I would recommend if you look for a good night of sleep and a very good breakfast. Good location only 5 minutes away from the city centre by bus- £2.10 per ticket- The staff was amazing very friendly and polite :) they let me check out a little bit later than the usual. Just a quick tip - always ask... More

This Guest House showed lovely rooms on line, but the truth is the en-suite was so small I could hit my shoulder on the wash basin! Had I been bigger built I would not have fitted in there! The mattress had a large stain on it and NO mattress protector. There were noises during the night from guests at 2am... More

Positives: Location, friendly staff, mostly clean. Negatives: strong lingering smell of bleach in room. Shower: broken head, water trickles out, boiling hot or freezing cold so forced to have cold shower. TV: no TV guide function, no signal on all but 3 channels. Noisey pipes whenever flush pulled in middle of night, waking up wife. No hot water in sink.... More

Room was nice, well designed etc . Shower pressure was bordering on awful. Do not serve food until 8:00am for breakfast, ok for holiday but no so much for business.. Never actually met anyone until breakfast the next day. Keys were left in a key safe outside the door with a number to ring to check in

I had the top room and it was very hot but as on busy street it was a tough choice -the heat or the noise! Room was clean and comfortable though. If you arrive after 6 owner will not be there and that can be awkward with knowing where to park. I know it's oxford but it was expensive for... More

Stayed here with my boyfriend over the weekend and it suited us fine. Room very clean and staff we came in contact with were pleasant. Only thing to complain about was the shower head was broken and the water went from very cold to very hot... No in between! However this would not stop us returning.

Stayed in a twin room for two nights 26th to 28th June 2014. The room was basic but nice, clean and pleasant. Beds were comfortable with plenty of room for suitcases. The bathroom was basic, and fairly clean - the shower fitting was broken and hanging off the wall slightly. It could do with a spring clean, new paint etc.... More

I was living out of a suitcase whilst my dear wife was in hospital. My problem was finding accommodation at short notice, with parking, in a tourist city, at a reasonable price. Fortunately it was out of season, so I soon found the Lina and booked for one night. I arrived to find that the few parking spaces available to... More

I traveled solo to Oxford Oct. 31-Nov. 4th, 2013 for a conference, and stayed in this B&B. I chose it because the price was reasonable given all the other places in the expensive area and read good reviews. I arrived early at 10:30am (early flight) and neglected to inform the Lina prior (my own mistake); however, they were so kind... More
