We had a great stay at the Lonsdale. Malcolm and Ness were very polite, friendly and helpful. Will definitely stay again. Great location, clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice. Information provided on arrival. Thank you.

This guest house is perfect. Very roomy for a guest house, clean room, and very friendly helpful staff (happily let us check in 2 hours early). Location alone gives it 5 stars, bus route into city centre virtually right outside. Free parking (which in Oxford is worth a lot !!) Book with confidence.

The bathroom was a nice size, though there was a lot of empty space where there could have been some sort of table or something to put a few things on like towels and toiletries. The shower was a good size but awkward to get into because of the way the door opened, and the shower was not very powerful... More

I was booked into the Lonsdale Guest House by a company I was working for. At first, I was a little disappointed to not be in Central Oxford - but, in reality, Summertown has everything you need for a one night stay! There's a nice selection of restaurants just a short walk from the Lonsdale, or, for those who prefer... More

Just stayed in this guesthouse for 1 night. We had a room with ensuite which was very nice. Room clean and well equiped. Enjoyed the tea and coffee choice in the room. Breakfast was lovely, excellent choice and service. Even a vegetarian option for the cooked breakfast. We will be booking this guest house again next year!

the room I had is on the top floor, with it's own separate bath, there is plenty of room, free wifi, good breakfast, bus stop and restaurants right outside and the woman who runs the place is very nice. The downside to a guest house is there is no front desk, so there is not always help when it comes... More

I paid about £50 to stay in this B&B which is about the starting rate of B&Bs in Oxford. It seems quite popular so book in advance. It's based in Summertown, so only really worth it, if you need to be that side, as I needed to be. The owners are super friendly and as I was driving there, rang... More
