"Character stay"
This is a great pub to stay at. My room was recently renovated and very clean. I was in the attic (which I found really charming) - but just needed to be careful of my head. There was a bit of road noise - but with ear plugs I had great night sleeps. The staff aren't professional - more like family - but that is part of the charm. Great location of the edge of Oxford city. I hired a bike for my ten days which made getting around easy. This an old pub - so full of character but not all mode cons. Read less

"Convenient but Shabby"
I stayed two nights whilst attending a wedding. The Black Horse Inn sadly is very shabby and although an attempt had been made to update the single room I had it was in a sorry state. The ensuite showed signs of mould, towel rail off the wall and fixings still in place. Read less
Likes:
Bed very comfortable,Bedding, towels very clean
En suite facilities ok, good hot water supply
Location and free car park is the main selling point
Dislikes:
Staff good, I didn't have breakfast (although included in the price) because of other arrangements.They should NOT rely on the location being the sole requirement they need to deliver rooms
Response from The Old Black Horse:
Apologies that you had the single room, as this was the last room to be updated. All rooms had been or at te time of your stay apart from ths one.

"Superb location, great breakfast, spotlessly clean rooms."
Myself and a friend stayed for a 2 night break at The Old Black Horse. Having read previous reviews,our expectations were very low.
However, what a wonderful surprise. The staff were extremely friendly and expecting us. The room was spotlessly clean with all the facilities we required.
The room was cleaned and the towels changed daily. For Breakfast there was a good choice, with juice and coffee topped up constantly.
Would stay here again. Read less
Likes:
The location was superb, with the centre of Oxford in easy walking distance.
Free Parking in a good sized car park and very friendly helpful staff.
Dislikes:
Other Reviewers complained about a noisy road. It was a very busy road. This however did not spoil our stay in the slightest
Response from The Old Black Horse:
Many thanx for your kind words, we have not had the best of reviews previously. We have spent a lot of time evaluating recent negative reviews and in turn spent a lot of time, and investments, in addressing past issues. Hopefully the results of a strenuous and extremely busy 12 months are now beginning to show. We have work booked in towards the end of July to address the issue of noise and are hoping that the addition of secondary glazing will solve this minor issue. Comments R much appreciated

"OK room, good location, more shabby than photos suggest"
I needed somewhere close to the centre of town, to sleep and get ready. I was out all day and in the evenings. This hotel largely served this need - the location was the best thing. The room was fine (rooms attached to a pub) but not quite the impression I'd had from the online photos. You pay for location, and the fact that Oxford accommodation is expensive. Read less
Likes:
Good location - very close to Oxford town centre.
My room felt quite self-contained and I could come and go as I pleased.
Room/ bathroom were clean (though some smelly drains nearby).
Dislikes:
My room faced onto the road and it was quite loud during night (traffic, people). Also, the curtain was really thin and there was a strong streetlight on all night. Room bit shabby, for the price.
