One review of “Holiday Inn Oxford”

    Lisa Atherstone & Ash Sharma

    27th November 2017

    So the weekend was over and I could sense the Monday blues approaching, however all was not lost I had a trip in the calendar for Monday in Oxford. We were staying at the Holiday Inn at Peartree Roundabout not far from central Oxford, the hotel is ideally situated as a hub in our case, a 2 minute walk to the park and ride at Peartree for a quick visit to the new shopping complex at WestGate in Oxford Centre or a walk around the medieval old town and the Oxford universities. Our Hotel was also only a 10 minute car journey from the newly relaunched Bicester Village and after all that shopping some serenity and relaxation can be found at Blenheim Palace again a short car trip from our Hotel. If you do arrive at the hotel without your own transport fear not, there are a number of executive cars at the hotel that can whisk you where you want to go, a price can be obtained from the hotel directly.

    I live in Oxfordshire and work for an International company, I frequently travel in and around the UK for business which involves overnight stays, on this occasion this trip was thankfully for pleasure! On arriving at the Hotel we parked up in the well-lit and generously sized car park, extracted our luggage from the car and made our way to reception, which was light airy and nicely decorated. Maria greeted us with a warm smile and checked us in seamlessly, explained all of the amenities at the hotel from the restaurant to the large and well equipped on site gym which boasts swimming pool, Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. We chose to have a quick drink before heading off to our room, off to the bar we went which is very nicely stocked with a good selection of beers, wines and spirits from popular to unique. On sitting we noticed an extensive bar menu whilst reading started to make my tummy rumble, we had a while to go as our table at the restaurant was booked for 8pm, so some dry roasted peanuts would need to satisfy until then! After a short time we gathered our bags and made our way to our room which was on the 3rd floor at the back of the hotel, although a standard double guest room it was well equipped with the usual bathroom amenities, large tv, comfy bed, tea & coffee making and an added bonus of a cooler which would come in handy in the summer, not on a cold November evening! The air conditioning was duly turned up to take any hint of chill out of the room, I had an hour to kill and by chance had my gym gear with me, so off to the gym I went whilst the other half got to grips with unpacking and mastering the tv remote. The gym was a good size and had the latest cardiovascular equipment and resistance machines, with a selection of free weights and moveable benches oh and before I forget the lockers in the changing area you will need to bring an old pound coin if you don’t have one the gym staff will be happy to provide for you. Time had passed quickly and I never managed to try the wet area of the gym, there is a large glass wall viewing area where you can see the whole pool area everything looked clean tidy and would be worth a visit.

    We arrived at the restaurant bang on 8pm and were welcomed by Annetta who offered us a table of our choice, we were seated and provided with some menus, on perusing the menu we decided to opt for the great deal on offer at the hotel “two dine for £39.99” this includes a starter and main course plus 175ml glass of wine or a soft drink per person, when added up from the normal menu we worked out quite a big saving. The offer has been run for some time and the menu choice changes regularly. I had ordered the Herb crusted Portobello mushroom fries that came with a blue cheese dressing on the side with leaves and the good lady had chef’s soup of the day which was piping hot potato and leek it came with warm rustic bread, both starters were fresh full of flavour and quickly devoured. For the mains we had ordered Grilled rump steak which came cooked as requested, with garlic roasted mushroom, grilled tomato, skin on chips & rocket salad, the steak does come with a £2.00 supplement however this is still great value for money as the overall dine for two deal was inexpensive.

    Finishing off our wine we thanked Annetta and Sean and departed the restaurant and went for a wander around the hotel, we noticed behind reception there are a number of meeting rooms which are part of a dedicated conference centre which can be booked with the hotel for private or business use and can accommodate 2 to 160 people, packages are available that include food, beverages and accommodation.

    After a restful night’s sleep in our very clean, warm and comfortable room we awoke early to go down for breakfast at junctions restaurant, which included the usual cereals and pastries, cooked items and self-service hot beverages, breakfast was freshly cooked including my made to order poached eggs what a great way to start the morning!. After our breakfast we packed up and closed to the door to our room, Maria checked us out with a warm and friendly smile, the time went so quickly.

    We had a lovely stay, I was very impressed by all of the staff and would recommend a visit it is in a great location close to lots of attractions and shopping and with the festive period fast approaching the hotel has a number of great offers for Christmas party nights and festive lunches, you will not be disappointed.
