"A proper pub, Just the job."
Just stayed the one night for a gig in Oxford. Read less
Likes:
I liked the very informal way the pub is run. There is nothing fancy, what you see is what you get. So often places like this have been "modernised" to look like "Ye Olde Worlde Tavern"
Dislikes:
The pub has a car park that you are not charged for. Unlike some other places in the vicinity that will remain nameless, Mercure Eastgate! oops!

"Room was nice, common area - specifically the hallway - is a real turn-off"
Stayed in Room 8, which seems to be the most inaccessible room in the building. The room itself was perfectly nice and I quite enjoyed it. But when the proprietor told me, upon arrival, that I would have to bend down to get to the room, it was rather an understatement. I'm 6 ft tall, not unusually tall for a man. The hallway and staircase to get to the entrance to room 8 could be characterized as having a low ceiling even for a hobbit. Need to tell people in advance when booking. Read less
Likes:
Nice room, convenient location.
Dislikes:
I would not book there again if only Room 8 were available. It's simply too uncomfortable and ridiculous to expect adults, paying a hefty price for the accommodation, to virtually crawl to their room.
Response from The Old Black Horse:
Apologies that you found difficulty in getting to the room, if you had mentioned this when you had checked in we could have easily arranged an alternative room for you, as I remember you checked in quite early on the day and other guests were still to check in - if you had mentioned to us you were having problems accessing the room and this was causing you distress it would not have been a problem to re-accomodate you
Room 8 is part of the building which was added much later on, hence the access

"Location (with car park) excellent, everything else just OK"
We had a pleasant enough stay on a very hot July weekend. The location is excellent and the car park is a real positive (many Oxford hotels don't have car parking, those that do are expensive or distant from the city centre).

This is a pub with rooms rather than a hotel really. Our room was newly refurbished with a very good shower. Staff were friendly but there weren't many of them. The wifi was poor, as was the breakfast. The main road outside is noisy, which may be a problem for some peopl Read less
Likes:
Excellent location.
Car Park.
Newly decorated room with great shower.
Friendly staff.
Dislikes:
Location near a noisy road (I appreciate they can't help this).
Poor wifi.
Had to ask for milk in the room.
Evidence of cost-cutting - cheap poor quality breakfast, no biscuits or decaf coffee in r

"Convenient location; bedroom recently refurbished"
We were attending a weekend conference in Oxford and needed accommodation nearby with parking. Read less
Likes:
Venue was only a short walk to the conference. Free parking was available. Room had recently been refurbished. All staff (reception, breaksfast and cleaner) were friendly. Free Wi-fi available.
Dislikes:
Pub itself is not attractive (needs refurbishing) though separate entrance at rear for bedrooms. Traffic noise from the early hours of the morning. Limited choice of cereals/fruit juice at breakfast.

Likes:
Hotel very well situated close to city centre and very close to several decent restaurants. King size bed was very comfortable, nice to have free wifi, and lovely bathroom that looked almost brand new
Dislikes:
Because the window opened on to the main road it was quite noisy with the window open.

"Nice room, great ambiance but poor breakfast."
We stayed only for one night to visit Oxford. Read less
Likes:
The room was high standard,tidy, modern. Our windows were located on the back of the house, therefore it was very quiet. But the house is next to a main street, so it might be louder at the other side
Dislikes:
The breakfast was very disappointing. The cooked breakfast was good, but the cereals were old, the fruit were scruffy and the jam was mouldy...

I love staying at an Inn , the old fashioned style of the building and it being close to high Street
Dislikes:
Online booking for single room was not possible , I had to book the double/ twin room for ninetyfive pounds while at the Inn I should have had had to pay eighty for a single occupancy That is not fair

Overall rating: 3.4 out of 5
 We stayed for 2 nights. Our recently refurbished room was comfortable, but a little noisy as over the bar, but we knew that would be a risk. Very friendly staff. Breakfast was tasty and good portion size. An easy 15 minute walk into central Oxford, and great for the O2 Academy. Parking available behind the pub.
