This bed and breakfast was not what we expected and definitely wasn't a 4 star! When approaching the property, we noticed sacks of cement in the porch and overflowing ashtray and beer cans. The lady who greeted us seemed friendly and apologized for the walls going up the stairs as they were 'undergoing repair'. There was plaster showing and the... More

I had a room on the backside overviewing a nice garden. The only remark is concerning the beds....vefy wobbly and noisy..... Beds need to be fixed..... Exellent breakfast served by a very lovely and... More

As we were seeing friends in Headington, where the hotel is located, they recommended we stay here. The bus stops right outside the hotel, so we were able to leave our car at the hotel throughout our stay. The staff are friendly and the breakfasts are adequate. We had a comfortable room on the ground floor overlooking the rear garden,... More

Staff were very pleasant. Location is good if wanting away from city centre. Major problem with beds. Very uncomfortable and need replacement. Breakfast was good. The decor could do with some refreshing.

Lovely b&b, everyone was friendly and helpful, room was nice and both bedroom and bathroom were spotlessly clean. Took about 15-20mins to get into Oxford in the car, so further than we anticipated it was, but other than that very enjoyable. Oh and it's directions say it's next to a sainsburys, it's not!!!!

We stayed at this hotel in August 2014 in a double bedroom (room number 3) on the first floor. The hotel itself was on the busy main road into Oxford, but as we were at the back of the hotel, there wasn't any road noise. The room itself was very nice, with tea/coffee making facilities in the room. The bed... More

Me and my boyfriend booked this hotel as we were staying as we needed somewhere to stay for my friend's graduation, and it was only a couple of minutes from the uni. After having looked at the reviews we were a bit cautious but still very open-minded. Once we got there the staff were very friendly, the room was lovely... More

We pre-booked our accommodation for Dial House from York. We thought that as a treat we would stay in a 4* B&B for the last night two nights of our U.K holiday. We had enjoyed good hospitality and accommodation from all other B&Bs on the trip, Dial House was the only exception. It was almost impossible to find, the number... More

This place is a bit more basic than the other b&bs nearby, but it is also cheaper than them, at least for a single room. Breakfast is good. They seem to be installing a gym at the back. So a simple place, but good value.
