    Everything! Lovely friendly staff, very chic rooms, excellent facilities (dvd player, fridge, microwave. toaster etc.), location was perfect, loved it all and will definitely be returning! Thanks.

    There was a good bed to sleep in. There was a little kitchenette which was nice. With watercooker and a combined microwave-grill. Placed in a quiet area, but still not far from citycenter.

    The bed had one big duvet to be shared for 2 persons. I would prefer two smaller duvets. The walls were thin, so you could here the noise of the neighbourguests. The rooms are not big but sufficient.

  • Older travelers

    Classy style, easy access to room, quality equipment, very comfortable bed, quiet neighbourhood, 20 minutes walk from city centre

    Some minor sound intrusion from water running in waste pipes in the room above. Improved sound insulation required to pipework?

  • Group of friends
    7.0

    room was excellent

    didn't realise there was no lounge or bar area Also info said breakfast included but it was only continental in the room.

  • Couple

    The room was lovely and spacious, but I would expect this for the price we paid. The key code system was handy so we didn't have to worry about keys. The location was good as it was not too far from the city centre yet was nice and quiet.

    A massive downside to this hotel was the lack of parking. We were informed there were unrestricted parking bays a couple of roads away, there are a handful and they were all taken the entire time. We had to keep moving the car and ended up having to get a cab to the park and ride car park where we had to leave our car (24 hours only) as we couldn't get it parked anywhere near the hotel. I felt the hotel were dishonest about this problem and although we really liked the hotel, I would not book here again because it was a real problem - stressful and time consuming.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Comfortable bed, excellent walk in shower room, modern design.

    Poor Breakfast choice, would be better charging less for the room and supplying nothing. No parking at the hotel. Our room was accessed directly from the street, was quite noisy and we felt vulnerable that evening as there was an arson attack within 30 yards of our room !

  • Single
    8.8

    The friendly staff, the room was a lot bigger than I expected, the breakfast provided was very reasonable.

  • Older travelers
    5.4

    Parking was NOT available. To classify small packs of cereal and yoghurt in your room as breakfast was stretching it. It was very small for a self catering room with no separate seating area.Therefore, for the cost it was misleading.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Friendly welcome, modern, very clean accommodation, no hassle.

    Parking is a bit of a bind. We had a toaster but no bread, OK if you are staying for a while, but for one night it would have been convenient to have had a wider choice for breakfast - dont like muffins!

  • Couple
    7.4

    Clean and friendly hotel within walking distance of Oxford town centre.

    There was no full length mirror which wasn't popular with the girlfriend. Also the curtains were very lightweight so it was difficult to get any sleep once the sun had come up.

  • Couple
    3.8

    Very poor for a 'superior' kingsize room-couldn't walk around bed on one side! No bath-small shower. Breakfast was self-catering =boxed cereals. We showered+decided not to stay as it was such a small boxed room! Totally misleading, expensive and a waste of our money. Could get cheaper and better in London. Fact. Very unhappy about this hotel. Advise against staying there.

  • Single
    4.2

    Room size was good. Bed was comfortable.

    I would not recommend this hotel at all! I paid £150 a night for a room that was maybe worth half of that. Firstly, there isn't a 24h reception, something you wouldn't expect in that category. The reception is closed from 7pm-9am---this was not clear at the time of booking. I had to check in after 7pm so I needed some instructions. I had to call/e-mail several times to get those! They were e-mailed to me on the arrival day, so if you don't have internet access you are screwed. Secondly, it said breakfast included, but that was almost a lie---basically some lousy cereals and some cheap yogurt and juice in the room's fridge. In fact, I booked a double for two persons but stayed alone and after the first night, they even removed half of the lousy breakfast from the fridge even though I paid for that! Thirdly, the room was not really clean, with a lot of nasty stains on the carpet.

    Friendly staff, very handy to town, a little on the small side.
