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...

if you are going to Oxford and want to be in THE ideal location, this is the place to be. It is central to all the colleges, museums, shopping and the best pubs. Stuart and Carrie are great hosts and are very knowledgeable about what to see in Oxford. Breakfast is so substantial it could carry you through most of... More

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

Also thought I was staying for 2 nights. I was asked whagt I would like for breakfast and what time whilst I was unloading my case. Breakfast service of... 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
