Lovely old house converted to top quality B&B. 15 mins walk to Oxford city and 10 minutes to Summertown high street with supermarkets, shops, restaurants, cafés, etc. Great and helpful staff, very good breakfast. Highly recommended.

Parklands provides an easy walk into Oxford town or an even easier base for exploring the restaurants and bars of Jericho. Lovely old building, clean and comfortable rooms, decent breakfast as well. Overall Parklands represents very good value for money in what can be an expensive town. I will certainly return.

The Parklands is a lovely old North Oxford house in a good location, a short distance out of the city centre; the welcome is unobtrusive (never anyone in reception anytime I came in and out, which was fine as it meant that it felt a bit like walking into your own house - there's a bell to press if you...

This hotel / B&B is a little bit worn down if you look “in the corners”, especially outside, but it is spotlessly clean and with a good atmosphere. Staff is attentive, especially in the breakfast restaurant. It is very easy to find, and it is within walking distance of Oxford’s city centre, which is very nice. Beware: There is no... More

We were lucky to find a room available at short notice when we spent a Friday night in Oxford, rather than drive home to Herefordshire after the theatre. It was our first visit to Parklands, and we were very impressed. A compact room, but very comfortable and bright, with a great bed and ample storage. Only one strange feature -... More

Everything that I have praised in the past remains true. But there were new events worth reporting. I needed to go shopping but had arrived in early evening. I asked if the owner knew when M&S closed. While I unpacked he found out and told me within a few minutes. At breakfast a visiting American asked if there was a... More

Parklands B&B is a beautiful grand house just a 15 minute stroll from Oxford city center. Our room was clean and very comfortable, but the heating in the bathroom seemed to be set to sauna, even the floor was hot, not just warm!! Breakfast on the first day was dissapointint with solid poached eggs and dry bacon. Thankfully this was... More

The room was really comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small, but since it's a house that was refit as a hotel, it's understandable. Be prepared that there are a lot of stairs, so if you have trouble with that, this is not the hotel for you. The breakfast was really good - and the coffee was amazing. I didn't... More

Easy bus ride into town centre and a fair price for its location. Had been nicely modernised and was all very clean Met 2 reception staff, both very helpful. Gave us free parking permit to go into town even after we checked out which we weren't expecting

Visiting Oxford for a 50th Wedding Celebration Cruise, we were let down by our original Hotel (no names, no pack drill!). Popped into Parklands to ask for directions to another B&B (cheeky, I know, but needs must!), were immediately impressed by our reception and decided to stay. Thank you, Sue ;-) The Hotel . . . a fine old Victorian... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in a tree-lined residential area of North Oxford (just 15-20 minutes walk from the City Centre), Parklands offers bed and breakfast accommodation in the late Victorian former home of an Oxford Don. In addition to our 15 well-appointed en-suite rooms, we also offer a comfortable guest lounge (we are licensed to serve drinks) and a private walled garden for unwinding after a long day's work or play. We have various office facilities available for guests needing to catch up on correspondence or meet that important deadline as well as FREE wireless broadband throughout the premises. We are easily reached from an excellent network of major roads (ample car parking is provided on-site) or via public transport, with Oxford's railway and bus stations just 1½ miles away. ... more   less
