Stayed here in February, only just got around to reviewing. Room wasn't entirely big but had a generous size shower/toilet room. Good enough to stay a few days. Was 2 single beds pushed together, but that was okay, more room. Breakfast not great but alright, continental. Filled a hole. TV in room & wardrobe. View of church from room was... More

This is good place to stay if you like to care for your self. The guesthouse is only staffed at breakfast, but the staff is soon there when calling to check in. The room I stayed in was a bit small for two people but if you are out most of the day and night it doesn't matter. In short... More

Having seen a couple of dodgy reviews of this place recently I was quite dubious about booking it but decided to go ahead as it was pretty cheap. The place was better than expected. It wasn't 5 star by any means but the owner was nice and the room was clean. The bathroom was a little run down but functional!... More

Awful B&B. Stayed one night with my 17 year old daughter on visit to a university college. Needs some serious money spending on it to bring it up to scratch. Terrible smell of 'must'. Breakfast poor. No one around to complain to. We wouldn't have stayed if we hadn't arrived so late. Definitely would NOT recommend this shack!

As one of the previous reviewers said it is clean and the staff are welcoming, but cramped bathroom, poor sound insulation from the room above, curtains that are too short to cover the window and very poor breakfast all add up to it not being value for money.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my wife recently. We were in a front facing room which meant road noise. Beyond the chintzy décor the bathroom was clean and smart, though we couldn't get the shower warm enough and it was weak. We were given two single beds pushed together. The breakfast was very disappointing - the management must have... More

I was due to stay at the Lonsdale Guest House last week for business meetings in Oxford. I was due to stay there 2 nights and rang to inform them the day I was due to arrive at 7pm that my meetings were cancelled and I could not travel. In the terms & conditions of my booking the guest house... More

Arrived at the Guest house with my daughter around 5.30 in the evening . Was greeted by a pleasant man. Got a bonus as when I booked the room we was having to share the bathroom but that did not bother us as it was only for an over night stay, only to find we was given another room with... More

Our room looked freshly decorated and there was not a chip to be seen on the paintwork. Everywhere was extremely clean. The bathroom was spacious, particularly the shower cubicle and the water was pleasantly hot. There was a very good choice at breakfast, including a basket of fresh fruit, which always gets my vote. The fact that the Lonsdale is... More

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.
