We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom in the Longwall Annex, just around the corner from the High Street entrance to Magdalen College. Our room was clean and neat, with nice bedding and toiletries. Although there was no TV, we didn't miss it for the 2 days we were here -- we went to a concert and... More

I was very surprised after a very long trip to arrive at my accommodation in Waynflete to find a shabby room with a very dirty carpet, and 1 of the 2 toilets on my floor broken. The rest of the bathroom was not very clean either, with bathmats apparently used over and over. In the 3 days I spent there,... More

Waynflete student accommodation is not the sort of thing you see on Inspector Morse--no beautiful quad guarded by an avuncular porter. It is actually across the bridge from the college proper, on top of a Sainsbury's--which is convenient. The rooms are classic British scrubby but functional. They are clean and certainly fit for purpose. Bathrooms are shared--men and women together.

The Waynflete accommodation is above Sainsbury but this is better than it sounds!! This basic student room is great if all you are doing is sleeping there and sight seeing or conferencing. There are no frills but it is clean and the single bed was comfortable. Bathrooms are down the corridor but the room has tea and coffee makings and... More

This is a wonderful place to stay because of the architecture and the stunning views of the college. The accommodation itself is absolutely fine as well, but fairly standard. My partner and I were there for a conference, and found the room cozy and clean. That being said, we had to sleep in separate beds in the room, and I... More

The web description promised towels and an elevator. There were no towels until the third night of our four-night stay. There was no usable elevator; the elevator was full of trash, but we were allowed to use it to lift our luggage up two flights. This, plus the unexpected fact that the "ground" floor was one flight up, made us... More

I'm afraid we do not state we have an elevator. There is a goods lift but this is not advertised. More

Assuming you want the full Oxford 'experience', be sure to book rooms in the main building and not in Waynflete, which is a separate, modern block just over the river. Cheaper, but without any of the atmosphere. We had a rather mixed time at Magdalen, having booked 3 single rooms for an overnight stay on a cycling trip. First we... More

We stayed here for two nights during a conference we were organising in the college. Our accommodation was in the newer Grove Building and, as a couple, we had a twin bedded room (most rooms in the college are of course singles). All the rooms in the Grove Building are ensuite and the accommodation was what you would expect in... More

Booked a night in the Waynflete building whilst visiting Oxford what a let down. I can't imagine what the poor students think when they arrive at such an establishment considering some of them are from wealthy families and others would pay a high price to study and stay at such a well known college. Surprised there is no preventative maintenance... More

I booked a room at Magdalen because my friend who was getting married went to this college. When I checked in at the college "porter", they handed me some keys and informed me that I was staying in a building across the bridge from the rest of the college (the beautiful part), in a modern building and, not a joke,...
