Reviews - Westgate Hotel
Perfect hotel -
The hotel was perfect for staying a few days. The citycenter is on walking distance. The road is busy, but you get used to it. The last night(5 to 6 sept) there were people working on the street till about 3 in the middle of night, but even that was doable. Breakfast was OK, everything was there, the chocalatebread was delicious. So me and my brother as well had a great stay!!!!

Reviewer:SEO J | Mon 5th Aug 2019 | 1 month ago
Ich kann das Hotel fÃ¼r einen kurzen Aufenthalt empfehlen. Das Zimmer war fÃ¼r 4 Personen und einen Hund sehr klein, aber ordentlich. Da sich das Hotel an einer HauptstraÃŸe befindet ist es Nachts teilweise etwas lauter. Das Bad ist gut ausgestattet und war sauber. Die Besitz sind sehr freundlich. Ein gutes kontinentales FrÃ¼hstÃ¼ck war im Preis inbegriffen. Es gab Saft, Toast, Diverse Croissants, Honig, Marmelade, Obstsalat, Cerealien, Quark, Joghurt, Milch, Tee, Kaffee und alles so viel man wollte. Die Lage ist perfekt. Man ist fuÃŸlÃ¤ufig in maximal 10 Minuten in der Innenstadt und in ein paar Minuten direkt an der Themse und am Bahnhof. AuÃŸerdem steht ein Parkplatz zur VerfÃ¼gung. Das Hotel ist sehr einfach, hat aber alles, was man braucht!

It is worth the price -

Reviewer:Waltraud H | Mon 15th Jul 2019 | 2 months ago
Value for money -
The hotel was very clean and convenient (few minutes walking from the train station). We spent only the night sleeping, of course, and did not need more than what the hotel offered. The room was not airconditioned, and hence we slept with windows open;on the upper floor, this was no problem at all. The neighborhood is quiet, but the rooms are not strongly isolated, hence noise from the corridor or WC was easily heard. We would choose this hotel for the same purpose (simple overnight while exploring Oxford) again.
Reviewer:Jana V | Sun 14th Jul 2019 | 2 months ago
Would definitely book this hotel again -
Great breakfast. Comfy bed. Very good shower. Friendly staff members. Free car parking. Handy location ie not far to walk to centre / attractions etc. Good value. Very clean (and I am fussy so if I say very clean, you can bet it is). Free wifi. What's not to like! If we had any criticisms it would be that it was noisy due to being so close to the main road - but we expected that, so near to the centre. We still slept well! We had a double room with ensuite and can recommend this hotel - we'd certainly go back.

Nice Weekend Away -
Nice hotel is a supurb location, close to the city centre.Bedroom were spacious, clean and tidy. Only down fall is the hotel is close to a road so you get traffic noise but It personally did not affect our stay.Breakfast is really nice choice of fruit, cereal, juices and a hot breakfast.Staff were polite and attentive.Would stay again!

Westgate Hotel -

We had a lovely time in Oxford and the Westgate hotel family room June 2019. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the accommodation was adequate. The stairs upstairs are very very steep so not for people with bad knees :)

Excellent location within easy walking distance of city centre. Room clean bed very comfortable. Good shower. This is an old hotel and the decor is dated and traditional but if you want a budget hotel in Oxford it would be hard to beat. We would return. Breakfast also good.

Pleasant stay. -
The hotel is conveniently located a stones throw from the train station.It is a smalland efficient establishment, clean and comfortable.Be warned the stairs are steep and tight but we got our luggage up with no issues.The staff were pleasant and welcoming, we arrived well before check in time having disembarked form QE2 in Southampton early that morning. We hoped we would be able to drop off our luggage and tour the town. They allowed us to check in as our room was ready so we took a quick nap before walking about Oxford.The breakfast in the garden the next morning more then exceeded our expectation with both good service and food.We we regret our stay was so brief.

Reviewer:Labatt S | Tue 21st May 2019 | 3 months ago
Warm and friendly -
Looking at the outside of the hotel and the closest vicinityfirst made us doubt the wiseness of our choice. But once inside the very warm and friendly welcome soon dispelled these thoughts. Our rooms were newly refurbished and in perfect condition. The location close to the railway station was convenient. Short walking distance to the city centre. The only slightly negative remark I have is that the bed was a bit on the short side. If you, are, like I am, 6 foot+ your feet will dangle over the edge
Reviewer:Mikael M | Mon 20th May 2019 | 4 months ago
Friendly, clean -
Arrived at the hotel and it does look a bit dated but booked for a convenient location and parking facilities.I had an annexe room with my own ensuite.It was a bit odd being directed from the hotel down a road to the house/annexe but once there it was very clean and I felt safe.I have no criticism apart from maybe better quality pillows as they were really thin.Everyone very friendly and for me, it was a good visit for business.Oxford is very expensive and this offered good value for money given the location.Wifi was good, nice towels, TV, tea coffee etc in the room.Breakfast looked great but sadly did not have time to stay and enjoy it.Would use again if in the area.

Good Value in an Expensive City -
This hotel offers good value in a very expensive city. Accommodation is without frills but rooms are very clean, beds comfortable and plenty of hot water for the shower. Getting a freshly cooked English breakfast was a real bonus and was of a higher quality than is often found in more expensive establishments.

Westgate delight -
As soon as we entered the Westgate Hotel, we felt welcomed and at ease, We were served with a smile, and nothing was too much trouble.The room we were give had it's on-suite bathroom. Everything was clean and set out to help you settle in straight away. The WI-fi was free and the we had a lovely breakfast. The location of the hotel is ideal if you travel by train, as it is a 2 minute walk to the door. On the main street into Oxford Center. We will definitely stay again when next in Oxford.

Westgate Hotel is located in a good location, walkable distance to Oxford city centre. We stayed in a family room with 1 double and 2 single beds - perfect set up for a family . There is parking next to the hotel. The staff is very friendly . We were able to check in early and leave the car at the car park for 2 hours after we checked out. Breakfast was delicious . Choice of English breakfast , crossaints and cereal. The only negative was that there was no shower gel in the bathroom.

Dog friendly -
Westgate Hotel has become our first choice when visiting Oxford by being both centrally located and dog-friendly. Clean, tidy comfortable rooms and a tasty full english breakfast - all at a reasonable price (for Oxford anyway). The staff are always polite. We have to stay quite a way out of the centre if they are full in order to find another place that accepts dogs.

Excellent location. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable. Wonderful breakfast. Heard that the main hotel was noisy but we were put up in "the annex"across the road which was quiet and enjoyable. Only downside was that it's a bit overpriced. But in their defense, they pay booking.com a hefty commission. Next time, I'll book directly from the hotel site.

Very convenient being so close to the station and city centre and all amenities - yet quiet throughout the night. The room was sqacious, very clean and comfortable. Although it was a shared toilet and shower room (as expected from the booking) it was spotlessly clean. Generous and tastey breakfast. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. No frills just what was needed for an overnight stay. All in all good value.

Short stay. -
The hotel itself was comfortable, and staff and owner very helpful. Breakfast was good quality and adequate. Our room on 2nd floor was very noisy as we were adjacent to the main road and directly opposite the the youth hostel, whose patrons seemed very noisy until about 1.00am each night. If I were to go to Oxford again I would use the hotel if I could have a room at the back overlooking the garden which was very nicely laid out. The hotel is by the railway station and literally 10 minutes walk from the centre of Oxford.

Nice people, great breakfast -
Everyone at the hotel was very friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was excellent. The location is also great as it is very close to the train station and a short walk to the city center. Make sure you ask for a room not facing the street since the ones that do are very loud at night, and not just the traffic and the trains, but also people talking outside the room. Very difficult to sleep at night.

Really enjoyed my stay:the landlord was very friendly and helpful, recommending pubs (I did try the Rose &Crown, it was excellent!) and directions. Breakfast was fabulous, the waiting staff were very attentive and the food was of excellent quality and really well-prepared. The room was of a good size for a single, not much storage space but it didn't need it, and plenty of opening windows. I would expect some people to say the decor was tired, but it was simply a few years' old, and everything was clean and the linens fresh. For the price, and the fact there is parking, I couldn't recommend this hotel more highly.

Outstanding service -
The Westgate Hotel Oxford comes under the "Cheap &Cheerful"category, but it is much more than that. Yes, it was clean, the staff friendly and the bed comfortable. They had taken note of my dietary requirements and served me a substantial bowl of gluten free, soya milk porridge for each breakfast. Now the down points:no towel rail in the shower, nowhere to put it within reach while using the shower. Also the cubicle was so tight that I had to stand with the door open to dry myself! A hook on the back of the door to hang a wet coat would have been an advantage. Finally the TV did not work. That old menace the intermittent fault - picture for five minutes, then a crackling mosaic, then an error message ... I gave up &read a book! But my real praise is for how I was treated on Sunday morning. Because it was snowing I decided to go home on an earlier train. Not only did Steve look up train times for me, and bring down my luggage, he also asked one of his staff to run me to the station in her car to save me calling a taxi. I could not be more grateful. If I have occasion to visit Oxford again I will certainly book in at the Westgate!

I was in another room which is next to the main road for the next day. The traffic noise affects my sleeping quality as I have to let the window opened for airflow. I am pleased with the friendly staffs in Westgate. Do book your room through their own website so that you could save Â£5 off the price rack.

Nice and friendly-
We had a very warm and friendly reception at the Westgate hotel. The room we had was in the annex and was tidy and the accommodations clean and in good order. The breakfast was a real pleasure and we can recommend the Westgate to those that are looking for a room to rest and explore the nearby historical Center of Oxford

Vonfortable like home -
I stwy wt the single room with bathroom and its clean confortable itsnt cold. Its to near to the central of oxford city 19 munutes to walk or 6 or 8 street. The people who manage the hotel its so sweet and friendly. The only thing they should keep in mind is the carpet in the hall. Probably creates a musty smell and that can annoy some client. For the rest really thank u im enjoy my visit qt the hotel.

Budget with some great features-
This hotel is great value when you consider a room in a backpackers hostel is only a little less money. At the Westgate the decor is tired and needs refreshing but on the other hand you get a private room, friendly staff, a comfy, clean bed with a stunning breakfast all in a central location. As long as you accept that the decor is going to be a bit rough, you will not be disappointed with the rest of your stay. The croissants were superb :)

Dear,The reception was friendly. I was a little bit disappointed that my location was not at The Westgate Hotel. Also I had thought that toilet and shower would be in the room and not shared but that I had not read properly in advance.My room was very quietly, but maybe I was lucky because I think I was the only person in the building. I slept very well after a long day. The breakfast to my surprise was excellent including fruitsalad and english breakfast.The location near the railway station and the Paul Rodgers concert at the New theatre nearby were excellent.So I enjoyed my stay and would probably come again.

Just a bit scared to be there alone (in the hotel I would be felt more protected but maybe less confortable). It was very quiet and nice, with bathroom inside, TV and clean towels everyday. Breakfast was good especially for cooked food but I eat only sweet things in the morning, so I could eat only fresh fruit, juice and toast with jam. Maybe it could be better to have more choice on sweet food for breakfast such as cakes, croissants and biscuits. The hotel has a good location just 10 minutes walking from the centre, passing near railway, bus and taxi stations. The owners have been very nice, I could also borrow an hair drier and an adaptor, finally also I could leave my baggage in the hotel the last day, after the check out until my bus arrived.

Great location -
Ideal accommodation if you want to be close to the station. Linen sheet &pillow case appreciated. Good quality bacon at breakfast. some road noise but ok unless you're a light sleeper. Pretty garden.No frills but fine for the price - bearing in mind that Oxford is astronomical!

Married couple with Pet Dog -
Being a disabled couple with our room on the top floor, and no lift, we found it difficult coping with the stairs when ever leaving or returning to our room. The room was nice and cosy and the bed was very comfortable. We could not fault the food but were disapointed when we were told that we could not have our Dog with us at Breakfast time, considering that this is a pet friendly hotel we found was unacceptable as it meant leaving the animal in a room by himself or my wife and I having breakfast at different times, which is what happened. Apart from this minor mishap I can say we enjoyed our stay at your hotel.To improve may I suggest that, even though I know that you are limited for space, if you try to accomodate for customers with pets an area were they can have breakfast together

Got their en suite annex, completely separate of everything else, nice and quiet. For about half the price of nearby hotel rooms!

Seemed to be a family run business.

Not the Ritz but comfortable and casual -
The hotel is an older one, and could do with a revamp. However, it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. The free carpark out front was a godsend as we didn't need to move the car - you could simply walk anywhere in town in ten to fifteen minutes. As a value-for-money place it was a great stay!

Stay at WH January 6 and 7 2015 -
Overall satisfactory.Very good cooked breakfasts quickly served.On first night cold water tap not working so had to clean my teeth with hot water.This was rectified for second night when I reported it. However, it suggests that rooms are not carefully checked in advance of new guests arriving against a check list of key points ( of which running water is a must ). I believe this ought to happen. Helpful staff. Hotel could do with a paint facelift. For example, one of the external letters at the entrance to the hotel in WESTGATE HOTEL ( see photo above ) was missing and created a poor, initial impression to first time guests. I have marked 4 below but was seriously thinking about giving 3.

All round good -
I have read several bad reviews online but found it to be overall a pretty good stay, my only gripes are a fairly dusty room and a small breakfast, I wouldn't say 1 bacon, 1 sausage, 1 egg and 1 tomato makes what they described as a "full English". But it is a two star and everything you would expect for the price, great location, friendly staff who helped me with everything I needed, would recommend staying in the main hotel but can not speak for the "annex"they sometimes send customers to which is on the opposite side of the road as I didn't have to do that.

I wonder if the Westgate Hotel should really be called the Westgate B&B?Because other rooms were not available, we stayed in a "family room"in the annexe. I was disappointed to have to share a bathroom and toilet with other guests. For Â£100 a night I'd expect ensuite rooms.

Tv, internet n tea n coffee facilities make it feel like home everything u need and they even include a free breakfast which is lovely food, not posh but feels like home, the staff are friendly polite and quick to assist you. I love the feel of the annex rooms they are like renting a room in a house like having your own private small house with own entrance so it doesn't feel like a hotel, or if you prefer that stay in the main hotel section instead. The choice is yours so suitable for anyone depending what you prefer they can accommodate either preference. Or choose a room with shared toliet for even cheaper price so can also suit all budgets low to mid. Not a posh 5star but if you want value for money clean friendly place in centre this wins hands down! Im a regular.

We had one family sized room and 3 ensuite rooms.The staff were friendly, the room was clean with towels and the breakfast was good and catered for food intolerances (gluten-free and dairy-free on request).The weather was perfect during our stay and we were able to enjoy breakfast in the quiet and pretty garden which was a bonus.Despite the building looking very dated and tired, the bedroom was nice and had everything you needed. The bed was comfy.The hotel was in an ideal location (in the city centre and opposite the train station) and there was free car parking available on site which was great.My only criticisms were the lack of shower in the ensuite bathroom. There was just a bath which we decided not to use.There were dirty towels and bed linen on the floor in our room when we arrived.Also, the hotel could do with a spruce up. The inside is very dark and the stairs are very narrow for people carrying heavy cases up.Apart from that, it suited our needs and I would recommend the hotel for other people wanting a short stay.Thank you.

The hotel is a 5-10 minute walk from restaurants (Thai, Italian, fast foods, etc) and shopping centers, train station and bus stops.

My wife and I stayed in a Double en-suite room.This was a bit on the small side but it was only for one night so wasn`t too bothered.Room was very warm, a bit noisy but it is on a main road so was expected.Only 10 min walk to the centre of Oxford.Plenty of choice for breakfast in the morning and everyone was quite friendly.If you are staying for business, I could not access the wifi properly anywhere in the hotel.

Great staff -
A most pleasant staff. More than willing to be helpful with managing the town. Perfect location . Close to the train, town, canal walk.And breakfast was made to order.

night in Oxford -
It was a lovely place to stay.The staff were very helpful and had a great sense of humour. The bedrooms were basic but great, very spacious. The only thing is there was no shower, only a bath. This was not convenient at all.Otherwise, for a basic hotel it was great. And very close to the center.

Very comfortable stay -
My room was comfortable and airy, and the hotel itself is a cute little place with plenty of character, in a very convenient location for the centre of Oxford.

Excellent stay -
We had an excellent stay at the Westgate hotel, we enjoyed the room, in a separate annex, very quiet. The breakfast was delicious and the staff very friendly.

Everybody at the hotel was so kind during our stay. Also it is pretty well located. It is clear for me that I will choose this hotel every time I need to stay at Oxford.

Happy Stay -
A friendly place to stay conveniently close to the Railway Station at a reasonable price for central Oxford.The owners and staff are all very friendly and helpful.The rooms are a bit dated in decor but they are well hated and clean with comfortable beds and a good bath with lots of hot water. Breakfast is excellent with the cooked breakfast freshly made to order.Owners are interested in their guests and most helpful, calling a taxi for me and checking it had arrived and knew where it had to take me.I would certainly recommend this Hotel to you.

Perfectly placed -
It is now the second time I have stayed here when visiting Oxford on business. Now- yes it is not a 5 star hotel, but what it offers is a great location, clean and comfortable rooms, a much better breakfast than the 4-5stars and the golden thing PARKING! The location is amazing, and yes for the city centre will come traffic noise, but what you don't get elsewhere is the parking with it, including the staff moving their cars so you can park. The rooms are cleaned daily and the beds are just like being a home. I wouldnt consistently come back unless it suited my needs.

Pleasnt stay in convenient location -
We had a nice stay in Westgate hotel. We felt welcome in the family athmosphere and were in need of using the iron before checking in which was no problem. The breakfast was also very good. Showers were separate from the bathroom, clean but it would have been nice to have one in our bathroom.Overall, a good value for money.

Like the parson's egg -
Boooked here as I had stayed here 11 years ago and it fitted the bill. Did not realise the basic double room without ensuite was in the next street. Not at all as nice as the main house. One nice bed, one shocker, (suggest you dump it) Shared shower needs attention. Rather mean supplies of tea and coffee. But everything that could be clean was. Certainly very well priced. The main house is lovely, garden is a delight, breakfast excellent and attended by a lovely, courteous gentleman. Recommended as a well priced clean comfortable B &B just don't recommend the annexe.

Next time I will stay here again -
The owner was nice and friendly, although me and my colleague arrived late in the evening due to the delay of our flight.The room (twin ensuite) was small, but clean, and the beds were comfortable. The breakfast was really well cooked, and I didn't feel hungry till late afternoon. The Wi-Fi signal could be stronger, however, and the street is noisy in the morning.

Clean, safe, excellent service and value -
This place is clean, safe, centrally located near buses and trains, service is courteous, place for good sleep, and great value.Check-in was prompt just provided my name and I was in the system, Annie the owner/manager gave me the key, explained the entry lock, and complimentary English breakfast hours. In 5 minutes I'm resting in my room from the long ride from Heathrow airport. I booked a single ensuite (meaning with toilet and shower);it was fresh, sparkling clean, and cozy. I brew up my cup of tea and watched BBC news, with the fresh breeze coming through the open window. Quiet and relaxing.The next morning, I had my English breakfast tended by Andrew the co-owner/manager, and cooked by Isabel. It was heavy but delicious:thick bacon, fried egg, sausage, fried tomato, toast, juices, coffee, croissant, and fruit cocktail. The breakfast room was warm, peaceful and conducive to an unhurried breakfast.Annie let me print out my boarding passes and lend me an alarm clock so I won't miss my flight home.I have a lovely four-day stay even in the gentle rain of Oxford.A sparrow and a dove sang every morning outside the window. A bonus.

weekend stay -
The location was ideal for us as we wanted to be near the station.The room was available at short notice after our original booking had been cancelled, and is reasonable price.It was comfortable, but we must have not read the website carefully, becasue we expected ensuite, but they aren't in the "annex"which is actually a separate house about two minutes walk round the corner.

Nice hotel for reasonable price -
The Westgate Hotel seems to be a good option for someone who needs good access to the railway station, to the center of Oxford, and for such recreational areas like Thames Path or Grandpont Nature Park.This time I lived in an single ensuite room in the annex, which gave me wonderful privacy but a little longer distance for a breakfast.The room was clean, neat and comfortable.

Reviewer:Creed H | Sat 26th May 2012 | 7 years ago
A basic but warm and comfortable hotel. Wonderfuly comfortable beds (I really should find out what mattress' they use) and plenty of fluffy pillows. Great town centre location and really easy to find as its less than a five minute walk from the train station. A really important thing for me was that they allowed my dog to stay with me. Our en suit bathroom was small and didnt have a shower but there was plenty of hot water for baths so it wasnt a problem and there was a shower room a couple of doors away if we wanted to use it.If you are looking for a basic, comfortable, affordable place to stay in Oxford, then this is the place. We would definatly stay here again.

Fully recommended! -
I booked the hotel online after looking at the room pictures they have on their website and on my arrival was pleasantly surprised that not only did it live up to my expectation, it was actually nicer. Linens were clean, the room was bright and airy, and it was spacious. The hotel was only about 5 mins walk from the station and the lady in the reception was very friendly. There was also complimentary tea and coffee in the room. The only drawback is that the bath doesn't have shower so it was a bit difficult to have a quick wash, but it wasn't somethingthat I'd complain about. They have a shared shower room if you really need it.Breakfast was also very good, the man who served us was attentive and nice. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay there and I will definitely come back and recommend the hotel to any of my friends who want to visit Oxford!

Good value -
Overall experience was definitely positive, very friendly and helpful owners in a good location for easy access to city centre and for the train station and Oxford tube. We were in the annex which had comfy beds,and was clean. Unfortunately the showers weren't working properly when when we arrived( and we had cycled from London) but they were sorted out and we were compensated appropriately.All the decor a bit dated but this didn't bother us in the slightest. We did enjoy the breakfast.We would stay here again as we feel it's good value for money with comfy beds in a convenient location. (3.5 out of 5) .

Two nights at the Westgate Hotel -
I had a good stay at the Westgate Hotel. It's actually more like a B&B. The couple who owns it are really nice and work very hard to serve you a wonderful breakfast in the mornings. The room was fine. Shower takes a long time to heat up, but is good afterwards. There is quite some noise from the busy road outside, but some earplugs fixed that. Very conveniently located right next to the train station. Their free wifi is fast, but only worked in the living room downstairs.
