakfast was served in the room (the hotel has no dining room). OK, but cramped in this small room.

I booked this hotel wanting a central city location. Maybe I should have expected the thumping bass from a nearby event, which went on till 2.30 a.m., but had hoped to avoid this on a Thursday. And there is also a noisy central heating unit or similar just outside the window. So I'd have been better off with a B&B in a quieter location, at about half the price.

The location of the hotel is excellent, but that is also the most possitive about it, the rooms are small and you can hardly pass each other when two people is in the room. Breakfast is ok and served in the room, but you have no space for eating. There were no hot water in the tap, allthough the shower had hot water.

My wife and I stayed at the VICTORIA HOUSE HOTEL for 4 nights while my wife went to an academic conference at Oxford University. We chose this Hotel because of its excellent location. We were horrified at the results. If there were reasonably priced alternatives available in Oxford available we would have certainly moved on after the first night. But we could find no alternative.

This is a dirty, dirty, dirty hotel. My wife discovered that her bed had a URINE soaked and stained mattress. The mattress was still wet.

And the local bars had loud street noise till 2 AM.

I intend on reporting this Hotel to the local civil authorities in Oxford.

At £95 per night for a small double room we found this hotel very overpriced. However, it was in a very good location and maybe that is what you pay for. Breakfast in your room with nowhere to sit and eat it was a surprise but the breakfast was adequate. The room was clean but badly needed refurbishment as did the rest of the hotel i.e. stairs (no lift) and reception (tiny). The room was warm and we were on the 3rd floor so didn't suffer any noise disturbance. There was a car park nearby but it would have cost £3.50 an hour and we didn't need our car for the 2 days and nights we were there. The staff were helpful in finding a cheaper parking space for one of us and a free space a bus ride away for another of us. We would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back or on a high floor.
