    Reception was friendly, location handy for meeting location and Oxford City Centre, and cost was reasonable.

    Good

    Free parking. This is an adequate hotel, not much actual pleasure involved in a stay here.

    Poor quality fittings in bedroom and bathroom, very poor shower.

    Superb

    We had the room with the four-poster bed. It was warm, clean and well-decorated. The staff were very friendly and provided an excellent standard of customer service. The breakfast was plentiful, tasty and well-cooked. The hotel was located near a bus stop and was only a few minutes by bus from Oxford city centre.

    My wife didn't like the fact that there was a carpet in the bathroom.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good with a good range of choices. Room was adequate with digital tv and hair dryer. Being able to park at the back was a key reason for my choice and really helpful. I felt happy to leave the car there while going into Oxford. Plenty of power sockets. I would recommend this hotel if what you want is somewhere friendly with safe parking and close/convenient to Oxford. but I also have reservations as shown below. Overall served it's purpose for me which was somewhere close to Oxford with safe parking provisions and a bed.

    The room I was in was at the front of the hotel and was noisy with the window open. Road noisy is ok as background noise but there is some sort of uneven road surface outside which made it impossible to keep window open and get any sleep. The shower room is tiny but adequate but you need to sit on the loo at an angle because of the positioning of the wash basin. Not sure where else you would put it though. Carpeting throughout means that there is a fair amount of dust despite daily cleaning and I am asthmatic which was a problem and some of the aerosoles/cleaning agents were also a little bit of a problem for me. It would be good to have a spare pillow somewhere in the room if needed.

    We arrived just before 12.00 noon and John made us a very welcome cup of coffee. He was very helpful, and we were in a location that was ideal for us. The Balkan Lodge, although old fashioned, was very clean and comfortable and we would definitely stay here again.

    The best way to describe the hotel would be cheap and cheerful. It was clean and the beds were comfortable but the decor was very old fashioned. Breakfast was good.

    Very friendly staff and good breakfast. My room and the rest of the hotel were cosy and well maintained.

    Maybe a tad pricy, then again hotels are expensive in Oxford.

    The member of staff we saw was pleasent, room clean but basic. Good breakfast, efficiently served.

    Quite noisy and next to a street light. Decor definately needs updating in the rooms

    I had asked for a room with a walk-in shower which, despite a rather odd arrangement (the wash basin was in the bedroom) this was provided. I had explained in my booking that I needed the shower because of back problems. As I booked on the same day it is acceptable that no-one told me there was no lift.

    The condition of the hotel was poor; it needs renovating. A slightly unpleasant smell pervaded the building. There was nowhere to eat nearby, although we were directed by the owner/manger(?) to a pub it was closed on the Monday night we stayed. We walked to it in the rain and bought fish and chips on our way back to the hotel, which we ate in our room. The tea & coffee making facilities consisted of 2 portions of milk, 1 or 2 teabags ande the same amount of coffee.

    A modest, unpretentious hotel offering great value and excellent staff.

    the staff was very nice, the breakfast was very good, the room was nice and clean.

    the bathroom was little and the door was opening into the bathroom, it would be easier to get in, if the door would open into the sleepingroom. -> this would improve the room.
