    Good

    Excellent location in the city centre. Close to many restaurants and shopping. Modest breakfast included in room rate.

    Not very modern, needed a good clean, especially the bathroom. The hotel was disappointing as it has such a good location. Free internet was advertised but when queried we were told to pay for it.

    Location

    Twin bed room extremely small. Continental breakfast served in room and the only space for the tray is the bed. Poor room maintenance - curtains detached from rail.

    Exceptional

    Excellent location in the heart of Oxford. Variety of restaurants and transport at the door, sights just a short walk around the town. Very pleasant staff, were able to extend my stay and took care of my luggage after checkout till I caught bus direct to Heathrow. I would definitely go there again if I ever have the opportunity to return to Oxford.

    No dislikes however there was simple decor and breakfast but very adequate.No lift however staff carried my bags up the stairs for me.

    Very good

    The location of the hotel is perfect, in the centre of Oxford so all the popular attractions are within reasonable walking distance, hotel is surrounded by numerous restaurants/pubs which was great. Reasonable price for the location as all other alternatives where either much more expensive or not located in the city centre. After reading some of the reviews I was a bit dubious about booking but decided to risk it anyway. The room was on the 1st floor facing the main street and whilst there was some expected noise (ie. traffic & saturday night clubbers) the noise was not unbearable. Room very was basic but clean & comfortable. Staff where friendly. Would recommend for short city break only.

    The room whilst clean & unoffensive was in serious need of modernisation, for example the bedding and decor where very outdated. The bedside light and table lamp did not work & the small desk was unstable (although I did not report it). Would recommend for a short break but not for a long stay: People thinking of booking should be aware that 1) Hotel is on a busy main street, not an idyllic location so expect some noise 2) This is a very basic no frills hotel that I would stay in again ONLY due to the convenient location; if you are seeking a hotel above basic standard, this is not for you but if seeking alternative accommodation be prepared to pay a lot more or stay in a hotel outside of the city centre.

    Fabulous

    The hotel was very conveniently located and adequate for my purpose in visiting Oxford University. The receptionist was a very nice, polite and helpful person. I will, Deus Vult, be visiting Oxford again next year about the same time.

    Superb

    My room at back and on third floor was very quiet. Staff was especially nice and cooperative. Some choice of foods at breakfast. Very good location for airport bus, and tour bus. Will definately stay again.

    It was centrally located for sightseeing, shopping and nightlife in Oxford, and within a ten-minute walk of Oxford train station.

    The hotel has no frontage, the door at street level is accessed via intercom. There was a total of 54 stairs to our top-floor room, which was small and sparsely furnished. The escape route in the event of a fire, if the only staircase were to be blocked, was up through a loft hatch into the roof. A continental breakfast was brought to the room, and had to be eaten with one person sitting on the bed,and there was no bedside table on one side of the bed. The decoration was tired, with paint peeling off the window frames, and the vertical blinds were very much past their use-by date. This hotel did not justify the price it charged for a room and breakfast.

    The location is good.

    There is no elevator. Room is small. There are steps in the room, so you shall take care in the night. The quality-value ratio is not high. The wifi signal is unstable.

    It is really placed as central as can be in Oxford.

    You know, three star hotel in uk can be pretty much equal til two stars in other countries. The bed is short, ventilation in bathroom insuficcient, noise insulation from other rooms and hallway insufficient, curtains out of order, breakfast is a basic continental breakfast which is brought to your room, where there is hardly any place to put the tray. The internet connection is difficult to get to work. All in all the hotel serves it purpose, it is placed very central, you can sleep, shower and stay warm, but it is in it self not especially comfortable.

    Good

    The location is excellent right in the centre of Oxford and close to all amenities. The room was clean although the bed was a bit lumpy. The lady on the desk kindly directly me to a nearby car-park and showed me exactly where it was.

    It was quite basic and I felt it was over-priced for what it was especially as it was midweek (thursday night), there was no breakfast on offer or brekfast room available.

    Very good

    We arrived very late and they organised that we could come in. Breakfast at the room although there was not much space. In the middle of town.

    The bathroom was cleaned and it was clean but you could see that it was old.

    Fabulous

    Well placed in central Oxford. Room was very clean. Heating and hot water freely available. No fuss, easy to come and go, happy to let us leave our baggage after we had vacated the room.

    Only one thin blanket - I was rather cold in my bed [ night of the first frost!] Our room was first floor, street side, on a Saturday night, so there was a lot of noise from the night club below, but it calmed down early.
