          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.

The walk to our "hotel" was fairly straight forward except that when we got to the corner where we expected to find Keble College, the map indicated it was ahead on the left. So we continued down the block, around the corner, down another block and continued around until we were almost back to the same corner. But just before the corner (that we initially walked by) was ...

          ... in College during the hours of the wedding, but that didn't go over so well, and today we reached a point of desperation. Jessica put in a call to the Conferences office, and was told she'd get a call back at 2PM. And so, we waited.

          I waited at the Grand Cafe with my tea. I started to ask Jess and Emma, but Jessica was super frazzled from the venue thing and I thought tea would be the last thing she was thinking about, and Tom was still upset ...

I got a call from Jon just as I was about to get in the shower asking if he and Jim could move the drinks from my room to the Forte Room, but I said no because I felt disgusting and had to get a shower. I was able to finish getting ready by 3:30, so they still had plenty of time to move the drinks.

          At 4PM we all headed over to Corpus for drinks with the faculty, but we only stayed for about 30 ...

          I spent the morning doing laundry and trying to not think about the time capsule. At 11AM I had to go over to Corpus to cover for Greg and Jon, who had to help a teacher set up some stuff in her classroom. On my way back into College I passed through Old Quad; they were already laying sod, and to my amazement they had already finished the plot that covered our time capsule! What?! Did we actually ...

          ... I was so committed to going Starbucks free this year, but today I just couldn't do it. The lack of sleep is too much, and I caved. But I'm drinking as little of the latte as I can, so I feel like that makes up for it a bit, and it is helping me feel more energized.

          We have one more hour of shift left. Fingers crossed that it stays quiet until the end, although OxTrad experience suggests that all hell will probably break loose at ...
