Front desk staff were superb. No problem was too big for them. Full marks to them. The only let down was the breakfast which, frankly, was not up to the spec of the rest of the hotel, or any half reasonable hotel for that matter. The plates were cold and the cooked food was lukewarm at best even before it hit the plates (I ate there two days). Also, the industry standard (even for shoddy hotels) is for coffee to be available without charge. I was shocked that if we wanted a latte or cappuccino with breakfast it would cost extra. Disgraceful. And such a pity that the management is willing to sacrifice what could have been an excellent review simply to make a couple of extra pounds.

Nice visit, centrally located. Couple of niggles.

We booked two nights B&B through Groupon. Upon arrival we decided to make use of the hotels Carpark at the rear, £20 a night, the St. Clements Carpark up the road wasn’t that much cheaper and it was 30 plus degrees so nice and convenient in the heat! Check in easy, our room was nice 302, small but everything we needed. A small fridge with complimentary bottled water and Pepsi, renewed daily, nice touch. The air conditioning was a god send, it did stop working on the second night but reception fixed it for us. The bathroom is a bit tired, but clean. The shower wasn’t the greatest. Also we noticed that there was just a bottom sheet covering the mattress and no protector. We mentioned this to reception and it was sorted that day. Breakfast was lovely, and the staff were really helpful. Shame that the cheese, cold meats fresh fruit weren’t covered, there were flies about and it wasn’t appealing! We had drinks in the bar both evenings, when we got back to the hotel about 10pm it was empty, the guys behind the bar were lovely and they did really nice cocktails! On checkout they tried to charge us for one breakfast as apparently I’d only booked the room for one person! This was weird as we’d checked in two of us and nobody had mentioned anything, they did take it off the bill but it was a bit annoying as the lady on reception seemed to be hinting that I’d booked it incorrectly, it seemed a bit unnecessary to mention it?! The hotel is centrally located, perfect for visiting Oxford, I’d book again of I could get the same deal but definitely not on their normal rate.

Dear bertandern Thank you for your review on TripAdvisor It is Great to hear that you have had an overall nice stay. please accept my apologies for the niggles that was experienced. I have asked the relevant departments to review accordingly, I will share your kind comments with the team that served you during your stay. We do hope to see you again in the near future Kind regards Bradlee Pillay
