Great hotel - cool interiors, great food and for a reasonable price! What’s not to love?!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 2 May 2023via mobile
This is what hotels should be like! The interiors are brilliant - calming, comfy and on trend. The little courtyard is fabulous and with the doors open on a sunny spring evening you could have been in a very cool Palm Springsesque hotel!
Friendly welcome from the reception team and the complimentary tea and coffee was great - only comment was that tell people about it, it helps set you apart!
Food and drinks in the diner were great and it was great to see it was busy.
Lovely room with great toiletries, comfy bed and lovely shower. Great to get a decent hairdryer to use along with straighteners.
Real plus point for us was the convenience of being able to prebook an EV charging point for our car.
In summary - we loved everything about Mollie’s; reasonable cost which didn’t come at the expense of service, rooms, facilities or a great time. We will be back - in the meantime the UK needs more Mollie’s!

          On my way home from a Birthday weekend at Mollie’s and felt that it would be important to leave a review of our time spent here for anyone considering it for their next trip. On the whole the experience has been a very mixed bag.
          First off - the Motel itself is beautiful, as aesthetically pleasing as the images online, well thought out room designs, beautiful products and appliances (if we can use that word - meaning the Dyson hairdryer and GHD straighteners!). However, the staff was a very mixed bag. We had booked 3 rooms for 2 nights for a family birthday (however no well wishes received) and felt that the service was less than we would expect from Soho House. Saturday we had very attentive people working on reception, but on Sunday and Monday this was less so - for example when ordering (none complimentary coffees) we were told we couldn’t have actual cups as there were not enough left - so my sister and I took it into our own hands to “resource some” which we feel the receptionist could have done if she was bothered. In total we must have spent around £1000 at Mollie’s this weekend.
          The diner was also very hit and miss. We had 4 meals in total (diner, pudding and two breakfasts) and felt that the service and food varied greatly on these. We felt that we were having to make lots of requests for simple things (but did appreciate that it was very busy) however it certainly did not feel like an easy dining experience and I would probably not choose to eat here again. I also felt awful sending back my (plant based) sausages and felt I couldn’t do the same again the next day without feeling like too much of a complainer.On the whole - Motel and faculties great, staff less so, perhaps we just fell short due to a busy weekend.

          Room tip: I would recommend planning one or two meals in the diner and finding other restaurants nearby.

          We were going to be in the area for a couple of different things and Mollie’s suited in terms of location plus we loved the look of the place.
          Overall, it is a really nice hotel and is just as nice aesthetically in real life as it looks in the photos. The bed was super comfy and everything was really clean. Also really loved the water stations on each floor where you could get either chilled water or boiling water for your coffee/tea.
          There were a couple of slightly annoying things that I think are basics and am always surprised when a hotel doesn’t get it right:
          - the lighting everywhere was generally poor, in the hallway/stairwell it was basically non-existent, and in the room you couldn’t isolate any of the lights - it was all or nothing.
          - the curtains weren’t dark enough and the pelmet didn’t come down far enough so it got light pretty quickly in the morning
          - the two mirrors are both right by the door in the very poorly lit entrance way
          - lovely rainfall shower but no separate shower head so it was interesting showering whilst trying not to get my hair wet!
          We would stay again as it served a purpose and looked good doing it, but just a couple of things that could make it perfect!

          Best place. Great service, great value. Perfect parking and so close to the Diner. Been here several times. Good beds, and shower. Cant fault it. Glad to see the brand is expanding. Shame it is in such an isolated location

          The decor in the motel is stylish and contemporary, the beds and pillows very comfortable and everywhere felt clean and fresh.

          The hot/cold water taps in the corridors is a novel idea and the free access to various teas, coffee etc. in the lobby is very welcome.

          Decor in the bathroom is again attractive and the waterfall shower was lovely, as were the Cowshed products. I also loved the Dyson hairdryer and the GHD straighteners (made me realise mine need to be updated as they were so nice to use!).

          We ate dinner and breakfast at the diner. In the evening, it was very busy and had a lively atmosphere but service was quick. The server who seated us immediately brought us two glasses of complimentary Prosecco because we were celebrating our anniversary which was a lovely touch.

          All the food we had was tasty and very filling! The milkshakes were creamy and the perfect thickness for drinking through a straw.

          In the morning, we had breakfast at Mollie’s. It was much quieter and chilled than the evening service. The Eggs Benedict was excellent and the waitress happily gave us tips on how to drive and park in Oxford.

          We would definitely return.

          Exceptional value for money, easy parking, great food, comfortable rooms.

          We hope they create more Mollie’s all around the country.
