    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.

When at 8:10 he still had not arrived I sent Tom Thorne and Tom E., who had arrived by then as the coach chaperone, back to Kybald. They found the boy sitting on his floor unpacking and repacking his suitcase. They hurried the boy to the Office, but he refused to come check out until he figured out some way to get his new Doctor Who poster to zip inside his ...

I was nervous about a cappella the whole time I was waiting, because I was worried about their rhythm and pitch, but I finally decided that I couldn't do anything about it other than pull them, which I didn't want to do, so I took a deep breath and went for it. ...

    ... out kids, but not much else. The most exciting part of the morning was that Katie went to Ryman's and bought us a new stapler. But it's not a regular stapler - it is an Easy Clasp stapler! You barely have to touch it and it staples the papers perfectly. We all took turns stapling things with it, until we realized we'd reached a new level of boredom if we found a stapler that fascinating.

    ... the boys asked if Cheeky Nando's was a person, to which Tom and Pete replied, sort of. This conversation went on for about 40 minutes, and the boys kept getting more and more frustrated, so Tom finally suggested that they were asking the wrong questions - not "What is Cheeky Nando's" but "When is Cheeky Nando's" or "Why is Cheeky Nando's." At that point the boys thought he was messing with him and they left.

    Smart Computers arrived around 11:30 to set up, and since I felt like we were all just in the way, I took two of the new Deans, Greg and Jillian, to get their program phones. I still have my phone from last year, and I told Lauren I would get hers topped up as well, and then we found five more phones in our storage stuff. Only three of them had chargers though, so we ...
