Friendly reception. Disappointed with the standard of the room and en suite in terms of the quality of furnishings and fittings both of which could be enhanced at a fairly modest cost. However, the continental breakfast exceeded our expectations with a good choice of fresh foods.

Lovely from the front and average inside but clean and cosy room. The owner was not really present upon arrival which was good at first (after a long drive and not really wanting the usual chit chat) but we could have done with a heads-up on the breakfast situation. The room was small but still nice with shared bathroom which... More

Hey! We really liked our stay! Arrived quite late, exhausted and nearly dead. But the next morning the manager lady got us back on our feet with a good breakfast and some nice words. We enjoyed it and shortly after we moved on to London, good stay all in all.

On a busy road but with off street parking, this guest house is clean, unpretentious and professionally friendly. Rooms are small, but with reasonably comfortable beds. Breakfast offers a generous selection.

I had a single room overlooking the main road. The traffic was not an issue for me. The room itself was very clean & presentable with a T.V and a kettle. The bed was very comfortable and I slept all night no problem. For an overnight stop it was perfect Continental Breakfast was plenty and with a lot of choice.... More

This guest house seems to cost a little more than it should, but Oxford is an expensive university town. The owners are helpful and welcoming and the included breakfast is adequate to keep you going til lunch time. Our room was on the front on a busy street and though we slept with the windows cracked (no air conditioning), the... More

Ideal for short breaks, quiet, the staff makes everything possible to make you happy. Only a couple of rooms have private bathroom. While it needs renewal the room is cozy and the small garden on its back relaxing

7 of us stayed at the guest house for my brother in law's stag doo. The guest house was very welcoming and friendly and I was pleasantly surprised by the two family rooms that we occupied. The rooms were clean and tidy and our room had an ensuite bathroom and direct access outside via patio doors which was a nice... More

Room was ok. But come on, this is a B&B! No cooked options. The breakfast bar is an unappealing selection of economy ham and thinly sliced cheddar with some stale-ish bread for toasting. There were some pastries but they didn't look fresh. Some tired fruit. The coffee was a disaster. Come on. This is England. A breakfast involves bacon and... More
