I was booked to stay here by a company I was working for and if I had made the booking myself I would have stayed elsewhere!
- Good location for Brookes University, Magdalen College and the JR Hospital.
- Easy to find and walkable to the City centre
Some of the rooms are in an annexe and to get to it you have to cross the car park. This in itself is not a problem unless it is dark as the lighting is not great. Ihad been booked into a double room but ended up in an appartment which had 2 bedrooms, each with 2 single beds.
The decor was extremely dated though the room was clean. The beds were ancient with saggy mattresses and the lounge area had a huge black leather corner suite. The TV did not work and the wifi signal was very poor and kept dropping. The kitchen was supplied with basic utensils, though the cutlery was filthy, and there was tea and coffee, but no milk, and, bizarrely, a bottle of tomato ketchup in the fridge.
The shower aas nice and powerful though there were signs of mould in the bathroom.
Breakfast was adequate - juice, cereals and coffee that you helped yourself to, though they were not readily replenished when they ran out. The cooked breakfast was fine though service was very slow.
With a bit of love and more attention to detail this hotel could be a great value place, especially as Oxford can be very expensive. Until then, I won't be returning.
