"convenient location for oxford student parent"
2 nights , 3 people. the man who made the breakfast was great, but the breakfast ended very early in the morning, before anyone was ready for the day. the maid knocked on the door before 8 am, did not speak english and did not clean the room. minimal hot water for the shower.
extremely convenient location for us.
it worked out fine.
I would let American's know the problems with the maid and the hot water. I would consider staying again, but would look to see if I could another

Dislikes:
lack of hot water, maid, no breakfast after 9:15
Response from The Old Black Horse:
Apologies about the maid as she has only been with us for one week, as for the hot water we did have a problem with the boiler which has now been rectified and fixed.

No real ale for sale in the pub's bar. I had to walk up the road to another pub in the evening.
Response from The Old Black Horse:
We have tried guest ales in the past, and they have not been successful -hopefully we may try again, now going into the Summer months. Hopefully if we can gather a following we will be able to sustain it.
