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

This is a very basic dorm room accommodation but for the price and the location it can't be beat. The front desk staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and the shower water is hot. The included breakfast is in the college dining room with is reminiscent of Harry Potter and has a limited selection of hot and cold items.... More

Firstly - the good points: excellent location; nice complimentary tea-tray; good breakfast and very helpful staff. Secondly - my original booking was for a single, non-ensuite room. Although I'd requested a quiet room (as I was there on business) it turned out that all of these rooms were in a block facing a road on one side and the bar... More

Stayed 2 nights (Friday, Saturday) for a family wedding in the centre of Oxford. As a former student of the college I get a modest discount. The room was basic but generously sized. Only real complaints were a slightly lumpy mattress and no teaspoon with the tea and coffee making facilities. Our room faced on to Parks Road rather then... More

Attended conference in beautiful Oxford. The college was a fun experience, but I would not stay here again. It was "clean-like", staff mostly friendly, breakfast decent. The grounds were lovely and the breakfast-hall gave a Harry Potter experience.

What a privilege to stay in such a stunning place, rooms were a little old fashioned but you would expect this given the age of the college. Staff were excellent and the food was superb, bar was dirt cheap too! Only criticism would be the wifi as was non existent in rooms unless outside.

After a week of bed and breakfasts in Inns and B&Bs Keble was a quirky alternative stay that really paid off. The "check in" was friendly and simple. The quad facing room was simple but very nice and well prepared. The atmosphere was quiet, and the surroundings beautiful. We explored the chapel and the famous Holman Hunt painting. As an... More

You can't argue with the comments made about the main quadrangle which includes most of the rooms, I think, and the dining hall - these are very impressive. The main reason this gets only an average rating for me is that our room was a bit grim. It was not in the main building, but in a modern annex at... More
