We stayed at the marlborough house hotel-B&B for 4 nights and was fully acquainted with how the people working at the hotel treats their guest. Upon arrival we were greeted by a lovely lady. As we are early for the checkin time, we were ushered at their coffee lounge and was served with coffee and some biscuits. The lady also... More

Located in a location close to Oxford key areas. Close enough to walk to good restaurants. The receptionist was friendly but occupied with other tasks. Room was outside of the main building door the street. The fittings were clean but worn and old. Shower was slippery. Good sized room. Parking is limited at the Hotel.

My friend and I have just enjoyed a two day break in Oxford staying at the Marlborough Hotel. On the plus side the lady that greeted us was pleasant and friendly and made us coffee after our journey. We left the car and went straight into Oxford which was a short distance so convenient. We got this hotel on a... More

Having been greeted by a lovely friendly receptionist I was escorted to my room, it was only then that my disappointing night began. The room looked like it hadn't been decorated since the hotel was built, the shower dripped constantly, the toilet wouldn't flush properly and the door wouldn't lock unless you positioned the lock surround! Oh and the radiators... More

And the smell remain hanging there... for extra money. The room are uselessly spacious with a kind of kitchnette. The shower... More

The cooked breakfast served to the room never varies and is of medium to low quality. On one of the 3 days we stayed it was served too early. The cups were not cleaned properly. The beds are not very comfortable. The bathroom is in need of renovation. We liked the fridge with the milk, jogurt, butter, juice (but the... More

I'll start with the positives: convenient access to Oxford (on a major bus route); very pleasant and helpful reception staff; large room; fresh milk in the room for tea-making; comfortable bed; clean grouting and tiles in the bathroom. So why only two stars? Breakfast, in a word. We were given half hour slots for breakfast to be delivered to our... More
