My wife and I have just returned from another very pleasant stay at the Burlington House Hotel in Oxford and we will certainly be going there again. We are fairly frequent visitors to Oxford and over the years we have stayed at a variety of hotels and B&B establishments in or near the City Centre. We can say without any... More

Clean, quiet, comfortable, excellent service and delicious breakfast- so easy to bus into the centre too!

Comfortable room at front of hotel. Clean and modern.Manager very pleasant and helpful.Good quality breakfast with plenty of choice.Convenient for access to Oxford. We walked in the evening we arrived then used the excellent public transport system. Minor criticisms. 8.45 seemed an early cut off point for having breakfast,but I guess it stopped us from wasting valuable sightseeing time.Also manager... More

Second visit. Picked for location. What frustrates me about trip advisor is reviews like Aqua700 I think and ccandcc who I feel don't review the place for what it is. Aqua comparing Burlington to a 5 star hotel in America who could pronounce his name is laughable then writing how cheap it was in expensive Oxford is confusing to anyone... More

My wife, my daughter, and I have stayed at the Burlington House three times this year. Our stays have varied from two to four nights, during the week and over weekends. We have rented two different double rooms (rooms 7 and 10) and one single room (room 3). Therefore, we feel that we have pretty good idea about this property.... More

We spent one night in this hotel recently, and nearly didn't bother because they asked us to pay in full nearly 3 months before the date of our stay. On arrival, laden with coats etc, we were asked to register before being shown to our room (fair enough) but also felt pressurised into accepting soft drinks we really didn't want... More

I was in Oxford visiting a sibling at the old University. In future I would probably sleep on the spare airbed. It is not completely accurate for Burlington House to describe itself (or be described) as a boutique hotel or B&B. It is not. 'Boutique' implies serious interior design credentials. Burlington House does not have these...nevertheless the website photos are... More

My wife and I (along with our four month old daughter) stayed here for two weeks as our flat was being renovated, and we couldn't have been happier here. We were treated with great care and were very impressed by the quality of rooms and the house overall. It's a very pleasant place to be, and the breakfast each morning... More

We were met on arrival mid-afternoon by Nes, our host, who couldn't have been more welcoming. We were offered fresh orange juice and a slice of delicious Diwali pistachio cake. Our room on the top floor was clean, spacious with a king-sized very comfortable bed. A good assortment of teas, coffees and quality biscuits are provided. The en-suite had a... More
