My parents loved their stay here. The room was clean, lovingly decorated and absolutely fine size-wise (the owner said sorry for it being quite small, but I and my parents agree that it was absolutely fine for their purposes and didn't need to be any larger, especially since there was enough room to store clothing and suitcases!). The bed was... More

My wife and I have just returned from a two night stay at the Acorn We were in Oxford to attend a wedding at the university and can highly recommend this B&B. We found the Acorn to be extremely clean and tidy and our room had all the facilities we needed including free wi-fi which worked perfectly unlike some hotels.... More

This is a private house converted to bed & breakfast. The location is not exactly central but there is a bus stop close by and the city centre is just a 5 minute ride away. The neighbourhood is quiet and there are a few stores nearby. There are at least 8 rooms available between two floors, some of which are... More

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
