My partner and I stayed on one of the Sunday deals where you dine at the restaurant spending over £75 and then get a room for £1. This deal was utterly fab. We upgraded to a larger room with roll-top bath for an extra £20 so it was a total bargain!
The room, including the bathroom was 3 cells large. Bathroom was luxurious, bed was very comfy and the service was great. We asked for extra coffee, bubbles and all the goodies you get in the room and the staff were happy to bring them all to us. We had several baths and they just kept bringing the extra bubbles as we wanted them, each time with a smile.
The restaurant was wonderful. Excellent value and quality. Service was wonderful too. Liz and the French Lady there could not be helpful enough. Atmosphere was lovely and even nicer at breakfast. Porridge was lovely too....and I usually dont like porridge! You didnt feel like a cheapie by the staff despite staying on the cheap deal, so you were made to feel really special. A real 4 star experience all round!
At the end of our stay they held on to our bags all day once we'd seen the whole of Oxford. This was free and no hassle.
We parked at the Park & Ride on your way into Oxford which then drops you off virtually outside the hotel so parking for the 2 days cost us less than £3.
Excellent hotel. Great staff. Really interesting hotel concept too.
P.S. Ladies, the light in the room was a bit rubbish to put your make on, thats my only complaint. I'm sure other rooms have better light, but that was my experience of the 3 cell roll top bath room.
