I stayed here for one night on a business trip - so here are the results:
Location was great for me - I was working in Oxford but wanted to stay outside - so a short run in the morning to work.
Parking was fine - lots of room - so no issues there.
The hotel is large and low level fairly new - no zircon in the room that I had - but that wasn't an issue on the day - it may be during the warmer weather, but my room was a suite with double aspect so windows could be opened plus I noted the provision of an electric fan in a cupboard should it be required.
The room was nice - as I said I had a suite (normal cost is around £200 per night I understand?) Comfortable and large - the bed unfortunately was only a normal size, it would have been nice to have a king size in such a large room. Bathroom was good, with a tub and separate shower, very nice and roomy.
Sleep quality was OK with no noise or disturbance and good if you have to catch up on work!
Facilities - I didn't really use, but I understand there is a gym and a spa - so all good!
Eating - bar and restaurant - the bar is fine - large area with plenty of seating - Limited on 'real ale' and providing the usual lager etc on draft - so if you a 'real ale' person - no - it's not good - but otherwise fine.
Restaurant - food was OK - I have had much better, but nothing here to complain about really - it was OK. I thought the menu was a little limited - but again it was fine as I was only there for one night. The service in the restaurant was - well to be honest lacking - and by that I don't mean the staff - the staff were great - BUT - the timing was pretty bad - I am assuming that this was due to maybe limited staff on duty? Whatever it took a long time to get served and also between courses - this may be OK for some people but - for me two and a half hours took up a lot of my evening and I needed to work. So - it's maybe a small point?
Front desk staff - great - so - overall a nice hotel - could be better - but - overall - well done!
