The guesthouse is in a quiet road, and all places of interest are easy to reach in a short walk. If you want to take the bus - the bus stop is app. 200 - 300 yards away only. Rooms and breakfast are okay. The people who look after the guests - maybe the owner (?) - are really friendly.... More

The proprietors do not live on sight. I arrived after a very long travel day to a locked door. I had to make an international call and had to wait 15 minutes for someone to arrive and let me in! The room was decent but the bathroom needed a deep clean!! mildew in grout, stains on door, only soap was... More

My wife and I stayed here one night during our driving trip and, though it was decent, it was probably the least impressive of the B&Bs at which we stayed. The room was small but clean. Breakfast was okay, an acceptable full English breakfast though nothing particularly special. The biggest problem was the shower. After one shower the water wouldn't... More

I travel the UK and the world for work and spend around ⅓ of my year in hotels, and I can't recall one as poor as this, mainly due to the attitude of the proprietors (who do not live onsite) at resolving the issues I had. I stayed for 2 nights either side of a 15hr work day. On the... More

We just woke up in a lovely little cheap and very clean room with our own bathroom - excited for the breakfast. A very friendly guy greeted us last night, gave us the key and also offered some "tips for tourists" - we almost feel like backpackers or adventurers in this little private hotel with its English charm! Close to... More

Stayed for one night only, but Hosts were welcoming and en-suite room well-appointed. Breakfast excellent. Ideally situated to wander around pubs and sights of Oxford. Spoke to some very nice Norwegians, but forgot to mention that I stroked Daniel Pedersen in Newport Pagnell. Must do better next time. Recommended!

This is a terraced house that is making the most out of the rooms it has which is understandable but it is a bit cramped and quite expensive for what it is. That said we cannot agree that it is dirty, the bedding was clean and the shower / WC very clean. No shampoo or shower gel provided though. There... More

Whitehouse View is a clean and friendly guesthouse, located on a quiet street about ten minutes walk from the centre of Oxford. The owners were really helpful and cooked a nice breakfast. The rooms were well equipped with a TV and lots of tea / coffee, although the wifi was a bit sporadic. The water pressure could have been a... More

The White House View guest house is, for Oxford, quite cheap and not far from the city centre. It is also on a quiet road. Facilities are very basic and the house has been the object of a great deal of not very professional diy. It seems to be a sister establishment of The Ridings (see my review), which is... More
