A great little hotel, pleasant and very helpful staff. Good value. Very quiet bedroom Excellent location bus stop just outside. Don't take your car into Oxford, medieval cities are best explored on foot.

I stayed at Marlborough House for 1 month as part of a work relocation package so can advise better than most. 1. All staff are polite and friendly 2. All rooms have fast WiFi 3. You get a studio apartment with kitchen, desk and dining table. The room is big 4. I am a light sleeper, I slept soundly every... More

This 'hotel' was one of the worst I have ever stayed in. We paid £100 for a night's stay and I cannot think of anything I can compliment. You are encouraged to ear breakfast in your room in the morning and there is only a 1 hour window if you want to eat in their 'lounge'. -The man we dealt... More

The hotel is situated in a good position just outside Oxford, close to the bus stops so you don't need to worry about taking the car into the city centre. The staff were friendly, the room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast delivered to the room each morning was hot and very filling. The only thing that I believ let... More

This is a nice hotel and the oddly-named "guest suite" (surely they are all guest rooms?) is spacious and well-decorated. What I liked was the fact that it had a refrigerator, microwave and a decent-sized kettle. If you put on the shower, go and read a book and it will be about tepid when you have finished. The water supply... More

Location –Takes about 15 minute bus ride (from opposite street) to reach the train station or the center of town with all the tourist attractions. We took a 24 hour bus pass which was perfect for our trip. Price – It was not very cheap. But we chose this since the other properties in the center of town were much... More

This hotel was very disappointing. It has 4 AA diamonds and is far from cheap but is not worthy of either it's AA rating nor it's price tag. The room is very tired and is overheated. The kitchen area looks as if it is from the 1980s. The cutlery and crockery were dirty and the bed mattress was so old... More

We stayed here for one night to celebrate a birthday in Oxford and the hotel was a big mistake. The room not bad at a glance but we found every piece of cutlery and all the glasses were totally dirty, there was even a horrible stain in one of the beds. The TV was smaller than a laptop screen. The... More

We booked 2 double rooms at this b&b through Booking.com on 23/8/14 for 26/9/14 but were forced to cancel because one of our guests was hospitalised and our plans changed. We rang to cancel on 24/9/14 but were told we had to cancel before the 18/9/14 - a week beforehand. They then deducted the total amount from my credit card... More
