Very friendly and accommodating owner running this b&b which is located on a direct bus route to the centre of Oxford. We had room 3 which is upstairs facing the road. It was a pretty small room with a tiny shower room and toilet with the washbasin located in the bedroom. However it was all very clean with a comfortable... More

Made to feel welcome on arrival & found the place to be clean & tidy, if a little dated. Car parking at the front & close to a bus stop, it is a good walk to the city & nearest pub to eat is in Summertown which is about a 20 minute walk. Our only concern was that it is... More

I guessed from the map that I could walk in and out to Oxford centre but it's a bit of a way, however I didn't have to wait more than 2 minutes as there are endless buses taking tourists and students etc in and out I arrived very early and was shown to a pretty bright and airy twin room... More

We stayed for a 3 night mini-break. The location is fab right next to bus stops for the city and only a mile or so from Summertown which has nice shops and restaurants - note there aren't any of these directly near the B&B but the buses are every 10 minutes so no problem. Parking is right outside, the room... More

The room was very spacious, comfortable and pristine. We had clean towels every day. The room had access to the back garden. A mini fridge in the room was a definite plus. The bathroom though comfortable, the wash basin was small. The breakfast was amazing with a choice of full English, continental pastries, cereal, fresh fruit and juice. The land... More

We stayed here when visiting someone who is a student and lives in Summertown. It was a perfect location especially as the bus route is right outside and they are frequent taking you straight into Oxford through Summertown. The owner was really helpful allowing us to leave our car from Friday morning to Monday afternoon. The rooms are a little... More

Room overlooking the street was rather hot, kind of plain. Breakfast was good. Straight bus ride into downtown Oxford and sufficient off-street parking so we could drive into the country (Blenheim Palace, the Cotwolds). Good talk with other guests, visiting scholars.

Stayed here for one night before an early start the next morning. The room had a flatscreen TV with coffee and tea making facilities. There was a small en suite bathroom. The double bed was nice and comfy. It was good value for a night's stay, but if you were staying longer than a weekend you'd probably want a bigger... More

My wife and I were visiting a relation in Oxford so having read some reviews on boarding houses around the Oxford area we thought we would give the five mile view a try, from the time we arrived to departure we were looked after, the bedroom was just right comfortable bed tea and coffee and biscuits in room good nights...
