SUNDAY 3rd MAY 2012 OXFORD Set off this morning heading for the Cotswolds, staying off the dreaded motorways and heading south, by passing Wolverhampton and Birmingham and then turning west and on to Stratford upon Avon for a coffee stop! The home of William Shakespeare was a pleasant little place - popular tourist bus stop - and it was packed with …
A nice early start to the day, 6:45am report to the bus (coach according to our driver - they can be so precious about the whole coach/bus thing!) It was time to meet the group before a driving tour of London. Did a flying visit past all the main attractions and then it was off to Windosr home of the Royal's summer residence.
The history …
hallo, hier nun die Fotos von der Weihnachtsfeier im Holiday Inn....
... we arrived at our place in Oxford after four hours of being highway warriors dicing it with lorries and people who drive 30 above max as routine. No sight of Plod. Rachel and Charlie have the improbable, a farm in central Oxford ... let's define central. Down through the labyrinth of farm buildings to the Thames, yes this place has frontage and moorings, over a community built iron bridge (two centuries ago at least) that has an arch, then across a community meadow (which floods), then ...
I can already tell this trip is going to be special. Dan and I arrived on Thursday August 8th into London and took the tube to our hotel in Notting Hill. A very cute boutique hotel called Portobello Inn right off (you guessed it!) Portobello Road. probably my new favorite part of London, but ill get there later... We were greeted by a good friend, Courtney, and her fiancé Damien and went out to dinner at a restaurant called Florintini. The restaurant has ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Oxford
Useless conference facilities!
Stayed here on a business course which was a waste of time and money as the WIFI didn't work and there was no dial-up connected!
A pity as the room was clean,modern and comfortable and the Continental breakfast buffet more than adequate.
A little chilly but it was a very cold weekend and I always take my fan heater, just in case!
Staff were polite and it was a quiet location but a little out of the way.
Unlike the previous reviewer,I ate at Frankie and Benny's and thought the food was DISGUSTING. Sadly there's not much choice in the vicinity.
I would stay here again but not use their Conference facility!!!
An Administrative Nightmare
This hotel lost my reservations, then charged me when I had already pre-paid. They then "lost" all my account information when I tried to get them to refund the amount they double charged me. They're incompetent and I'm still trying to work out the financial mess they made. The rooms are nice enough, but it's really not worth the hassle.
We stayed in this hotel with 2 other couples and the following is based on the 'group' experience.
Very good value for money
This is a very comfortable, modern hotel about 4 miles outside Oxford. Rooms are clean and, whilst not luxurious, have all the basics you need. The bed was very comfortable, and the shower good. Toiletries are very basic. The buffet breakfast is more than adequate, with good supplies of cereals, fruit, yoghourt, pastries, toast, juices and hot drinks - and newspapers. Staff were always helpful and polite.
The only slight drawback is the distance from the hotel to Oxford city centre, though you can always park in the "Park and Ride" about a mile down the road and take the bus. Other than that, there does not seem to be any public transport, and a taxi costs about £10 each way.
Overall though very good value for money.
This is standard fare for UK Express by Holiday Inn (more compact than Holiday Inn Express in the US). Good, clean hotel, plenty of parking, modern rooms. Only issues would be:
We just stayed at the hotel a week ago. It is located on the edge of the urban growth boundary and is situated in a business/office park type of setting. In other words, you will need a car to get into Oxford itself (about 15 minutes to city center). The soccer (football) stadium is next door, and on the other side of that is an entertainment complex with a bowling alley/billiard/sports bar, a health club, a mutliplex movie theater, and a good sit-down restaurant called Frankie and Benny's. The restaurant served us well as we ate dinner there 3 times after spending the day exploring Oxford, Windsor and the countryside. It is on par with TGI Friday's if that helps. There is a old pub next to the bowling alley, but we did not try it. Other options require driving a ways. Look for the brown soccer/football sign if you are approching from the ring road to take you there. Good place to practice roundabouts!
Great Value, a nice experience
We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Oxford for one night and were delighted with the hotel. The rooms were slightly on the small side but were clean, modern and functional. The staff were helpful and friendly and the public areas were smart and modern. I have stayed in several hotels recently ,some of which were more than double the price of this one, and they were poor by comparison. If we visit Oxford again we will certainly use the hotel.
Stayed one night here as I wanted somewhere clean, comfortable and predictable for the middle of my journey. It fits the bill in all respects. The breakfast was excellent, room comfortable and clean, with nice big towels and great shower. Road outside was rather noisy because of motorcyclists using it as a race track - get a room away from the road. Ate at a nearby pub for my evening meal.
This hotel is not terribly convenient unless you have a car, but the staff are friendly, and it was everything I asked for.
Nice, Modern Hotel
This modern hotel is located about 15-20 minutes south of the Oxford city center, right next to the Oxford United soccer field (Kassam Stadium) and one block away from Ozone - a bowling alley and movie theater complex. There is a large car park and a bus stop one block away, so you don't have to worry about where to park in the city. The room was small by American standards, but very clean and comfortable.
There was a double bed and a loveseat that converted to another bed.
The price was 69 GBP to 79 GBP per room and included a breakfast buffet of croissants, cereals, yogurt, grapefruit, coffee, tea, juices.
Overall, a very good value. I'd stay here again.
Wow, i'm the 1st to make a review! :) Well, I took a chance on this place. No reviews to read from, but I learned it was a newly constructed hotel (2002 I think) so I figured it couldn't be all that bad. The rates were among the lowest in Oxford and being an international chain, I figured it couldn't be all that bad. If going in the winter, be forewarned that the rooms are cool even with the heat cranked up (we got around this by turning on the hairdryer and keeping it on whenever we were in the room :) The rooms are good enough. The free breakfast was very good: variety of cereals, croissants (with/without chocolate), bread, toast/jelly, yogurt, juices, etc. in a nice eating area--or you can take food up to your room.
