We booked a night at 5 Twelve before realising that it was the day before the Ole Miss game. So we were pleasantly surprised to get such a friendly welcome and realise that, despite the fact that the B&B is only a long street away from the centre of a crowded Oxford, it is a haven of peace and quiet....

Location can't be beat. quiet street, yet walking distance to shops,restaurants, and campus. Perhaps (owner? Manager? ) Keith was tuckered out by the big game Saturday, but our Monday afternoon reception was lackadaisical, far from the hospitality one hopes for in the South or in a room one is paying real money for. A key had been left on thy... More

The last time my wife and I stayed overnight on the Ole Miss campus in Oxford, Mississippi, in 2003, we had tickets for the Alabama/Ole Miss football game and Eli Manning threw two touchdown passes in the closing minutes to win the game. We stayed at the old Britt-Oliver Bed and Breakfast on Van Buren, halfway between the Ole Miss... More

Upon transferring to The University of Mississippi, my family and I Stayed at this B&B. I enjoyed every minute of it. We also came back a second time. There are I believe about 6 different rooms, all decorated differently. The staff was so sweet, and the breakfast they made in the morning was great! It is perfect walking distance to... More

We spent one night on an overnight trip to Oxford in June 2014. This is a very quaint place to stay, clean and close to the square. It was a fun trip and we would stay there agin. You can walk to town and to the campus of ole Miss.

Just stayed for the first time during my daughters Orientation. Keith and his staff are wonderful! Sad we missed the breakfast! It sounded amazing. Next time...because there will be many visits in the future.

My son and I called at the last minute for a king size room and lucked up that it was a slow Tuesday night. We turned out to be the only guests that evening. We were in room 2 which was lovely and very comfortable. The home cooked breakfast was divine!

Stayed overnight for a college visit at Ole Miss. Beautiful home in a friendly neighborhood. Loved everything about the stay. Room 6 is the converted attic. Queen on one end, twin on the other, galley with seating in between. Only one bathroom, a bit tight, but with a full bath. May be a bit warm in summer, but has two... More

This is the perfect location to visit Oxford. Walk to the Square and to campus. We barely moved the car. Don't expect fancy at this B&B, rooms are small and basic but clean. Breakfast was standard. Wished they had started serving earlier than 8:30 am though! Staff was friendly. If you're visiting Oxford, this is the place to stay!

This large house is located on a quiet residential street halfway between town square and the university. About a 10-15 minute walk to both. This old house seems to have undergone a major renovation not too long ago. We never saw the owners when we were there; only the working staff who were all nice. The room was clean and... More
