worst hotel I ever met last 37 yers of world travePosted Sep 23, 2013
Location: The location is not so bad, a bit far from the centre.
Dirt is the first word to remember the place. Not friendly is the second. Greasy breakfast, the third. The only guy almost good was the one who was serving the breakfast. The worst one is the white head man who stays afternoon in the supposed reception (acctually, there is no reception). The last day (the best day) I received a face towel as an bath towel. The smell of chlorine was so strong that I was really concerned in use it. Finishing, is not a Guest House but DISGUST House.

Any port in a storm!Posted Sep 19, 2013
Pros: Low price
This place is way less pretty than the photos. It's just barely liveable. Not dirty, but falling apart and very tight.

Pros: The Location
Location: Location was not good. It was a simple walk 10-15 min into the town and we stopped off in the Oxford Blue pub on the way, which I strongly recommend.
Checking in was like a scene from Faulty Towers, what I guess was the owner was trying to juggle 4 groups of people trying to check in, check out and collect bags. He was rude and so unorganised that it became comical. His filing system reminded me of a car mechanics, with a dirty computer that wasn't touch and heaps of paper with scribble all over them. The hotel it self was very dated and dirty. We waiting in the dinning area will waiting to be checked in and decided that we wouldn't be staying for breakfast. Our room was not much different. Sweat marks on the head and foot board, a crt tv, I had to use a draw to keep the window open and it didn't actually shut properly. Checking out was much simpler, I gave our keys to what I believed was an other member of staff and that was that!

Cheap but not cheerfulPosted Sep 10, 2013
Cons: Everything, finish upgrading it.
Owner or at least person taking the money is really scary and has no emotions. The place is as rough as it could be but does have the basics. The Room was hot and damp smelling with a very noisy cistern in the wall or ceiling somewhere close.

The hotel should not be listed on Expedia. The Tourism office in Oxford does not list this hotel.

the staff friendlinessPosted Aug 25, 2013 on Hotels.com
The staff really need to improve their friendliness.They don't smile and they look to be unhappy to see the guest.

drastically slanted floor in the room.Posted Aug 20, 2013
Cons: The linens on the beds. The tiny bathroom. The slanted floor.
Location: a mile walk to oxford universities.
The blood rushed to my head while I slept. The floor in my room was drastically slanted. The bathroom/toilet was difficult to move in as it was the size of boiler closet with the hot water heater inside as well.
