Score from 706 reviews Very good
The location was fantastic with parking
Mould all around the bath.
Great location Very helpful, friendly staff Room was very quiet and comfortable.
Very expensive for the quality of hotel. Towels could have been more luxurious, bathroom was quite tired and basic.
Difficult to find a better location that this one.
The floor was extremely dirty (e.g. candy papers under bed etc.) its was very hot in the room and it was not possible to properly open the windows since one would just open 1 cm and the other one would not open at all. The hotel is old and would need some refurbishment. For this price AND location you can definitely find better in Oxford! I will not come here again.
Great Reception Staff
Central location in Oxford, and a car park
The location was perfect, very central. The bed was amazingly comfortable!
Considering the price, the room was not that fantastic and if you looked closely was quite faded and tatty. The food was average at breakfast and totally ruined for me by undercooked sausages - we complained but were totally fobbed off by the supercilious waiter who declared they were 'meant to be like that'. Hmm.
Poached eggs for breakfast - but not the exorbitant price!
This Mecure Oxford property is in the same league as a tacky B&B or a Youth Hostel. Dirty carpets and paint-work, blocked sinks, broken pedal bins, no jug for making tea ... Don't waste your money staying here at any discounted offer. Don't be fooled by the reception décor - it's nothing like the dirty, tatty and dated rooms.
The staff were very friendly and bad area lovely
Rate was a bit high for one night stay on a Saturday night
Fabulous location to explore the city centre and the welcoming staff were very helpful. Great hotel and good value for money.
Excellent staff helpfulness, excellent breakfast
First room we were shown was very small but we were able to switch
Lovely staff, clean and comfortable rooms, excellent location for sight seeing. Hotel runs it's own tours of Oxford
Paying for parking! The books pattern wallpaper in the bar.
Excellent location. Free in room coffee/tea/refreshments. Clean, comfortable and spacious room. Good breakfast.
Inept reception clerk.
Very pleasant hotel in a convenient area for exploring Oxford
Very cold rooms; windows not closing properly & cold air drift in the room.
Hotel is good located near all main busstops and Highstreet. They have beautiful breakfast, only lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber were missing( scandibavian wish). Room was nice and cosy, but the best was extremely helpful staff especially Patricia at reception.
Great Location + excellent service and staff + excellent Breakfast
paying for the parking
Slightly shabby in some areas. Bedroom door stuck and had faulty handle and lock. Bathroom door stuck on opening
Excellent breakfast Well trained staff Efficient Laundry service None of the disadvantages of a large hotel: the Eastgate is of medium size and better for it - so individual attention
Lack of drawer space
Excellent location. Comfortable rooms which were well equipped.
Hotel restaurant was expensive and the menu was limited.
location car parking nice bar and restaurant available staff quiet, relaxing and safe ambiance comfortable bed character of building
décor in room a bit dated plumbing old and noisy breakfast very expensive driving to the road confusing no tea/coffee making facilities in room climate control a bit cold in morning (not adjustable?)
The hotel's central location is excellent, and we had a great view of the exam halls. Our room was comfortable and the breakfast and bar great.
Our bathroom had cracked and uneven tiles and a leaking sink. We mentioned this to the reception staff who said it was awaiting an upgrade.
Breakfast was awesome
Staff were extremely polite and helpful. Front entrance was clean and well maintained. Central location and still a quiet nights sleep. Suite was decorated nicely despite its condition.
The Suite needed some maintenance including re-painting of lots of areas including bath panel which was rotten, bedroom door had black marks all over, bedroom furniture damaged and ceiling marked and discoloured. Shower tiles moldy and toilet poorly maintained.
