“comfort and central location in Oxford”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Located in a recently refurbished historic building a short walk from King's, Magdalen, Merton and Christ Church colleges, the Mercure Eastgate Oxford offers a great location for visiting the numerous colleges of Oxford University, as well as several ancient pubs and good restaurants in the area - all within easy walking distance of the hotel.
The recent refurbishment has given the interior of the hotel a stylish, contemporary feel.
I recently stayed there for three days, on a visit to Oxford with my wife, son and daughter-in-law.We considered it a very good choice; for location and for overall comfort and good service.
The rooms we had were not large, but adequate for our needs. The bathroom featured a combination bathtub and shower.
On check-in, the desk staff were friendly and helpful.
We were very impressed by the renovated ground floor sitting room, with plenty of space for comfortable seating for several small groups, as well as the restaurant on the ground floor where we had an outstanding buffet breakfast each morning. The dining room staff were very pleasant and helpful, making the time spent there very enjoyable....and both hot and cold dishes offered for the buffet breakfast were abundant, well prepared and well presented.
Given its excellent location, adequate rooms and excellent buffet breakfasts, we thought that the room prices, inclusive of buffet breakfast, were quite reasonable.

Came here for a nice relaxing long weekend with my husband but unfortunately we were woken up early every morning of our stay thanks to building work opposite and our room being adjoining to the lift and stairs - both of which produced a lot of noise.

The room was nice and big, comfy bed etc but this was all spoilt by the above. I recommended light sleepers not to take Room 201.

The hotel is in a good location to walk to all places of interest and though you are seconds from the high st, you are protected from the noise from there.

central with very easy access to sights. Staff helpful and friendly but some of the rooms could be a bit noisy. Smallish room but adequate enough if you dont intend to stay in all the time. Would go again
