I was here for 3 nights and I liked here. It is clean, quiet and staffs are nice. They offered cooked English breakfast, which is nice to try. In addition, it is close to where I need to work (JR hospital) but may not fit with tourists (take 40 minutes walk or 5-10 minutes bus) that want to be so...

We spent a night here for a friend's funeral. The staff couldn't have been more helpful or friendly - they were quick to deal with any queries and to provide information on local amenities. The rooms were spotlessly clean and the breakfast provided a good choice and was very well cooked. The price is reasonable for Oxford and the location...

I stay at The Dial House on a regular basis and as a solo traveller its just what i need. The staff are efficient, cheerful and hard working. Although some of the rooms are a little 'shabby chic' the rooms are cleaned daily and the sheets and towels are always crisp and white, plus plenty of hot water. The first...

We stayed in the dial house for only one night and the only good thing Ican say it is close to the John Radcliffe Hospital. The double Bed was tiny and very old. The room was drab and the en-suite had plaster off the wall. At £95 for one night it was expensive.

Stayed here when we had an appointment at the John Radcliffe Hospital. Only a five minute walk away and very close to other major hospitals too. Nice central location. Very good value with a lovely full English breakfast and pleasant staff.

I stayed in this hotel whilst my son was in hospital long term. Its a 10 minute walk to the John Radcliffe hospital so in a very good location for the hospital. The hotel is situated on a busy road but within walking distance of shops restaurants, pubs etc. My room was modern, clean and had everything i needed. It...

Rooms are spacious, and bathroom was newly re-done and very nice. Room lacks certain luxuries, such as mini fridge, or decent sized TV, and windows look out onto some flats. Bed was exceptionally uncomfortable, which is my main complaint. Construction works is going on on the second floor, meaning there are workers coming in and out, but this hardly bothered...

Spending an over-night stay in Oxford during the Summer recess, I was grateful to fund accommodation at Dial House. Although quite a distance from the town centre, the bus service was good & the closest stop, just across the road. In hindsight I was pleased not to stay in town as Oxford was heaving with many student tour-groups. The guest...

I stayed because it was near hospital and forgot to look at tripadvisor. Big MISTAKE.Disorganised reception, unwelcoming. Room at the front: Three lightbulbs broken, curtain falling off tracks, Window locks broken, couldn't open for fresh air. Window frames allow noise of main road in. Tiny en-suite. Tiny shower. Decor poor. Breakfast was OK but for £100 not up to scratch....
