Stayed for a couple of nights on business.
It's about a tenner in a taxi to get to town, but Oxford is well worth a visit.
It's a nice hotel, comfy beds and good facilities, although it probably suffers for its size. (it seems to go on for ever!) Breakfasts are buffet tyle but very good.
Bar food took 45 minutes from ordering and was of so so quality, the curry had VERY watery rice and not cheap. Other orders were again OK but not brilliant. The bar as roating hot. They did have a barrel of cask ale on the bar which was good value which redeamed things somewhat. Although if you ordered, say, a vodka and coke they'd go straight for the Grey Goose and you pay through the nose. Be waned!
If you want a drink and food, I'd recommend taking a left out the hotel and walking down to the pub in the village (Wolvercote-scene of one of the Inspector Morse stories) Good food and drink with nice lounge. You could walk further and experience the grumpy bar man in the White Lion, but that's another story.
There was a problem on checkout when inclusives were charged as extras, but they resolved that pretty quickly.
So to summise, I'd stay there again if I had to, but would have prefered somewhere closer to Oxford if you want to see the sights. I'd eat and drink down the road, but would look forward to resting my head there.
