the location was ideal, and the staff was super friendly and helpful! nice to have a pub below the rooms, and the breakfasts were wonderful.
Dislikes:
got a little bit noisy at night, but that is to be expected given its location.

"Monday night stay for 2- good location but overall disappointing and VERY expensive for what it was."
We chose the Old Black Horse as we were meeting a relative in central Oxford, for an evening meal and because it had parking onsite. I was relieved that we were staying as a couple as I would not have been comfortable there on my own. Read less
Likes:
The room and ensuite were refurbished and clean and comfortable, with a hair-dryer. I was expecting it to be very noisy but it wasn't and we slept well.The breakfast bacon was thick-cut and delicious.
Dislikes:
The central bathroom light didn't come. The milk on the hospitality tray was 'best before' and smelled 'off.' The customers in the bar were 'rough and ready'. The ceilings were VERY low.

"A very charming place"
If by "4 stars" you are looking for a luxury hotel with a spa, forget it. The Old Black Horse is small, the floors are uneven, it's above a pub, and your room will not have a mini bar. On the other hand, if you're looking for a picturesque and cosy place to spend the night and, eventually, get some work done (there is a table provided near the window!), then this is the place for you. The old building is charming and welcoming, and so is its staff! Read less
Likes:
The place and the staff are great. On the first night, I needed an extra blanket (I'm from a hot country!) which they gave me and, I suspect, they've also turned the central heating on for me.
Dislikes:
I left very early, so it was difficult to figure out how to return the key. Maybe a key-box for leaving guest would be useful!
Response from The Old Black Horse:
Many thanks for your comments, we are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward in welcoming you back in the future.Thanks for your comments.

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!
