    Consider the fact that the hotel is only 2*, it was a really nice place Yao stay in. The guy in the reception was amazingly friendly. The hotel is not far from the city centre ( about 15 minutes walking)

    The room was quite small and the water stream of the shower was horrible. I think that one of the worst showers I had.

    Overall, this was a hotel I liked very much. The best thing about it was the breakfast, with the warm hospitality showed by the waiter who greeted me like a long-lost friend each morning, the tasteful classical music playing in the background and the lovely food - all in all a very good start to the day. The location is good with Oxford City Centre about 20min walk away (or a short bus ride) and easy access to the Oxford Ring Road and the A34 by car. There is ample free parking, the value of which should not be underestimated in this city!

    I found my room stiflingly hot at night even with the window open - this was late July, however, so I doubt this is a problem all year round. There was no shower curtain so taking a shower without flooding the bathroom was quite a challenge - to be honest the bathroom needs some work generally to bring it up to 21st Century standards. It was also a bit hit-and-miss as to whether I'd get a proper bath towel each day or whether I'd have to make do with a hand towel.

    Convenient location for the city centre and on-site parking.

    Was only a 10 minute walk into town. Bus stop also close to hotel, in case of rain. They made the refund of the second day's rate reasonably painless!

    Filthy, dingy room 26 - to the extent that we had to check whether it had actually been cleaned. Filthy carpet, insects in bathroom, dirty shelf (where you were meant to put your toothbrush! - when I showed the owner, she admitted it was not right, before "sorting" it out with a bit of cold water and toilet paper!!! ), pillows felt rather old. Can't comment on breakfast, as we didn't stay to find out! Wouldn't usually comment on a bad hotel, but felt ashamed that foreign tourists might feel this is representative of the UK. Our advice is: stay in the 4-star Oxford spires across the road - very clean, two-room suite (instead of the one four-bed room at the Victoria), with swimming pool, and £1 less a night.

    I don't usually review hotels, but feel that this one has got some very unfair comments. For the price and location it is great, especially when you consider it has plenty of car parking. The rooms were warm even though it was sub zero outside and they had plenty of space as well as being clean. They did have slightly dated decor but nothing worn out. The breakfasts were good and served quickly. I would recommend to friends and if we go to Oxford again, I would use it again.

    Relieved to find a place to stay in oxford - everywhere was booked up.

    Rather limited facilities. Staff quite abrupt.

    Staff and that it was clean

    It was a bit outdated in its decor

    It had a car park which a lot of city centre hotels do not have.It was convenient for the side of the city I was visiting

    Cold water tap did not work. Although bar was open it didn't appear to be, had to wait in room until dinner was ready. No information in the room. It's expensive for the type of hotel it is, if I had known I could have stayed across the road for a little bit extra but had better comfort and more facilities. TV didn't work that well, only 2 channels available to watch

    Helpful and friendly staff, lovely breakfast, comfortable and peaceful sleep, easy to get to by bus

    Not too close to local amenities but there was a sweet shop nearby and in the evening the hotel provides snacks which are highly filling and prove to be excellent value for money.

    quite nice but a wee bit far from train station

    poor sound insulation

    Friendly service, good layout of breakfast selection, not too far from the theatre, cinema, town etc. Available parking spaces! :) not too expensive compared to most places in oxford.

    Little bit old fashioned in approach to decor, could do with a bit of re-paint in some areas. Would be nice to get "tea" in a pot, and not from a "buffet-press-the-button" flask maybe? Coffee works from the coffee pot fine tho ;) also, little pointer, could do with pillow protectors under the pillow cases, but did check and the pillows were clean, as all the linen and duvet. :)

    Location

    Never stay there! It shoud be deleted from the hotel recommended list. Very unfriendly staff, wanting to be paid more than booking costs. Rooms and hotel facility are small, outdated with bad beding equipment, bedsheets and covers are probably at least 10 years old, very noisy next to the road.

    Location very good

    Soem of our party had rooms in the annex whic were not very pleasant (broken window, damp sheets).

    The staff was very accomodating, and available for help at all times. The hotel was quiet and well kept. It was a bit farther out than I expected, but close enough to walk into oxford proper in a reasonable time. The room was clean and fairly updated.

    The sink in the bathroom was tiny and difficult to use, and the bathtub had a shower nozzle but no curtain so showering was difficult.
