Good stay! Very nice and friendly staff. Straight forward room with nice tv and shower facilities. Was here on a trip to the libraries at the uni for my dissertation and it's done the job. Summertown is nice - nice bars and shops - enough amenities to suffice! Would recommend!

This is the worst place in ever stayed. Smells disgusting, it's dirty, pubes in the bathroom shower topped with corrugated plastic, wallpaper stopping off the walls. I went to complain and was told that I could just leave, everywhere else in Oxford was full and this wasn't an option as I had a wedding recurs so to get to. I... More

If all you need is a place to sleep this place is ok. Located near a bus stop and local shops in Summertown this rather shabby looking guest house is a 10 minute bus drive from Oxford city centre. The family room we booked was small, but clean. Hardly any room for suitcases, and not a place to relax after... More

Adams guest house was in a good location to see Oxford with free parking and cheap parking for the day once we checked out. The shower did not work properly and the breakfast was very small in serving size.

On a positive side, they offered inclusive carpark and breakfast. It is not a 15 minute walk to the centre of town. It is however near a bus stop. Wifi worked for us. It is dated, it is not welcoming and chatty. It is a business selling rooms. We got a quad for the family and it served its purpose.... More

Being a coach driver I get to stay in some horrible places. This in my 9 years in the industry is by far the worst accommodation I have had the misfortune to have to endure the nights ahead!!! Dirty, Dirty, Dirty!!! Horrible place. Myself and another driver paid £240 for three nights in a twin room. We were greeted by... More

This is categorically the worst place i have ever stayed. Noisy, uncomfortable with lots of intimidating signs everywhere. Its own descriptions and inaccurate and misleading. Also the worst breakfast I have ever had. Avoid at all costs.

1. We arrived on Saturday afternoon to be greeted with a sign on the front door (which we later realised was a permanent fixture) that "I have gone to lunch. If any problems call me on ---mobile no." This sign would alternate with "I have gone out to dinner..." 2. The wifi did not work in our room (we were... More

I have done a fair bit of travelling, both personally and professionally and this is, by far the worst place I have ever stayed in. It's so bad I don't even know where tl start. Stayed in room 1 which looks as if it was about to fall apart any minute. Structural damage, crack, mold, leaking toilet, not enough hot... More

I looked for a twin room rather late so I didn't have a lot of choice - I was grateful just to get a room. Seems I was lucky with the parking - I managed to get into one of the two spaces at the front. Saturday night someone else took the space so had to park on a side... More
