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

I'd love to give this B&B (in reality more an aparthotel) 5* for its location, rooms, vfm, food etc but I can't because its let down by the state of the bathrooms. As others have commented they are showing their age and need refreshing. But even this doesn't excuse sloppy maintenance to deal with faulty taps, lights, fans, showers or... More

Another visit to the dreaming spires of Oxford and another lovely stay at Marlborough House Hotel. Situated a few miles outside of Oxford on one of the main roads into the city (Woodstock Road), the hotel is ideally situated for a relaxing Oxford vacation - straight off the motorway, free parking at the hotel (a big plus point in Oxford!),...

I booked this for a conference I was attending and stayed for 2 nights. I arrived quite late and found my keys pinned to the door which I found VERY worrying as a single female about to check in. My room was on the ground floor and the bedding/bed/room met the basic needs of warmth and cleanliness. As someone else... More

A clean and quite good hotel, however a security light malfunction meant that our room was flooded with light for two nights. Despite raising the problem it was not fixed until our third night. However my real complaint is that no price reduction was offered, when I put forward my case a 5percent reduction for the affected nights was offered,... More

We stayed one night at this hotel and the experience was very pleasant. The room was clean, tidy and well furnished with the additional advantage of a kitchen area with microwave and kettle provided along with basic provisions. The breakfast was served in the room and there was a good table and chairs for it to be served. The staff... More

We stayed with our14 month old and found the staff to be very helpful. The room was spacious, and was well stocked with daily supplies - tea, coffee, breki cereals, yoghurts, juice etc. and replenished daily. Breakfast is served in the room which was very convenient. The staff were obliging when we asked if our room could be left until... More

Kudos also to management of the Marlborough House Hotel for its superb staffing. From check in to check out the service, staff and rooms were 10/10. They all have a very relaxed and warm attitude towards their guests. The room was spotless and room service for meals was excellent. Stayed mid week and got a great deal, then on arrival... More

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
