Mr Robin H

Cheap and convenient for one night stay. The building is right next to the St Clement's St. bus stop, perfect if taking the airport bus from Heathrow or Gatwick.
Ms Ronja H

Excellent location, very clean.

Very nice staff to check in and out. Room had everything I needed and was very good value for money
Ms Sarah K

Easy reach of the town centre but also great restaurants, bars and action on your door step. We paryhed at Thornhill and took the park and ride to st Clements the bus drops you off a few hundred yards away from your room.. staff were friendly and efficient we were able to check in at 11 rather than 2 the room was basic but had all we needed including tea and coffee making facilities and functional ensuite shower room with toilet. We only sleep and wash at hotel but at a saving of over half I am not complaining... Will definitely be staying again and telling all my friends a great idea!

I booked this accommodation because it was in Oxford and so reasonably priced. It was excellent - spotless, with everything one would need (kettle, toiletries, en suite bathroom). I would highly recommend this accommodation to everyone,
