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 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

We made a day trip to Oxford a year ago as part of a two week trip through Great Britain and fell in love with it - so when we planned a return trip to England this year I was determined to make Oxford our homebase for exploring. When I found Holywell BnB, I knew this was where I wanted... More

Holywell B&B is the real deal, from the grab rails to haul yourself up the stairs, to the tastefully updated bathrooms, the amazing central location, accommodating hosts with a wealth of local knowledge, delicious hot breakfasts that last you until a late pub lunch/dinner, a passing parade of students on bicycles, and a profoundly moving Evensong service at the New...

Great location and breakfast, and a comfortable room. Walk to everything. Connie, Carrie and Stuart are most gracious, and Stuart's tour is informative and funny. We stayed a week and will definitely return when we have a chance to dream among Oxford's spires again.

We stayed at Holywell B&B for three nights and found it excellent in many ways - charming rooms, comfortable and spacious; fantastic location in the centre of Oxford, with everything within easy walking distance; delicious breakfast and car parking available. We would certainly stay again!
