Dirty, don't bother.
A good location and free parking. Rooms at the front are very noisy due to road...however, it was made worse by the window not fitting. Shower door was missing so bathroom floods. Black mould in bathroom and mouldy shower plug. No hot water, or water from the shower in the morning. Hotel blamed too many people wanting a shower. 😠. No curtains in the room, just badly fitted blinds which doesn't stop the sun or people on the bus looking in. No one in reception at check out to raise issues with.

The Galaxie
The entrance to the car park is a little snug, but obviously manageable. The hotel is a great place to stay, its quirkiness is definitely a feather in its bow. I cant think of any reason why i would come to Oxford and not stay here again. Most of the staff we came in to contact with were over and above our expectations especially the guy doing the breakfast and generally running around, very attentive. If i was being hyper critical the guy when we were checking in and out lacked the same enthusiasm and attentiveness, but that is a small critism for our stay at The Galaxie

I cannot say enough good things about the Galaxy stay in Oxford! The remodeled hotel still has a very cozy (boutique) feel to it, the breakfast is wonderful and the overall service rating is 100%.
