This is a wonderful place to stay! Holywell B&B is centrally located and has secure parking. The room we stayed in was very clean and comfortable with a lovely bathroom. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and Carrie and Stuart are both very welcoming.

The best b&b we've ever stayed in! Perfect location opposite New College & close to everything of interest, secure parking and a beautiful pretty room. Tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean with lots of little touches which make it very homely. Excellent ensuite with a brilliant shower.

This is the best place I've ever stayed in! The rooms are decorated thoughtfully, and are comfortable and actually quite roomy. The bathrooms are clean and fresh-smelling. Stuart and Carrie are thoughtful and prompt to respond to any comments, and their breakfast is generous and delicious. It feels like a real, personal home, while also maintaining the cleanliness and amenities... More

Stuart and Carrie are excellent and considerate hosts, and their little B&B is the very definition of charm. Our rooms were cozy but not cramped, with bedside tea and cookies and chocolates, very tasteful decorations, big windows with a view out onto quiet Holywell Street, a TV and wifi if you want it, and good bathrooms with all the amenities....

If you want a large, faceless hotel with impersonal service, there are many to choose from in Oxford and I've had the misfortune of staying in some of them. This time however, I decided to spend two nights in the quaint, little Holywell B&B, directly opposite New College and just round the corner from the Rad Cam, Bodleian Library etc.... More

Beautiful B+B in the heart of Old Oxford. Off street parking a great advantage. Stuart's walking tour of the colleges is intelligent (not everything is about Harry Potter), informative and he has a wide general knowledge of Oxford and its long history.

Very accommodating hosts who provide a superb breakfast. Clean and well appointed accommodations. The hosts happily let us drop luggage off long before checking in at an arranged time, and there is a good system for leaving luggage after checkout and picking it up later -- both were important to us. The location is within easy walking distance of most... More

Stayed at this delightful B&B with my partner in October 2014 for 2 nights and can’t speak highly enough of it. Firstly, the location is optimal. It is located within the heart of Oxford University, within short walking distance to all of the major attractions as well as famous establishments such as the ‘turf tavern’. It is located on a...
