We called in late in the day, with no ide of the quality of the guest house. The welcome was warm and very helpful. The room was on the top floor was quiet and very well presented, with separate bathroom facilities which where of a high quality. We left our car in their car park after advice from the host... More

Booked through hotels.com on 1 June for 2-night stay commencing 27 June. Got immediate confirmation. Follow-up email on 24 June reminded me there were only 3 days to go and my booking was guaranteed. Then the bombshell on 26 June: an email from "lodgops@expedia.com" jointly branded Expedia and Hotels.com saying "This is an urgent message regarding your reservation with Lakeside... More

The room was spacious, attractively decorated. Clean and comfortable. Great breakfasts. Warm hosting. Location superb, 15 minutes walk into the centre of town. It was clear we would pay a lot for in town parking. But we left our car in the car park of the Guest House and walked in. Would certainly recommend it.

It was our first trip to Oxford and we wanted somewhere close to the city . The Lakeside fitted the bill. We could leave our car there just before we booked in and after we had booked out. The room was light, airy and really clean. The breakfast was good and overall it was good value for money. We would... More

My fiance and I had a great stay at the guest house. We were supposed to arrive on a Monday however the bank holiday delayed us and we had to call them to move the booking out to Tuesday. Not only were they very accommodating, they gave us a better room as well. The room was great, very clean, warm... More

We were welcomed and shown into a beautifully decorated spacious bedroom with every amenity one could wish for. There was a plentiful supply of towels and toiletries and tea and coffee and biscuits. Breakfast was wonderful. Large choice and beautifully cooked. The guest house was so well located : next door to a lovely park and within walking distance to... More

When we arrived, we rang the door. A young woman met us, gave us the keys, and then disappeared. We did not see anyone except in the mornings at breakfast. We had to bring our luggage all the way up to the top floor. Our room was very small with sloped ceilings and a small door. We travelled with our... More

I could find absolutely no fault (not that I was trying) with this guest house. The room was beautifully decorated and meticulously appointed - everything was "just so" when we arrived, and again the next evening when we returned from our day out. The owners have thought of everything - a chilled bottle of water, a chocolate on the hospitality... More

I remember going here when I was young and I had an amazing time. The beds were very comfortable and the owners were very friendly. The rooms looked gorgeous and the view was beautiful. I reccomend to everyone.

Found this hotel last minute through a hotel booking site and decided to contact the owner directly to ask for the cheapest rate that could be offered. I reckon I definitely saved money making the booking this way. The hotel was easy to find and had a small but useful car park. The location was excellent as we were able... More
