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.

... the toll booth and missed completely. He then couldn't quite get the door open to get out and pick up all of the coins. Doug and I were in hysterics watching him. He was wearing white shorts, socks with sandals and had his glasses on a leash. We passed him later down the road and his wife was sitting in the back seat. Probably was a good thing that we had seen him or it could have just as easily been us.

... dining room. The massive tables is set for a state dinner, priceless China are set at each seat and a great silver centerpiece depicts the 1st Duke of Marlborough on horseback. The table itself is a work of art with beautiful inlaid wood. Portraits of past Dukes cover the 17th century wallpaper. From the central saloon we pass through state apartments decreasing in importance and increasing in privacy. All are full of ancestral paintings and room size tapestries; ...
... dinner. So I got up and got dressed, and Tom, Will, Andy, Caitlyn, Natalie, and I all went to the Turf. They took me to the Turf so that I could get my nachos, because dinner tonight was Chinese food which I'm really not supposed to eat even though I love it.
Turf time was fun. We swapped silly stories of the program, fun moments and frustrating moments, and then everyone devoured what little was left of my nachos after I'd finished eating. We ...

So breakfast, then St Albans for an English BBQ with the local St Bacchus society wine tasting, quiz and lunch.
As the visiting Australian, it was decided I must be the BBQ expert.
Stereotype - yes
Reality - Yes. Hearing them discuss the use and means of BBQ, I probably was the local expert.
English love BBQ's but ...

After lunch Erica, Adam, and I went to Vodaphone to get our new company phones. That was a relief, because it was starting to set in how utterly impossible this job is if you can't get in touch with everyone. Then back at Pembroke it was just more unpacking and organizing for a few hours. Erica and I went out to purchase some supplies for the office, and I found a claw toy at Poundland that I got for Larry to ...
