I have been twice to this hotel and it is just a perfect weekend away . Food is always amazing . Lovely bathroom and the lounge is great. The only thing is the bed , on a twin bedded room , I nearly fell down a few times , perhaps it’s small or too soft , not sure but the others on another bedroom said the same thing

Spacious, Quiet Situation. Ample. (£7/night) Parking. Standard Double Rooms reasonable size but larger TV would be useful

Very good hotel, within walking distance of Oxford. Leisure facilities a very pleasant bonus, including a pool. Parking good £7.50 but covered full stay from lunchtime through to 6pm following day. Disappointed our stay did not include breakfast, take care when booking.

The front of staff were very rude and could not believe how they would not listen to the customer. Be warned they have a charge for their parking which is not made clear any confirmation or even when you check into the hotel. I would definitely not recommend it.

Oxford Spires Hotel

We stayed in a deluxe double room on the second floor which was clean and comfortable but rather warm despite a fan. There is no air conditioning so I imagine these rooms would get hot in the summer. The staff were helpful and efficient and the facilities very pleasant. There were some nice touches like a biodegradable key card and inclusive small mini bar. The pool was a good size and the non smoking outside seating area was lovely and well thought out. The hotel is quite spread out so if you have mobility issues it would be worth letting reception know. Overall a good stay with a delightful and easy walk into Oxford along the river.
