Great welcome and friendly helpful staff
Car parking is an issue
The quirky decoration of the room and the comfortable bed
The breakfast was very ordinary and there were few healthy choices!
Location, helpful staff, kosy pup, good food, lovely rooms, great stay!
Staff were helpful
TV didn't work Light in the shower hanging out of the ceiling. Noise throughout the night from other rooms, bathroom fans toilet cisterns refilling and footsteps in the rooms above and in the hallway.
Comfortable beds, friendly staff
Very dark, inadequate lighting in bedrooms
Very friendly staff, lovely good at breakfast.
Floor boards were so noisy, very thin walls and the food at dinner was not great. Lamb very fatty and beef very dry.
Staff and breakfast
the waitress who served us on our last night was amazing I was sick and she was so attentive
no tea making facilities in the room
Staff friendly and helpful. Fabulous location.
Bacon over cooked. No drawers for clothes and no hot drink facilities but would still return as everything else was fine.
Staff are outstanding, food is excellent, less than 10 minutes walk to centre of Oxford, parking onsite is very convenient, but you do need to book.
We really liked the staff and the bedroom was great comfy bed, great views over the river. The food was really good 'pub grub' Breakfasts really hearty ,fab poached eggs!!!
Staffs are really friendly
Pub was nice and staff friendly
No compliments tray in room no fresh towels or room cleaned after first night stay was cold and drafty
Hotel was lovely , staff were really friendly and helpful , couldn't do enough for you . Loved the style of the room . Bar staff were really friendly . Breakfast was really nice too , can't wait to visit again in the summer !!
Being really picky now !! No tea or coffee making facities in the room but was offered room service at any time of day or night so not a huge problem , also we were paying cash for the room but they still wanted to pre-authorise a card which is fine but we wernt told the funds would be held for 5 working days , again not a big problem but would of been nice to know .
Room 11 - decent size. Nice decor. Dual aspect windows overlooking the river. Wardrobe with wooden hangers. Full length mirror. Fluffy bath towels. Very helpful staff, particularly Paul who went out of his way to let us know that our car headlights had been left on & then helped to switch them off as we were out. Would definitely recommend this place & hope to return.
Lovely room, great location, fab breakfast & lovely staff.
Our shower made a squealing sound when used . We woke earlier than breakfast , so tea & coffee facilities in the room would have been nice.
Really squeaky floor boards!
Presumed complimentary bottle of Fullers real ale in the room - but more so the helpful staff, good food, comfortable room
No bottle opener, and for non-beer drinkers, no tea/coffee in the room.
Loved the view of the river staff very helpfull and friendly
No tea and coffee facilities in room bed too high poor lighting overpriced no real idea of a vegetarian breakfast
Staff and location excellent. Immaculately clean.
No tea or coffee, only three hangers in wardrobe. Heat turned off at night and room was cold.
In hindsight the hotel was overpriced for the facilities
Decor of room and warmth.
Being told that parking was £10 when checking out.
Helpful friendly staff. Clean comfortable rooms. Good situation and views.
Only one bedside lamp in a double room. No tea making facilities in room.
Very helpful staff, amazing accommodation, delicious food, bit more expensive though, but overall the best place we could imagine and we will definitely come back :)
