We really enjoyed our stay here. A lovely hotel, very tastefully decorated, with very nice unexpected extra touches. The staff were extremely friendly, happy to assist in any way. Breakfast was great, I especially loved the homemade yogurt and granola. Good free WiFi, which is hard to come by in hotels these days! Great location, about a 20min walk to... More

The breakfasts were excellent, the homemade yogurt in particular We were in one of the downstairs rooms across the patio, although small they had... More

The Burlington is a great place to stay, breakfast is first class using tasty local produce. It is situated on the main road into oxford yet feel quite and there are buses into city every 5 mins - we had a great time.

The location is great, just a quick busride into town. Host was helpful almost to the point of being intrusive. The tv in our room worked intermittently. There was building work being completed on our arrival which I had been told would have been finished before we arrived and that we would be offered first occupancy of a new room.... More

I can subscribe all the positive recommendations that are already on the site. All the 5 stars are true. The manager is constantly running and serving. Sometimes too helpful but as he comes from India I think it is in the nature.

We stayed in a large room (7) with kingsized bed and found it very comfortable and clean. The breakfast had good choices for hot and cold, although I would have welcomed some more choices of fresh fruit. The location was convenient to some very good restaurants as well as banks, grocery stores, cafes, etc. My husband and I were able... More

Burlington House is what I pictured the lovely English Inn. And best of all, the dining room serves excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner. Definitely a return is on the wish list. Rooms are unconventional because this was not built as a hotel but a home but, you won't care, once ensconced.

nice location but small, very small rooms (less than 10m2)... While on the toilet, you literally touch the sink .... Old place, so noisy wood floors... Beds are too soft ... Not a great one ... I would not recommend thus hotel : I was there a single night and moved out !
