Poor 2.0
Room size disappointing
The room was very small and the tv was as small as an ipad
Mansoor, us1 night business trip
Good 6.0
Great location, basic room and bed
Great location, 5 minutes from train station. Basic room - bed has no duvet - just old blankets and cover. Got bitten by some bugs when sleeping. Bathroom is OK - has a heating unit, which was effective on cold mornings. Friendly staff, and decent breakfast included in price.

Excellent small Hotel..Good location to transport
Really nice comfortable small Hotel.Fresh cooked to order Breakfast was great. Extra friendly staff.Great location for Train & Bus stations.Free parking in rear yard..Nice gardens front & Back. Only complaint for a non UK resident (Australia) was Hotel only accepts payment on site in £'s and not through payment system meaning the Bank made 3% on the conversion to A$..As long term users with over 35 Hotel stays in last 18 months the reason we prefer is we normally can pay them in A$.. A small gripe but who wants to the Banks any more money.

perfect for our need walking distance to train station and bus stations
Katrina, us2 night family trip
Good 6.0
Hotel location was central to the city which was what we wanted. Parking was a big plus. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The hotel itself was run down and well worn. New carpet throughout would do wonders. Cleanliness of bathroom could be better. Vacuuming the room carpet, particularly around edges of the room not just the main area is needed before check-in. Breakfast was good.

Great location, nice hotel
Excellent location. Walking distance to anything you need, or very close to the bus/train station if that's preferred. We had a room on the third floor, no lift but no issue for us. Breakfast was good and plentiful. No amenities like A/C, an ice machine or a fridge in the room - none of that was expected for the price. Also the room was a bit outdated but clean. Staff was friendly and courteous. Wi-Fi was in and out. We would stay here again.

Great value
This is a great little hotel in a central Oxford location for a bargain price. It may look a little tired but the mattresses are really good, it is very clean, the staff are lovely and the breakfast is amazing.
