        • Family with children
          9.2

          We were traveling with our infant son and the staff was very accomodating and friendly

          We ordered room service for dinner. The food was excellent but it was quite pricey considering the amount in the plates.

        • Family with children
          7.0

          very close to the colleges and town centre

          very squeeky floorboards in our room

        • Couple
          9.2

          The girl at the reception and the waiting staff were really nice. Room service breakfast was great. Good location.

          Location and car parking

          We were placed in a room for disabled persons. The lighting was appalling and it was only possible to read on one side of the bed.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          Very good value at £110 for a spacious double room with magnificent views at the front of the hotel over looking the university, just minutes from the Botanical Gardens and shops. We were delighted!

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The prime location on the High Street was excellent for us getting to the theatre and restaurants during our stay. The bed was ultra comfortable, so much so that our 'snooze' almost became a full nights sleep! On check-in we were advised that our room was at the front of the hotel, over-looking the High Street which would be noisy late at night.... it wasn't noisy, but it was nice to be warned.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          the location of the hotel, and the view from the room - along with the stay itself.

          The sink did not drain. We advised front desk about this, but they sent no one to mend it, and only explained why (maintenance go home at half 5) the following morning when we raised it again. This is unacceptable in any hotel, let alone a relatively expensive one.

        • Couple
          8.8

          A wonderful problem free stay. 10 paces away from the high street. 20 seconds away from the park, the Bodlian library, great restaurants and much more. A perfect location!The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. All this contributed to a fantastic stay in Oxford. Would certainly use it again for another visit to the city.

        • Couple
          7.4

          Clean, central, very pleasant staff, good breakfast.

          Charge for use of hotel car park, charge for use of hotel wifi. Not mentioned anywhere clearly when booking.

        • Family with children
          7.8

          Location was superb. Staff were very helpful and moved us without any fuss when we had a few problems with the first room.. Parking at hotel is a premium in Oxford. Breakfast was superb.Relaxed atmosphere in the lounge/ bar area.

          First room we were given had a number of problems. Trouser press did not work. Light outside of bathroom did not work and there was a very pungent smell of frying; this appeared to be due to the vents for the kitchen extraction system are located directly outside the windows of the room. The smell would have been difficult to bear if there had not been another room available to move us to.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          I (and my wife when she is with me) stay at the Eastgate whenever I am in Oxford. Its location right on the High, its history, its fantastic beds and lovely tubs, and the overall ambiance is unbeatable. I simply love staying at the Eastgate. My only regret is I have never set-up a frequent stay account, as I have probably been at the Eastgate ten times by now.

          Would love the wi-fi to be free. I already am paying well over 100 pounds a night. Wi-fi is usually free in the U.S., even as far less classy hotels. It seems like a bit of needless extra charges.

        • Single
          9.2

          On arrival I received an upgrade not a usual occurence for a solo lady traveller......a spacious well appointed room resulted. Appreciated hot breakfast being cooked to order and not self service. The staff were most helpful at all times.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          The location couldn't be better and the hotel is in a beautiful old building that has been very sensitively converted. We found the restaurant to be very good and the drinks in the bar were sensibly priced. All the staff we met were friendly, welcoming and helpful.

          We were charged for breakfasts, which had been included in the booking price, but this was efficiently rectified. Not sure whether this was the fault of the hotel or the online booking agent.

        • Single
          7.0

          The first morning I was there, I had no hot water in my shower and due to the time I had, I had to have a shower with freezing cold water. I reported this to reception who apologised and said that they would send an engineer to take a look. The following morning, I did have hot water for my shower but again there were problems. Without me trying to change the temperature, it would alternate from being ok, to freezing cold and scalding hot. Better control of the water temperature would be much appreciated

          Location, Location, Location

          The Room - The curtains were hanging off the rail, and the carpet did not look clean it looked as if there had been a few parties on it. The disabled rail down the side of the bath was coming away from the wall and it looked dirty at those points, it wasn't very inviting and we wondered why we had been given a disabled room on the lower ground floor. All in all not a very appealing room, especially as we had come from the Marriott Hotel in Cambridge. We would recommend it for the location and the rest of the hotel but not the room.
