Stayed overnight for family birthday celebration. Ideal location for resteraunts in Oxford Street. Very prompt and pleasant staff. We had room 10 which was high up and at the back so it was very quiet and well presented. The highlight was the shower which was excellent. Breakfast was good and part of the price which made it a very reasonable...

Great location, on the edge of town near numerous bars and restaurants, rooms are good value, breakfast is great and cooked to order so allow a bit more tine for this. Bar meals are reasonably priced and very nice, parking over the road is convenient. Overall a nice place to stay.

When thinking about what I love about this hotel, I have to say it is the way they make you feel! It's like a friendly pub, casual and homey. A great place to stay for a while, as I did recently. The staff is so friendly and even when things are not going exactly to plan, take it in stride...

Great location on Oxford street. Very warm welcome from the receptionist, very quick check in, shown to my room. Room was large but the bathroom was tired. Rain water shower could do with a new shower head, small amount of black mould on the ceiling, hardly surprising seeing as there is no ventilation! Very comfy bed, fluffy pillows crisp white...

Very pleasant staff. Breakfast was very good. We found the room very small. They said they were upgrading us so I don't know what the room would have been like. They did say there was an extractor fan just outside the window though. We had to go to the top of the house. I found it clostrophobic lots of stairs....
