    Very good location for the station, and helpful to be able to check in early to leave my bags in the room. Price is about right for the facilities.

    Uni Mum

    I stayed in a room in the house over the road. Rooms bit basic but very clean. Young lady who booked me in and gave me breakfast was lovely, very help full and friendly, also the elderly gentleman at breakfast was very nice. I have a daughter who is studying in Oxford Uni. at the moment and it's central position is excellent for visiting her. I would definitely be staying here again.

    West gate hotel was a very conveniently placed hotel and was clean and pleasant throughout. It was very functional and suited our needs for somewhere to stay for one night.

    I didn't much like being told my stay was in the annex. About 3 minutes walk down an unfamiliar road to a house with no labels identifying it as part of a hotel.

    The staff was very nice and accommodating - I stayed for two nights but had booked each night under separate reservations since I wasn't sure originally how long I'd be staying. One of the staff members spent some time trying to see if there was a way that I could stay in the same room. Ultimately that wasn't possible, but I really appreciated the effort. The free continental breakfast was also quite a treat. The only thing to beware of before you come, the stairs are quite narrow and some of the rooms are in a different building across the street. So pack light!

    Excellent service , tired hotel.

    Very happy with the service however the room i booked was tiny and the TV had no reception , the happy outcome was that i was moved when i complained to an acceptable room with a working TV. It is well placed for the centre but parking although free is very limited . A little pricey , i've had better VFM further out of town . They deserve a good review but the tired decorations and furniture was disappointing.

    A convenient place to stay while exploring Oxford. Rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Only issue was a fire alarm at 6:30 am and no staff was alerted to come to the annex to check the building out and let us back in our rooms until well after 7:00 am.

    Rude staff and "spartan" room

    The room was okay. There was no soap or shampoo, etc. for the shower (only a pump bottle of hand soap on the sink), and no rack near the sink to hang a hand towel. Also no phone in room to call the front desk (I was traveling from abroad and had no local cell service). My room was in their "annex", which is actually a rowhouse across the main road and up a street a block or so down. So not very close to the main building. The morning receptionist was extremely rude. I showed up at 9:15 for breakfast. Evidently breakfast ends at 9, although you are not told this at check in, and this information is not available on their website or anywhere in the room. I was essentially scolded for being late, and then told that I could have some of whatever cereal and pastries were left on the counter "if I really needed to". She clearly took my presence as a guest to be extremely irritating for her and treated me as though I was stupid for not knowing when breakfast ended. So I just checked out and had breakfast at a lovely cafe in town. Of course if breakfast is over then it's over. But there is no need to be rude and condescending. Guests should also be provided with precise information (especially since expecting breakfast to last until 10 isn't completely ridiculous). And at least put some shampoo in the shower.
