    Relaxing, comfortable weekend break

    I stayed at the voco Oxford Thames hotel for a two night break with my husband early December 2021. We were impressed with the outside of the hotel and grounds overlooking the river on one side, but even more so when we went inside with a huge Christmas tree adding to the warm and cosy atmosphere. Check-in was easy and the receptionist was friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. It was good to have tea and coffee making facilities and the small fridge was handy. The room was warm enough for us, but we’re able to adjust the temperature if needed. The bathroom was clean and the shower worked really well. We ate in the restaurant one evening where the food and service were excellent. I would thoroughly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

    Excellent hotel. Friendly and welcoming staff. Hotel beautifully clean and looked recently refurbished. Didn’t use spa facilities but beds super comfy and breakfast delicious. Nice hour and a bit walk along the river into Oxford city centre. Would recommend

    Room was OK...but for the price not value for ££

    Booked the room via Hotels.Com (not the cheapest room I've booked by a long shot). Got a call from the VOCO hotel on the night before to tell us our booked room (river facing) was no longer available (didn't really explain why). We were asked to move to another room which did not have a river view and offered a complimentary breakfast. The receptionist then said she could offer us a 'bigger' room which I gratefully accepted. However the room (No 10 named Balliol) was not that large and with low hanging beams, quite attractive and comfortable bed but the bathroom was way too small, ridiculously sized hand basin and hardly any room in it - no place to put toiletries or anything much. The hotel and location by the river are very attractive and the staff are quite helpful (when asked) and pleasant/polite but I just feel this hotel is missing something. The taxi service into Oxford was very late turning up too. When we got back from the restaurant in Oxford on Friday night the bar was shut...at 23:00 on the dot. Maybe the hotel is short staffed, not sure? Overall - room too expensive for what it was and my complimentary breakfast was just a mug of tea, cereal and a croissant so I'm glad I did not pay for that. Doubt we will go back again.

    Disappointing

    Reception staff not very friendly. Room lovely and big, bed massive and very comfortable. Bathroom small but clean. Shower a bit confusing but lots of hot water. Went out for the day and returned to the hotel at 4pm. Room hadn’t been cleaned. Went down to reception (no-one seemed to be answering the phone) and all they said was that the cleaning staff were really busy. No apology. Room not cleaned until after 5pm when we were trying to get ready to go out. Also, took my elderly Mother who was on a different floor to us. Tried calling her room on internal phone following instructions given but just kept getting engaged tone. Went back down to reception and they told us a completely different way to do it. You need to put the right instructions out for people to follow. Also, my Mum’s room didn’t get cleaned at all while she was staying with you - she was most upset. Again, she told reception and there was no apology and in fact the receptionist was quite rude. There also seemed to be a distinct lack of staff generally and the ones that were there seemed very inexperienced. The pool area was good, lady in charge was very friendly and helpful but the pool was a little cold. The food at dinner was good (there was a large group of us celebrating a 60th birthday) and the breakfast was ok. However, I am gluten and lactose intolerant and I did have to keep asking for alternatives.

    Happy to recommend

    Clean, nice sized room and bathroom. All amenities you’d expect. The health & spa facilities were in a good condition too. Didn’t eat here but it looked good and was very busy in both restaurants.
