Our stay in Oxford
The location was excellent being a short walk into Oxford, with a choice of amazing restaurants around the corner on Cowley Road. The traffic noise at night was very loud but we expected that. The room had been recently refurbished and was clean and comfortable. The dining room was gloomy and the breakfast was passable.

Quirky but great place to stay in Oxford.
Great location with parking, breakfasts were really good. Room was quirky but comfortable and as its an 18th century coaching inn to be expected. One niggle water pressure was not great for shower.

Don’t bother, needs updating urgently
Old tired pub letting out rooms. Enter through public bar no reception. Men, dogs, Tv, loud music etc nothing inviting. Barmaid couldn’t find key. Room clean, no top sheets on bed, unironed old duvet cover, double bed not even a duvet! A bedspread type thing and no sheet. Breakfast awful staff refused initially as 8.30am finish we were there just before but no staff she was washing up I had to go to kitchen. Scrambled egg toast not even buttered. Not offered toast jam etc tiny tea for 2. Awful we just left.

Check the reviews !!
Inn was very dated and not at a standard that I have been used to by using Room was very small, bed was a type that had just springs for support and every time you moved it made a noise so not good for sleeping. Bathroom was small and covered in plastic glitter panels. There was sky sports on the TV in every part of the inn, even in the breakfast room there was a TV in the window pointing outside !!. Breakfast was only served between 7:30 and 8:30 again pretty poor although the breakfast itself was OK. Location was about the only good thing as it was a 10 minute walk from the town. I was disappointed in the price of £130+ as the previous week I had stayed in Aberdeen in a Mc Donald's hotel for less than £100 and it was outstanding.
