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

Last Christmas we had some relatives visiting us and we booked a room plus a studio at Pembroke Guesthouse in Kennington, Oxford. It was not the first time we booked a room at Pembroke Guesthouse - and it definitely wasn't the last time. The owner is the most friendly and helpful lady I ever met. When we first booked a...

I stayed at Pembroke Guesthouse in Oxford for a 4 week period whilst I was working in the town. I should have known from the unprofessional way we were dealt with even before we arrived that this was a mistake. Firstly, I must emphasise that although the accommodation provides a telephone contact number, your call will rarely be answered and... More

I would like to treat this review with the contempt it deserves, however a number of strong allegations have been made which I feel need responding to. This booking was made by a member of a drama group who were due to be performing Dirty Dancing at the local theatre, and was accepted after weeks of pleading for me to... 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.
