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

My daughter and I had a perfect stay at the Pembroke Guest House. This was our first visit to Oxford and we will definitely be returning to this beautiful city and will be sure to rebook the Guest House on our return! Clare and the team accommodated our every need and couldn't have been more helpful, giving us a really... More

This was an extremely pleasant experience. When we arrived on the driveway the owner Clare was quickly out to welcome and check us in. There then followed a brief rundown on what we might want to see in Oxford during the short time we were there. Lots of tips all mapped out with care. The accommodation was 'boutique' style and...

Arriving from the USA we spent our first two nights in Oxford at the Pembroke B&B. What a delight! The No.#35 bus that runs into Oxford stops directly in front of the B&B. Our room was immaculate and spacious. The innkeeper Clair was a fantastic! The breakfast was great, and when we asked Clair if we could have porridge for... More
