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

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
