Quaint facilities with modern shower/bath. The hosts were hard to find and not terribly friendly. But it was a nice old house in a quiet neighborhood. I liked the breakfast area and the food was fine.

Stayed here with a group of friends for a birthday. (7 of us). We had 2 rooms and they were very basic, if that. We stayed in the family room and large room (£80 & £95). One if the rooms smelt very musky and damp. Mould covered the 'bathroom' if you can call it that. Very small rooms, both cramped.... More

Checked in at noon and left my bag in my room.Returned at midnight and left at 9am.9 hours was enough. I was in room 9 at the top.There is a skylight about 20 feet up in the ceiling and no window so no chance of any fresh air. The whole place needs redecorating it is a shambles. It just feels... More

If only I'd read Tripadvisor before booking. I was in Oxford for a weekend course and the 15 minute walk from town centre seemed fine and it was cheap. (£45 for a single). The 15 minute walk was in fact a 15 minute bus ride. The house looked tired and shabby, as was my room on the 2nd floor in... More

My friend and I were attending a conference in Oxford and wanted somewhere 'cheap & cheerful' for one night. Foolishly, I didn't check Tripadvisor. On another website this place had a rating of 5.9 out of 10 which sounded as though it would be basic but OK, and the photos didn't look bad. When we got there, just before 6pm,... More

I don't think I need add any more. Just find somewhere else. It isn't dirty but that's the only positive thing to say about it. I didn't bother to try the breakfast. tiny room at the top barely enough space to move. A depressing place to stay.

My friends and I spent two nights here. While the B&B isn't in the city center, it's near bus stops and is feasible by foot if you prefer to save £2 on bus fare. The service was fine, our room was clean and cozy, well-lit and with nice beds. We couldn't get the wifi to work in our room and... More

Hi. I don't feel that I can say a lot about this place as I wasn't there long. Ten minutes maybe. I didn't read Trip Advisor. We were paying £90 for a night here in oxford. I know thats not a lot in Oxford, and I didn't expect 5* treatment. I did expect 3*, and this was probably more 1*.... More

We were a little concerned about coming here given the negative reviews. We were happy with our accommodations considering the location and price. The room was clean, well equipped. We had TV, wifi, and parking. It was a great location and we would come again if visiting Oxford. We were put in as soon as we arrived in the afternoon.... More

Good value for money, shower room a bit small but made to feel very welcome. the b&b is advertised as family run but we did not get this impression. still the service was great and i would return. The area was lovely with some lovely bars to visit.
