The Tower House, Oxford
This place is really nice.
The Tower House is great. This is my second time staying here and I could not be happier. The Turk Street cafe has wonderful food. The employees are really friendly and helpful. This place is great.

A Cozy Stay
The location is excellent. Our room was cozy and bathroom beautiful.Wifi was listed as available but it was not accessible in our room and only with difficulty from the "office" room. No hot water on first night and part of second day; we were able to shower upstairs. We could not unpack or relax upon arrival because workmen were using our closet for plumbing/electrical repairs. We were given a room price discount for this inconvenience. Breakfasts (included) at the Turl St. Kitchen with large cappuccinos were delicious. The office/administration staff were friendly and helpful, including giving us muhch information about rail and bus travel before our trip.

Charming hotel in middle of Oxford
I loved this charming old hotel. It was perfectly clean, comfortable, and in a wonderful location. The cafe was close and the food delicious. This hotel is high on charm and character but may not be appropriate for someone who wants modern luxury and/or quiet. The room had no phone, but it had beams and a view of beautiful architecture.

Awesome place in center of Oxford
Friendly welcoming helpful staff. Excellent food, locally sourced. Didn't mind sharing bath. Can't beat location!

We stayed in the Foundry room which was one of the Deluxe Ensuites. The room size was great and everything was well-maintained. Staff were incredible. I would imagine some of the other rooms would have to be pretty small, but we didn't see them. We really enjoyed the charm of the old building and the location cannot be beat in the heart of Oxford. Breakfast at Turl Street Kitchen was wonderful.
