Perfect Weekend Stay
My wife and I stayed here for her birthday for two nights. The location was superb. It took no more than 25 mins to walk into the city centre and if you use the local bike shares it was even less. We used Mobike and it’s a fantastic idea and way to get around the city.

The hotel was extremely clean and the staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Great local knowledge. The room was smaller than a Premier Inn/Travelodge type place as this was a converted house, but it had a lovely homely feel, and plenty big enough for a weekend. Nice to have somewhere to park the car too, safe and secure. Taxi was about £5-8 depending on the time of day.

Overall, we had a great weekend and great value for money.

Free parking is an added bonus in Oxford, well placed for both the city recentre by bus and places outside of Oxford via the ring road

Breakfast was a huge choice of serve yourself with freshly cooked delicious options, filter coffee was a bonus too

The host was a congenial, helpful man. The site was clean and comfortable. An amazing, made- to- order breakfast is included. For example, one option is the English bacon, sausage, toast, and beans.A fifteen minute walk brings you to the heart of Oxford. It is on a bus line that goes to downtown Oxford or to Wallingford, a charming village on the Thames. This is where the "Midsommer Murder" series was filmed.

Great Value And Location
Whilst hunting for somewhere to stay in Oxford for two couples spending the day perusing the city and planning for a theatre event in the evening we soon discovered that staying anywhere in the city centre would be very expensive.

The Balkan Lodge Hotel was the perfect alternative, a little way out of the city but easily accessible via a short bus ride or taxi journey. Better still, the hotel is just down the road from the River Towpath which presents you with a glorious walk into town (about 25-30 minutes) I would recommend this option, it really made our day.

The hotel itself was ideal for our needs for one night, plenty of parking, pretty well kept gardens front and back, small but clean and smart rooms, lovely breakfast and most important: friendly, helpful people! Great choice!

Fantastic Bank Holiday Stay At The Balkan In Oxford
The Balkan was an excellent place to stay; the own, who has had the hotel for twenty-two years, was extremely friendly and helpful from the moment we arrived to when we departed. The rooms were a good size, shower was good and the breakfast was fantastic. It only took us half an hour to walk in to the centre of the city along the picturesque path next to the Thames. Cannot recommend the hotel highly enough and it was very good value as we stayed over the May bank holiday so book early!! Will definitely go back to the Balkan hotel when we return to the area again. P.S. As we were walking around Oxford we did not see many hotels at all in the centre

Tired Hotel But Decent Value
I booked the 4 poster room for my girlfiends birthday as we'd never stayed in a 4 poster before. The hotel itself could do with updating it's decor but the staff were friendly and the room was clean. The 4 poster bed itself was great and would cost a lot more to stay in one in most places, the hotel is close enough that you can walk into the centre without too much hassle or taxi's aren't that expensive either, there was a bit of traffic noise at night as you really had to leave the window open during the night as there was no A/C and it was a hot summers evening. Breakfast was ok with a decent choice of hot foods alongside the usual cereals etc, though the quality of the ingredients (bacon/sausage etc) left a little to be desired. Overall a pleasant stay, though I'm not sure I'd bother with a normal room here the 4 poster is well worth booking if you want to experience one!

Very Pleasant Stay
I honestly enjoyed my stay. The room was clean and quiet. The staff was very polite and helpful. If I had more comfortable shoes with me I would enjoy walking to the city centre instead of taking the bus. In case I have to visit Oxford again in the future, I will definitely choose this hotel.
