    Fabulous

    It was clean and well appointed on the interior. It had private parking. The fellow who ran the front desk was very helpful for getting us pointed in the direction of public transportation once we got there. They did have wi-fi so we could check on things on our own,

    Very hard and not so comfortable bed. Too warm to sleep comfortably.The four poster deluxe was a very small room. The TV was set so high that in order to see it, you had to sit in a small hard wooden chair or sit on the foot of the bed peering up at an odd angle. Easier to leave it off and just read before bed.

    Very disappointed. I would not recommend or stay again. The only positive I found was the parking

    Fabulous

    Not the ultimate in luxury but clean and comfortable and not very far from the city centre and the interesting sites around Oxford. The best feature is the elderly landlord: genuinely warm and welcoming. The Magdalen pub (50 yards away) offers top quality cuisine at excellent prices. Went there Easter bank holiday and the bus service was still quite good. Excellent for a no-fuss, no-frills break.

    Exceptional

    The hotel was clean, staff friendly and helpful. Our room was clean, quite small, but we were only staying one night so we didn't have a lot of luggage, so this was fine. The bed was comfortable and the room looked over the car park and so was quiet. Breakfast was lovely, the radio was playing which was appreciated as the quiet at breakfast can sometimes feel uncomfortable. The food was hot and very tasty, especially the bacon. We were served in good time, and were offered more toast and coffee. Overall a very pleasant experience and great value for money in a good location.

    The decor looked shabby and was in need of an update, there was mould on the windows and the bathroom was outdated.

    Fabulous

    Welcoming and friendly, efficiently run. The hent on the desk took time telling me the best route into town, which bus to get and some decent pubs! You don't get that in the big chains. Comfortable and clean room. Reasonable amount of wardrobe space. Decent tv. Nice breakfast, no delay other than to have it freshly cooked. Satisfied with the value for money.

    Minor really - the toilet seat was rather loose and shower pressure not good - had to wait for a few minutes for it to get to temperature. Okay for a couple of days but less tolerable for a longer stay. However, I would use this hotel again.

    Locality to Oxford City, just a short bus ride away

    A little dark in reception areas and decor could do with updating

    the location was very good - easy access off the by-pass and walking distance to the city centre. There was also parking available at the rear of the property for guests - another bonus.

    Our room was directly above/adjacent to what sounded like a boiler for the central heating system that fired up at 15 minute intervals all night. The bedroom was over-heated and extremely noisy - like having a small motorbike revving in the bedroom. Combined with loud late night conversations, through thin walls, from other guests it was impossible to get any sleep. We needed to be away promptly for a drive back down to Cornwall and the staff seemed surprised that anyone should be up at 8 a.m for breakfast - . The dining room was locked and in darkness at 8 which was a bit disconcerting. Breakfast was generous but with poor quality ingredients - would have preferred less choice and better quality bread/tea/coffee etc.

    Friendly staff. Good breakfast - perfectly cooked poached egg. Also, able to leave car in car park before and after check in and booking out which saved huge amount on city parking.

    Slightly old fashioned decor
