4/10 Fair

Smelly one star hotel
Smelly hotel with tiny beds. Men at the the front desk didn’t care and couldn’t care about his job. Had to carry luggage 3 floors without help and No one seem to care. Hotel is far from downtown this more of a one star hotel.

8/10 Very Good

Lovely, comfortable hotel 10 minutes from Oxford city centre by bus with a bus stop right outside. It felt like a safe area with a great selection of restaurants a short walk away. Staff were really friendly. The garden is beautiful for sitting out of a summer evening. The buffet breakfast was delicious, but there wasn't enough of it. Would definitely stay again.

2/10 Poor

The reception was left unmanned and had to wait. Finally received my room and as soon as I walked into the room it smelled of a dirty port a potty. The room was old, stained, and smelled bad. Sheets and pillows looked dirty. I should have paid a little more and stayed at Oxford Central Center area hotels.
