Easter weekend break
A lovely hotel in perfect walking distance from Oxford. Take a walk by the the river and be in town with 10/15 minutes.
The restaurant was a beautiful place for dinner and a reasonable price. The food was delicious. However, breakfast on a busy Easter weekend... it was crowded and frustrating. Not the hotels fault but I don’t think anyone staying there expected it to be that busy. This is when staff friendliness dropped quite considerably, more so by the managers not the waiter or waitress. The English breakfast was also just too greasy, but plenty to choose from. The following day we ordered our breakfast to our room to avoid to queues. It was ok. Warm items were stone cold and the coffee was luke warm. The room we had was a Double deluxe, including breakfast, room 407. It was pleasant the bedroom modern, the bathroom dates and in need of modernising. The shower leaked all onto the floor and there is no vanity mirror. The bed is positioned in such a way that you have about 2 foot at the bottom of the bed to walk past to the other side of the room, banging the tv on the wall as you passed. We had two skylights in a our room with a great big sign saying ‘Do Not Open the Window’ which was a shame because that room needed fresh air. The air con is terrible, dated and would have 2 fan modes which were exactly the same. If you are unable to open a window you must update the air con in the room. Overall the hotel is nice, it needs further modernising to make the price worth it.
