The room would have been a little crowded if actually used as a double, but for me alone it was just about OK. It had been refurbished, fairly recently I guess, but there were some indications, especially in the bathroom, that it had been done on the cheap. Given the relatively high prices that can be and are charged in Oxford, because of the demand for accommodation there, and the higher profit margins that then are possible, skimping on things suggests that the owners are more intent on maximising profits than customer comfort. The internal walls are not well sound proofed - telephone ring tones, ordinary conversations, and TV/radio sounds from the next room were all too audible. The Wi-Fi connection was initially a little complex but I soon sorted it, and it worked OK, with a download speed of about 5Mps. Adequate buffet breakfast. Free off-road parking. Twenty minutes walk to the town centre. less

Many thanks Ian for taking the time to post your various online reviews and I am pleased that you were happy with some aspects of your stay and able to make use of the free car parking which is rare in Oxford.
Being an older style Edwardian property the walls are already fairly thick, to which we have added soundproofing, however being that we are situated in a very quiet residential area ambient noises can seem louder.
We hope you will visit us again
