Good Hotel Guide Review
Town and gown gather at the smart restaurant and buzzy bar of Jeremy Mogford’s sleek, ‘perfectly positioned’ hotel between All Souls and Oriel colleges. (Gown and town, too, debate the merits of the modern art that adorns the public spaces.) The ‘obliging staff’ and ‘well-appointed bedrooms’ make this an ‘excellent hotel’, Guide readers say. ‘It may not be cheap, but I wouldn’t stay anywhere else in Oxford,’ one correspondent comments. Recently refurbished, the stylish bedrooms have luxury fabrics and more striking artwork. Discuss room choices before booking: some rooms may be ‘compact but serviceable’; others, quiet, peer on to a side alleyway; others yet have a ‘delightful view of the High’. All have a ‘comfy bed’, a ‘well-stocked minibar’ and fluffy bathrobes. A ‘commendable breakfast’ includes porridge with a quince compote, or salmon fishcakes and spinach; at lunch and dinner, the food – perhaps warm octopus, chickpeas, paprika; confit duck, salsify, gem lettuce – is ‘generally good’. Eat on the garden terrace in balmy weather. ‘The car park, though tight, is a bonus.’ (E and JG, and others)
