Stayed 2 x nights in an Indulgence room. Amazing view of the river. Breakfast was first class as were the young ppl that served us. Everyone was so professional and friendly. 5 minute walk into the city of Oxford. Ticked all the boxes for me & my husband, will definitely return.

Beautifully situated hotel with views over the river and ten minutes’ walk to the city centre. Very nicely decorated and well-appointed rooms with free Wi-Fi (but no plug in the washbasin and, like many Brit hotels, annoyingly no face flannels). Exceptionally friendly and helpful reception staff, very good breakfast and restaurant (see separate review)

Room Tip: Get a river view.

Revisiting Oxford after 20 years, I was lucky to find the Head of the river! What a beautiful room, with view of the river. The staff was extremely friendly. The food and the beer were exellent! The old city just around the corner! I will return

Excellent place. We were there to see our daughter present her case in a law suite competition at the Oxford University. We didn't know what to expect or when we would be arriving. Since it was our first time to Oxford, England. We arrived late due to our flight and bus schedules and your staff was great in helping us check in. They waited till 1130pm and we were taken to our room. The room was very nice with comfortable bed. Next morning when we woke to a beautiful view of the river. Had a great breakfast (eggs Benedict), included in our stay. Religious!!!! Very picturesque!!!!

This was a delightful place to stay in Oxford. Very welcoming and cosy and a great view over the River Thames/Isis. Also, great location to get to places of interest around Oxford! The food and service were both great here (I would definitely recommend trying the bacon!).
