Stayed one night July 2014. We were early that day and Melanie answered the door, and brought us tea, coffee, and an assortment of cake, egg rolls and biscuits. We were pleasantly surprised by her hospitality. Stefan showed up later and he was so friendly. The facility is clean and well-maintained. The room is lovely and charming. The room comes... More

We arrived late in the evening which was not a problem. This B&B is really high class. So is the breakfast that Stefan serves every morning. Everything is wonderful and freshly cooked upon order. We did walk into town but it is also easy to catch a bus. With a 24 hour ticket you can also go back on a... More

I can only reiterate what other reviewers have said about this establishment - it is so handy for visiting Oxford, the rooms are immaculate and jam packed with just about every extra you could possibly ask for and the breakfasts are amazing. I am a fussy eater and I woke up each morning full of excitement about the food I... More

We had been upgraded to a lovely king room (7), huge bed, TV, build in cupboards; bathroom had a rain shower in which was great, toiletries were all supplied - we even... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed four nights at Tilbury Lodge this past week and loved it! Stephan is a great, friendly bear of a man who has never met a stranger. Between Stephan and his highly competent assistant Tandy, this B&B is just lovely. First of all, it is immaculately clean, from baseboards to ceilings, bed linens, everything. The... More

We stayed at Tilbury Lodge for three nights. Great parking area and the location was quite and very convenient for the city with excellent bus service, it's not close but you could walk too. The welcome we had was wonderful, all the home baking and treats. The hospitality tray in the room was amazing.

We stayed two nights at the Tilbury Lodge and loved it. When we checked in, our rooms were ready early, and we were greeted with minted ice water and later, tea and homemade cupcakes. The rooms were spacious, clean, and bright, and it was wonderful to open the windows and hear the birds singing. In the rooms, there were fruit,... More

Our roomy bedroom and bath with large closet with little fridge for snacks and drinks was delightful with a view of the green backyard of trees and birds. Doves were cooing just outside our window. The large shower had a rain shower head, which you could turn on without getting your head wet. Shortly after arrival, owner Steph and Melanie... More
