As above. One big criticism was the lack of decent bread for breakfast. A few slices of poor quality sliced bread is not really good enough

Great Place to stay

An excellent stay at a lovely hotel that has been tastefully refurbished to a very high standard. We were greeted and looked after by a lovely Team who made us feel relaxed and welcome from arrival to departure. Breakfast was of a high standard with a varied choice. The dinner menu was slightly limited in choice but the quality was also very good. The hotel is in a great location and convenient for a gentle stroll along the Thames towpath into the centre of Oxford itself. Hope to be back again soon, highly recommended.

Great stay

Decor fantastic. Room spacious. Good shower. Clean. Brilliant breakfast. Staff welcoming and helpful. Location super peaceful and quiet but within walking distance to the centre. Only downfall is the sofa bed for the children was uncomfortable. Children ended up getting in bed with us in the middle of the night.

An excellent place to stay with caring staff and amazing food.

The 2 rooms were excellent, all the staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfasts catered for all our tastes and the evening meal menus, whilst a smaller range than one might expect, we’re delicious and again catered for all our tastes.

Great location quiet and relaxing

From start to finish, the staff couldn't have been more polite , welcoming and helpful. The hotel was immaculately clean and very thoughtfully furnished, with some fantastic nods to the local history of Oxford. All meals were prepared to the highest standards too.

Great location and very friendly, helpful staff

Great hotel! Decor is great! Good free parking Breakfast was great loads of options and fresh food. Little disappointed as booked a double room with rainfall shower and was given a accessible room which had a half broken shower and shower head was awful! Otherwise it would have been 10/10, lovely place to stay would stay again! Around 35/40 mins walk along canal into the city centre.

Fantastic room and service

Customer review rating 5.0/5

We were having a weekend away, and the staff and room at the hotel were both fantastic. The staff were happy to help with a few questions we had, the breakfast the next morning was good, and the room was fantastic. It was lovely, the next day, to be able to run a nice relaxing bath after our hectic day before, for example! Can't fault the hotel/staff for anything when we visited, it was great.

Very comfortable and relaxing stay

The staff on arrival were very welcoming. The hotel was very clean, modern and comfortable. The room was amply spacious with good facilities. The location of the hotel was great and there was a lovely walk into oxford from the hotel. The food at breakfast was fabulous and the evening meal was good and very reasonably priced.

A welcome smile and genuine greeting on arrival at reception followed by a lovely cup of coffee. The hotel was great and well decorated, the room more than adequate with a large TV. The whole hotel ambience was superb plus buffet breakfast beautifully supplied. What more could one ask?
