Stayed here for one night with friends to visit the City. Would have given it 5 stars but the renovation work which impacted on the breakfast let it down slightly. We were not made aware of this before arrival so were a bit disappointed in the breakfast selection as no

I recently stayed here for one night on business. The hotel is currently having a refurbishment but this didn't cause me any disruption. I was in Room 228 which had been refurbished and was nice - the only criticism as a female was that there was one floor length mirror

Just wanted a cheap stay!!! And it’s right next to Kassam Stadium!!! The only reason was our local team was playing Oxford Utd. The breakfast was nice though! Good customer service from the staff! But there’s not much too do around the area.

Dear Guest Thank you for posting your review. I am pleased that you liked the breakfast. There are 3 restaurants just 5 minutes walk from the hotel Frankie & Benny’s, Ridge Grill & Oxy Oriental. Nearby we have bowling, Park Sports (our hotel guest may entry leisure club for a £5 entry fee), Oxford Science Park is 500m from the hotel. The other option would be to visit the City Centre. There are a number of ways to get to the City Centre: Taxi fixed price £12 can be ordered by hotel, Park & Ride Redbridge, Buses take either 1 or 5 from Knights Rd, buses run every 6 minutes. Or use the Pick-Me-Up mini bus service Kind regards Chris Mason General Manager

The bus stop is a bit of a walk away from the hotel - about 10-15 minutes away. The hotel gave us a printed map to show how to find the stop. Buses from the stop go to the town centre and on to the railway station and we used this every day we stayed. We didn't use the park and ride.

There is definitely a bus stop on the road by the hotel, but we used the nearby park and ride which was, we thought, inexpensive. Parking cost in Oxford are horrendous (as with most major cities I guess).
