We stayed there for 1 night during Thanksgiving week. The location is great for visiting Oxford and Ole Miss etc. The place just seemed a little tired, got the impression that it had been a great B'n'B a few years back but that maybe it just going through the motions now. Difficult to put a finger on it! Breakfast wasn't... More

The 5 Twelve is not only conveniently located to the town square, but it's just far enough away to be able to relax and have some peace and quiet. Sit on the large porch with a drink or kick back inside with some friends and certainly don't miss the home southern breakfast.

This was one of the biggest disappointments of our 3 week tour of the South East. There was a complete lack of hospitality - something you expect when you stay in a BnB. The room was very small and plain. Breakfast was fairly poor. The fruit on the fruit plate was mostly brown. It was basic and budget. For the... More

Not only is the location ideal, but the warmth and inviting ambience is also present. This historical home has lots of charm but has also been renovated without destroying its historical value. Although there are areas that need attention, our room and bathroom was extremely comfortable for today's savvy traveler. Keith, the owner is very accommodating We really enjoyed our... More

Great location, walking distance to Ole Miss and the Historic Square. Southern hospitality to its finest. Keith, the owner, is a fantastic guy. Wonderful breakfast. Staying here has the feel of living as a local in Oxford. Room #6 on the top floor is where I stayed, and it was perfect. Great service all around. If you need a place... More

Gracious people; nice suite. It must have been close to 100 degrees during our visit but the place was cool and welcoming. Nice southern breakfast provided the next morning--cooked to order. Lovely people. The rates go sky high during football weekends--if you're planning a non-Ole Miss visit during the fall better check around that. The football weekend rates were actually... More

Oxford is an amazing town so this B&B offers you walking distance to an enjoyable experience . We go to many bed and breakfasts so in comparing this for the price, we found it coming up short . The personal touch didn't exist. The room was nice and roomy, but the shower was very awkward, bathroom door wouldn't latch and... More

This was my first experience staying at a B&B, so I really didn't know what to expect. The owner, Keith, met us at the front door, and instantly made us feel so welcome. Our room was very spacious (we stayed in room #1) and SO COMFORTABLE! It was by far the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. We... More

The 5 Twelve Bed & Breakfast was fabulous. When we arrived we were met by the owner Keith who was very gracious and provided a tour of his B&B with great pride. Our 2 night stay was extremely comfortable and the breakfast staff was very friendly. The location is fabulous, only a very short 5 minute walk, maybe less to... More

The 5 Twelve is an easy walk from Courthouse Square, the home of lots of interesting places to visit; so, if that's your destination,the 5 Twelve is your place to stay. Unlike other B&Bs we have stayed in, it is more like a business than a family setting. The bed is exceptionally comfortable and our room attractive, though neither room... More
