We booked a six night stay at Lakeside and knowing that we would be arriving late at night (11 pm) we asked the proprietor if this would be a problem. We were assured that it would be okay. However on arrival, the code which we had been given for the secure box where the door key was located didn't work... More

Booked a short break here with my sister and her husband. They arrived two nights before us. The hosts knew we would be arriving very late evening and gave them a key code number to let themselves in. The number did not work. There was no way to contact the owners who did not answer the bell or the phone.... More

The guest house is perfectly located and great if you have a young family. It is clean, has generously sized rooms and the owner/staff are lovely. There is a wonderful park next door with a small lake, outdoor heated pool and play area. We will defintely be staying here again!

We stayed at the Lakeside for 2 nights from 29th June 2015. It's quite easy to find, just head south on the Abingdon Road for about 15 minutes, past the Folly Bridge, or if you prefer any bus that goes along this road, for a couple of stops. Taxis are about a fiver. The guest house is located next to... More

Their room with "private bath" means a stumble down the dark hall and down some stairs. With key in hand. We found it completely unacceptable. Parking very difficult. No lake in sight. We paid a penalty to escape. Extremely steep stairs to upper rooms.

Located in a leafy, quiet part of Oxford and it is a real gem. Having only a short trip to Oxford for an interview I arrived early to drop off my luggage, only to find that my room was already ready for me which was amazing. The room looked really welcoming, clean and bright; the bed felt like a cloud... More

We stayed here for 1 night as we had been given a river cruise boat trip as a gift so the guesthouse is very conveniently located near to where you go on the boat trips. Actually its only really a 10 minute walk to the centre of Oxford and even closer to the river walk so a really great location.... More

The three nights we recently spent at the Lakeside guest house were most enjoyable. Our en suite room was spotless, light, airy and very well appointed. Breakfast provided a wide choice of fruit and cereals etc with the cooked options prepared to order. Bacon and sausages were top quality with as much tea,coffee and toast as you wanted. The owners...

We were given a room at the top of the back stairs (Room 8) which was very comfortable, clean and quiet. I kinda expected a lake, but I suppose this does not figure into my commentary as it was too cold to enjoy it anyway, but the name seems curious. Breakfast was very good, served in a nice little room... More

Stayed for 2 nights recently and it was fine. Were given an upgrade as rooms were available. The double room we were to have as a couple was given to my son and we were relieved as the 'private bathroom' was down a flight of stairs and not, as I perhaps might have expected, next door, for those trips to...
