Quirky, charming hotel-- and restaurant with great food. Staff extremely pleasant, bed was a little soft, but night was quiet and we slept well. Would definitely stay again!

Brilliant position right in the middle of Oxford. The building is a bit shabby but the room was clean with nice towels. Breakfast amazing in next door Turl Street Kitchen.

Very nice staff
The location is great. There is no front desk, but this didn't bother me at all. The staff work around the corner in the restaurant, but I found them to be exceptionally helpful, pleasant, and kind, notably Akim, who really went out of his way, and the eastern European cleaning lady, who was so sweet to me. I would suggest somehow improving the wifi, there were moments when my skype calls froze or ended.

Excellent location 2 min. from the Sheldonian
Fantastic location for Oxford Literary Festival. Delicious breakfast. Lovely basket of fruit every day.The room was large but not deluxe.My room was on the ground floor and the lack of insulation meant that I could hear everything from the upstairs bedroom and really only had one night of good sleep. There was scaffolding right outside my windows although I was only disturbed by hammering one afternoon. I found all the staff very friendly.

Breakfast at the restaurant, clean room, great location, hospitality are the features of this place. I'd stay here again if I come back to Oxford.
