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.

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!
