I've stayed here a bunch of times and the only bad thing I have to say is that they book up fast, so make your reservations early, especially in graduation season. The hotel staff are great, the rooms are comfortable, and the breakfast is great. For those staying a while, the kitchen is a wonderful addition as you can purchase... More

Not the biggest rooms but clean and comfortable. About 20 min walk into town or free parking so convenient for us. Slept 3 in our room so the bathroom was a bit awkward as the door has a gap on it. Breakfast was great, recommended going earlier to get hotter/fresher.

Its tricky finding a hotel in Oxford if you are driving a car. Finding a car park in Oxford is expensive and sometimes tricky - especially if you've come to view the museums and colleges and want to spend a half-day or more in the city. I can't solve the parking dilemma - probably a good idea to use park-n-ride.... More

On arrival the member of staff was very friendly and helpful. She upgraded my room for for free, it was very nice and modern with a double bed, sofa and TV, tea and coffee making facilities. The breakfast included in the price was excellent. Overall highly recommended.

We stayed here on our first night out of London and at the last minute, as it was getting late and we needed to find somewhere to sleep for the night. We didn't know what prices to expect and hadn't done our research, so for that reason, we were only able to compare accommodation prices between this and another hotel.... More

Enjoyed this very good boutique hotel in Oxford. Good access by bus to and from town, great breakfast, rooms large and beautiful bathrooms. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Please ensure you ask for a room away from the road, the road is very busy, Would stay here again.

From checking in to checking out staff were welcoming and friendly. After check out we asked staff and left the car in the car park while we walked into Oxford the next day, (20 min pleasant walk straight into Oxford), again the friendliness of staff when we asked was lovely. Our room was modern and very clean, we had a... More

This is a very good bed and breakfast. We stayed here for one night. The room was modern, stylish and cosy room which we adored. The staff was really friendly. This place is not in the city centre but is well connected by local bus.

I stayed here with my son visiting the university. The hotel/guest house is conveniently situated on the main Banbury Rd into Oxford centre - about a 30 min walk or quick bus ride (pricy though). There's a pleasant walk in along the Charwell if you find the right turning off the main road. The reception staff are friendly and helpful... More
