After reading some of the reviews on here I was a bit unsure what to expect but have just returned from a weekend at The Buttery & have nothing but good things to report. Yes there are stairs to walk up & yes they can only serve one type of egg for breakfast but this all adds to the charm... More

Lack of Parking was very time consuming to get to a park and ride. Location great. Queen bed was the pull out couch with super thin mattress and springs to sleep on. Sigle beds were good. Secondfloor Room on Broad street was very noisy until early morning hours on a Thursday. Breakfast was not great.

We have stayed at the Buttery before and will do so again. The location and value cannot be beaten in Oxford. The staff are friendly and our large double room was lovely and cosy. Only two disappointments - we found the wifi very weak and the (infamous?) scrambled eggs were a shocker to face in the morning. But neither of... More

We cannot believe the amount of times the eggs are mentioned in our reviews. It has become a slight obsession with us now. I have asked for the three different breakfast chefs to cook me scrambled eggs this week and they have all been genuinely fine and nice to eat on buttered toast. However we are clearly not keeping them... More

I booked two nights at The Buttery before reading reviews on TripAdvisor so felt a little apprehensive on going down for breakfast. I need not have worried. I had the English breakfast which was excellent and I had no problems at all with the scrambled eggs which were fine,bacon crisp and flavoursome, sausage,beans,mushroom and tomato. My only qualm with it... More

We have just returned from spending a very pleasant Saturday night right at the top of this hotel in a room we requested away from the front and nice and quiet. Had a great night's sleep and the location is superb! The guest house lets itself down with the breakfast especially considering that this is a cafe during the day.... More

The Buttery Hotel is a small, but superbly placed hotel. I stayed here with my husband for New Year and we found that the accommodation was comfortable but not exceptional. Our room (described as a superior accommodation on our booking web site) was small with a very dated décor and a small on-suite. The room was clean enough but we... More

The Buttery Hotel is a B&B located in the center of Oxford on Broad Street, about two blocks north of "High" Street. Thus, you can reach any school or place in Oxford shortly while walking from it. It is directly across from the oldest college at Oxford, Balliol College, and easy to find if you take the bus from London,... More

Comfortable & clean accommodation and very centrally located. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only downside was the breakfast - it was cold & disappointing. There are other breakfast options around that would be a better bet.

Stayed at the buttery in the last week of Dec. The rooms were surprisingly large and quite comfortable. The location could not be better with everything in Oxford just a few steps away. We did have some issues with the heating in our room, so they had to give us a free standing heater which was pretty bright when switched... More

I have to stay in Oxford quite often with work but this occasion was very last minute and my options were limited so i stayed here. The welcome was very friendly. The room was surprisingly big, and whilst basic was fine, particularly given the cost of the room in a very central Oxford location. I was worried about noise and... More
