We booked a room here for a short break in the Oxford area - it was a lovely place to have as our 'base'. The room was a good size and comfortable. What really made it though was the impressive main house and the beautiful grounds. We'll be coming here again - good value for money!

The other people were nice and the rooms well presented. You could come and go any time, and everything necessary was provided (towels, padlocks etc). Despite other reviews, the noise level from clubs outside did not bother me (to be fair there was more noise coming from the other dorms)

Actually the property looked beautiful; clean, bright and comfortable. However that is of no use if your booking is not honoured. The integrity of this owner that was totally absent.

The staff are really nice and location is very good. Not far from the railway station and is on the edge of University. Quite easy to find and has many restaurants & pubs around. Breakfast is not bad including cereals, toast, milk, biscuits,jam, peanut butter, basic but nice. One detail is that the lodge serves us with the sun pat peanut butter which is relatively more expensive compared to other brands haha:)

Breakfast was wonderful. Having the Internet was excellent. The bathroom was beautiful.

When we got there we realized that the hotel was far out of Oxford. When you book online you only get the 'four economy rooms' budget and would never stay here again. Also just to let you know they are doing renovations so was woken up at 7:30am. Also could hear the people next door, one talking and two doing up pants zipper.
