The hotel is good and cheaper than being in central Oxford as well as convenient to use the P & R bus into the city. I had stayed pre-Covid and walked into a dead end to get to the P & R due to the road works. A notice by reception would have been helpful. Room very good, though mattress a little hard. I was also surprised by traffic noise from around 6.30am; I appreciate near a major road but I'm sure noise-reducing attempts could be made. It has a calm and relaxing atmosphere in the public areas. I had breakfast one morning only and although the choice was really good I did have to wait a while for an omelette, they seemed to be very busy. Daniel, a trainee, booked me in and was very approachable and friendly. For my last day, I booked breakfast the night before through him. I mentioned in passing it was my Birthday on that day. When I went to breakfast there was a sign up wishing me a happy birthday - such a lovely touch arranged by him. On the couple of times I bumped into him during my stay he acknowledged me and it was nice that he recognised me.

A nice hotel situated near the park and ride for easy access to Oxford. The hotel staff are really friendly and efficient. Our room was clean, quiet with a comfortable bed. Breakfast is good with plenty of choice in the buffet. The hot breakfast items were hot and good quality. We were a party of 6 and spent our evenings in Oxford city, we had last drinks in the bar of the hotel and it was the only time we got our glasses full without asking. Would we use this hotel again? definitely.
