Very Good8.0
A great weekend, just one thing.
We were very happy will our stay at the hotel. The only reason for a slightly lower score for cleanliness is because we found that the spa changing area was in a significantly lower standard than the rest of the hotel. The changing area was not very clean and some of the lockers were broken. It's a shame as the pool was very nice and I had a very good spa treatment. Our rooms and the other public areas were of a high standard. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the restaurant. All the staff were polite and helpful.

De Vere Oxford Thames
Nice but pool area let it down.
Illness meant could not fully enjoy hotel. Called reception to see if Doctor on call. No. Asked for local Doctor, non known off, told to call 111. Googled myself and found Health Centre 3 mile away, called and got straight in so not a great help from hotel. Hotel seemed very nice, bar area comfortable, room very nice. Pool area a little tired, odd mould smell in steam room, desk left unattended so had to use phone to call someone and be given towels. Needs better cleaning. Nice location backing onto the Thames.
