The curtains couldn't close as they were falling off their rails and were unusable. The bathroom although not dirty looked like it as the flooring and the tiles were so worn out and needed replacing. The worst was the breakfast. We had a cooked breakfast and it was beyond awful. They need to hire a decent breakfast chef as soon... More

Once again we had the most enjoyable stay in the Dial House. We have stayed here on several occasions during our medical trips from the Falkland Islands and on every occasion the staff are most friendly . They know many folk from the Falklands as the Falkland Islands Government often use the Dial house as a place for patience to... More

The hotel is located in the center of Headington. Close by to bus stop for Oxford center. The stop of Heathrow/Gatwick airport or London express buses 5min walk away. In less than 5min walk many different restaurants (English pub, Indian, Chinese, Hamburger). The rooms are clean and have a lot of space (even the ones on the 2nd floor, which... More

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

Exellent breakfast served by a very lovely and... More

The reoom was spacious and clean i would rate this as average for a Hotel but good for a guest house. the staff were polite and friendly the... 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
