Carrie and Stuart were very welcoming and helpful hosts and made a great breakfast. The historic B&B is in a wonderful location, is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and full of lovely touches that make a stay that much more special. We were in the New College room with a very comfy bed and beautiful modern bathroom with a strong shower.... More

Carrie and Stuart are very welcoming hosts. They took excellent care of us; not only the delicious breakfasts, the charming accommodation and wealth of information about all things Oxford, but also Stuart's excellent Oxford Walking Tour. We learned so much on his tour of several colleges, gaining access and information we could not have done otherwise. We stayed in the... More

Holywell B&B is a great place to stay in the heart of academic Oxford. The town's historic, cultural, and commercial sites are within easy walking distance. While there, we walked to many favorite places including the Oxford Playhouse, the Ashmolean, High Street, the Old Schools Quad, and many shops, pubs, and restaurants. The B&B itself is clean, comfortable, and beautifully... More

This is a great little B and B in a fantastic location in the centre of Oxford. A charming old house, beautifully decorated. Carrie and Stuart were great hosts and were extremely helpful with booking, my arrival and were happy to allow me to leave my car in their carpark for the day after checking out. Delicious cooked breakfast. First... More

The Holywell bed and breakfast is a nice place to stay. You will find the owners Carrie and Stuart to be welcoming and friendly. It is a listed building which has its origins in the 16th century and this adds to its charm. It may not be for you if you are expecting a typically 'formatted' and 'plastic' hotel room... More

We stayed two nights in early July in this stunning and historic B&B in a superb location in the heart of Oxford prior to attending the Oxford Experience at Christ Church. Can't say enough about our hosts, Carrie and Stuart, and their charming dog Max. Located close to Broad Street and The High and close to all that beautiful Oxford... More

We stayed here for five nights and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Carrie and Stuart were excellent and thoughtful hosts. Breakfast was delicious and we were impressed by the quality of food and options available. Then location of this B and B is unbeatable- 5 minutes walk to anywhere in the city center. (We found the ease of getting anywhere around town... More

We had a wonderful stay in this authentic B&B which is just a short walk into town. Staying on the top floor we had to carry our suitcases up the small, steep winding staircase. Our room faced the street and was next to the bathroom which was for our private use. The B&B has a lot of character with old... More
