Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sugaraunty good location even though it is on a roundabout
We choose this hotel as we wanted to be near Oxford and we didn't want the hassle of finding parking etc within the town. It was a pleasant surprise as the location was quiet although it is on a roundabout, Parking was good, staff were all very pleasant and the hotel has a pool too which in the hot weather is very welcome.
We had dinner in the hotel and Juan was very nice and went out of his way to welcome you and make you comfortable. The food was good and we all thoroughly enjoyed it and that is unusual for my daughter as she usually has to find fault with something. There is a little waitrose nearby which is handy for the newspapers and bits and bobs needed for a day out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by how108 Highly recommended if you had a long flight and traveling north
We felt truly welcomed, from the front desk making sure we had a good 'upgraded' room #we are gold member#, to helping us to make reservation for dinner, and a free Starbuck coffee just before we left. Sleep is good, and would help if the pillow is firmer that we are used to. Location is also very easy to take to Oxford city center, and getting into motorway the next day.
We would recommend a short stopover, or if you want to visit Oxford.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SS08 Internet
The primary reason I choose to use Holiday Inn was for the Internet service. I was there on Business and it was important that I had access to Internet. I was told this would be free since I was a member. However, the free service was less than adequate. I could only connect 2 devices and then it locked me out for anything additional. I had a phone, a tablet and a laptop. And if my wife and daughter was there, it would be another 4 devices.
I had to spend my time troubleshooting the issue with the staff. Once I was connected again the bandwidth was not sufficient. This forced me to stay at the office for extended periods since I could not work from my room. I realize that I could have upgraded my connection, but the rates were ridiculous and was not in my budget.
I am not sure I will be returning as there are more better options available in that area.
