What a waste of building with so much potential. A great location right next to the train station and only a short walk to town. The room was last decorated in the last 70s and left that way ever since. Poorly maintained with mould on the curtains, a warped flooring, flaking and patchy paint on the walls. As a 80s...

Stayed in room 3 in the Annex, and while the sheets were clean, the duvet had cigarette burns on them. In general, the whole place was barely surface-level cleaned. My sink had dirt around the basin; there was a clipped toenail on the carpet and dust where it clearly hadn't been vacuumed in some time; the walls need to be...

We have been a number of times just to the cafe for breakfast.. it's very good value for money. If you ask nicely they may be able to do black pudding as well . Completing a very good breakfast :-) p.s. the sausages are good quality not what they look like on the menu. .

We were suppose to stay one night only, thinking we would get a good price-quality. Instead it was so dirty and we were treated with such disrespect that we needed to go somewhere else. Bathroom didn't have showerhead (only bath), room felt dirty and when looking closer there were 10+ hairs on the bed and a few unidentifiable other green...

This is not a boutique hotel, however, and a big however at that, the beds are very comfortable, our rooms were clean and uncluttered, breakfast was good. The shower wasn't great but allowed us to wash our hair in the morning. For what we paid and what we needed (five friends on a weekend away) it was perfect. It does...

After arriving at the west gate hotel the manager thought we were getting a deal for £66 a night. (Annexe Room 5) This was not the case!! Infact I wouldn't have let my dog sleep in there. Shower was disgusting and not useable. The room was dingy and grotty with cobwebs and general dust covering the room!! (Reminded me of...

Great place to stay, thanks to Steve who was looking after the place and made us feel really welcome, a true gent. Accommodation, breakfast, welcome were first class. We will be visiting again. Hope you save some of the Pickerings gin behind the bar for the next trip. Yeah, bad parking, but that's the whole of oxford.

We were unfortunate enough to not have decided on a hotel in advance of our one night stay in Oxford. The only place that we could book was the Westgate Hotel. We found spending the night there very uncomfortable mainly because of the uncleanliness of the place. The building is very dirty and poorly maintained. In fact, when we were...
