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...

My Wife and I were treated to a day out in Oxford to be shown round by our Grandaughter, who is studying for her Masters at Teddy College Oxford. We were booked into a guest house called Five Mile View, having been warned about Oxford traffic, and lack of parking, we turned up at the guest house about 6 hours... More

This is a lovely B and B on Banbury road. Knowing Banbury road I knew there would be traffic noise but this is made up for by the fact your next to a bus stop saving the hassle of trying to drive into Oxford (which is almost impossible and parking is stupidly expensive). I was given a friendly reception. The... More

Owners were lovely and very helpful. Breakfast was great. The room we stayed in was a little on the small side, particularly the bathroom, but this was fine for just one night's stay. We thought the bed seemed a little hard at first but it was actually very comfortable and we slept very well on it. The B and B... More

We recently stayed at 5 Mile View Guest House, and it was a perfect location - out of the centre, however only a short bus ride to town centre or Bicester. We stayed in one of the family rooms, accommodation a little dated however doesn't effect the stay in anyway, the room was an extremely good size room.. King size... More
