We only stayed for three nights but I am really glad I picked this bnb. :) We stayed in the family room upstairs - two flights of stairs lead you onto your private floor - there are two armchairs, books for children, fridge and from there you enter your room. There were three of us, so we had one double... More

This is simply the best b&b we have ever stayed in. The family couldn't have been more welcoming. We had the attic room, which is lovely, light, spotless and spacious, complete with independent little living area and children's books and toys. The bus into Oxford city centre is just 3 minutes walk down a leafy lane which also leads you... More

The rooms were clean and spacious, with regular size bathrooms, Ours even had an actual bath in it, plus a shower of course. While it is some distance out of Oxford the bnb is very handy for public transport, which is essential in Oxford as there's hardly anywhere to park. We liked the continental style do-it-yourself breakfast for the flexibility... More

I have stayed at the Oxfordbnb twice, and have already booked in for my next trip to Oxford. Both the family room in the attic and the twin room are lovely to stay in: the former is spacious, with a fridge, while the latter is bright and cosy. Each of these boasts a modern bathroom (great showers). I also always... More

What a truly welcome surprise to find such an exemplary B&B at the edge of Oxford! B&Bs in general can vary a good deal and can even be quite quirky, but Oxfordbnb in Kennington is spot on all round. The proprietors really went above and beyond the call of duty to help make sure our travel arrangements went smoothly, and... More

Bryan indicated to me the transportation. The room is large and quite. Quite easy going on having your breakfast, no time limit. Public transport to Oxford city is near the property. We can have the whole roof level with a small sitting room and fridge.

I stayed here at the end of May while attending a conference in Oxford and I cannot heap the praises high enough! Bryan and Siti are gracious hosts who go out of their way to look after their guests' needs. I was picked up at the train station, delivered on two mornings to the university and then shuttled back to... More

A home feel bnb, but you won't feel mama is watching you behind! We stayed here for 9 days. Room is unexpected clean, especially the bathroom. A quite place to stay. Great breakfast. Unfortunately, we experienced at least twice running out of hot water while bathing!! Mostly around 19:00 - 20:30, well, may be bathing high time! Brian and his... More

I have just stayed for two nights at Oxfordbnb whilst visiting Oxford. I had not been here before, and was pleased with everything. The owners are friendly; the room was large, clean and comfortable. I slept well each night, and enjoyed my 'self-service' breakfast each day- there was a good choice of cereals, bread that made good toast, good 'proper'... More

Right from booking a room at Oxford bnb it was obvious the owners were keen to make sure we had a good experience with advice about local amenities such as the local pub, about 5 min. walk from the b&b ,which we found basic but good value and the river footpath into Oxford which unfortunately we couldn't use because of...
