Historical Traveler Reviews Travelodge Oxford
This is one of the better Travelodges. It is very clean and very well run. Also, it is a very short walk to the park and ride.
It is set back from the main road and is suprisingly quiet. I would expect that the nearby Holiday Inn is a poorer choice (for noise) because it is bang on the edge of the dual carriageway.
For those looking for a decent night -out,the best bar in Oxford is O neills on george street. Handily the park and ride stops quite near . For overseas visitors, dont be unduly put off the whole of England by the rather unfriendly atmosphere around the Oxford colleges. Its not typical. You might find Cambridge a better visit overall.
Basic, but clean and reliable
This is your typical budget "lodge" accomodation, but it was clean, and inexpensive with adequate car parking.
If you just want a safe, reliable, clean, cheap room for the night , you could do a lot worse than this Travel Lodge.
Stayed here for a night in December for a theatre visit in Oxford. As already stated by other reviews on this site, this is a great value hotel outside Oxford centre, but next to a park and ride which gives cheap and efficient access to the centre. The rooms are basic but clean and this is reflected in the price.
Clean and comfortable
Got this at a bargain rate of 15 pounds per night for a family room.
No frills room, clean, spacious, quiet and comfortable.
Polite helpful staff.
Very convenient for bus to Oxford city centre.
Very highly recommended!
Good Vlaue and friendly staff
Stayed on the 11th December and overall very pleased with the travel lodge. Great accessibility to the A34 and M40.
Good value at £26.00 by comparrison with Oxford rates.
The rooms are fairly basic but adequate and clean. The bath is a little shallow and the shower had a mind of its own but the facilities were fine.
Remote control tv with cheap in house movies (£6 for all you can watch) although they have a contraption on the back of the tv to stop you attaching a dvd. They also had tea and coffee making. We found the staff friendly and efficient. Other much more refined hotels could learn a thing or two regarding the speed of their check in process.
Oxford City Centre is about three miles away and there is a park and ride service about 300 yards from the hotel. This Park and ride car park is pay and display, so it is worth considering leaving your vehicle at the hotel and walking the short distance to the Park and ride. Buses are every 9 minutes and cost £2.00 return.
There is a little chef opposite and if that's your thing the reception staff will provide you with a 25% off voucher.
Travel lodge currently have some £15.00 offers and at that rate it is excellent value
Good Value for Oxford
I stayed at the Travel Lodge for two nights with two friends. We wanted a base to explore Oxford from and to visit the nearby Wychwood Brewery at Witney.
The hotel is basic - but very clean and in very good decorative order. All our rooms were on the top floor (there is no lift so if you have difficulty with stairs make sure you ask for a ground floor room) and although the hotel has been open for some time, they looked like new. The beds were comfortable and there was a TV (BBC1, BBC2, ITV and Channel 4) and tea and coffee provided. Note that the hotel does not provide toiletries in the bathroom other than hand soap, but you can buy them from a machine in reception. There were plenty of towels. There were snack machines in reception and a machine that sold microwave meals and heated them for you.
The reception staff were very good.
Opposite the hotel is a Little Chef where you can buy breakfast and other meals and a Holiday Inn where you can use the bar, although the drink prices there are high.
A taxi into Oxford centre (about 3 miles) is about £7, which was not too bad for 3 of us. The hotel is near the park and ride.
As a base this is very good value for money with various web deals from £15 to £59 per night for a double room depending on when you stay.
The Oxford Travelodge is useful mainly because of its location adjacent to the Pear Tree Roundabout Park and Ride terminal, which you can reach from the hotel via a gap in the fence by the A34; one might wish for a slightly more direct and visible route, but it is no more than a five minute walk from hotel to bus stop. Travelling into Oxford from here by bus (a return ticket costs £2) does make sense, as parking in the city centre, at least during the day, is both scarce and expensive. The hotel itself is like any other Travelodge - reasonably spacious rooms, the basic facilities you need and prices online from £26 for a room, though ours was double that. The building is still in decent condition, with none of the chipped paint and general evidence of wear and tear that tends to be a feature of such places. It was, however, oppressively warm and airless inside even when it was not particularly so outside and this despite the heating being turned off and the window being open. But apart from a broken ventilation fan in the loo, everything worked. At £26 it would be a bargain; at £52 it still represents reasonable value.
Bargain of The Year!
Have just returned from staying two nights in the Oxford Peartree Travelodge, having booked it on the internet for the bargain rate of £10.00 per night. Reception staff at the lodge were efficient and friendly. The room although basic was clean and modern and the bed was comfortable. The Travelodge is situated next door to a Park and Ride site and with a 12 minute bus journey into Oxford city centre it makes an ideal base for anyone visiting the beautiful city of Oxford. Would definitely recommend it for anyone looking for a budget hotel in Oxford.
Good travelodge - recommended.
all travelodges are bland - it's a foregone conclusion unfortunately. however this place provides a very clean, functional and comfortable place to rest your head! the breakfast bag is well worth ordering because the only other possibility in the immediate vicintity is a garage or a little chef (yuk). staff reasonably helpful although the TV in the room didn't work. apart from that, would definitely recommend. oh but beware, our room was on the top floor but there is no lift.
Great Value for money
I stayed with my fiancée at the travelodge for 1 night. We booked it on the internet. It was a special offer and we only paid 10 pounds.. Usually it is 62 pounds. The rooms are all new, very clean, and it has all your basic needs. Television + pay TV. The bathroom is very tidy and clean, including 2 face towels and 2 bath towels.
Good size bed and a couch (which you can convert to an extra bed).
I have always stayed at very good hotels, but this is extraordinary good for the money we paid.
We would definitely come back here, especially for the money we paid.
You can check in at 3pm and you don't have to leave before 12noon.
For 4 pounds you have breakfast delivered by your room's door including fresh orange juice, corn flakes, a croissant, etc...
The staff is very friendly, and lots of parking space.
I recommend this place for anyone.

... This one might be my favorite of all the pubs we saw. It was very small, not much room, but we luckily happened to arrive when there was one open table. The patrons at the bar were nice enough to chat for a little bit, and advised me that the Guinness here was good. Terry and I bought a pint each of the black stuff, then got a half pint of cider for Sweden. As we sat there, I noticed that on the wall were the colors of a ton of rugby teams! And ...

Every night between 10-11PM the students have to come sign in saying they are in for the night, then it's lights out at midnight. We split the Pembroke campus in two for check-in because we have over 300 students and signing them all in would take forever. So Kate ...
