Booked 1 night bed & breakfast so I could spend the weekend with my sister doing some Christmas shopping, mooching around the Christmas market and enjoying the spa facilities of the hotel. The hotel is easy to find from the M40 with lots of free parking. There is free wifi and, rather pleasantly, you don't have to register to use...

Attended a conference, hence stayed at the Four Pillars. Clean, quiet with friendly staff. They could certainly improve the speed of checking and in and out, very specially when they have a large group of delegates being booked in!

Stayed here for an extended weekend break. The hotel was in a good location, about 10-15 minute walk from the city centre. The hotel was very busy with people struggling to park in the free car park. Our room was a good size and comfortable enough. We made use of the spa facilities which were very busy, possibly due to...

This is a large hotel with lots of rooms & conferencing facilities. Our room had everything you could need but some updating/renovation is required. It's about a 15 minute walk to the centre of Oxford - you can choose to walk along the road or along the path next to River Thames, watching the university rowers training. Breakfast is buffet...

We have just come home from a brilliant weekend together. This is a perfectly situated hotel. I would have to say as far as our room was concerned it was perfectly clean, but did need a little attention. We paid for a standard room (45) and got it, but some small changes (curtains and even the pattern on the other...

Functional, featureless and lacking character. This may sound negative but we were not attracted by any feature of this large and somewhat utilitarian hotel other than its proximity to the city centre and the fact that we were lucky enough to gain early access to our room in order to change clothes prior to a wedding in the splendid Town...

I brought my mum here to celebrate her birthday, it's a lovely hotel with great staff, the spa/pool area is smaller than I expected but is still very nice and clean.
