Acorn Guesthouse is reasonably priced and is located on a major bus line not far from downtown Oxford. If you want to visit Oxford and not pay a fortune, Acorn is a great option. The rooms are modern and very clean and the staff is quite helpful and courteous.

This seemed to be one of the more reasonably priced B&Bs in Oxford and so it probably represents good value for this city. The room was quite basic and a bit dated in terms of furniture and decor but it was clean and comfortable. The shared bathrooms were kept very clean. We stayed for 2 nights and on the first... More

overall excellent experience. Great breakfast spread, friendly puppy dog and helpful host family. They collected our forwarded mail and made allowances for us arriving late in the evening, helped with taxis and information about walking in the area. We would definitely stay there again. Rooms were clean and spacious, maybe a bit dated but comfortable with all the regular amenities...and... More

We booked to stay at the Acorn last minute as a group of 4. We checked in early which wasn't a problem and when we checked in Kate was very honest and told us that she had quoted the wrong rate; one of our rooms was going to be cheaper than we had already agreed to pay. We had 2... More

I stayed at Acorn B & B in December. There was plenty of parking outside which is rare in Oxford. The room was a bit dated, but exceptionally clean and warm. I had a cooked breakfast which was good but the sausage could have been better quality. I would stay again. Kate and Henry were very friendly and welcoming.

We've just back from another two night stay at the excellent Acorn, this time staying in our favourite garden studio flat. It's very comfortable and has everything needed in the kitchen area, plus a sofa bed and bed, nice bathroom and plenty of space, and its own front door. And wonderful value for such a convenient location on the Iffley... More

We spent 1 night at The Acorn and found it to be very comfortable, it is all immaculately clean and tidy. The owners are very friendly and extremely helpful, breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We had a room at the back which was quiet and the heating was efficient and easy to control. Nice range of complementary bits in the... More

As regular visitor to the Acorn Guest house I can unreservedly recommend this B and B! Kate and Henry are attentive, polite and helpful at all times; we have been able to secure bookings at very short notice when needed, and the new apartment facilities are beautiful.

I had the pleasure of meeting Kate and her husband in my short experience in Oxford. They helped me in a very critical situation. (Racist?) Any traveler with a little education and school education, should use the dictionary before writing heresies. The B & B is very nice, very clean, with everything you need. The beds are comfortable, and at... More
