      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.

      ... its a favourite town of mine from way back. It's very picturesque, historical, and a student town (I like 'em) and has amazing architecture (always a draw card as far as I'm concerned, and it's all about me, dahhlink!) Unfortunately poor old Max wasn't feeling too good by the time we got to our hotel which was above Jamie Oliver's restaurant in the middle of the town, which would explain his less than positive demeanour over the past few days! So we dropped off our bags and set off ...

Pete recommended chocolates as a goodbye gift. When Andy, Will, Caitlin, and I got back to Pembroke, Katherine and her mom were there getting ready to leave. Larry and Jacob came in to get their bags, and sure enough Jacob had a little bag in his hand. He walked up to Katherine without looking at her ...

      I went to bed around 1AM. At 5AM my phone rang. At first I thought it was my alarm, so I turned it off, but then I realized that it was too early to be my alarm, so I checked it again and saw I had a missed call. I called the number back, and it was Oonagh, one of our Med Sci teachers. She ...

      After the show we were all starving because of our pitifully rushed dinner, but I quickly remembered that nothing is Stratford is open after 10PM. Tom and Emma did indulge me in wandering around to all my old haunts from the Bard-o-phile days. I gave ...

I was surrounded by all these impressive private drivers standing at attention in their fancy business suits with their poster-size name tags of the person they were looking for, and then there was me in my jeans and Pembroke t-shirt and my little OxTrad sign with the girl's name written in dry erase, sipping my ...
