    Being a frequent traveller, I find this hotel with extremely friendly staff, very convenient location, clean and cosy room and also nice breakfast. I will surely recommend this hotel for my friends.

    The hotel is brand new and extremely well appointed. The room we had was excellent and situated in the heart of Oxford. First class.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Room was fantastic, but we did opt for the best they had. Location is brilliant - everything we wanted was right on the doorstep.

    Breakfast was a little chaotic, but the place has only been open a few months so they are still sorting themselves out.

    Location was great, room size and bathroom was perfectly new and clean

    Really clean and centrally locatted

    Very nice design, very courteous staff, great atmosphere.

    The downsides have already been mentioned by other reviewers: the staff is very friendly and courteous, really a pleasure to talk to, but some are not trained and are rather insecure and sometimes impractical in serving breakfast or other meals. They just need a little training by professional staff. Second, there needs to be a proper reception set up in the launch - at present a very young and untrained person sits with a laptop in the launch and needs to struggle out of a huge armchair to pass keys and papers. Why does he/she not even have a proper business chair? Also, the launch is packed with too much furniture - needs to become lighter to be inviting.

    The service was fantastic as well as I felt welcome. Lovely room and spacious

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Bedrooms were very well designed and equipped. Location was excellent.

    Crowded public spaces. Trying to have afternoon yes in the lounge whilst other guests were checking in or waiting for taxis with their luggage was chaotic. Restaurant was very cramped and the food adequate rather than exciting.

  • Single

    The staff was really friendly. I loved the atmosphere and the tasteful rooms. The location was great. I really liked this hotel.

    A bit pricey...

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Good location. Comfortable bed. Spacious bathroom. Very helpful staff.

    Cramped reception/lounge area. Breakfast very slow with poor food. Our room (No.1) was rather noisy as on the ground floor adjacent to reception and stairs and right on the road.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    The location was amazing.

    The staff needed to be trained in customer service, which was very poor.

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    The location is very central and the place itself is lovely. Great rooms and great facilities too

    There is no car park, which is a little inconvenient.
