My wife and I stayed for 3 nights. It was very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were delicious and staff were very friendly and informative. There was a bit of quirkiness in that the en-suite was accessed by leaving your room and entering the bathroom through a door in the corridor. Also, as a part of the cleanliness regimen, no... More

Claire and her stuff have been very gentle and helpful. She even took her own car to direct me the to right roundabout-exit because for foreign car drivers like me the traffic situation at Oxford in these days has been rather confusing. And the breakfast was fantastic, fresh fruit, tasty cheese, good bread, delicious tomato-omelette! Definetely would go back to... More

We have a lovely stay at The Pembroke for our Anniversary mini break. Over our two night stay the staff were both friendly and helpful. The room was lovely. Clean, comfortable and the en suite shower room had a roomy shower unit and was modern and clean with fresh towels supplied daily. The breakfast was continental and delicious. Although my... More

Hosts were so friendly, helpful and relaxed, delicious breakfast. Allowed us a place to leave bikes even after check out following day. Very informative with regard to places to eat where to walk along river and buses to get into oxford. Attic room was really hot, couldn't open window for fresh air as road busy that is only negative thing... More

The Pembroke has parking, is situated outside the centre, and is right next to a bus stop. As such, it was the perfect campaign headquarters for visits to the college open days. But the Pembroke was far more than this. Our landlady was the model of hospitality and professionalism. We had lovely clean, attractive rooms, the breakfast was marvellous -... More

Bana and Matt filled in quite ably for their mother Clare, who was on holiday from Pembroke Guest House in Kennington. Matt was well organized as he described the Oxford area to us and gave us a copy of the map he had prepared. Bana, a law student, was a perky conversationalist who cooked a flavorful breakfast (and di so... More

You DO NOT want to drive in Oxford but you do want a car to explore the Cotswolds. This B and B has parking(for later exploring) but the best feature is a bus stop right out in front where you can get into and out of Oxford for a minimal charge with frequent buses. There is also a great biking/walking... More

An excellent stay! Clean, comfortable, welcoming guest house. Delicious breakfasts, very friendly and helpful staff. We left behind a bag of my granddaughter's toys and the lovely landlady drove through Oxford weekend traffic to bring it to us. Way above and beyond the call of duty! Highly recommended.

We spent two nights here, very pleasant experience on all counts. Good location for City centre, we parked our car on arrival and did not use it again until we checked out as using public transport is so easy. Thank you Clare for making our stay so pleasant.

We stayed at Pembroke for two nights. Clare was out of town, but her husband Clive met us and even carried our luggage to our room. The room and ensuite bath were very spacious and clean with comfortable beds and lots of fluffy pillows. We had the attic room, which faces the street, and the view from our window of... More
