I stayed here last week for Oxford UNIQ's summer school, sleeping in the Frewin annexe and eating in the main Brasenose dining hall. Our rooms were reasonably sized and cleaned regularly. Some had en suites, but even those that did not only had to share...More

This place is unbelievable, right out of a storybook. The college functions as a B&B during the summer months, and the price and location and friendly staff and VIEW can’t be beat. As I sat in my student room on the old quad, a young...More

Renowned for its "hearties" when I was at the Varsity. In the old days, many a saunter on the High would end here, with a delightful dash around the quad, chasing some bookish swot. Amazing views from the quad, over Radcliffe Camera. Famous old boys...More
