This is the third hotel we have now used in Oxford and The Royal is very average, if that. Needs complete overhaul as feels very dated. Be warned there is no lift so if you have mobility problems this certainly isn't the place for you....More

Travelling by train, our main reason for choosing this hotel was the location close to the railway and bus stations and would choose again unless travelling by car. For most cities would be considered expensive but good value for Oxford!

Friendly and helpful staff made us like this hotel from the beginning. Our room was large and well furnished, and best of all - quiet. Little extras, water, biscuits, mints, in the room were very appreciated. Nice breakfast available. Convenient to all the Oxford sights.

The staff are simply brilliant, attentive, obliging and thoughtful. It is a great location so convenient to everything Oxford has to offer. Fruit and bottled water each day are a bonus! I had a quiet room away from the road and it was perfect.
