Service and Staff
Property condition


  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
  • Disliked: Staff & service

The room itself was lovely, very big and pretty. The bathroom was huge! And very recently done up so very neat and tidy. Bed comfortable also. Worst thing was the street noise, room was very warm even with Fan on so had to have the window open which opened straight onto a busy road so was very noisy and disturbing, especially in the early hours. Check in was a bit confusing, on my booking confirmation it said 11am, and when I arrived to book around 1.30pm i was promptly told that it was from 3pm, and was made to feel uncomfortable about this. When I checked back in, i asked about the restaurant that evening to be told it was closed Sunday and Monday, and was kindly recommended the South African restaurant next door - which was also closed? On the Tuesday night when we inquired if the restuarant was open we were very abruptly told "No" with no other explanation... Not the most friendly of experiences!!

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities

Property located in Ashley Cross which is a hub of activity at night and during the weekend evenings. Our room was situated above one of the main entrances to the pub so on a Friday and Saturday night you could hear the door men chattering and people shouting outside smoking ciggeretts which meant sleep was disturbed. The windows were single glazed and only one opened which meant the room got rather hot.

Disappointing Stay at the Ox Hotel Bar and Grill

No yoghurt or fruit at breakfast, but was on the menu. TV didn't work (aerial connector faulty). Poor (and dangerous) bedroom furniture.

Would recommend

Good comfortable room with a large bathroom. Breakfast was included with the room and was very nice and made to order. Small car park to the rear of the hotel. Would visit again.
