... two loose teas as presents for the other couples. We met for lunch (nothing to write home about, so I won't) before heading to the Kilns, the home of C.S. Lewis. One of the other guys had a connection with the C.S. Lewis foundation, so we were hosted by the director, Dr. Debbie Higgens, with a private tour of the house complete with a lovely afternoon tea in the drawing room. A highlight of our trip, learning all kinds of interesting ...
... of us getting side-on in the current before a lock. It took 6 of us on 2 long lines to get the stern back in the right direction. Our skipper, Earl, did a superb job and we had no issues as the crew got used to casting on and off at the various locks. By the time we reached the last locks the lock keepers had gone home for the night but with easy instructions posted on ...
... switch for the Weekender. It was more wrangling of students and directing classes. Some of the teachers still weren't following the program plan, so I spent a lot of time moving classes around the quad. In between I chatted with some of the teachers who were in the right place, including Will, one of the Philosophy teachers. I also chatted with Julie, the other Creative Writing teacher, about JCB's Books that Cook class and her thesis that recipes and ...
... at the Holi Festival my shift was pretty quiet. I was on with Ruth and Will for part of it, and then Emma and Kate came on at 4PM. We all begged Will to stick around, because of the on-going joke that nothing crazy happens when Will is on duty. He just laughed at that, but sure enough after he left we had three boys come in with foot injuries - one cut his ankle ice skating, and the two others cut their toes playing ...
... leading up to the top of the tower we extremely narrow and steep. And walking the two mile height was not an easy task. But we made it! And you can see so many different things.
We then went shopping in some of the shops on High Street, Cornmarket Street and Broad Street. And while the shops advertised sales, the prices still amazed us all. We all found something in one of the small campus shops on Broad Street and I found a lovely Harry Potter ...

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.
