Fabulous place, beautifully appointed, modern amenities, super-friendly staff. Air conditioning, everything is clean and well maintained. USB 2.1 A outlets and free drinks. Walking in 12 minutes to downtown Oxford. Private parking. Will certainly come here again.

I stayed at the Oxford Townhouse for 10 nights in July and can't say enough about this fantastic B and B! A friend and I were in town for a week seminar. We each had a single room on the top floor. While the single rooms are quite small, we made them work. On check out, we were shown the... More

Newly renovated space was extremely comfortable and staff couldn't have been more helpful. Road construction around Oxford made GPS a necessity, but the proximity to the center (10-15 min walk) was ideal. We used it as a base to explore the Cotswolds, Blenheim Palace and the filming sites for Midsommer Murders and Downton Abbey. The history surrounding places like Wallingford... More

We truly appreciated to stay in this comfortable, clean and well kept b&b. Our room was spatious overlooking a sportsfield. Free cold drinks, tea, coffee and chocolates as well as bisquits in the room added extra comfort. The bathroom was lovely and we had bathrobes to use. The walk to the city center was less than 10 minutes and our... More

Loved, loved, loved this B&B. our stay here far exceeded our expectations. It was conveniently located about 10 minutes from the center of town. virtually all attractions were within walking distance. close to shops, restaurants, bars/pubs, scenery etc. The hotel itself was well appointed. Very modernly renovated/updated inside. Great air conditioner (which was very welcome due to the heat), heated... More

The room at this townhouse was worth every penny (pound) for those wanting to stay close to the city centre of Oxford. There is free parking at the rear of the townhouse, a wonderful selection for breakfast (free), free Wi-Fi, soda, water and coffee available in the room. The staff was exceptional, so friendly and helpful. I would recommend this... More

This B&B is excellent and cannot be faulted in any way. It is exceptionally clean, serviced daily and very helpful, friendly staff. Nothing is a problem for them. When we arrived the Internet wasn't working for us so they called in an IT to sort it out. They were doing an upgrade and all was back to normal very quickly.... More

We came away for a weekend to explore Oxford and were so glad we chose this place. Friendly, helpful staff, beautiful accommodation and a great location, close enough to walk into Oxford but on a main bus route. Breakfast is amazing too! We will be returning.

Situated 15 min walk from the centre of Oxford, this B & B sets the standard that all other B & B's (and hotels) should aspire to. From the initial reception to the farewell, service and facilities are perfect. Recently renovated, Oxford Townhouse ticks every box.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Oxford Townhouse is a new hotel opened in February 2016. It is designed specifically for those who look for hotel-type facilities, such as air conditioning, but are reluctant to spend money on features they do not need. With only 15 rooms we are small enough to appreciate you as an individual but large enough to provide a reception service from 07:00 to 22:30. Throughout the design our emphasis has been on magnifying natural light using a repetitive colour palette of whites, beige, soft greys and cool blues with the occasional use of darker earthy shades of charcoal, brown, navy and black to create visual interest. We have tried to use natural materials from ceramic, wood and stone to tactile linen, wool and felt. Window treatments are simple and pared back to let in as much light as possible. We have three types of room, with 2 singles, 8 classic double/twin rooms and 5 superior double rooms. All rates include complimentary English breakfast and on-site car parking. Standard Room Facilities En-suite shower rooms Air conditioning Mini bar with complimentary soft drinks Laptop safe Electronic door locks Free Wi-Fi Large-screen LED SmartTV Hair-dryer USB charging points Large full-length mirror Tea & coffee making facilities Superior Room Facilities Our Superior Rooms are larger, offer all the standard facilities and the following additions: Easy chairs Desk and chair King-size bed Nespresso machine Rain showers Although our hotel is new, it is housed in 2 late-Victorian houses without a lift. We have 3 floors of rooms and breakfast is in the semi basement and additionally there are 8 steps to the front door. Although we can offer assistance with luggage we are not a full-service hotel so you need to take into account the potential logistical difficulties when you book. ... more   less
