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

I made the mistake of not looking around at the reviews before booking here and the price of the room vs other accommodation in the area regrettably won me over. But at £45 for the night, I booked online and asked to check in at 8am; it was only when I received email confirmation of my booking and called to... More

Stayed here for one night, paying £95 for a family room (group of friends). The room was cramped, the bathroom tiny and the decor in the room and the whole place was (as other reviewers have said) run down to the point of neglect - it did not feel as if anyone cares much about the place. A shame, as... More

I was working in Oxford and had the misfortune of staying here. If I wasn't so tired by the time I arrived I would of left. Expanding foam was holding the curtains up, mould everywhere and blood up the walls. This place should be condemned. The photos on their website are misleading. Breakfast was disgusting. These people should be ashamed... More

It was cold, mouldy, dirty, but the worst thing was the staff. Not a single word said to me when I checked in. At 1am the owner banged on my door and asked to be paid. I asked for another blanket for my room (there was no heating on in December), she said no. Shower didn't work, tried to get... More

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
