Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sparky-OZ Comfortable room, smelled of paint
Pleasant room and hotel was conveniently located. Only downside is that it must have been recently painted and the smell was quite strong.
I cannot understand why the hotel did not award points for this room (I also booked a twin room for 3 nights, this double room was deemed to be an "overlapping stay" for which no points were earned). Pretty lousy rules. It is also difficult to see the breakdown of the points awarded on my recent statement, so no way of checking if all is correct - I was meant to receive a bonus 500 points as set out in a letter from the hotel, but lack of transparency in membership statement makes this all but impossible to check. These are relatively minor gripes which I would have set out in an email directly to IHG had I been able to find a contact email address on the web-site (please take this as a recommendation to include customer service contact details).

A great location for an overnight stay just before Christmas. Welcoming receptionist. Efficient lift to 6 floor room. Very quiet and comfortable.
Couldn't fault it. Would recommend and hope to return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by julie2910 excellent hotel staff but.....
wonderful hotel, clean and fresh. staff were brilliant, particularly the restaurant staff. Room was clean but bathroom needed some repair, flaking paint around door and bath panel was loose. Also we were woken at 6.50 each morning to the sound of vibrating pipes in the bathroom, beware room 193 and any nearby! oh yes and air con didnt work!!!

I cannot recommend this hotel and it's staff enough! They accomodated our family of 5 and made sure that everything was ready and set up for when we arrived. All the staff were friendly, polite and extremely helpful. Breakfast the next morning was a feast of fresh food then never seem to run out. We are looking forward to visiting them again soon!

This was our first experience of the Holiday Inn Oxford Street. A small hiccup on arrival as there was a delay with the cleaning and a maintenance problem which delayed access to our room after many hours travelling not what you want to hear, however after 30 mins the helpful reception staff found another room for us...
The hotel is a great location and of a very good standard, the bar area is small, the bar person didn't understand our request for a "port".. Don't let this put you off.. Highly Recommended and we intend to stay again in 2014.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TopAussieFella Another tay at the Holiday Inn Oxford Circus
Well, another great stay at the Holiday Inn t Oxford Circus Hotel; GREAT location (just off Oxford Street) in the fabulous W1 area of town, Really friendly & helpful staff who made check-in (to the Priority Member Level room) a very smooth quick & pleasant experience.
The ONLY downside was the Managers form over breakfast; in the past, being Platinum IHG members, when our rooms have been upgraded (to a Priority Member Level room), the breakfast was included (Including previously at this hotel on the same type of booking). On his occasion, the Manager kept repeating over & over it was not included (& was not listening to us) & wanted £10 each from us for Breakfast!
Sad that he preferred to argue for so long over £20 & upset 2 long-time Priority Club Platinum members but,, I guess, some people love looking at the small picture (saving pennies on the breakfast) while ignoring the Big Picture (that there are plenty of other chains out there, eg Best Western, Crowne Plaza, etc who do reward their VERY LOYAL customers consistently, regularly & appropriately for regular UK & global travel). This was after good recent experiences at Holiday Inns at Rugby/Northampton & Bloomsbury within the past month...
Overall, another good stay but a bit of a bad taste left in the mouth by the actions of the duty manager on the Thursday morning...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Honeypots Very enjoyable stay
Stayed in Holiday Inn Welbeck Street 5-8th December 2013. We all had a very enjoyable stay. Location excellent, room was comfortable, staff very helpful and friendly, breakfast delish. On a small negative note, bedrooms slightly tired looking and Breakfast room was a bit on the small side to accommodate the guests. In saying that, we didn't have to wait too long for a table! Overall excellent stay and would definitely go back.

After a night on the town the Holiday Inn Oxford Circus was a haven. The staff and the service was excellent even late at night , I have nothing but praise for everyone involved in making our stay memorable.

Hotel was in a great location for shopping & going out for dinner. Slightly disappointed at the cost & quality of the fixtures & fittings, there are a number of newer & more modern hotels for the same rate.

We had two rooms on the same floor - no problems with one room but there was a strong smell of smoking in the other - not sure if this was because of a previous occupant or if someone was smoking in a nearby room ... why put ashtrays in non smoking rooms?
Hotel location is excellent for shopping (Oxford Street) and not too far from the tube

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Grethe Great service
The staff at the front desk was very nice and helpful.
The things we really were surprised over, was the lack of little things in the bathroom, for instance a shower cap and some lotion. We are used to stay at Holiday Inn in Florida, where they always supply this. So we did not bring them with us.
We also think the nightly rate was kind of high, we got a very nice big room on the second floor, but outside the window was a huge machinery of some kind (perhaps the neighbors ac?) which made a huge noice both night and day.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 Good hotel for a business traveler
I had no complaints with the hotel. It was located very well for my business and had plenty of places you could walk to. The room was clean and comfortable. My room wasn't very large, but I think it was typical of a hotel in London. Overall, I was very satisfied with my experience and I would stay at the hotel again.

Had a fantastic 2 nights in London and what made it better was the location of this hotel. In a quiet street but only a moments stroll to the hustle and bustle of Regent Street. Great staff and excellent service.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Meanwood Good location
The hotel being centrally located was the best thing, especially since all major shops are just a stone throw away, and one does not have to worry about late night transportation . Unfortunately, the staff do not seem to understand the hospitality industry. If you are looking for a clean bed, no frills attached ,it is sufficient.

Right behind Debenham's department store just off Oxford Street so really central. This was the main reason for choosing this hotel.
Staff were friendly.
Can't comment on food or drink as central London is on your door step.
The hotel itself is OK - the room was small and is in need of a refurb I stay within the IHG brand every week and this hotel is one of the older style Holiday Inn's - but paid using Priority Points so can't complain.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 fantastic location
this holiday inn has the best location, right off of oxford st., behind debenhams department store. the staff was friendly and helpful.
the room had a bathtub which was an added bonus.
the only negatives were that the a/c unit in our room was a old and a bit noisy, the third bed was more of a cot and not very comfortable, and the room is a bit small. we had asked for a non-smoking room, which we received, but unfortunately, other guests were smoking in their rooms, or in the lobby, and we could smell the smoke that would drift into our room.
but if you book ahead, with a non-refundable room rate, the price is right.

The price is reasonable for the location! Clean room with everything you need. Friendly staff and a great nights sleep. Only complaint is that the room could do with a little upgrade but for the price and location I can't really complain.

This hotel is extremely central and although I had a room overlooking the front of the hotel, I got a good night's sleep so it wasn't too noisy.
The staff were always very friendly and helpful, going out of their way to help you.
Hotel is a bit more expensive than other Holiday Inn hotels we have stayed at but I guess that is because of the location

The staff are friendly and helpful, the room clean although quite basic. The location is what inflates the price of this hotel which is somewhat scruffy. Breakfast is good although there is a limited range of foods available and no gluten free options.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GayDave Just What Was Needed
I approached the reception desk knowing that I could not be checked in and assured the duty personnel that I only sought to drop my bags with them until a room could be made available. Minutes later, I was in my room, having been permitted to check in over 3 hours early and having had a very nice chat with the lady on duty who thanked me for being a Priority Club member and gave me a room upgrade. I had taken the lift to my room in the company of a young guy who was something like a concierge/bell boy and he had engaged me in friendly chat and wished me well on my stay.
The welcome had been above expectations.
I knew the location and had chosen it specifically of its central position that was ideally suited for the best shopping and leisure in London.
The room was great. Very clean, comfortable and just what I needed.
Throughout my stay, the staff were friendly and helpful. One can often find hotels that are well appointed, but are functional, cold. My stay at the Holiday Inn Oxford Circus presented me with an hotel that was both well appointed AND friendly.....right to the end, when the concierge/bell boy helped me get a cab and load my things.
Thanks. A great stay.

Wow, i was so impressed with this Holiday inn stay.
Staff were not only extremley helpful but were also prepared and organised.
My room even got upgraded with all the little extras that usually get added to upgraded rooms only. (Why can't other IHG or Holiday inn do this?)
