    Perfect location to explore Oxford.15 minute walk along the River into Oxford city,with restaurants,cafes and pubs en route.Well appointed rooms with VERY comfortable beds.All hotel staff were delightful and very efficient and helpful.

    Unfortunate that their spa and facilities were closed,obviously due to Covid 19.

    Poor reception staff. Told us the room was not booked and that the company we booked with had gone bankrupt. They hadn’t and had paid the hotel it ruined our anniversary break which we have had for the last thirty years. Charging now for parking! Everything even being charged twice for a cold breakfast was blamed on a system error. Paid for superior room yet above kitchen with all the noise to go with it. Worse stay in a hotel I think I have ever had.

    Stayed at the Oxford Spires last night with dinner included in the price.The service we received was excellent, the young lad Mowassa was an excellent waiter who was very friendly and welcoming. The food was excellent as was the breakfast and it is a lovely 10 minute walk to town along the riverside

    Perfect

    The location was exellent as it was very close to the centre of Oxford, no need for car or taxi. The food was excellent and the staff were always polite and accomodating. The lounge was comfortable and variety of food and drink should appeal to all.

    Having stayed in a ground floor room it was quiet noisy with people returning at all hours of the night and being able to hear conversations as we are people who like to have windows open as much as possible night or day.

    Perfect

    Close walk to city center - 15mins. Or you can take the bus which takes less than 7 mins and the stop is across the street from the hotel. The gym was dated but sufficient and good, and same with the rooms but still very comfortable (we stayed in a room with a double bed and a pull out sofa bed - triple). The breakfast buffet was great.

    location close to river, can walk into Oxford via delightful riverside walk, didn't need to take car out, as soon as you turn into hotel driveway it speaks of care and excellence, grounds beautiful, retreat from busy roads and city centre, it suited us (two couples) perfectly, breakfast was served in an excellent manner, set out clearly and without mess, we didn't have dinner in the hotel but heard the live piano music which was a lovely touch, reception helpful and efficient and human!, bar staff served us lunch outside willingly, lovely rooms

    Very good

    In a city where hotel accommodation is usually near the road, Oxford Spires is set back in its own grounds - peaceful and quiet, yet close enough to the centre to be able to walk (15 minutes). Car parking is excellent, which is a bonus in Oxford and there are frequent buses past the end of the driveway for those who prefer not to walk. Really good venue for Christchurch meadows, the colleges, the bookshops, the eateries and ... the shops!
