High quality furniture but very old. I could sleep on the mattress but it`s not the most comfortable anymore. The door of the cabinet under the table was broken out and just leant against the cabinet; the holder for the shower head was also damaged. These are things easy to repair and I was surprised that it has not been... More

Stayed here for four nights to attend a wedding and catch up with family. I was very pleasantly surprised by the very spacious and well appointed bedroom and bathroom, both of which were spotlessly clean. I had an extremely comfortable (firm) bed with good bedlinen and the efficient double glazing meant I was not disturbed by traffic noise at all.... More

Have stayed before on business trips. The rooms are very clean and comfortable with coffee and tea facilities in the room. The breakfast was mor than I could eat. A very good choice of cooked plus fruit and juice as well as dry.

Although billed as a hotel on its google entry, this is a B & B: en suite room and breakfast. Misleading to call it a hotel. I objected to being asked as soon as I stepped through the door for my card details: not welcoming. I found the situation a bit distant from Central Oxford. It's an expensive taxi-ride, and... More

We have stayed at Cotswold House many times over the past 14 years and it is always good. Very clean and nicely decorated, facilities to make drinks in the room, good hairdryer and even a fridge, only complaint a rather creaky headboard! The breakfast is the best. Fresh fruit and juice, hot toast and freshly cooked English breakfast, better than... More

We just recently spent 2 nights at the Cotswald House. Proprietors Derek & Hilary Walker. Hospitality, room, and breakfast were the best we have ever experienced. If you travel to Oxford this is a must!

We arrived at 10 pm on our cycles, having cycled all day and evening. The keys were left on the doorstep , so we had to rouse the manager to open the garage so we could secure our bikes. In the morning , the breakfast was very "portion controlled " so nothing , apart form fruit was available for self... More

Cotswold House is a very nice place. We were warm and comfortable. The breakfast was excellent with a total range from continental to full english. The WiFi was excellent. There was a non-slip mat under the bath mat. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The front windows are double glazed and there is little or no traffic noise. Although... More

Clean and comfortable. Our room was upstairs at the side, and though rather small, was quiet with a comfortable bed and a small but functional ensuite (the bathroom floor was incredibly slippery though, even when dry!) About 2 miles out of Oxford, but good bus service takes you right to the centre. Easy walk to the shops and restaurants in... More

My wife and I stayed here on a visit to see our son who is a studying in Oxford. The location was great as we were able to use the excellent bus service that runs along the main road outside the guest house to go in to the city centre without having the difficulty associated with parking our car in...
