Bare in mind that you have to pay for parking if you arrive before check-in or stay later than check-out. less

Many thanks for your review and I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us and found the location ideal and the staff to be friendly and helpful.
As regards to the Car Park Charges, unlike most of the other hotels in Oxford, who charge between £25 - £40 per night on top of their room rate, we do not charge for overnight car parking. This is clearly highlighted on all of the booking websites as well as at the hotel.
Parking is very limited both at the hotel, and within Oxford itself, and the hourly charge prior to check in and after check out times, was introduced following much feedback from many of our guests who arrived to find that the car park was already full from previous day guests leaving their cars all day.
Use of the car park is not mandatory and the hourly unlimited rate is very competitive. This has also been brought in following consultation with other businesses to assist Oxford City Council with their Transport Strategy Target, which aims to improve access into and around the city, and encourage people visiting to use the Park and Ride facilities.
