Schlecht gewartetes altes Hotel

Posted 20-Sep-2016
Dies ist ein altes kleines Hotel mit Bar im Erdgeschoss. Im einem Zimmer tropft der Wasserhahn und aus dem Duschkopf kommt nur ein Rinnsal. Ein Fenster lies sich nicht vollständig schließen. In einem anderen Zimmer musste die Dusche außerhalb des Bades mittels eines Schalters angestellt werden. Daher lies sich das Wasser in der Dusche stehend nicht ausstellen.

Oxford Tubeのバスを降りてすぐのところにあり、さらに大学も近いです。 ホテルとパブが一緒になっていて、チェックインも楽でした。 さらにパブの常連さんやお店の人たちもフレンドリーな感じだったので、心細さがなくなります!笑 またOxfordに来る時には利用したいです。

Old Black Horse - June 2016

Posted 21-Jun-2016 on Hotels
I enjoyed the stay very much. The Thursday night quiz night in the pub was great fun. Noise from the pub was minimal in the rooms. The building is an old coaching in so tall people need to watch their head on low beams and doorways. Friendly welcoming service and wonderful position for public transport and walking distance to Oxford centre and shops and sightseeing. Will stay there again.

Great location

Great location with a secure car park. Easy to get to. Easy walk into Oxford, but lots of pubs and eating places on the doorstep. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was cosy, clean and comfortable.

Spelunking adventure above a tavern - get Room #8!

Posted 31-May-2016 on Hotels
The number one pro of the place is its proximity to Oxford campus and buses to Heathrow/London, and second, if you want a fun Indiana Jones caving adventure in a hobbit's attic! On the neg side, one has to get over the fact the rooms are basically above an old tavern that is a typical watering hole, which we were forced to experience checking at midnight surrounded by heavily drunk singing patrons and asked to stand among them for 10 minutes with all our airport luggage until the bartenders finished serving drinks to them. Then there is the spelunking with our luggage through attic crawl spaces perfectly sized for hobbits, bending over like Quasimodo and other contortions to reach our room deep in the belly of the tavern's attic cavern (ask for Room #8 if you want a wonderful caving adventure!). that said, the room was cozy. Sufficient if you're a single person needing a place for the night, but AWESOME if you want to go spelunking above an English tavern with the giggles! We had a blast.

Friendly staff, but basic accommodation

Posted 29-May-2016
Pros: Friendly staff
Cons: Decor could be updated.
Location: Pubs, curry houses etc.
Centrally placed, this is an old pub in the town, with basic accommodation as you would expect. The staff were friendly and it was an experience, a change from the standard business hotel. Give it a shot if you want something that is authentic but not new

Basic and cheap (and notin a good way)

Posted 25-May-2016 on Hotels
IF you went to a traditional pubhlic school or served in the Royal Marines this hotel is 'adequate'. If not then it makes travelodges seem like the Ritz.
