We were unfortunate enough to not have decided on a hotel in advance of our one night stay in Oxford. The only place that we could book was the Westgate Hotel. We found spending the night there very uncomfortable mainly because of the uncleanliness of the place. The building is very dirty and poorly maintained. In fact, when we were...

We were in room 12 and would request NOT to get this room! It was very old, grubby, stank of cigarettes and right across the road from the railway. Having said that, the sheets were white clean and crisp. No lift and very thin stairs, it was a job to get our luggage up there. Breakfast was great, full English...

The hotel is conveniently located within walking distance of Oxford city centre and with very helpful management. This is ideal if you are spending most of your time out and about. This won't win any interior design awards but may do for full English breakfasts !

Room was dirty and I will attach a picture of it. Headboard was so discoloured that I slept the other way round. Shared toilet (also dirty). Shower on next floor (I didn't even bother!). When arrived was greeted curtly and told my card didn't work. Had to walk to station and withdraw cash (card worked fine). Wasn't shown to room...

Great location, friendly owner, good value. Room not the biggest or the most beautiful but I thought it was ideal for the purpose (room to crash in not spend time in). Didn't have the breakfast - finished at 9.30 which is a bit early for me on a Sunday.

Unfortunately, the room was simply not clean (I mean, not clean at all). It seems as the bed linens haven't been changed for a while and the room had this weird smell. Our room was actually a couple of blocks away from the actual hotel, in a normal apartment building (not in of itself a problem, but had very little...

Was in the annex, the window was cracked, one of the sockets pulled out of wall with wires hanging lose dangerous, dirty shower and dirty floor of bathroom. Would have rated this as poor but rated as average because when complained was given half of the money back, breakfast was good though.

A friend and I booked a twin en suite in this clean and basic hotel that is very close to the station and only 10 minutes walk to Oxford centre (Ashmolean end). Our room was small, with a portable TV and an effective shower/toilet. We sat in the pretty garden to drink tea but didn't have breakfast. My phone often...

This hotel was perfectly suited for my purposes of a weekend visit. The room was clean and contained all the necessary facilities for a pleasant stay. The bed was very comfortable, although a little on the small side. Breakfast was very nice and served with friendliness. I would have no hesitation in going back again.
