Pre booked this accommodation which is easily accessed from London on Abingdon Rd. Nothing fancy on arrival just shown our room and left to our own devices after being told breakfast was 8 - 9am. Found the bus stopped right at the front and the return stop was opposite which was great to access Oxford in less than 10 mins.... More

Bearing in mind that it is a BB, it's a bit overpriced. The room was clean and comfortable, but the bathroom was a bit old-fashioned, with cheap modernisations. The landlord and the landlady were very friendly and helpful. If the weather is nice, it's better to walk to the city centre. I call a taxi and it took 20 minutes... More

The two nights spent at Green Gables were very comfortable, and the Guest House was well situated, clean and friendly. The Landlord and landlady were friendly and helpful and my stay there was good value for money. There is ample safe, off-road parking, and it takes about 20 minutes to walk into Oxford from the Guest House. There is a... More

This is a very nice BB on a busy road leading into the centre of Oxford city centre. The decor is clean and rooms appear well looked after. The owners are justifieabley proud of the establishment and of thier business. They sport accreditations on the dining room walls and are very good at what they do. My stay was for... More

A bit out of town, the breakfast room isn't large enough for everyone, furniture and bathroom is cheap and poorly constructed. The place smells a bit strange and is loud from the street side. Food is OK and there is a back solarium and a small yard to sit if the weather permits.

This is a decent Bed and Breakfast establishment, about two km from Oxford City Centre. For the price, it's possibly one of the best value offers that close to the City. It is served by buses travelling to and from Oxford Rail Station. It has guest parking if travelling by car. The rooms offer everything for the needs of the... More

GreenGables is in an excellent location being only a 20 minute walk into the centre of Oxford yet at a very affordable price. The room is compact and the shower lacks water pressure but the breakfast is great and as I said the location makes up for the shortcomings

My room was adequate, but the bathroom really did need modernisation, updating and a good clean. Not a great welcome from the owners - I felt like a five pound note passing through, but the breakfast staff were friendly and attentive. .

Plus points - close to the centre, lots of buses from just outside. Negative points - Not worth £100. Poor bed, old mattress, generally much more tored than the photo's suggest. Curtains in the bedroom missing rings so didn't cover windows fully, curtain material very thin so whole room was lit up at sunrise. Breakfast was just passable,but cheapest of... More

Nice welcome. Room was tired bed needs a new mattress my back is killing me. Bathroom needs a good clean shower mat was filthy underneath. Shower curtain is old and tired. Bulb out on ceiling light. Breakfast starts at 7.30 till 8.30 think it could be extended till 9.30 at least. Apart from that pleasant place.
