Cotswold Lodge Hotel

Reviewed 7 December 2017

Our Club held a Christmas Lunch here in early December. Service was excellent with polite and friendly staff, who negotiated three long tables with a variety of dishes pre-ordered. The starter of smoked salmon pate was excellent. The roast beef necessitated a request for a steak knife to cut the perfectly cooked but very tough meat. One of my companions sent their plate back and had a replacement alternative roast turkey was declared to be an improvement. The pannacotta dessert was sizeable but lacking flavour. A diamond shaped lozenge of gelled fruit failed to liven the dish. Overall the ambience was warm and welcoming. The food good in parts. Staff very obliging.

No problems. Room was fine, and clean - it was rather too hot, but better when the window was open. Hotel is in a convenient position to walk into Oxford. Probably about 15 minutes. (Thank heavens for free parking, a real plus point in Oxford) but there is a bus if the weather is bad. Hotel nicely decorated for Christmas with friendly staff. The menu and food in the restaurant could do with some attention.

I wanted to visit Oxford for a night and not stay in a generic hotel. I did some research and the Cotswold Lodge Hotel looked like a good choice. I purchased the bed+breakfast package, which included a full English breakfast in the hotel's restaurant. The room, for a single, was small but comfortable and it overlooked the courtyard. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It's about a 15 minute walk to central Oxford, but you pass by many of the colleges on the way. You can also choose to walk through the University Park for a more scenic stroll. All in all, I would definitely stay here again in the future.

What a warm welcoming place, everything about this hotel is top notch and more.
Close to Oxford City and the new Westgate shopping centre. Loads of Places to visit, museums, galleries and the diversity of restaurants so you would never run out of choices

We were rushed to our evening meal and I specifically asked for a Ribeye Steak Raer to Medium. When it arrived it was medium to well done. I sent it back and they cooked it further and it arrived very well done. I returned it agin and I received a new steak Medium. The presentation was awful it had just been thrown on the plate.

There was a Christmas Party going on and all their efforts were on this. We were a pain in their side in my opinion as we were the only people in the restaurant.
