A three day visit. Seasoned travellers.
On arrival, the public bar's image was not enhanced in that the customers were both drinking from cans.
The draught beer, only one choice ,was v.poor. The evening meal was acceptable for the price. The bed was clean and the towels were good quality and changed each day. I had to draw attention to the dirty shower head, it was replaced with apologies. The widowsills in the public bar where breakfast was served were laden with dust and dead insects. However it was the cheap option for Oxford and the location is pleasant . If I were to be more critical then I probably would be being harsh. The place had a very casual atmosphere. So I suppose you get what you pay for. It was more like a workmans B and B than a tourist establishment.
Shabby but welcoming
Bob was very friendly.
The was lovely. The room could have been cleaner. And there was a strange smell in the hallway. We stayed in the room above the pub. Another couple we spoke to were stating in the house at the side and they said it was very clean x all in all it wasn't too bad x
Stopover in Oxford
This is an ideal place for a short break for dog owners and those with children.
The place is very friendly and homely. There is a very large play area at the back of the hotel for children which also provides an excellent exercise amenity for dog owners which in our case was a huge bonus.
One Night's stay at the Rose!
Greeted mid afternoon to drop belongings off before heading up to Thame/Oakley for family visit.
We booked in during a family party/bbq - the place was buzzing. On return about 9 pm able to properly take in the quality of the room, clean, airy and supplied with all needs. Lack of a wardrobe for a longer stay, but no matter for us. Ensuite a bit narrow - sink too large, not much turning space otherwise. Quieter down in bar during evening, not much clientele (maybe after an exhausting bbq!). It was quirky; with lots of quirky parahanalia about. Bob's breakfast homely and very yummy. Nice for a summer's one nighter and can agree with a lot of the other comments, knowing how welcoming Bob and Shiela are. Think they are missing a trick though in some areas of accommodation professionalism i.e found some long door screws on carpet outside room, where some work had been going on, there was a tray full of some toiletry items lurking on a side table on the landing and attention to the tables being cleaned between guests eating breakfast, would have been more appealing. Otherwise a jolly stay and a unique establishment - long may she reign - England's Rose!
Superb old English Welcome
Stayed only one night in the double room which was pleasant and comfortable, not five star but for the money extremely excellent value.
Couldn't fault the friendly welcome and both the land lady and bar staff couldn't do enough to help. Breakfast was as described "A full English" and again was excellent.
If your looking for the Ritz this it isn't, but if your looking for super value for money, in good clean friendly traditional pub environment then it is. Had a great time, and thanks again.
