"Convenient location for central Oxford"
The Pub is located just over the Bridge from Magdalen and just ten minutes' walk from Broad St. My room was small but quiet. There is a side-entrance from the car-park for guests. Given the exorbitant Prices one is faced with when visiting Oxford, the Black Horse is worth a try. One should not be put off by the garish blue flickering lights in the front garden. Read less
Likes:
Quiet, no bother, handy for the town centre. There are numerous Pubs and Restaurants on St Clement's and the Headington Rd.

"Great location, friendly hosts, bags of character."
You pay a premium for everything in Oxford and this hotel was no different. However the genuine friendly nature of the staff and the ideal location more than compensated. You are staying above a pub so expect some noise during the weekends. Read less
Likes:
The friendliness of the staff, the superb location and the character of the building. I have lived in Oxford and stayed in various hotels and b&bs when returning to visit. This has been the best.
Dislikes:
The room was tiny (no surprise it being expensive Oxford) and it had a little damp, probably due to guests not caring enough to open the window after taking a shower I suspect.

"Fair enough."
Stayed for a night in order to see the local university later in the week. Although room had deficiencies seen in other reviews, such as a bumpy floor and a low headroom, these qualities did not affect me much if at all. Bathroom was excellent, as was the bed. Carpet was a little iffy but I was wearing slippers--it didn't matter to me. Read less
Likes:
The room allocated to me was generous enough in terms of space. Staff was extremely friendly--I especially appreciate the proprietor for receiving packages meant for me beforehand.
Dislikes:
None
Response from The Old Black Horse:
Many thank for your comments. Carpets are due to be replaced this Christmas.

There was no coffee in the room. The pub was noisy and carried on serving drinks through the night. Breakfast was awful and the tables were so dirty the cutlery stuck to them.
