Our family stayed in March, and were delighted to find ourselves in heart of Oxford. One of us had a conference at the University, and the others went touring. All is in walking distance, and the Bodleian library is just around the corner. The staff could not have been more accomodating. There is a lovely breakfast every morning in a very pleasant dining room. There is also a comfortable living room/lounge where you can relax and enjoy drinks in the evening. We recommend you come here if you enjoy old, lovingly cared for premises, warm service, and lovely plantings. We were not at all bothered by late night students at the Turf, and enjoyed going there too.

My Family(4 of us) had the pleasure of staying four nights in Bath Place this past March to visit our son who was studying at Mansfield College. I highly recommend Bath Place to anyone staying in Oxford. The location is ideal for walking the City. Our room was very clean, and the breakfast offered by the Hotel was outstanding. The staff at the Hotel was most friendly and accommodating.

Who knew booking Oxford’s Bath Place hotel would give us street cred? An approving doctoral student on our bus from Heathrow walked us to the tiny cobbled lane entry when we asked directions. In September, our charming, slightly-slanted 17th century room looked down on the Turf Tavern--arguably Oxford’s oldest pub, and one of Morse’s favourites for real ale– filled with returning and new students, plus proud parents. (Handy for a quick bit on arrival.) Great insider tips from front desk staff and guest info booklet: Oxford’s best coffee (The Missing Bean on Turl) and which walking tour to book on nearby Broad Street (Footprints’ 2 hour Free Walking Tour with students as guides). Bath Place couldn’t be more central—or more welcoming. Tip: earplugs do the job when late drinkers at the Turf spill outside onto picnic benches, pints in hand, as Bill Clinton famously did.

Room Tip: If you have mobility problems with stairs, mention when booking.

As seen from the reviews this is not a 'standard chain hotel' experience. The building itself is uniquely quaint and of its era and hence its character. We had no issue with the standards as it is clean and modernised with all the necessary facilities. The charm is really in its individuality and location to the city centre and the personalised attention given to its guests. Staff are helpful and take time to provide an insight to the building itself and the locality - we found Yvonne especially helpful and personable.
Don't expect a Marriott or Premier approach - rather a much more memorable and personalised experience.

Room Tip: Check rooms for your specific requirements - access etc.

I visited Oxford as a solo weekend after traveling for business. The Bath Place Hotel is seriously adorable. I love another reviewer's description of it feeling like visiting your grandparent's home. I stayed in the room with the wood beamed ceiling and it was perfect for a single girl. If you had 2 large suitcases (checked baggage size), it would definitely be cramped. The bed was insanely comfortable, and the duvet/blanket combo was perfect.

Breakfast was great; the warm baked bread with some cheese was the perfect start to the day.

The only negative feedback I have is that new firm pillows and some fresh accent pillows would eliminate the slight "shabby" feeling that the room had.

Something to be aware of for weekend stays is that The Turf (pub) has an entrance adjacent to the hotel, so you can hear some bar traffic coming in and out. It did not bother me at all (popped in some earplugs on Friday night), but good to know if you want/need total silence. They may have a room that doesn't face the pub.
