My daughter had her 9th birthday party at the ice rink. The party was really well organised with lots of activities for the children to do on the ice as well as a private party room after. The host was very good and encouraged them to have the confidence to skate. All the children went away happy and I think... More

We went on a Saturday afternoon and the place was absolutley packed, we queued over an hour to get in (they only have one till open) then we had to queue up for 15 minutes to get our skates. They need to have a cap on numbers. It was very streaaful. When we finally go onto the ice rink a... More

I went the other day and it was very dirty, the staff were very rude. The skates were some out of last century. It was not cheap either. The river by it was nice. I would not recomend this place to anyone.

I had not been to the Oxford Ice Rink for a number of years and was very shocked how run down it has become. Its quite a shame because it used to be a very nice and friendly place. There was a very long wait to pay then another long wait to get the skates. The skates were very old... More

We first went yesterday, but after a 25min queue to pay nobody mentioned the next 25min queue to collect skating boots. We asked for a refund as after both queues we would only have half an hour on the ice before closing time, which for the best part of £30 was too steep. Our second try this morning was less... More

Visited for the first time to watch an ice show which was brilliant. Very good routines and talented ice skaters. However the venue is grotty, seats are very uncomfortable and they couldn't find our tickets that we pre paid for in their folder so just let us in. Long queue for a cup of tea and disorganised chaotic team working... More

Skated here morning noon and night as a teenager. Curiosity got the better of me during a recent trip to visit family in the Oxford area having moved away many years ago. Much the same as I remember it! Parking charges in the council run car park adjacent are daylight robbery - but that's Oxford for you! Looks like it's... More

As above, the private coaches are happy and helpful, can have a bit of fun going around, my girls love it, but it really is very dirty everywhere you look.

This rink is unusual in that it has a window to the outside . We didn't attend a public session but found the staff friendly and helpful and local coaches very approachable- Thanks- What was a shock was the cost of parking a car in the neighbouring car park (not part of the rink) so if you can take public...
