We had a great stay in this hotel, it's close to the city centre and the bus stop is just few walks from the hotel itself. The room is really spacious, you also get a fridge and microwave in the room which is useful especially if you are considering buying food from the supermarket. The FREE wi-fi is a real... More

Nice spacious room - nice to have the option of microwave plus good size fridge. Very clean. Decor a bit dated. Mattress was sagging on one side and I mentioned this on leaving and they said they would attend to it. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was OK - bit odd to have it served in the room since... More

Having spent the night at the Marlborough House hotel, I'm not sure what to think. The rooms are spacious and clean, but bit dated. The concept of having a mini kitchen in the rooms seemed a bit odd. I really didn't like breakfast being served in the room, leaving a bacon/fried food smell in the room. Wouldn't have been to... More

We had booked a room while on the way to Oxford through booking.com. Upon arrival it was discovered that our reservation had not been received, but fortunately there was room available and the reservation processed while we were standing there. We were in room 7, which is a very good sized room which includes a stocked refrigerator(some of the items... More

Pleasantly surprised by the Marlborough house hotel and would recommend it to anyone visiting oxford as long as you don't mind being a couple of miles out from the city centre. The name is misleading as it is definitely not a hotel but is a good B and B, reasonably priced for oxford. We stayed in a very spacious, if... More

For £100/room it should be better. Unlined curtains, cheap bathroom fittings, characterless rooms, furnished 1970s style. Breakfast is OK: well-cooked sausage, beans, scrambled egg, toast and bacon, but there is no fresh fruit or continental option and you have to make your own tea in tiny cups (no tea-pot provided). But rooms ARE spacious, at least. Staff are very friendly.... More

Very nice staff, big room, but this is no hotel. B&B, 1960s style. On the good side, decent sheets and towels. But. Furniture shabby, room cleanish but actually needing a deep steam clean, and shabby, bathroom cheap fittings, low pressure shower. kitchenette cheap tacky fittings. Parking very cramped. Noise of pipes at night. Worst breakfast under the sun, no vegetarian... More

We stayed at the Marlborough House for 2 days during our recent family visit to Oxford. The location was quite convenient, the rooms were very well maintained and beds were comfortable. We were also pleased with the service offered by the staff, the breakfast and the complimentary stuffs provided in the room. Overall, a Convenient and Comfortable stay!

Stayed here for a week on business. Staff couldn't have been more helpful, good sized room and wonderful breakfast. Quiet location within easy reach of the town centre. Definitely recommend. Will be sure to return.
