  • Family with children
    5.0

    Nothing. Poor service. No elevators near rooms. The ad on the internet is not the same as the real thing. No smoking facilities. No room service. No place to drink coffee early in the morning. I booked a room for my 2 children and there was only 1 double bed.

    Very pleasant stay though arriving late in the evening restricted exploring all the hotels atractions. Room was well furnished and very clean and comfotable. Good breakfast facilities and an excellent location.

    The Village that I live in is called deddington, not Deddingtton.

    The room was amazing.

    135R for breakfast was hugely overpriced for what there was to offer.

  • Single

    The room is very comfortable and the modern design is great. Its location is perfect (within a short walk of the Aquarium, Waterfront..) and it was great value for money. The staff was nice and helpful.

    The room finishes, and location

    When it rains, you certailny can hear it through the roof

  • Single

    This is not an hotel but a university campus. The room itself is very good, modern and comfortable but that's all.

    Currently the hotel is under renovation. Therefore it is not an hotel. You sleep in a University campus. No lobby, no fitness, no bar but a canteen... Very disappointing....

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The new decor and comfortable bed.

    The door to the bathroom is badly placed and must be a design fault.

  • Single
    10.0

    The staff were very professional and friendly. The room was always very clean and well-organised. The hotel was also quiet and serene.

    Directional signs were not always available or clear.

  • Single
    8.2

    Staff are friendly and helpful. the room was neat and clean. Design of room very nice and modern.

    Takes very long to get to the rooms, there is no easy access to specific areas of the hotel, if there is, an easier route was not shown to me. The restuarant is very expensive for the type/quality of food being served.

  • Single
    10.0

    This hotel was located perfectly for access to ' The Waterfront ' and just about anywhere else in the area you wish to visit. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful, and we were all very glad we chose this Hotel, and a big thankyou to all the staff there.

    The ' only ' let down was the price of internet access.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    We had a deluxe double for 2 nights. The room was spacious, modern and very clean. The bathroom had a separate bath and shower unit and was a frosted glass partition. Location fantastic for V+A Waterfront.

    The central poisition of the hotel

    The basin bowl in bathroom is a little small
