I chose Lakeside based on Tripadvisor reviews and the free parking, which is important if visiting Oxford. The room was clean, breakfast was fine, staff were pleasant. It is a convenient 15/20 minutes walk into Oxford. Rooms closest to the road are affected by the noise of the traffic.

Nice guesthouse. Spacious room on the first floor, clean and comfortable. Excellent breakfast (full English breakfast - there is also a vegetarian version). Located close to the city centre, within walking distance (about 20 minutes walk). Good value for money.

Our second stay at Lakeside Guest House. We stayed on ground floor in a beautiful on suit room, which was very spacious with charming period features and tastefully decorated. The staff and owners are always very friendly, helpful and good fun. We would recommend to anyone visiting Oxford and surrounding areas.

My family and I were staying for 7 days. After a big, warm welcome we were immediately able to go into our room. The family ensuite was big enough for the three of us (3 adults) and everything looks exactly as shown on the pictures on their website. The bathroom, and the room in general, is squeaky clean and gets... More

While visiting Oxford we stayed at the Guesthouse. The GH was simply superb. The staff consisting of innkeepers Martin & Danielle were most accommodating. They immediately changed our room to the first floor from the third, since it was obvious I could not carry up our baggage. The room we had was #1 and while it was on the Main... 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
