"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.

Dislikes:
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.

"Good central location with helpful friendly staff."
The room was clean but a little run down. The front entrance was untidy and needed a little bit of attention to make it friendly and appealing. There was a useful fridge but the mini milk cartons were out of date. A fresh pint of milk in the fridge would have been simple and welcoming. The cold water tap in the kitchen area did not work. Read less
Likes:
The location was good. There were good facilities in the room with Sky TV and WiFi. There were facilities to watch the Sports on the larger screen in the pub. Car parking available for every room.
Dislikes:
It would have been nice to have bedside lamps.
