Exceptional Stay

bquirky2021 14/10/2021 TripAdvisor review

I had 15 nights at this wonderful comfortable hotel with a perfect Oxford location. My room was exceptional and the staff friendly and always prepared to put in the extra mile. The meals were excellent. The reading lounge was lovely after a day exploring. I cannot fault this hotel or it’s staff.

Dear bquirky2021 Than you for your Exceptional review on TripAdvisor. Glad to hear that you had a great long stay with us. I will share your positive feedback with all team members. We really hope to see you again in the near future. Kind regards Bradlee Pillay

First visited in 1973 it was our intention to recall times past. The exterior was just as I recalled it! Our room was excellent and the bathroom spacious and well lit with plenty of space for storing necessities. Bed comfortable and linen crisp. The initial arrival was disappointing though. Our recollection from all those years ago was of a huge car park through the arch, today however that car park is down to 8 or 9 cars and arriving in the pouring rain to find that there was no car parking available was so disappointing. The staff were very helpful and cheerful so you couldn't stay cross for long!

well located, but no bath

Annoying not to be given a paper invoice because the printer had run out of paper. Also, my card payment was not authorised be me!

A warm and welcoming place to stay..

Beautiful old building but with up to date accommodation and such friendly staff!! Absolutely central and within all of the attractions of Oxford within walking distance. Very well appointed room with lovely comfy beds and very clean and warm. A nostalgic return to where I was at college and the Eastgate was then somewhere that I could only dream of entering!! Will certainly stay again, if the opportunity arises.

Excellent location and stay

Kamal Families - 10/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

I have previously. The location of the hotel is superb. The staff are friendly and efficient but you are under resourced. The restaurant is drab, very tired looking, hugely under resourced and uninspiring. Such a shame given its location. You should ensure you always ask guests if they need parking and tell them about the additional cost. Lack of any sort of service or attention in lounge area.

Good location able to walk into centre easily

On arriving what a wonderful welcome. All the staff were so lovely and very helpful. Room was clean and very comfortable. There was a good variety for breakfast again comfortable and relaxed. The bottle of wine was a great touch. We had a good break and would certainly use Mercure again.

Staff were friendly and helpful (with one exception), with Millie in Keepers being outstanding. Our room (705) was more than adequate, although being right at the top was a challenge after a days sightseeing. We found the service in Keepers to be very slow, averaging 100 minutes at dinner time. This was exacerbated on Tuesday, when there were 2 large parties booked for dinner. We were initially refused service, DESPITE having booked a table for the time suggested by reception at check in precisely because of the party bookings. The manager in Keepers was particularly unhelpful, and it took Nicole(?) From reception some time to resolve the situation. Nevertheless, we still felt uncomfortable, and left after one course, still hungry. This did cast a shadow over our stay, which up until then had been very enjoyable.

amazing service , perfect room , nothing to complain about’

We've stayed at the Eastgate several times and always had comfortable rooms and good service and this was no exception. Only minor quibble was the lack of drinking glasses in the room.

Warm and friendly welcome by the staff at the reception. Quiet location but also centrally located in Oxford. Good condition of the hotel, nice large communal reception with bar, nice reception area and nice food, and polite staff in the restaurant, and nice hotel room.

We arrived as a party of 4 OAPs and our first sight inside was of a very posh looking and very comfortable lounge. Our rooms were well appointed and we also had a good breakfast each morning.

We’ve stayed here a few times and it’s always a lovely experience. The only let down is the restaurant as they seem to close early and the only thing on offer is pizza, as I have an allergy to cheese it’s not the best!
