  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The Ethos Hotel is very conveniently situated about 10 minutes walk from the centre of Oxford. Our suite was great, with a lounge area and kitchenette. Breakfast was very good. However the best thing was the staff - Giovanna was excellent, along with the new girl - I think her name was Fem. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Oxford.

    Great stay

    Had the sky loft suite for two nights, great room, soft bed and welcome pack included. Breakfast was great and staff friendly and helpful, near to the town centre and quiet at night, overall good stay!

    Basic but ok.

    We booked a deluxe room, but the room was very basic nothing deluxe about it, but it did have the king size bed that we wanted. Could have been cleaner, but ok. More concerned that the fire doors were all held open, you could also smell the ‘greasy spoon’ smells from the kitchen everywhere and that make the fact that the fire doors were open even more concerning.

    Disappointed

    Had to ask to move rooms on first night. Room looked nothing like the pictures advertised, carpet frayed and an inch short of the walls, shower rail broken(had to hold in place), grout and silicone missing, toilet seat broken, generally tatty, had sink and oven in the bedroom!. Second room better but still short of what's advertised, rooms described as having designer wallpaper ( neither room had any wallpaper whatsoever! Staff however we're very friendly and helpful. Breakfast porridge was cold and has frozen berries on it.

    Friendly, quirky but good value

    Cannot fault the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, but the hotel seemed a little tired. The communal areas needed a bit of attention. The net curtains in our room windows were frayed and there was a cobweb or two. But apart from the miscommunication about the VERY limited on-site parking availability, the location was perfect for walking into town centre for shopping or eating.

    Excellent location. Very close to the centre of Oxford. Only 5 minutes walk. Nice full English breakfast. However, very overpriced and room could have been cleaner.

    Exceptional stay.

    Our stay at Ethos was delightful. From the reception on arrival, till the day we left we could not fault it at all. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. The rooms were spotless and very well equipped. Only a few minutes walk from the centre of Oxford. Will definitely stay there again on our next visit to Oxford. Exceptionally good value. Well recommended.

    Not a 4 star hotel

    The hotel has a very nice lady receptionist from Poland. The hot full English breakfast is also good. Location is walking distance from the town centre. Unfortunately, I don’t think this is a 4 star hotel, the place is located at the residential area, it’s actually a Victorian row houses that were converted as hotel. The parking is at the back in which you have to pass a very narrow alleyway. In fact I almost scratch my car. You have to pay for the parking during your stay which I don’t think it’s worth it as it’s more cheaper to park in the town centre if you do a 24 hrs ticket and probably would even feel safer.
