      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.

      Nice stay


      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.

      European Treat


      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.

      ... trying to figure out where we were supposed to walk the dogs. I don't know what was worse, 4 girls and 2 dogs walking along a highway or the fact that none of us could figure out a map. When we eventually got the hang of it, it was a rather enjoyable experience. The dogs were precious and it was a nice break from life at Oxford. Then we ate at an Indian food place called Dosa Park. Wow, it ...

      Today we travelled into oxford, luckily the weather had improved from yesterday. It's not until you get to the centre of the city that you realise that Oxford really is a university town. There are so many students riding around on bikes (without helmets too!!) and the beautiful university buildings throughout the city. It's school holidays over here at the moment ...

      Larry was the last of the group to leave at lunch. After he was gone, we noticed a backpack on the ground. Anne and I opened it, because we knew it must belong to someone who had just ...

      ... to meet Larry at this place called Thirsty Meebles, which is a board game café. It was one of the greatest places I've ever visited. Wall to wall board games that you can rent and play in the restaurant while you eat your meal. Dad, you would have been like a kid in a candy store. They had every version of Scrabble and Monopoly ever made. Pictures are forthcoming.

      The actual trip to Stratford was a total comedy of errors. We ...

      ... behaving in a way that will ruin it. I told them that their choices are sabotaging their chance of staying here, and that either they need to fix it or we will fix sending them home. Then I gave them two hours of study hall each and sent them to class.

      The boys were more interesting. One of them was actually on his way to class at a sprint when the teacher called, so he arrived a few minutes later. The other boy was still in bed sound ...
