Brilliant position right in the middle of Oxford. The building is a bit shabby but the room was clean with nice towels. Breakfast amazing in next door Turl Street Kitchen.

Excellent location 2 min. from the Sheldonian
Fantastic location for Oxford Literary Festival. Delicious breakfast. Lovely basket of fruit every day.The room was large but not deluxe.My room was on the ground floor and the lack of insulation meant that I could hear everything from the upstairs bedroom and really only had one night of good sleep. There was scaffolding right outside my windows although I was only disturbed by hammering one afternoon. I found all the staff very friendly.

If you can use park and ride - do!
Parking was AWFUL. But that's not the hotel's fault. Getting to any car parks is a pain as you have to drive out of town and back in again as Oxford is very bike, rather than car, friendly. We ended up paying a total of £44 for parking while we were there, and we left much earlier than we had planned for this reason. It was quite strange to have to go down to the restaurant to ask someone to check us, but it was fine. Nice additional touches like breakfast bars and fruit at reception. Excellent location in walking distance of everything.

Fair 4.0
Not worth the money. Style over substance.
I didn't enjoy my stay. I missed that it was a shared bathroom. For £100 I expect my own bathroom. The room was also tiny. So small I had nowhere to lie my suitcase - I had to step over it to move around the room. There was no iron in the room but then no room for that either. Breakfast is also in a different building around the corner. Not at all practical. Not impressed at all for over £100 for the night. Its all style over substance and no thought for how guests actually need to use the hotel.

Quirky little B & B
This is a quirky little B & B right in the heart of the city. Even though you are just off the main street its very quiet, our room was very comfy with everything that you would need. Breakfast was lovely at the Turl Street Cafe. Would definitely recommend.
