Our plans had changed and Marlborough house were very lovely and accommodating when they technicially didn't have to be - we really appreciated it. A lot of places would not have done the same. We will certainly bear this place in mind the next time we need to be in Oxford.

I stayed here for 1 night and was very pleased, the room was spacious with your own kitchen area. That sounds strange but worked really well for me, the staff were very helpful and it was very clean. Breakfast is served in your room as standard which was fine. Ample parking which is always a requirement for me, and i... More

This is not a hotel, its a b&b. The room was a good size, but dated. It included a fridge and microwave, so a good idea if you want to heat food. Breakfast is served in your room, which would be fine if it was warm and of good quality. I was very disappointed and asked for a breakfast refund,... More

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
