Room was ok. But come on, this is a B&B! No cooked options. The breakfast bar is an unappealing selection of economy ham and thinly sliced cheddar with some stale-ish bread for toasting. There were some pastries but they didn't look fresh. Some tired fruit. The coffee was a disaster. Come on. This is England. A breakfast involves bacon and... More

The rooms are small, mostly they have no bathroom and toalete. They proclaim English breakfast, but you get continental breakfast. Time span for breakfast is just one hour from 7:30 to 8:30. The only realy good thing is parkink just in front of the main entrance.

I was a study abroad student with a limited budget. This guest house fit the bill literally and figuratively: it was close to a bus stop for easy access to the Oxford city center, but far enough away from the city to be quiet in the evening. I booked a single room with an attached private bathroom. Amenities were clean... More

Hollybush is not one I will go to again. On the plus side, as others have said, the people are pleasant and the place is clean. The shower is strong and hot. Buses are regular. However, other facilities were poor and I've stayed in much better guest houses. The single room was very small, dull and faces a busy road.... More

Comfortable little b&b just outside Oxford. After big flight this was our first stop so really just after somewhere to sleep. Not too far from Heathrow and easy to find. Is located on road that carries fair amount of traffic but is double glazed. Room of reasonable size, bathroom facilities down the hall. Breakfast was enjoyable and staff polite. Well... More

Stayed here last night. Was spotlessly clean. Nice location on bus route to Oxford centre which is 10 minutes away. Good price so can't really complain. Would use again. One think is they write the bank details for booking in a diary and the cleaner asked us to say what our name was in the diary so could see other... More
