Stayed here for 2 nights. Only a 20 minute walk into the centre of Oxford. Room was clean and quiet overlooking the car park. Plenty of room to park and was able to leave car after check out while we went for a last walk around Oxford. Full breakfast was also included in the price. Would stay here again when... More

Near walking proximity to the city centre, hence didn't have to move the car, which is a bonus and clean room. Unfortunately they are the only good points. The hotel is very tired with dated décor and lacklustre décor in the rooms. Hosts were polite and friendly. On the two nights I stayed the bar was closed for both, so... More

The good thing about this hotel is the free parking and location. That is about it. The room was very 70s. The bed was uncomfortable and only came with one pillow. Cleanliness was a bit suspect. Noise from road was loud all night. Breakfast was bland too. No problems with friendliness of staff but the condition and decor of the... More

this place has character, is close to the centre of town, has free parking and the owners are friendly. As per other reviews, it is a little dated, but clean. would happily stay here again. I really do not understand the very negative reviews.

We had a room in an annexe. I was happy with the room and the facilities. So the place is dated, but the hotel is less than a mile from the city centre and parking was included in the very reasonable price. The people on reception were friendly and helpful. I've stayed in many hotels both in the UK, USA... More

Having read some of the reviews I was expecting a horrid place, but it was really rather nice. Yes, the decor is dated and yes, the wifi is a bit patchy but this hotel has a lot going for it. Firstly the free parking was a huge bonus as it is almost impossible to find a hotel with parking in... More

WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER BEEN TO!!! (and i have stayed in hostels) The owner could hardly speak English so he completely messed up our reservation. Then he tried to charge us an extra $95 a night to fix his mistake. The stairs were small and hard to carry my luggage up, and the owner stood and watched me struggle... More

The hotel is old. Reception is not welcome. My room is on second floor, catpet is dirty, bed is not comfortable. Shower room door cannot fully close. Waterflow is weak. Avoid room facing the street, noise from car running may wake you up during the night. However, full English breakfast is passable. Totally not recommend.

After reading many bad reviews about this hotel, we were pleasantly surprised to find it bright and cheerful. It ticked all my criteria for booking the Victoria: convenient for the city centre - a very pleasant 10 minute walk to the Thames bridge, or there is a bus stop close by which takes you all the way to all that...
