    Lovely hotel in a great location. Beautiful views of the river from the terrace, great for relaxing with a drink! Lovely friendly staff. GREAT choices for breakfast!

    No tea making facilities in room although available from bar downstairs. Window in room did not open so the room was very hot with no way of getting any fresh air.

    Staff were really friendly and helpful, and helped where possible to make this a memorable occasion. Perfectly placed for the classic Oxford break

    Rooms were incredibly hot, with little ventilation and no air-conditioning. We were staying here over our wedding weekend, and this did anything but calm our nerves. Staff provided fans for the following night but it was still too warm to settle.

    We had a very nice room on the top floor with a view of the river. Breakfast was excellent. The place is very popular so was busy all weekend. Staff are excellent very polite and helpfull.

    No tea and coffee facilities in the room , you need to phone down to reception to get this and if they are busy, which they usually are, it can take a while. Only real issue with the room was the squeaky floor which must of been a pain for the people below us.

    Fortunately, the weather was nice so I was able to sit in the beautiful beer garden by the river.

    Because of its setting the pub is very popular, which is fantastic for the atmosphere but not so good if you would like to be served quickly!

    Great location and very helpful staff. Choice of food and drink was very good. Really enjoyable to sit out overlooking the River enjoying a pint in the evening and breakfast in the mornings. Rooms comfortable, with all the mod cons required, but still with a bit of old style character. Great value and got a lot more than I was expecting for the price paid.

    The location was great - close to town with parking. The beer garden outside was good having a view down the river. The hotel staff were very helpful. The food in the bar area was good,. Breakfast was good.

    Being an old pub the floorboards creaked up in the rooms a bit.

    Sitting by the river in the pub garden

    An office had been turned into a room. Dirty toilet and bath. Extractor fan on all night just outside very small bedroom window. Thick dust on bathroom floor, widow sill, light fitting. A lamp with no on off switch. And not even an apology.

    On arrive we we're meet by Paul who was fantastic and made us feel very welcome.

    Nearly all the staff were not very polite,it was a shame that there was not any coffee making facilities in the room.

    The location was excellent.

    Would have liked coffee and tea making facilities in the room. It was available in the bar but in the morning you had to go out of your room to get a drink.

    The room was small but quirky with a lovely view of river. Rooms named after Oxford Alumni and a bit of their history. We stayed in the Lewis Carroll room. Only a short walk into the centre of Oxford. Full English was lovely.

    You expect to do pay for the river side location but this was quite expensive. Breakfast staff were rather disorganised, had to remind them about what we had ordered.

    The location, lovely walks by the River and through the Meadows, a great base to see Oxford. The breakfast was good.

    I felt that although the pub was picturesque it was very expensive for what you got.
