Poached eggs to die for....a good choice of menu excellently cooked, good service all round, comfortable bed, good variety of teas in the room. Water and biscuits. The shower was a bit feeble and it was awkward to fill the kettle from the sink. Very convenient for the city with buses running every five minutes from just up the road.... More

Very good. Not excellent, but really very good. Clean, comfortable, well placed: it IS 15 minutes walk from the city centre (provided it is a rather brisk walk). In my experience, the staff was friendly beyond measure. Since I was attending a long conference, all I really needed was a bed and a bathroom - and this is where my... More

Parklands was recommended to us by our daughter who had stayed there last year. It was very clean and the breakfasts were well presented and tasty. It is a 15 minute walk into the city or you can get a bus from a nearby bus stop. The buses are frequent. We were given a twin room, which was small but... More

A nice if not inexpensive b & b. Lots of variety in the rooms, great breakfast. Good parking although the squirrel poo is a bit of a nightmare (I kid you not). Walking distance from the centre and train station (or 5 mins in a taxi). Overall high recommended.

excellent guest house, very accommodating and helpful staff. they accommodated our daughter to have breakfast with us even though she lives in Oxford. Also arranged for taxi service for our very early departure. very clean and cozy room, very good breakfast. rooms may have been small, but most European hotels are. Wi-fi worked well.

We stayed for 2 nights recently. We were told where our room was but there wasn't much staff presence other than at breakfast time. Double room was spotless as was the lovely modern Ensuite. Location handy for getting into town, regular inexpensive bus service passes right by every 5 minutes, so didn't need to worry about parking in town. Excellent... More

We stayed here for one night over the mid term break in February. The room was adequate (standard double room), the hotel clean, the staff friendly, and the location ideal for walking or taking the bus into Oxford. This hotel would not be suitable for a person with mobility issues as there isn't a lift. Parking is included which is... More

Received well, shown to room, instant wow factor, well upgraded room on first floor, big wide stairs. Fantastic bathroom and great wifi reception. Lots of windows so a little noise and a super creaky room above. Great parking about a 15 min walk to the outskirts of the centre but 30 min to the true centre and we are no... More
