We were greeted by a friendly lady who showed us our room. The room was less than adequate for our needs firstly we were a group of 3 adults... We were given a room with 1 double bed, 1 childrens/teen bed that had a pull out underneath so one of our group spent a few nights on the floor. The... More

The room stank - there was clearly a sewage problem in the ensuite which was revolting. There was a large amount of mould on the bathroom ceiling. The furniture was dirty & stained. The bed was broken on one side, so when you laid on the bed the mattress fell through the frame on to the floor. Stained towels. Revolting... More

Let's start with one common theme we are all in agreement with (all accept one but hey you can't please them all). We assume the owner is the lady that greeted us on arrival and yes, she was really sweet and had a lovely cheery disposition. The room we had was far more impressive than the cold looking and dour...

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
