A hotel which provided a clean room and an acceptable breakfast both for meat eaters and vegetarians. Staff were efficient. Only request we made was for a 3rd mug for the room as only 2 provided. tea, coffee etc plentiful.

This place is a dive, I would forgive a multitude were the staff friendly, try grumpy and rude for your money!!! I was put in a pokey, over-heated room in a woefully uncomfortable bed. Cheap pine furniture ala late 1980s everywhere the towels are actually funny (grey, paper weight).

If you ever wish to go to Oxford, I'd greatly advise you not to even consider this guest house. The staffs were rude, imprudent, annoying, insulting and unmannerly people. They shouted at us, kicked us out of our room and said that they won't clean it if we do not get out now. They knocked loudly and they scolded us... More

Compared with the other guest houses nearby, Pickwicks is average. Comfortable enough but not the same quality as others. Recently under new ownership and the place feels a little different to what I previously remember. Service level was good.

After reading some of the awful reviews left for this place we were bracing ourselves for the worst. This place has either had a good refurbishment or people just have extremely high standards for a guesthouse. We stayed in a room on the ground floor which accommodated up to 4 people- it was clean, comfortable, nicely furnished and all the... More

I have stayed here more than once. This is quite a basic B&B compared with others nearby, but it is also the cheapest. Staff are friendly and the breakfast as good as the more expensive establishments in this part of Oxford, which is convenient for the Radcliffe Hospital and Brookes University. Decor is a bit tatty and the plumbing a... More

I have stayed in some hovels in my time but this place wins hands down as the worst b&b ever! Shabby, dirty, smelly, and with rude staff to boot! The place is owned by Chinese people whose only interest is in making a profit. I was greeted at reception by someone who barely spoke English and who demanded payment before... More

This must have been my fifth stay here in as many years. It’s conveniently located for my purpose of visiting Headington and it’s on the direct bus route from the train station. I received a warm welcome, no fuss, shown to my single ensuite room on the first floor. It’s just large enough, and the ensuite is raised up one... More
