Located in Oxford City Centre, this luxury hotel is steps from Oxford Playhouse and Ashmolean Museum. Exeter College and Covered Market are also within 10 minutes.
Cramped over-heated over-priced rooms in great locPros: excellent location in central Oxford, minutes away from historic colleges, the central market, and the bus station. Cons: Rooms were small, extremely overheated and poorly ventilated. Old carpeting triggered allergies. Breakfast not included in the room price and very expensive ($30 for a continental buffet).
Horrible condition after the big fire in April.Pros: It is in an excellent location for visiting my daughter who is studying at Worcestor college.Cons: We were in a room with heavy scaffolding blocking the entire two windows. Men were talking, yelling & working/pounding in front of the two windows every morning. They totally ignored us who needed sleeping in the room. There were no privacy nor courtesy. We were not informed or asked if it's Ok for the reception to assign such a downgraded room (the windows were blocked by scaffolding entirely)to us at check in either. The service and facilities were at most a one star hotel this time. I stayed in this hotel for about 5 times in the last two years because we were visiting our daughter who was studying at Worcestor college(one block away). They've been always about a three stars hotel standard. But this time was the worst. We will not use this hotel any more. It's totally not worth the price & the poor facility.
Pros: Clean bedsheets and towelsCons: Very small rooms for the price; You can't reach the reception directly; you basically have to go through hoops and being on hold before someone picks up; the staff are not quick in responding to issues or concerns. Wifi was really quite poor--it bounced off every five minutes.
