Everything was really nice and the food was brilliant. Room was spotlessly clean as was the rest of the hotel. Ground were well maintained and nice to walk around. Reception staff realy went out of their way to be helpful with advice on Restaurants in Oxford. The park and ride into Oxford was a real help as well. Would have...

My room was in the modern garden room area and it was very noisy when other guests opened or closed doors. There was no charging point close to the bed. The staff were very good without exception. The food was variable, some very nice and breakfast selection was OK although the bread was un-exciting. This was a business trip so...

Had the most brilliant weekend escape with friends. This is such a beautiful location, with the perfect mix of old world charm and elegant contemporary design. We stayed in one of the garden rooms which was luxuriously decorated, spacious and included some lovely details. We loved the bathroom, the double doors onto our own private outdoor seating area, the view...

Beautiful room over looking the lake was such a luxury, especially as we were able to walk right onto the terrace outside and out for a morning walk! Made good use of the swimming facilities and was wonderfully catered for when we told them last moment we had a lactose intolerant. Felt very well looked after, and would recommend for...

Nice side of room (standard room). Clean and tidy. Spacious. Great for relax. Nice place to stay if you visit Oxford. Bus stop outside. Taxis for less than 10 pounds you go to the center of Oxford. Big beds and nice to sleep as it is so quite. Good breakfast in the morning!

Spacious room with very comfortable and large king size bed. Nice bar area and food was of a good standard. Lovely setting and the spa offers a good choice of treatments.

I met with my very good friend for a weekend of catching up. The hotel was perfect - far enough from Oxford to feel we were in the country and close enough for a spot of Christmas shopping.

While spending time before a customer visit I stopped by this place for lunch. The lobby/bar area was comfortable and the lunch (egg/mayo) sandwich was very tasty. Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity to stay for the night but I will definitely try this one out next time I am around Oxford
