Lovely weekend break
The Hotel was everything we needed for a stress relieving break. We spent the day in Oxford and were intending to go back there to eat in the evening after checking in , but the hotel was so nice, welcoming and ambient we decided to stay and eat at the hotel instead and we had a lovely meal with excellent staff. Food and drinks were reasonably priced for a hotel and the breakfast was spot on. A lovely hotel and well worth a visit...Thanks you

Lovely Hotel: Disappointing Dining
The room I booked in the "Gardens" area was lovely with excellent view down to the river. However, our meal in the dining room I would say was average but the waiter needed far more training; one might say he lacked finesse. The breakfast waitress did not have the happiest of demeanours either. Being British, perhaps we are somewhat "used" to this, although we should NEVER have to get used to this attitude, but imagine if you had flown in from wherever expecting helpful, friendly faces? Come on, get it right, the rest of our stay was very pleasant but PLEASE train the staff to a higher standard like our continental counterparts. The reception staff incidentally were excellent.

Good choice hotel
Good choice for the area. Room was spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable. Tasty food from the restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Only downside is that I was given an adjoining room seperated by a thin, locked door on each side which meant that I could hear next room more so than if I had a normal room.

Lovely hotel
The hotel has a lovely garden and is very relaxing as it is out of city centre. The hotel staff are very nice and friendly, giving us recommendations such as showing us a good trail to walk/jog around the hotel and along River Thames. As the hotel is rather far away (more than 1 hr walk away) from Oxford city centre, and the hotel could not provide us with a free parking facility in their sister hotel - PRINCIPAL OXFORD SPIRES HOTEL, we drove to the nearest Park and Ride place (at Redbridge), and purchased a combined ticket for parking and bus travel.
Fwee, sg2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Lovely hotel and settings with great facilities, let down by poor service at both breakfast and dinner. Luckily we managed to find the one girl, who was organised (a student) who worked her socks off to help us and many others. The team didnt seem organised and tables were not cleared and food continually ran out at breakfast.
Andrew, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
I stayed with my wife after I attended a Meeting, the welcome was very nice, we also used the gym and pool which were also very nice. the price of drinks at the bar was very expensive and we found the choice of food a bit limited, so we went to the local pub The Kings Arms.
