Property's Favorite Review
This is my third time staying here and I love the place. Yan, John & the team are amazing.... friendly, welcoming & always going above & beyond to create a home from home atmosphere. The beds are super comfy, rooms are very clean & nicely decorated & the shower is powerful with consistent temperature. Yan does a lovely breakfast with fresh quality ingredients cooked to order with plenty of choice even for fussy eaters. We stayed as it is close to the hospital where we where visiting my husband but if you're visiting for leisure purposes it's ideal as there are bus stops right outside enabling you to get to Oxford City centre in 10 minutes. The restaurant on site is currently closed due to a refurbishment but there are numerous restaurants within 5/10 minutes walk & if you Don't fancy walking get a delivery. Thanks all of you, you are a very special team & made a difficult time very pleasant.

Staff is friendly and always happy to help. Rooms are clean and are cleaned every day. I have dust mite allergy but had no problems inside the room. The breakfast is delicious and there are enough options to choose from. Definitely recommend staying with them.

Great staff and affordable pricing. Loud in the evenings, shower got scalding when another person (presumably) flushed the toilet or used a tap, quite a few scuffs throughout. Overall a good stay and would definitely return given the pricing.

BED BUGS! In the morning I woke up to see a bed bug crawling across my sheets. When I told the owner, showed her a dead one, the evidence of them on the sheet and even an alive one she still refused to believe me. Incredibly rude! Ive got bite marks all over and I would not recommend going here.

It is not right to made such false story when we disapprove your last minute cancellation. Messed up our place with your muddy boots and left without paying. Reported you to booking.com who approve our report. We will report to Tripadvisor too. It is morally wrong and we believe that the public will read all of our reviews about our services and facilities.

Stayed single night - really helpful, comfortable and a superb breakfast. Quiet location, well connected to town and can’t speak highly enough of the breakfast. Quality ingredients, fresh bread, perfectly cooked in a really welcoming kitchen!

We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at Oxford Guest House. The room was clean and tidy. The staff were really helpful. There is a bus stop just outside the hotel where we caught the bus into Oxford Centre which took under 10 minutes. My usual complaints about a hotel are:- 1) Uncomfortable bed 2) Rubbish shower pressure Well not for this hotel! The bed was so comfortable and the shower amazing! The breakfast was delicious and we were very well fed. We would definitely stay here again.

Decided to go to Oxford for couple nights to get going out again and we’d never been before. Chose this guest house as looked ok and getting into Oxford looked easy on bus . Glad we did as it was just what we wanted. Plenty parking space , getting into city and back so easy with bus stop very close (cheap to with bus pass!) Ensuite room small but adequate and very clean. Restaurant area also spotless and breakfast excellent , plenty choice all cooked to order, shame current situation has reduced the amount of local people using the restaurant and bar as it’s obviously a good place to eat. The lady owner was very welcoming and friendly with lots local information and a very good cook! Would we go back? YES!
