My wife and I stayed here for a week last summer, so this review is long overdue. I commuted from here everyday to Wolfson College on the other side of Oxford. Since there's a bus stop right outside our door, the daily commute from Kennington was not burdensome. And it was a pleasure coming "home" to Pembroke House every day.... More

I found this guest house located on the outskirts of Oxford & stayed for a very stress free 2 nights. The wonderful breakfasts where the perfect start to my day & coupled with the helpful staff and well decorated rooms - I could not recommend this guest house more. A well deserved "Excellent" thank you Clare.

Pembroke House is conveniently situated for Oxford eventhough in a village out of Oxford city centre the house is on a direct bus route which takes one into the centre of Oxfors in 15-20 minutes. I stay at Pembroke House at least 4 or 5 times a year and have always found the owner Clare to be nothing but charming... 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
