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

But the food was ok .staff we met were pleasant.but as some other reviews have said the interior was very dated for the price.for what we paid we expected better and have stayed in better for less. This was definitely not a case of you... 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

The rooms are small, mostly they have no bathroom and toalete. They proclaim English breakfast, but you get continental breakfast. Time span for breakfast is just one hour from 7:30 to 8:30. The only realy good thing is parkink just in front of the main entrance.

I was a study abroad student with a limited budget. This guest house fit the bill literally and figuratively: it was close to a bus stop for easy access to the Oxford city center, but far enough away from the city to be quiet in the evening. I booked a single room with an attached private bathroom. Amenities were clean... More

Hollybush is not one I will go to again. On the plus side, as others have said, the people are pleasant and the place is clean. The shower is strong and hot. Buses are regular. However, other facilities were poor and I've stayed in much better guest houses. The single room was very small, dull and faces a busy road.... More
