Thought this would be fun but have mixed emotions. The room was ok. It was very hot and we slept with the window open. We could not control the heat in the room or the bathroom. Bathroom looked very dirty but the vanity was stained. The sink was very dirty-we could feel the scum. We had to eat in a... More

My girlfriend and I had planned on a 2 night trip to Oxford in September, and at the last minute extended it to 3 nights. Since there were no double/twin rooms available for the third night, we got two single dorms at Jesus College. Oxford University lodgings tends to fall into two categories: "historic" rooms - by which is typically... More

Absolutely wonderful and brilliant way to see the area in an authentic and atmospheric way. The room was real modern and were even possessing toiletries which for a university is very impressive - even if it is Oxford. Attention to detail was lovely plus breakfast very satisfactory with a lot of choice. For the price and location it really wasn't... More

We enjoyed our tour of Christ Church College, Oxford University. A bunch of stuff for Harry Potter fans and a lot of tradition. We did this as part of a tour and everyone was very satisfied with what we get to see.

The Quads of Jesus College are an oasis of calm right in the centre of Oxford. Rooms are basic but have all required facilities - but it's not really the room you stay here for, it's the overall ambience, the history and the central location of this lovely old Oxford college. We had a good breakfast in the lovely old... More

Stayed as a couple and really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was simple but clean and warm and more than sufficient for our needs. It was a shared bathroom for 2 rooms but nobody was in the other room so it was fine. There was a bit of noise from a alley that ran behind the back of the room... More

Stayed in modern student room, maybe ten years old, with en suite bathroom, right in the centre of Oxford - you are literally one minute's walk away from the pedestrian Cornmarket. Everything clean and efficient, including, crucially, the shower and the wifi. Big bed, almost big enough for two! No service as such, but very good. There is a lift.... More

For anyone who wants a "behind the scenes" experience of life in one of the oldest and most interesting Oxford University Colleges, similar in many respects to that of a typical undergraduate student, an overnight stay in Jesus College is an absolute must! Founded by Queen Elizabeth 1st on 27th June, 1571, to provide higher education for the people of... More

I went with a group from the Women's Institute. We looked at the library and quads and were given an interesting talk about the library and the college history and ethos. If you're interested in architecture and history this has it all. The lunch in the hall was very good and what a place to eat, just like being at... More

I would stay there again because one just cannot beat the location. When you make a reservation, you think you are going to stay in beautiful old Jesus College.. Not so, they put you in a remodeled building in a back alley behind the beautiful quadrangles. Eatng breakfast in the hall is very pleasant except that the eggs are always... More
