The room was unbearable hot and the aircon didn’t work. The breakfast was appallingly low quality - no tomatoes or mushrooms, awful quality sausage and very bad coffee.

Hotter than the sun

Very enjoyable 2 night stay. I upgraded my room and was glad to find the air con working during the recent heatwave, other were not so fortunate from what I heard at the bar. I was in the new block so everything seemed like new still. Room was a good size but very small window for some reason. Breakfast was OK, lots to choose from but the hotel needs more than one toaster as always seemed to be a queue for it. Staff were very friendly and always said hello and got on with their jobs quietly and efficiently. Overall a good spot for a few night.

Good centrsl location

I took my sister to Oxford for her 30th birthday and stayed at the Mercure Oxford Eastgate Hotel and it was a fantastic experience. Great centrally located property with lovely friendly staff. We had to rearrnage the trip three times due to Covid but the team was excellent and very helpful. I'll be back if I'm ever in Oxford again! Thank you

We only had one problem with the hotel which was we booked a privilege room and when we got to our room notice a fan in the room even though there was air con. We went out for the afternoon only to come back to find out why the fan was in the room we contacted the reception about the room and were told they would relocate us to a new room and this was done very quickly. The new room was so much better thank you very much.

Great experience. I've stayed in 4 hotels in the last month and this has been the best by far. Staff are unusually friendly and cheerful. You get the distinct impression that it's a happy workplace. We had a privilege room which was spacious and well equipped. Bathrobes, little fridge with complimentary water and soft drinks and lovely quiet air conditioning in this unbearable heat. Nice big shower with great pressure and a touch button start. As with a lot of UK hotels, the rooms are a bit past their best but this was good where it mattered. Little sitting area, plugs next to the bed, good linens amd towels, spacious. Position of room looked out over car park so no road noise. Directly over outside terrace but guests are a respectful lot so no disturbance really. Choice of food for 2 course dinner on DB&B was a bit basic. Burger, pizza, chicken and chips, ceaser salad, vegetarian spaghetti. The restaurant is more like a pub than a restaurant. Food was well cooked and tasty though. My cooked breakfast order got forgotten and forgotten again when I chased it up. I got the impression this wasn't that unusual. It was frustrating but the staff were apologetic and I've had much worse experiences in the past month. Hotels are really struggling to get their processes and staff back up to speed. Overall great stay. Perfect location in am interesting building with great staff. Lounge and outdoor terrace very nice. Oxford parking charges are ridiculous so use the park and rides.

Lyn J. Couples - 22/07/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Could not fault the staff. Food excellent. Not happy about not being inform by Secrets Escapes or hotel when I phoned regarding parking charge. Extremely annoyed about lack of room service, no information on arrival and NO INFORMATION in room that towels would not be changed. How could you even dry them with no heating or heated towel rail. Only ONE tea bag in room, had to ask for refills.

Enjoyable Stay

The air con in our room didn’t work, the room was far too hot as it was 30 degrees outside and we were on 3rd floor but apart from that lovely stay. Very clean, good location, nice helpful staff.

Location ideal for exploring Oxford. The staff were friendly and helpful. Afternoon tea and breakfast were delicious. Bedroom was a good standard, effective air conditioning and no noise from neighboring rooms. Look forward to a return visit with my children.
