This was a city break for us. Unfortunately, the noise from building work outside our room window did make sure we got up for breakfast! I was unaware until checkout that there was a 10% service charge in the restaurant. I left cash for our waiter at the time. Although I signed the bill to charge to my room I didn't see this. It's my first experience in an Accor hotel for a service charge to be applied to residents.
Well located, very clean, tiny room, overpriced.

Very good central location, with charming staff and high standards of cleanliness. But, for the extremely small room I was allocated and absence of breakfast (unless I paid a surcharge!), this place is overpriced. I also resented the endless stream of 'upselling' emails I was bombarded with - both before and during my stay. But for my laziness, I could have walked to a B&B 10 minutes out of the city centre - and paid half as much for a larger room and breakfast included.
Convenient location,Comfortable room

We chose this hotel for a 3 night break for our first visit to Oxford as we have often used Mercure and other Accor group hotels in UK and France as we have always been happy with standards of comfort and service. On the plus side, The Mercure Eastgate Hotel is ideally located within walking distance of all the attractions in Oxford so did not have to use a car.Reception staff were welcoming, the room was quiet and comfortable with a spacious bathroom including an effective rainstorm shower.Excellent choice of cooked breakfasts with many special items, restaurant staff were efficient and friendly,keeping everything replenished. We have stayed in many Mercure hotels in the UK and France and have never had any complaints but on this occasion it does appear that the management have "taken their eyes off the housekeeping ball". On arrival we noticed that the room was stiflingly hot and the thermostat did not allow the temperature to be changed so we reported this to reception who unhelpfully advised us that the engineers had said it was an old system that could not be thermostatically controlled and that there had been many complaints from other guests!!We therefore resorted to keeping the window open although it was 3C outside.Whilst opening the windows, we noticed paint flaking off the window frames which had clearly been happening for some time. We also noticed cobwebs on the bedside lampshade and a thick layer of dust on the shelf under a table in the bedroom-not very reassuring at a time when cleaning should be very thorough.
Comfortable accommodation in a central location

This is an excellent hotel just off the High Street and right next to the Ruskin school of art. We stayed in a room in the attic, which was small and cosy and beautifully appointed. The hotel is in an old building, which means that we could only get the lift to the second floor and carry our bags the rest of the way. This didn't bother us, but could be an issue for some. There is no parking on site, so we used the park and ride, as we were staying for 3 nights. It would have cost us £60 if we had parked in the centre, but only £12 at the park and ride.
