Oxford is well serviced by train and coach from London and is a great location to base yourself to see the Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace, and Bicester Village Shopping Centre. The Oxford Tube bus company leaves London every 12 minutes and costs 11 to 14 return, Megabus is 1 when booked in advance on the internet. If you want to take the train, it is only 1 hour to Oxford, leaving from Paddington Station and will cost approx 23 return.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The location is quite good, just 4 mins walk from the railway station, and it is near the oxford shopping centre, too. But the facilities there is terrible, I ordered one night there (4 in a room), one of the biggest problems is that there were no sockets in the room. If you want to charge your phones or something, you have to go out your room and spent several hours in the TV/Bar room. It cost me 19 pounds for one night, compared to similar type of rooms I have ordered in other places, it was a little expensive. You definitely would not like the shower room there, it was not good. Service there was ok, and breakfast there is free.
