What our Guests have to say....

Iain - June 2012

A trot from the City, but worth every Step!

Warm friendly service, a good quality Full English breakfast.

Madden - June 2012

"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.

“Excellent Value for the Price. Centrally Located.”

I rarely review hotels, so please trust this one. Some reviews of the Old Black Horse Inn have been harshly critical of small rooms and uncomfortable beds. Pay them no heed. They must all be from spoiled US tourists who don't understand the challenge of finding affordable accommodations close to the heart of Oxford. The Black Horse is right in the center of things. Of course the rooms are small. It was built in the 1600s! But I couldn't have been happier with my small room, given the price and the location. Think of it as "quaint." Moreover, the staff were wonderful. My flight was delayed, leading to an arrival in Oxford at 1:30 am! The staff happily give me the security code for the back door and instructions on where to find my room key. Upon arrival I even found a handwritten note with the wifi code and breakfast times. I would strongly recommend the Old Black Horse to any Oxford visitor wanting a close-in location at a fair price.

Old fashioned hospitality at The Old Black Horse


We had to book an inexpensive hotel for mayday in a hurry, and were expecting the usual, clinical everything looks the same place to just sleep. I wasn't even going to bother with breakfast. Instead we had a smashing pub, full of character, really quirky and comfy bedroom, an opportunity to watch the Manchester Derby inside (or outside if you wanted to smoke, very thoughtful and inclusive) of the pub. Added to this, very friendly and hardworking staff and a delicious breakfast. I have already recommended The Old Black Horse to a colleague!
