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

I stayed here for four nights whilst attending a conference in the city. As soon as I arrived I was struck by the beauty and impressiveness of the buildings - if nothing else, this was a wonderful opportunity to stay at one of the prestigious Oxford colleges, which is quite a special experience. My room was large, with a relatively... More

My husband and I rented an en suite student room in Keble College Oxford and were so impressed. Our view was into the central courtyard and the college's lovely buildings. The Light Of The World is in the Keble College Chapel and open to visitors. The hot breakfast was delicious and served in a dining hall that looked straight out... More

I recently stayed at Keble College. When I arrived, shortly before a large wedding took place in College, the Porter's Lodge staff were very busy; however, when it came to my turn, I was treated with great courtesy and efficiency. My ground-floor room faced Liddon Quad which had the misfortune to provide little privacy during the day and was quite... More

Via University Rooms online we booked this dorm room (ensuite) stay at Keble. It was very simple and clean, well located, and offered a good breakfast in Keble’s great hall! Keble is lovely red brick with gorgeous “chapel” and has a “bar” for relaxing and TV. Parking is Oxford is difficult. University Rooms offers similar accommodation throughout Britain and beyond.

You'll get a clean room and all what you need to be able to get a good nights sleep. The room is basic and without TV. But there is free wifi (after a long registration process at the college's IT-departments page) and all other things you need. There are decent parking possibilities nearby but it is a pay-and-display parking on... More

Stayed at dramatic Keble College whilst at Oxford conference. Breakfast hall was amazing - Harry Potterish if you know what I mean. Amazing. Sat outside and did a couple of drawings, I was so impressed. What a great place.
