Only stayed for one night. Free parking is a bonus. Breakfast is okay although the coffee is not good. Bed and pillows extremely on the firm side. Very average B & B - not sure what the 4 stars is all about!

This was half the price of the b&b we stayed in the night before but the room and service were still top quality. The staff are very pleasant and the room was beautifully presented. We will definitely be staying here again.

I stayed here for a night with three colleagues following a long day's training event. We were on a tight budget but Conifers were happy to offer us 4 rooms at their cheapest rate to match this budget, for which we were very grateful. I emailed the night before our arrival to confirm that we had four rooms booked and... More

I am sorry that we were not able to handle the situation any differently, however, I understand that it got resolved fairly quickly. It is a rare... More

We had a lovely stay in this well run B&B. It was clean, comfortable and the breakfast was delicious. The staff were helpful and efficient. There was a bus stop close by making it easy to get into Oxford and it was close to Brooks university. We also appreciated the off road parking and good wi fi connection. Our room... More

We stayed one night at the Conifers, the room was at the top side of the house and although small it met our needs, the double glazing does the job too :) the host was friendly and efficient and made no bones when we pointed out that we had no milk, the fire alarm was being tested which interupted out...

This was conveniently located for us; however, £90 per night plus 2% for using a credit card for a tiny room seems too high a price for this establishment. We were asked to change rooms for the second night. The second was a slightly larger room at front of house. Closed windows shut out road noise. Rooms were very clean,... More

Stayed for 1 night only in August (we booked a tour around the Mini plant and this place is very near to the factory). We telephoned the owner on the way to Oxford and asked if we could check in early, which was no problem. We arrived at about 10.30 AM and were able to park the car off road... More

I spent one night in this guest house int room 1. I was allocated room 11, but the owner ask me to change so two friend families could be next to each other. I kindly accepted and change to room 1. What a mistake. This room has a huge bay window directly on the main road. Fast cars are passing... More

I am sorry to learn that you did not sleep well. I would like to thank you for moving to room 1 to accommodate my request. However, I would like to point out that the room has triple glazed windows and with the windows shut, the traffic noise cuts out completely. There is a table fan provided in the room... More
