Let's start with a few positives. This property is well located being only a 10 minute bus journey into the centre of Oxford. We received a warm and friendly welcome from the Day Manager Peter and breakfast the following morning was varied and of high quality. However I have struggled to find enough positives to give this property even a... More

Pros.. off road parking. On welcome we were given fresh milk to have a cup of tea. Cons ... creaky bed, no information in room so saw no Wi-Fi code, tv reception rubbish so probably needed a code to get stations. When we looked for staff to help, no-one around. One set of shower gel/shampoo for 2 people. Breakfast service... More

We lived on the first floor. The room is big enough but interior decoration is a bit old. If you want trying English style room, you will be satisfied. The breakfast is good but no restaurant nearby. Also far away from city centre. 2-3 stars maximum.

Clean rooms with a good english breakfast but the decor is very severties and it needs a makeover.Friendly hosts and good guest service. My bed was uncomfortable which didnt give a great nights sleep. Limited parking was very welcome and a good location for bus travel to the centre of oxford. I wondered about the 4 star rating. Think i... More

The master bed in our room was in terrible condition. Every time one of us moved, it felt like an earthquake tremor! The single beds were in better condition though. The shower cubicle was extremely tight even for a person like me weighing less than 50kg. Maybe it was just the room provided to us but it was definitely not... More

This place is old and grungy! Not a place I felt comfortable in with my family. The place has an awful odour, old beds and pillows. We couldn't wait to get out so didn't even have breakfast. Easy location to get to by car. Not many places to eat nearby if you arrive late. The owner also didn't have any... More

We stayed here during a short visit to Oxford and we had a wonderful stay at Cotswold House. There was a friendly welcome and a nice intro to our room which I have to say was a great space to relax in. Let's talk about the room, we had a large ground floor room which had a lounge area with... More

We recently were on business in the UK and stayed at Cotswold House for several nights. The location was amazing as it was right in Summertown, Oxford, close to shopping, historical buildings and attractions. Cotswold House is a lovely building kept in very clean shape. One of the most important things for us when we travel on business is to... More

I don't normally leave bad reviews but I can't understand how this place is four stars! It's so so dated (I think my grandma was in a more modern care home) and even smells like an old people's home - you could get over this part if you weren't too fussy but it didn't feel overly clean, with stained old...
