Ideal location for Oxord City Centre, only a couple of minutes walk from the station and to the Town Centre. Service was very good and great attention to detail in the rooms. Room was a little hot, could have done with better instructions for the air conditioning but all in all a great place to stay.

Second time I have stayed here. Room,breakfast and other services were excellent. Helpful reception staff too. Will definitely stay here again. Great location as it is near the business school where my conference was held. Also very near the train station so don't need to carry my baggage very far

Overall great location, close to town centre and shops, colleges, all within walking distance. Staff friendly and keen to assist with queries. Daily fruit, biscuits etc were nice. Room was comfy, spacious and good bathroom facilities. I liked the shower! The only negative if I have to say, was the very high bed, I had to literally climb to get... More

Great location of the hotel as it is close to public transport and the city centre. Even though the hotel is close to the train station the rooms are very quiet. Good choice of amenities. The staff was also very friendly.

From the outside the hotel looks unappealing. Also location is at a busy intersection. However, it has several positive attributes. 1. Recently modernized 2. Noise reduction windows help at the busy location 3. Best shower in England during our 2 week journey 4. Air conditioned!! 5. Price fair Don't eat breakfast. It is 11 pounds pp.

This hotel was perfect for a 2 night stay on a hen weekend - ideal location to some great restaurants and bars all within a few minutes walk from the hotel. The train station is 2 minutes walk away, and the car parking in Staples car park was easy, secure and so convenient (a few doors down from hotel). The... More
