This B&B is dirty, mouldy and dangerous, with unwelcoming staff, ill fitting appliances and noisy plumbing. When I told the staff about the water coming through the ceiling, no more than 6 inches away from a light fitting that was on, I was abruptly told they already knew about it. I don't consider myself a snob when it comes to... More

This is a really old fashioned boarding house. It's in a poor state of repair. I had a single room on the top floor with shoddy furnishings (apart from the bed that was comfortable with clean sheets). The wallpaper was peeling and torn and the rug was held down with tape. The bathroom sink was so small I had to... More

We stayed here to attend Blenheim Horse Trials as it was closer than where we normally stay - what a mistake! It actually took longer due to traffic but realise that's no fault of the accommodation. Guess it sounds harsh but not much good we can say about it - it's only redeeming feature was the full English breakfast and... More

I wanted somewhere to stay for one night in Oxford in October 2013. I was shocked at just how expensive this city is for hotels. Certainly more than the UK average. Eventually I found the Adams online. I thought this will do. It's cheap and cheerful by the look of it. Upon arrival, I realised that car parking is difficult.... More

Hotel location in Summertown near the shops and only a few minute bus ride into town. The interior and decor is outdated. Room was simple and quiet, the breakfast was fine. Jól megközelíthető helyen van a városközponttól nem messze. Egyszerű szoba, a berendezés és a tapéták felújításra szorulnak, a reggeli jó volt.

This property should be banned from renting accommodation. Where to begin?. There is visible mould and dripping water between floors. The decorations in dining room are dirty with dust as are rooms. Holes in bathroom walls and threadbare carpets. Read other reviews for comprehensive experiences. Not cheap either. Go else where in the area.

My heart sunk as I approached the building. Run down and dirty. As I walked in I was confronted by a miserable member of staff who made things even worse. When I got into my room I saw why this Guest House is so low in price. The room was run down, dirty and smelly. Not to mention extremely small... More

Just the look of the outside was enough to put you off,the paint work was peeling off the windows the place is unkempt. Our bedroom was the same, two single beds pushed into a single room, the furniture looked like it had come from a second hand shop, or from the tip. The net curtain hanging at the window was... More

A perfect candidate for the Hotel Inspector TV series. The place is dilapidated, with wall paper that could have been better hung by an untrained monkey falling down all over. The hot water tap in the bathroom basin did not work. The furniture in the bedrooms (we hired 2 rooms) looks like it was collected from the local tip, with... More

Again, I can only say that I wish I had read the reviews here before booking. Without a doubt the worst B&B I have ever stayed in. Mould on the walls, dubious plumbing, uncomfortable bed and a huge amount of external noise starting well before I decided I had had enough and left at 7am. It was slightly difficult to... More
