“Best value, best location, best service in Oxford!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2011

The Richmond is our home away from home! My son is an international university student and our family and friends visit him regularly for extended stays. The staff and management are always accessible, extremely helpful, attentive and always friendly. They truly care about their guests and have gone out of their way on numerous occasions to make us comfortable and happy. The rooms are spacious and accommodating; the hotel’s location is in a quiet neighborhood on a safe street. The rooms are well-kept; linens are crisp and clean, delivered by a linen service, and beds have cozy duvets. We fully enjoy starting the day with a hearty breakfast (not the typical plastic-wrapped muffin and box of juice)! Travellers will not find a more reasonably priced accommodation, in such a centrally located area, ANYWHERE in Oxford.

I would recommend this place for people who do not want the regular touristy fare. You will be staying in a lovely neighborhood called Jericho and yet within 5 min walk to all the nice places in Oxford. The attached middle eastern restaurant makes this a great place for visiting scholars and international students.

The Richmond is a quiet and very friendly place where I come regularly, always with the same pleasure. The staff is eager to make sure that you appreciate your stay, rooms are comfortable, spacious and well-equipped (fridge, TV, desk). The hotel is located very close to the city centre and to the area of Jericho, which is a very good place in Oxford to find pubs, trendy restaurants, cinemas, shops... Not to mention that the Richmond is associated to an excellent Lebanese restaurant where breakfast is served. Last advantage : it must be among the cheapest hotels you can find so close from Oxford lively areas !!

I booked a double room for my parents when they came to visit me during February and we all found the experience really nice. The location, Jericho, is excellent, the room condition is much better than many other hotels, and you can't find another similar hotel with such reasonable rates. Also, the staff is more than friendly and welcoming. My parents don't speak English, so I truly appreciate the help Richmond's staff has given to them. They even found my parents might want extra pillows (which they did) and offered them... In fact, many of my friends said they would like to accommodate their parents there if they visit in the future. So, I highly recommend this hotel to people who don't expect a seven-star hotel experience with £50 per night...

I have stayed at this hotel perhaps a couple of dozen times over the last five years. I come to Oxford for business and pleasure (I am an academic, and I used to live there), and so I am familiar with the accommodation options. What keeps bringing me back to the Richmond are the following: extremely reasonable rates (single room £40 per night, and a double is even better value); good location, in a quiet residential suburb called Jericho, which is only a five minute walk from the city centre; friendly and welcoming staff. I also love the fact that the Richmond is above one of the best Lebanese restaurants in the Southeast of England (though it does not serve till very late, so this does not interfere with a good night's sleep).

I have read some rather negative comments about the Richmond on Tripadvisor, and I am honestly at a loss to know how they can have come about. For the price, I don't see what more guests can expect. I want a simple, clean, no-fuss, well-located, reliable option when I come on my visits to Oxford, and on that basis the Richmond is a bargain. If you want 4* fripperies, then this place is perhaps not for you. But you should be able to work that one out from the price....

We´ve been to the Richmond hotel ten years after our first visit. The location of the hotel is still excellent: in a calm residential area but still very close to the center, and we remembered the Lebanese breakfast we had back then.

In 2011, the situation was somewhat different: the breakfast was very basic, and the cleanliness of the rooms (esp. the bathroom) had clear deficits. You would not expect these type of bathrooms in a hotel, but rather in a hostel or somewhere in a 3rd world country. The staff did only their core duties - it was impossible to get anything apart from standard (e.g. change ingredients in the breakfast).

I did not find any pictures fo the hotel on the internet - and now I know the reason why ...

The positives here are the price and location. Unfortunately noise was an issue (it's above a restaurant that opens late), the bathroom was mouldy, bedroom was dusty and had a spider's web, other amenities were broken, the receptionist rude and offered no apology for the lack of service. It wasn't possible to speak to the manager so we wrote to the hotel following our stay. No reply was forthcoming so we consulted Citizen's Advice. After the Office Of Fair Trading issued a deadline to the hotel we received a partial refund but still no response from the manager.

If you need a cheap bed in Jericho in hurry and use earplugs then this hotel can be of use. If you want good service from a customer-oriented business, look elsewhere.
