Could not fault it ,very friendly people who were a mind of information with their vast knowledge of the town. I don't normally eat a breakfast but couldn't resist ,set me up nicely for the 20min walk into town which on a sunny day was a treat along the bank of the Thames.Two days was not long enough so we...

This is the second time I have stayed in Cornerways whilst visiting Oxford for business. For me, it is a great location with a nice stroll along the canal into the office and not too far from a variety of restaurants and pubs. I stayed downstairs which would be a little small for two (as is stated); but for one... More

We had an amazing time staying at this guesthouse. The room is lovely and spotless, the host is very friendly and full English breakfast was tasty! After checking out it was no problem to leave our luggage at the guesthouse so we could explore Oxford a little more before take off. The host also offered to call us a taxi... More

It is hard to fault this guest house at the price and in comparison with the competition in Oxford, a city plagued with poor quality, expensive accommodation. It offers good rooms with extra touches (e.g. DVD player in my room) and an excellent breakfast at low cost. It is within walking distance or a short bus ride to the city... More

Recently stayed for one night in the ground floor room. It was cosy, warm, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The ensuite shower room was compact but had everything needed. I absolutely loved my stay. Small touches such as bottled water on the hospitality tray and a cafetiere of coffee at breakfast make a real difference. Carol is a perfect host and... More

Host Carol is delightful and very helpful. My small room had a double bed, was well appointed and very comfortable, with a lovely little ensuite bathroom with a good shower. The little extra thoughtful touches were noticeable; ease of wifi access, bottle of mineral water, extra soft bath mat, plenty of pillows (I often have trouble with pillows that are... More

This B & B is totally spotless inside and outside, it has free off road parking and is a short walk into the centre of Oxford. Fabulous breakfast served in a conservatory with views out to a beautifully manicured garden.

Easily the best b&b we have ever stayed in - we spent two nights here and left wishing we could have stayed longer. Our small double room on the ground floor was just as advertised - compact yet cozy, beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Being at the rear of the property, it was also very quiet. We truly felt home... More

Good location near the city centre of Oxford (15 minutes walking or 5 minutes by bus) in a pretty environment. Very friendly staff. Top breakfast. Rooms are very clean and the bed is excellent. Easy parking. Just note that the rooms are not so large (as usual in in England)
