Stayed their one night with other half. We had a room with a nice view of greenery. The room itself is slightly nicer than a good premier travel inn. The hotel is quite large and the room was down a couple of those long corridors you get in hotels!. The spa is small , but gym, sauna steam room hot...

Had work Christmas do here - usual formula of lots of tables of people from different companies for drinks, then dinner followed by a disco. OK is the best I can say. Service at dinner was slow and inconsistent (some people had finished while others on the table were just getting their food); food itself was mediocre in the extreme...

I visited the Oxford Spires Four Pillars Hotel during a business trip and stayed two nights. The booking was made for me. The reception was efficient and pleasant. The room was quite big, with a large bed, a desk and a relaxing area with sofa and seats. The bed was very comfortable, and I slept very well, including the first...

I hope those how've read my other reviews before will know I'm not a whinger. I kept varying between a Poor rating and an Average rating, but eventually settled on Poor because of what our stay cost. This is promoted as a special place, but that wasn't quite how we felt. And I was waiting to be asked at check...

Initial experience very good, concierge very helpful and remembered our names when we went back to the desk to ask a question. The spa is brilliant and well run. We'd stayed half board and even though the food for dinner was nice the service was sadly lacking. We waited nearly an hour between starter and main even though the people...

Good location for easy access to the centre of Oxford, which is about a 15 minute walk. Nice rooms though we had to ask for some of the advertised amenities. Staff were pleasant and willing. The big downside is the loudest heating/air conditioning unit we have ever come across, which continued to whirr and rattle even when switched off. We...

Excellent hotel ideally placed for short walk into Oxford city centre. Super room, excellent staff, excellent menu, good entertainment and overall good value for money for a new year package. Will certainly consider staying again
