My wife booked this for my weekend birthday treat where we met up with a few friends. Oxford itself was heaving and for some of the prices quoted elsewhere we could have gone to Spain for the weekend. Ok the decor is somewhat dated but there again quaint in a way I suppose. The rooms are spotlessly clean and ample...

The pub / hotel is very old, with the commensurate exposed low wooden beams, uneven floors & walls and such. This can often be charming and interesting. Not the case here. The pub / hotel is just plain old. Many things (including toilet, fire alarm, window shades) just do not work properly. The furnishings are mismatched and tacky. The included...

Excellent location if you are prepared to walk (approx 15 minutes to Carfax Tower in central Oxford). Free parking, friendly staff, nice breakfast, clean but slightly worn decor. Free internet. As it is a pub it could be noisy, but it was fine when I visited.

Good location, the TV didn't work, but the wifi was fine, If any criticism is due then breakfast should have a longer serving time as was only available from 0730 - 0830. Overall not a bad place to stay.

Had a lovely stay, room was nice and comfortable. Couldn't hear any noise from the pub downstairs. Was able to park on site for the weekend included in the price which was great and the friendly staff let us leave it there for the day after we had booked out whilst we wondered round town pretending to be inspector Morse....

In a good location near to city centre. Very clean rooms, refurbished bathroom and comfortable beds. Needs updating, dining room very old fashioned with wobbly tables and main staircase could do with some new carpeting and lick of paint. Very dated. Tiny televisions in room , Sky TV didn't work but free wifi. Only one person serving breakfast so can...

I booked for one night only, and as an elderly single traveller was initially put off by the noise and high testosterone level of the tiny crowded bar, but as all the customers were watching a football match, that was forgivable. My room, number 7, was at the top of the building up a steep and winding staircase, and was...

I know hotels in Oxford are expensive but paying £95 for a room in this place is a false economy. The room I had was sweltering and the regulator on the radiator was broken, when it started raining it poured into the room and the noise from the bar and the street was a constant distraction. The staff were friendly...

This is an old inn which wouldn't be a problem except the lights dont work, the shower has no water pressure, and best of all the ceiling leaks everytime the room upstairs flushes the toilet. And to top it all off ir cost 250 US for two nights. Dont stay here no matter how desperate you may be.

Having travelled here on business. Booked in to this establishment for one night. This is the worst hotel I have stayed in for 30 years!! The rooms were run down and filthy. Blood stained tissue in bedside cabinet had not been removed, toilet had not been cleaned. Mouldy duvet on bed.... I could go on. This establishment is over rated...
