The room we were given was not the one shown on the website, it had a shower not a bathtub. The room and bathroom have peeling paint on parts of wall and ceiling. The bathroom with shower was fine and good size. There was only one marginal chair in the room, so for two people it is not comfortable. There was an electric tea pot for making tea and instant coffee, but no microwave or small refrigerator. No meals are provided. There is no place to lay out your luggage, no hooks, and only hangers in a closet. Hallways are very narrow so that might be an issue for some people. In general it was quiet, but we were there during a slow time of year. The location is excellent, in the heart of Oxford a short walk from the train station.

Breakfast used to be included, at the Turl Kitchen just round the corner. Now that it has closed, I think that the hotel should negotiate with another cafe nearby -- in hemarket or along George st for example.

The deluxe room with ensuite was just wonderful. It was clean, delightful, and warm. The bathroom was beautiful with a clawfoot tub. The room was on it's own at the top of the house/hotel. I slept so well because it was quiet despite its proximity to everything. The location was perfect for restaurants, Oxford University, amenities. I would/will absolutely return to this place. It was lovely and historic and easy.
