I stayed in Keble College with my 8 year old grandson last week and can't think of a better way to introduce a young man to life as a student in Oxford. We loved being surrounded by the walls of such a prestigious and ancient College. The room was spotless and the bathroom more than adequate compared to what the... More

After finding it difficult to find a suitable hotel in a central location in Oxford, someone suggested staying at Keble. I was very pleasantly surprised when I arrived to find the beautiful quad, grounds and buildings and even more pleased when I arrived at my room which was spotlessly clean with lovely toiletries/tea/coffee/hot chocolate/biscuits and everything one could need.

I had an amazing 2-night stay at Keble College while in Oxford. In fact, I liked it so much, I fit one more night in later on in my trip. The accommodations are excellent - spacious, comfy, clean, and quiet - and the location is great; it's only a short walk to Broad and High Streets and a short cab... More

Made me nostalgic for my good old college days. We had a double room with en suite bathroom on the third floor facing the quad. It was great and quite comfortable. It's basic, but they provide you with everything you need, including toiletries and a nice tea set. Everything what spotless and it almost looked as though we were the... More

Another College with beautiful grounds. Very peaceful setting even though students were about. The College Chapel is a must and a chance to see a painting that shouldn't be missed. Very moving. Sit for a while and reflect before carrying on with your visit.

This seems to be by far the best place to stay if you want to experience Oxford. The walk to the downtown is around 1.5 KM, but that's OK. The college itself is pretty big, the classic Liddon Quad and the apple trees are a treat to the eyes. The dining hall is the longest in Oxford and was featured... More

We stayed in the old building, which is positively laden with tradition. Our twin room was spacious and well-appointed, although the beds could have been firmer. Despite the porter's warning that Wifi might be unreliable at our room, we found it to be stable and very fast. A wired LAN connection is also available. There are no lifts in the... More

I've stayed here a few times on business trips to Oxford. It's a fantastic place to stay, especially if you get a quad facing room. Breakfast in the hall is excellent - a bit of a Harry Potter experience - and the staff very attentive and friendly. Admittedly, the rooms themselves are fairly institutionalised, but this is typically what you'd... More

It is nice to experience staying in student's accommodation. There are lots of things to see in Keble. The College chapel is a great place. It has kill many of my photos. The College ground is full of flowers and in a sunny day it's a great enjoyment. The en-suite room is a bit small for a couple. The shower... More

Though being just a tourist, you can pride yourself as a part of Oxford when you stay at Kable College . Clean specious rooms, with lot of space for luggage, storage and writing and reading too! The large old table and stately chair entices you to be an Oxford Scholar. The place is a very convenient to find out. it... More
