Spent a weekend at Wadham College when visiting Oxford for a conference located at another one of the colleges. Lovely place to stay and would return. Staff could not have been more helpful, breakfast was excellent and the accommodation silent and well equipped. Highly recommended.

Was part of a business trip held on the site and also booked to stay within the college. Rooms are basic but fitting with the surroundings and have everything you need. Food was absolutely first class and the service and staff, excellent.

Wonderful university buildings around a well tended main quad. With a beautiful chapel and gardens. Dating from the early 1600's the architecture is beautiful. Attended by Sir Christopher Wren.

If you go to the Wadham College website, click on the 'Visit us' tab, then the 'Staying and entertaining' tab (just under the main picture showing blossom in the quad) and then click on the 'Bed and Breakfast' link.
