Location - brilliant! Facilities, bed, linen, security are all amazing - lovely and new and my room was really clean, tidy and comfortable. Really noisy when the window was open and no aircon so can get hot. I was there over a weekend and the others in the house weren’t that clean in the kitchen so could be a problem for anyone who is fanatical about mess and dirty plates.

2/10 Poor

3 bedroom flat advertised as a hotel; probably the most noisy room I have ever stayed in Oxford. No cleaning for 7 days. Never Again Expedia should take notice and should not be advertised as a Hotel.

6/10 Good

Decent room; shared bath
Decent little room close to the University. The room does not have its own bathroom; it is shared with 3 other rooms, so a bit of a problem if you have to go, and there is someone in the bath. The room is up 2 flights of narrow stairs. Comfy bed and room which faces St. Clements, but not too noisy. The carpet was really dirty and stained, but otherwise room was ok. Also, no mention of $35 cleaning fee when I booked. Also, one morning there was no hot water, which sucked.
