Fairly basic rooms - a table lamp between the twin beds would have been nice as there is only one central light in the room. The room was hot and stuffy so we had to leave the window open throughout our stay. Having said that the highlight was the great hall where you have breakfast. On the last day we... More

A chance to have a genuine Oxford experience, living in a college with breakfast at the High Table but with much more comfort than in my student days! Lovely en suite room, Internet access, tea & coffee - no TV but good desk and cupboard space. I would return if I ever have a study or writing project to work... More

We recently spent a night staying at Keble as part of our UK experience. Wanting to experience as many different B & B's as we could, we liked the idea of staying at such an iconic place, and we were blown away with the College. Simple, clean and functional rooms, opened out onto the beautiful grounds with the most amazing... More

We were in Oxford for only one night and had found that most hotels were very expensive. Then we found that we could stay in the student residences of colleges and thought that this would be a real Oxford experience. And it was, indeed! Keble is within walking distance from the bus (coach) station, and a little further away from... More

To stay at Keble College is to experience a tiny bit of what it might be like to be a student there. The buildings themselves, centred around the quad, are beautiful and a breath-taking setting. Once you step through the very old doorway to the Porters Lodge an almost reverent hush descends on you. The rooms are definitely students rooms,... More

A delightful stay at Keble, excellent breakfast in Harry Potter like dining room and friendly helpful staff at Porter's lodge. Close to town shops as well. The only downside was not having wifi in the rooms - difficult for work. If you need to use the Internet in the room, you need to bring your own cable.

I was in Oxford for a conference a week before, and stayed at Mansfield College. I spent a week in Cardiff on another work assignment and returned to Oxford for a weekend of rest, relaxation and catching up with old friends. I decided to stay at Keble College instead, because of the good reviews here. I was not disappointed! I... More

The room carpet was filthy (looked like construction had taken place on it!), the mattress was lumpy and ancient, but the location was perfect -- a 10-minute walk from the conference I was there to attend and very quiet at night, despite leaving the window open. Take note, there's no in-room wi-fi and although the website says they provide hairdyers,... More

There is no better place to pretend you are an Oxford undergraduate than a stay here. I was lucky enough to get a large room overlooking the quad, with an en suite and even a little dressing room in between. My desk overlooked the Quad in the sunshine: I could happily have stayed here for 3 years or more. Everything... More
