Well!, we got away from LHR Central Stn via the "Oxford Airliner" (bought a return ticket, which will allow us to return from Oxford to downtown London in a week). Arrived around 2pm and proceeded to the Oxford Hotel via a local bus (S3) which saved us significantly from a cab fare. (Nice to be travelling light!). Hotel appears to be very nice (4 …
... none of them are particularly healthy! I now head off to sleep with only three days left at work, meaning I have three days of relative purgatory to go through, albeit a rather pleasant purgatory - no deadlines to meet or clients to present to, but a performance review and a handover which I owe to my colleagues to take seriously! Note - I realise my first post is a bit rambling but wanted to get a few things out there - now I've done that I promise things will start to get ...
Good nights sleep on nice soft bed. Got to chipping Camden at 09.30 very"hazy" and overcast, weather got better as day progressed and the afternoon was glorious. No cows but plenty of horses, came across two leaning on a gate waiting for me to open it, didn't fancy being trampled so it was over the gate for me. Loads of lambs that look like there at least a week old. 18 miles, 2500 ft of ...
... off my lights as usual to let my eyes accustom to the dark. Speeding down a bridge I noticed water reflection where I didn't expect it. I told myself the water couldn't have risen that high. My bike plunged deep into water, my feet still dry. My route was completely flooded. I had no choice but turn around by stepping ankle deep in to ...
... a great way to spend a couple of weeks.
From Stratford we headed for Oxford but we wanted to avoid the main roads and ended up on single track roads through Buckinghamshire. We had one scare when a car driving very fast came around a blind bend and we had to take evasive action. Nise wasn't happy.
I expected Oxford to be another lovely town, but we didn't really enjoy our time in the town today. It's totally different to Cambridge in the way the University is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Oxford Hotel
This 4-star hotel is billed to be one of the top places to stay in Oxford. You will not be disappointed with your first impression as you enter the massive lobby. You are bound to be impressed with the sense of space. It is breath taking by the time you reach your room, at least it was for me, after negotiating miles and miles of corridor and the obligatory flight of stairs.
We went to the Oxford Hotel for a romantic weekend break expecting a little more luxury than your average hotel as we'd paid for a premium room. What we found was a normal room with a bigger bed, two starched dressing gowns and two bottles of water!
The staff were mostly foreign but this wasn't really a problem. All the staff were very helpful.
We had a booking problem and were told we had to pay for breakfast when we knew it had been included in the reservation. This was eventally resolved although we nearly missed the breakfast timeslot.
Overall we feel it that it was a pleasant stay in nice surroundings but not worth the money.
Have just spent a two-night break at The Oxford.
We booked ourselves in for a nice romantic christmas getaway but were faced with spending the night in a FREEZING room. We called the reception desk at 3am to request extra blankets or extra heating. We didn't hear back until 4am when they decided to move us to another room which was TOO HOT!
Was not impressed at all!
I won a 2 night break here. Found the room overheated but worked out the heating, the window lock was broken. I was walking with a stick and found no lifts, apart from the foyer, to my rooom.
Staff were very cold and all foreign? It looked not dissimilar to my private hospital but the nurses were nicer. Stayed Friday night and did not bother to stay for Saturday, say no more. Oxford is expensive to dine out and park but good park and rides.
Compared to other Paramount group hotels we have stayed in, this is one we won't be going back too.
Very good modern hotel
We stayed over the Bank Holiday weekend and had a premium room with a large king size bed, fluffy dressing gowns and complimentary water. The rooms are on the small size, but have a large bed, a very comfortable easy chair, desk area and side table and excellent high speed internet system.
The swimming pool is great and the food is very tasty.
The reception staff is very friendly, all British and very well spoken.
A great hotel with free car parking and very close to London.
I took my girlfriend to this hotel in December last year for a special occasion, and although the hotel has been renovated to a high standard, several things let it down. Firstly, a majority of the staff are foreign and some, but not all, don?t speak very good English. This caused problems when trying to ascertain when the restaurant shut. Also, the bar is very small, so much so that when we retired to it after our evening meal we ended up having to sit in the foyer because there were no seats, which in the summer would be okay, but in winter was very cold!! As a result we ended up going back to our room earlier than planned just to warm up. The room itself was well done out, but was on the small side. I?ve slept in bigger beds in Premier Lodges!!! Overall, a nice hotel but these few elements let it down for me. By the way, the breakfast we had was lovely, unlike others who have reviewed on here!!!
Great hotel but not-so-great breakfast
The hotel itself was lovely and the room was fantastic. The breakfast left a lot to be desired though; the staff, despite writing down our order, managed to get it wrong three mornings in a row. The bacon was so overcooked it was impossible to cut into it, and the fried eggs were so undercooked they were practically raw. A shame, because it let the hotel down in a big way and would definitely put me off staying there again.
This stunning hotel has obviously gone through a recent makeover with a top interior designer and simply ooozes class.Visitors can't help but be impressed by the attention to detail from the very grand lobby entrance and bar with a big screen TV to the rooms themselves which are decorated in chic modern style. Everything looked new and the price included breakfast. Overall the room was excellent and included the usual accessories such as a TV,hairdryer,trouser press and the bed in a standard double is a t least king size. The facilities such as the pool and steam room were also excellent. Staff were friendly and helpful.
One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at.
