Historical Traveler Reviews Mercure Eastgate Oxford
Good choice for Oxford town centre
A comfortable well furnished hotel room, everything was spotless and the peaceful location much appreciated ( too many city hotels being noisy ). Plenty of hot water for a bath in the evening and excellent powerful shower next morning.
Room service breakfast and service at hotel reception were very good and I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel.
Its location is perfect for the town centre as all shops and colleges, museums within walking distance.
The hotel is now owned by the Macdonald Hotel group.
Okay place to stay
Of all the hotels we stayed at in England, this is the one I'm probably most ambivalent about. Decent enough place; not very much personality on the inside. Rooms were lean; beds comfortable. Real good location - just off High Street - and an easy to walk to all of Oxford's sights. Don't eat in the restaurant - good food, but expensive and just about the worst service that I have ever experienced in any restaurant that I've ever been in. There's probably a better place to stay in Oxford, but if you're looking for a good basic place to stay, this will certainly do.
Pleasant stay again
Have stayed at the Eastgate before. Always pleasant, with terrific location on High Street within walking distance of sights. Some rooms better than others, more newly remodeled particularly nice with toile decorations. Last room was very small, although decent. Can generally get a good deal on mcdonald hotels. (60 GBP, twin bed & breakfast) Make sure your wake-up call is CERTAIN or bring an alarm clock. Staff generally friendly, breakfast good, if you get your wake-up call.
My husband and myself had a very nice stay at the East Gate Hotel. Good welcome, good service and would recommend that hotel to anyone who wish to visit Oxford.
Stayed on business, had a very pleasant stay. Staff were courteous and helpful. Room very good but agree with comments about unclean bathroom glasses!
Great staff, great bar, good stay
Nice cozy hotel in walking distance of everythign Oxford has to offer.
Lovely staff who could not do enough to help. The bar attached to the hotel is very good and the food is nothing special but very nice all the same. The rooms are basic but have a nice feel about them.
Altogether a value for money hotel.
Fine quiet hotel
This is a nice hotel with a friendly staff. As another reviewer pointed out, some of the glasses in the bathroom were not terribly clean.
Nevertheless, it was a pleasant stay. The rooms are notably quiet, as the hotel is not on a big road. Note there is quite a walk to some of the rooms.
After staying in hotels like Holiday Inn, I really felt like I was in Europe here. This old building was very homey and pretty. The only problem I had was with the water, which shut off completely during my shower. But besides that, everything was wonderful!
Really enjoyed my stay at Eastgate
It was a pleasant stay. The staff were really good and I really like the atmosphere.
Pleasant desk staf, not overly clean
The room had a quick once over type of clean. A teapot full of cold tea was in our room on check-in and was still uncleaned two days latter. Couldn't use glasses in bathroom - noticeably not clean. The rest of the stay was fine and the staff quite pleasant and couteous.

The Cotswolds district is beautiful, green rolling hills, charming little villages, thatched-roof cottages.

... poor Paul had to ask us to leave because the tour was picking up 2 more people which left us with no where to sit! Paul pointed out the railway station to us & off we went. We decided to get to Highclere by hook or crook. Translated it took us 2 trains & a taxi but we got there. Our taxi driver was so nice. After hearing about our debacle, he got out at the castle & took our picture. We made arrangements for him to ...
... It's unique in it's usage of a family home, monument and mausoleum. The palace stretches over 7 acres and is designed with a central courtyard, known as the Great Court and two flanking wings on either side, creating a U shape. Palaces built during this time were just as much about it's grandeur and magnificence and less about convenience for the inhabitants.
None of us are prepared for the grandness of the palace. We drive through the elaborate, gilded ...
... around, so I left hers with Jen and Marta, but they did open theirs and they liked them.
Back at Pembroke, we spent the morning packing up the office. I did manage to slip out to give Tom, Kate, Natalie, and Lauren their gifts. Tom got a flask with a map of the world sketched on it. Kate got a mug with the NYC skyline on it in bright foil colors. Lauren got a Mickey Mouse ring in colors that reminded me of Frozen. Natalie got an mini LED desk lamp ...
... town as you would expect, but our elderly tour guide makes no bones about her opinion of some of the more modern architecture in the town.
" On the right we can see the more recent addition to this college. A Library I've been told. Won some sort of an award. No accounting for taste I guess."
Lots of little quips like this make for a very entertaining ride.
It's currently summer holidays and there are very few students around. The town isn't ...
