This was the perfect overnight stop - excellent service and very clean, comfortable room. No noise disturbance at night, lots of space and a very atmospheric bar. I didn't eat there so cannot comment on the food, but would imagine it matches the other high standards.
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
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.
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.
Everything about this hotel was perfect except for the tiny size of the room. There was nowhere comfortable to sit and the space to put your clothing was inadequate and awkward to get at (deep low shelves as opposed to drawers). The reason I would not recommend it is because for the price it was just not worth it. I think they try to make up for the lack of space by doing everything else (service, food, cleanliness, fantastic bathroom) really well. Unfortunately we were still cramped.
I had a lovely stay at Mercure in 2014. The room was clean and comfortable. Although it's not terribly modern, it has everything you need and is more reasonably priced than comparable hotels in the area. Located on Merton Street just off the High Street, which is really convenient.
Fabulous central Oxford location. I had a huge room and loved looking out over the sunny, busy street - which was completely quiet at night. Lovely staff, efficient checking in, clean and comfy, internet worked well, staff printed documents for me... everything was perfect. Spacious bathroom - water pressure was a bit low so the bath took a while to fill but that was not a problem. I would definitely come here again.

Everything was great and easy to locate, we got to see everything we wanted and more. Oxford is beautiful and I would visit again. We visited the colleges, did punting in the River Thames, went to Oxford Castle and a pub crawl.

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.
