I booked the Pembroke Guest House for my friends hen do, with 10 lovely ladies. We stayed the weekend of 6/7th December 2014. Clair Newland the owner of the guesthouse was amazing from the minute I first enquired about the guesthouse. I ran my plans by Clair and she made very useful suggestions such as a walking tour of Oxford... More

We had a wonderful stay at Pembroke Guest House in Kennington, near Oxford. The owner was away, but her hospitality intern and host, Pedro, could not have been more graciously welcoming or accommodating, taking care of every detail to ensure a totally comfortable and enjoyable stay. He made the most artistically creative and delectable breakfasts which we looked forward to... More

Our cozy garret en-suite was spotless and had a nice breeze. Clare, Pedro & staff serve up delicious, filling breakfasts and individualized care that make this a perfect choice. Convenient access for the Oxford bus directly in front of the inn, or an idyllic walk along the Thames watching the Oxford colleges rowing crews train. Be sure to pause at... More

Clare and her wonderful staff attend to each guest's personal needs with graciousness and care to ensure a delightful stay. The adjacent river walk into Oxford was a joy each morning and bus access couldn't be more convenient - all in all a delight!

Claire provided a great breakfast, clean room and great advice during our stay. You have to take a bus to get there but it stops right in front of the home. The rooms are small and you share a bathroom but they are contemporary and clean. The bathroom had a great array of rubber duckys! Claire provided a map of... More

The place is nice. Location is conveniently right by a bus stop on a route into Oxford, and walkable if you have time and decent weather. Staff are pleasant, and the breakfasts are better than advertised.

Excellent helpful owner, lovely walk into Oxford along the river, very clean and nice bathroom. We were out late at a ball so couldn't make it up for breakfast but Claire ensured there was food waiting for us as soon as we woke up. Everything was very relaxed and no fuss making for a very easy, chilled weekend.

I booked in at Pembroke Guest house as a last minute stay for me and some colleagues. The rates were a lot better than others within the area so I was hoping that the pictures online weren't deceiving. They most certainly wasn't. The property(s) are beautiful and very welcoming, a modern touch met with comfort lead to a very relaxing... More

We recently stayed here for 3 nights whilst we visited Oxford for the first time as tourists. We are a family of four, with 2 children aged 7 and 5 months, so needed all the usual paraphernalia; travel cots, kettles for bottle water etc. Pembroke House was perfect for our needs, the rooms were clean, comfortable and roomy enough for...
