Absolutely awful
Shocking, bad staff and room. Not clean, toilet didn’t work, waited 15 mins in reception for attendance. Left a room service breakfast request on my door, didn’t work, it was still there in the morning. Worst stay I’ve had anywhere for years and not cheap!!!

Probably a good event venue once it's finished
We used this as a quick stopover for an evening event in Oxford, so to be fair we didn't spend a lot of time in the hotel. However there were definitely some feedback points from what we did experience.. The communal areas of the hotel look like the pictures, nicely furnished and clean with a lovely fireplace in reception. The main lounge and front of hotel were undergoing massive building works when we arrived (which we had no warning of) so can't vouch for those. For reference, the hotel will not discount to compensate for the building site noise or inconvenience - we did ask. The car parking is tight, and covered with trees so your car will be covered with tree sap when you get back to it. The trees look lovely, so if you don't mind the sap it's quite pleasant. The rooms are a little worn and old, due for refurbishment, but essentially do what they say on the tin. The towels weren't very clean, but the shower was good, everything worked and the bed was actually exceptionally comfy. If you were staying there for a conference or event, it would be perfectly satisfactory, but not a luxury choice for a weekend getaway.

Don't eat here, big disappointment.
Hotel was nice, rooms are nice,clean and comfortable. The staff however appear to have no idea how to run a hotel. The food is of average quality and hugely overpriced, our waitress was grumpy and made multiple mistakes, including over charging by £30. The tv's in the rooms don't have many channels, they have a sky box which doesn't work as not connected yet.

Very Good8.0
Staff were very cooperative. Generally comfortable, reasonable decor and condition. Some niggles: Toaster at breakfast did not toast. Meals expensive for the quality and £4 for a few carrots or a dish of buttered kale is excessive. Overall my friends enjoyed our reunion and found Oxford an interesting city.

A quiet Monday night
Booked a deal for Dinner, Bed and Breakfast. Building work detracts from the ambience. Set meal was tasty but very small portions. We were allocated the same table at breakfast - it still had the wine spill make we left the night before. The staff were friendly and very helpful
