Nice apartment
Nice apartment in a quiet place, close to the city centre (15 min walking). Room with a huge TV, air conditioning, microwave, fridge. Very good full English breakfast.The shower was broken so we had to change rooms. Fortunately we realized this problem soon after check-in, but we lost at least two hours to pack/unpack our stuff and the hotel was not kind enough to give us a late check out free of charge.

Odd place
Weirdest place I’ve stayed ever and I’ve stayed at a lot of places!

This is a lovely hotel situated centrally and within walking distance of all the local buildings and attractions and also close to the shopping centre. Restaurants nearby. The hotel service and amazing breakfast with a convenient bar area

Great little place to stay in Oxford.
The hotel is unusual. It’s in a residential street and is made up of a pub with rooms in various buildings. I wouldn’t class it as 4* myself. That said, the location is very close to the centre of Oxford, the room I was in was large and comfortable, and the staff were very helpful. Breakfast is included and a free drink is offered on arrival. Parking is limited so ring ahead. I luckily managed to park having not rung ahead and the staff let me keep the car there the next day as I had business in Oxford city centre. I’d stay again.

Lovely hotel for a break away
Just returned from a night at the Ethos Hotel. Lovely hotel in a quiet part of town but only a 10 to 15 minute walk to Oxford City Centre. Room was large and comfortable with a kitchenette. Cleanliness was good although the room needed dusting in some areas. Also the tissue holder was empty but certainly nothing to complain about. Bed was so comfortable I didn't want to get up. Did not go for breakfast but when checking out I was asked if I would like to take something with me which was a very nice gesture. Staff were friendly and welcoming and I would not hesitate to book again. I would thoroughly recommend the Ethos Hotel for a short break away.

On our arrival our original room was double booked so we were given another room and a complimentary drink each. The room was really nice but there was a skylight with no blind so it was very bright early in the morning. We were moved to the suite our original booking and this was again a very nice room but the bathroom could be updated. However all said we would definitely stay there again as the staff were very helpful and it was a 5 minute walk into Oxford town centre.

A very nice hotel, convenient for the town (10 - 15 minutes walk). Very helpful staff, nice room: but be sure to pre-book the parking (this is Oxford after all)!
