Just returned from staying at Lakeside Guesthouse; good situation - we were able to park our car at the house and walk into Oxford (both in our 70s) Our room was very comfortable and clean and we really appreciated the central heating and the lovely hot shower. Breakfast was very varied and generous. We would definately recommend staying at Lakeside.... More

Had a wonderful stay at this little gem. Welcoming staff and we booked a family room for 2 of us, as that was all that was left and it was a great size!! Lovely and warm and bed really comfy. Walked to Oxford in around 15 min and parking in the small carpark in front of the hotel. Would definately... More

The owner & staff are welcoming and accomodationg, the rooms/ decor & facilities are excellent and exceeded my expectations for a guest house. Breakfast lovely & very good quality & service.

I was in Oxford for an interview and found the Lakeside Guesthouse a fantastic place to stay. The rooms were very comfortable and I got a very nice sleep followed by a full English for breakfast. It is a short walk (about ten minutes) from the town centre so I had time to lie in before going to my college... More

I enjoyed my stay at Lakeside very much. I loved the fact that I could check in in the morning as I had just arrived on an overnight flight, and could unpack and have a nap. I was in a single, and it suited me fine, plus it was quiet and had a comfortable bed. Lakeside is a short walk... More

We checked in on 4th December at the recommended time as mentioned on their website. We were given room 6 which was right at the top (attic) of the house. The room is lovely except for the low ceiling at certain points where we ended up bumping our heads if we were not careful. The bathroom was privated but not... More

We wanted somewhere in Oxford where we could leave the car & explore on foot. The car park is not huge but big enough. Lakeside is only a short walk to the town and its attractions. On the day we arrived we used the Wi-Fi to plan what to do on the next day. Daniela was very welcoming. A hearty... More

Travelled with my parents and husband and we all found the rooms to be well decorated and very clean. The breakfast was very nice and enough choice was offered. Short walk to the city centre and the canals. Shame they do not offer an evening meal option! We will use Lakeside again.

sometimes i feel that people make difference if one books things via booking.com or other sites... in any case, we were well treated BUT we stayed all way up the stairs, in a two-single bed room (instead of a double bed). The bathroom was one floor down, and very small. On the other hand, everything was very clean, smelling nice... More

This b&b feels home for me and my husband, during the last 3 years. We have been there many times and as long as our son lives in the beautiful city of Oxford, we will come back with pleasure. Daniela and Martin and the other people working in the guesthouse are always friendly and doing their best to give the... More
