                    The bar was really impressive, as was the venue as a whole

                    No choice of room

                    The ambience of the hotel is great, very 'quirky' and amusing

                    Did not get a room in one of the cells which was the the whole point of my visit with my girlfriend. the room was nice but did not represent the 'prison' feeling.

                    Bit of a rip off. Room lighting poor.£20 overnight parking charge excessive. Food expensive if eating in.We had two bottles of wine( £13 &£42) two steaks and starters and the bill came to £140. Total bill was £350 for the night. Overall, I feel the charges outwiegh the experience, so will not be staying there again.

                    Felt that it was more important to maximise hotel revenues rather than give a fantastic customer experience. I am certainly telling all friends and business contacts to avoid staying at this hotel as £350 final bill is just too high

                    The friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, from reception, bar, and house-keeping. A credit to the hotel

                    Superb location and brilliant building and fittings made it a great, albeit pricey hotel. Well worth it for treats though!

                    The staff were outstanding; the decor was beautiful and interesting, the room (which was booked at the last moment and reduced rate) was an absolute bargain (new road side 407) we loved it and wished we could have stayed longer.

                    Nothing at all; it was one of the best experiences we have had.

                    Creative use of an historic building.

                    Poor customer service - reception too preoccupied with computer - slow check in and out.

                    great room, location, clean, comfortable, stylish, good food

                    I was not told in advance that there was a £20 fee to park the car outside. When I phoned in advance to ask if there was parking as I was deciding whether to drive to take the train I was only told that there was plenty of space. They later reduced the fee to £10 but should tell customers automatically. The internet access is also very misleading. The paperwork and staff clearly indicate that you purchase 8 hours at a time on a pincode - they do not tell you that it is consecutive and not used at various times across the stay. They did acknowledge that but these were two unnecessary frustrations.

                    Please write at least 15 words Quirky and great fun.The staff were really attentive in all areas and the food delicious. Good location for exploring Oxford on foot.

                    Lack of signage on the street. Oxford traffic management is tough for the newcomer and we passed the entrance twice and finally ended at the rear non-entrance. Even an A board would help.

                    i liked the location, the staff and the comfortable beds. it was very central, well located

                    the room was absolutely amazingly and unbelieveably small! i ve seen far bigger bathrooms than our room! it made the logistics of two people dressing or moving around in the room impossible! also staff had no recommendations either for dinner or for general area to aim for - we found the street with lots restaurants ourselves in the end!

                    Everything was ok, but not really special. Can be recommended but with some reservation.

                    More people in reception would be needed. Too much waiting. Breakfast started quite late on Saturday.

                    The history of the building and how the rooms had been converted into luxury accommodation

                    There were tribute bands playing outside our room each of our four night stay. These finished by 9.30pm and were not very well attended. The irritating thing was that every time we tried to access out room we were automatically asked if we had tickets rather than if we were staying with the hotel.
