We had a nice large room. The hotel had a nice restaurant and a bar for more casual dining and drinking. The grounds were lovely, but it was too cool and rainy to enjoy them. You could walk to town or take a local bus. The breakfast room and the breakfast were very good.
Everything was as we had hoped. The only criticism is in respect of how long we had to wait to be served at the bar but it was extremely busy and the staff were very stretched to look after everybody promptly.
I was very impressed with everything in the hotel. There was nothing I could find that was disappointing! I was travelling alone and I felt very comfortable in the bar area where I ate my dinner. I also enjoyed that I could take a walk around the spacious grounds of the hotel and take in the view of the river. The surroundings are peaceful, private and pleasantly unassuming.
Lovely comfortable hotel, excellent
position and good parking. Appreciated the complimentary pod machine coffee in the attractive, tiny library. But most outstanding were the staff, everyone with whom we had contact was not just ordinarily welcoming, but also thoughtful, perceptive without being at all intrusive.
we stayed four nights which is apparently unusual as guests mainly stay 1-2nights. Central location in beautiful and unusual building, variety of rooms, with v comfortable firm mattress and lovely pillows, good wet room. The car parking is stupidly expensive considering the nightly rates for rooms. However, the parking on site was really worth while as Oxford is anti-car and we knew the car was safe.
we did not eat in as there is no need to spend £13 for continental breakfast etc., and we ate very well locally; Ask, Prezzo, Pizza Express and many more 'fine dining' are within a short walk
There is so much to see in and around Oxford it is difficult to know where to start but it was good to know our room was nearby to rest and then set off exploring again
