As pointed out in other reviews, this is St Edmunds College (part of Oxford University) students' accommodation converted into a B&B over the summer. I stayed both in an en suite room and one without en suite facilities. There are only a limited number of rooms on each floor, so sharing a bathroom/toilet wasn't an issue for me, but if... More

I stayed at ISIS for four nights and overall, it was even better than I expected - the room was clean, the breakfast - traditional English breakfast - well served and tasty. WiFi access is free and available in all rooms. Location is convenient, rather close to the center, quiet place, bus stop just nearby. Highly recommended.

Stayed here because of a friends wedding which was nearby and it was a relatively good price. The room was clean and tidy and a decent size. The bed however was really hard and I prefer a softer bed to sleep well. Breakfast is included in the price and was good enough tho a little small ( I had a... More

Oxford is hugely expensive to stay, so at £45 for a single this was a bargain, and it included a top class full English breakfast. First come, first served free parking, spotless room with toiletries and very quiet. Town centre is about 10 minutes walk, late night shop two mins across from the nearby pub. Accom only open July-September. Just... More

We booked ahead and were pleased with everything from the map to get us there to the accommodation itself! Our room over-looked the rear and was on the first floor (no lift, just stairs). It was clean and exactly what we expected for the money ( a big double bed, a wardrobe, chests of drawers, tea & coffee making kit... More

The guest house positively surprised me during my stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and wide, which is rare in oxford... Breakfast was very good with a lot of choice. The only negative sides are: - The bathroom that even if clean was really small: the sink is similar to those you can find... More

If you are looking for a place in Oxford that is not expensive, but still gives you the service you might expect from a hotel that is charging double the price, then The Isis is just the place. We had a lovely time in Oxford and the accommodation so near to Oxford University just added to the whole experience.

We visited Oxford for my Niece's wedding on Saturday. We stayed at the Isis Guest House, Iffley Road, Oxford.Everything was fantastic. The breakfast was excellent, and the staff were really helpful. The hotel is really close to the town centre and has a private carpark. I will definitely return on my next visit to Oxford.

This property was a bit of a disappointment for us in Oxford. The town is so grand that we expected a bit more of the property. the outside appearance is good but the rooms were extremely basic. We had asked for a room with 3 single beds. We got a twin room with a pull out cot. There is no... More
