There was a distinct lack of personal service from the staff, none of whom seem to have an adequate command of English didn't show any concern whatever for my welfare. When I arrived, nobody answered the front door and I had to phone them to be let in - only to be told they were not expecting me. Eventually, after... More

Entrance and parking area inadequately lit. Reception unwelcoming. At 10pm told to turn off TV and leave sitting room! Although breakfast room, en suite and bed linen clean general ambience requires freshening to avoid current impression of neglect. Breakfast very good - chef/ waitress very friendly and helpful. Ideally situated for JR Hospital and buses into Oxford hence inflated cost.

Noisy plumbing, dark rooms, broken windows, cold on arrival, water pressure in the shower a trickle, whole room smelling strongly of bleach, thin walls, hairdryer not working and surly unfriendly staff. Went down for breakfast at 7.30 as this was when it was supposed to be served and there was no one there!!Oh and a power cut! For this I... More

Stayed there for 1 night in a double room. Not cheap, but comparable in price to other guest houses in this area. The interior and exterior decor is looking a little tired but free off-street parking facilities and a good breakfast provided. The bed was not that comfortable and could have done with a better mattress. The settee was on... More

I was there for one night because of an interview. I didn't pay the bill so I don't know how much expansive is, but I had a great experience. The breakfast was over the top!!! The place is clean and nice. Very near by the bus stop to reach the London's airports.

pickwicks guest house is at Headington, which is 10 mins by bus from Oxford. We like the clean room and also place to park there. Location wise it is not in the city center, but there are a few buses coming at regular intervals, so we left our car at the guesthouse and took the bus which was much more... More

We stayed here for one night on a Saturday. The prices were quite high for a guest house but Oxford is very pricey in general to stay. When enquiring on the phone the staff were very polite and friendly which is what led me to book a room at this guest house. Customer service is so important to me generally... More
