Didn't stay in the hotel but work just down from the hotel. The breakfast cafe is a bit dingey but the food is really good and well priced. Good quality produce with the sausages and bacon, eggs tasted good but mine unfortunately was over cooked (didn't have time to send it back as on tight schedule) fried bread was possibly...

I have never stayed in this hotel - I just live down the road from the Westgate Hotel but I regularly go there for the really excellent breakfasts it serves up, seven days a week. Not only are the breakfasts really good, but the staff are very friendly And there's another bonus to the Westgate - it runs the corner...

The only good thing about this hotel (if you can call it that) was the two elderly owners. They were lovely and cooked a simple but nice breakfast. The photos online look a lot better than real life (photo shop) and the place is very run down, smelled of smoke and wasn't very clean. We were in a house down...

OK, so this place is basic, I knew we were getting a shared bathroom. Bedroom was fairly small, clean bedding, but signs that parts of carpet had not been vacuumed in a long time, loose floorboards meant that the floor was noisy when walking over. £70 a night, I did expect a bit better Breakfast was good though there was...

I came to Oxford for a night out for a friends birthday. Conveniently the hotel was just over the bridge from the station and a 3 minute walk from central Oxford. Hotel was reasonable prices, nothing too fancy but was exactly what I needed. The best part was the fry up breakfast in the morning - hangover cure! Already have...

We stayed at the Westgate for 2 nights, rooms were clean, tv worked, bathroom was clean and modern. Breakfast was great and the host was bubbly and inviting. We would stay here again if we came back to Oxford.

It was a really nice hotel, not too expensive with a really nice and devoted staff! I would definitely go there again!! So if you plan on going to Oxford but don't want to spend a fortune, this hotel is what you're looking for. My cousin and I were staying there while looking for a flat, they were very helpful.

Extremely helpful and obliging staff. The hotel is very clean and tidy. It is only a two second walk from the railway station so very convenient. I would highly recommend. I was very pleasantly surprised at how friendly and accommodating they were - more places should be like this.

Extremely dated, unloved, bits falling off everywhere, dodgy electrics, very unclean feel about the place, dirt and deceased flies on the windowcills next to our breakfast table, yuk! Paid £60 of my hard earned pounds for the privilege. I was robbed! :(

Our brief fortnight holiday in Great Britain included two nights in Oxford, and that magnificent visit meant wonderful overnighting at the worthy Westgate Hotel. It was not my first choice, but the pleasant surprise at its quality means that from now on, I'll check it first for availability whenever returning. It looks a bit dowdy on the outside, but once...
