Overnight stop on our UK Trip

This was a one-night stop on our journey around the UK. The room was clean and comfortable, although there was only one chair so one person had to sit on the bed. The hotel is on the outskirts of Oxford. A point to note for travellers is that are lots of restrictions on roads in central Oxford, so the best option is to find the nearest park and ride station and leave your car there and take the bus in and back. It is cheap and efficient and the buses are frequent.

Great Value

I am very impressed with Holiday Inn Express, in particular their value for money. The Kassam hotel was no exception. Conveniently located on the edge of oxford (brilliant if you want to attend anything at Kassam Stadium!). Comfortable rooms, all necessary amenities, free breakfats, free WiFi (if you're a Priority Club member - free to join). Highly recommended!

Mixed bag

Arriving late in the evening, all we wanted to do is check-in, have a drink, and get some sleep so we were fresh for our friend's wedding the following day...it wasn't as smooth unfortunately... At the desk, the receptionist asked for our names but it appeared that the system had made a real error which caused all sorts of confusion. It was the right surname, but the wrong first name! How weird! What was slightly annoying was that we had paid up-front and had the booking confirmation with us! Almost reluctantly, the team of receptionists gave us the room key and checked us in. Requesting an iron was simple enough (although guests have to collect from reception downstairs), a drink in the bar was pleasant, and breakfast was ok...what really let us down was checking out. So on check-out day, we pack our things and head downstairs. We handover the room key and request to check-out. It seems that they haven't rectified the name error, which was a bit irritating...and then I get hit with a bill which isn't mine! In front of the breakfast hall and welcome area, the receptionist continued to insist it was my bill to pay. Her colleague intervened (thank goodness) and began by listening to our problem, quickly understanding that an error had been made somewhere. Meanwhile, the first receptionist has prepared the card-reader, urging me to insert my card to pay - how rude and annoying!? The receptionist that was co-operating showed us the bill so we can see what they have against our room and guess what...wrong room! In the end, they got the right room and charged us for what we had at the bar. Just goes to show that first and last impressions really stay with you, and unfortunately, I will not be staying here again.

I had a very pleasant stay. Staff

I had a very pleasant stay. Staff were very helpful and friendly. The only negative point I would make is that I think the price for buying internet access was very unreasonable.
