Fantastic location for seeing the sights in Oxford. An easy 25 minute walk to to the train station through scenic streets; museums, history, restaurants and cafes within a few minutes' walk. Delicious food at the in-house restaurant (evening and breakfast).
We paid extra for a one-notch above the standard bedroom, and it was worth it - four windows overlooking the Examination Hall, we couldn't believe our eyes! The bed was a standard double size which was disappointing as we were paying extra, but this just a minor gripe, and there were spare non-feather pillows available in the wardrobe which was a thoughful touch.
Staff were friendly but tended to stand gossiping in the restaurant rather than paying attention to the guests, and many staff were not native-English speakers and I'm afraid we struggled to understand their strong accents at times.
Overall though a lovely little hotel which I would thoroughly recommend.
