Down in Oxford for the weekend. Surprised how expensive the place was when looking for digs! Ended up in one of the cheapest (which still seemed very expensive for just a couple of nights). Location is excellent although parking is a problem. Ended up in the Park & Ride which was cheap but a 15 minute walk away. The digs... More

This B and B is only 2 minutes walk from the train station and 10 minutes into the town centre. Very local indeed. The room was very good and the bathroom facilities were good and clean. On the other hand, there should be hand wash available in the bathroom are. But overall very decent B and B.

Didn't expect much from a 2 star guest house but it wasn't a place I'd recommend to anyone. Stayed It was clear the owners put little effort in cleaning the place. Toilets were grim, cups to drink from were dirty, bed sheets still had stains from God knows what. Worst of all the room we had stayed had a serious... More

This is a cheap and basic guest house. It was reasonably clean and the bed was just about okay with a soft and sagging mattress but clean sheets and warm enough. But there was only a single small shower room and one additional toilet - both located down stairs from the rooms. Owners obviously chosen to maximise income by having... More

This guest house is perfect if you're looking for somewhere in Oxford that's quite reasonably priced but central and if you're not too concerned about getting breakfast. My single room was nicely furnished, clean and had everything I needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again.

Having read the reviews. It's fair to say I was slightly nervous about staying. But I was pleasantly surprised. We had room z. Nice homely double room with en suite. Great got powerful shower. Clean tidy room. Only thing I would say would be to check the towels before use. Or take your own. Overall would certainly stay again supervised.... More

The Becket Guest House is affordable lodging for the low-budget traveler. If you're used to three star hotels, inns or bed and breakfasts and up, you'll probably want to pass on a stay here, but if you're looking for a safe place to sleep with basic amenities it's worth considering, especially if you have a small budget and you're looking...

Very reasonable price for Oxford - basic budget rooms - nothing flash but they were clean. The management were friendly and helpful and although the area is not so salubrious it is close to the train station and also close to budget/Avis car rentals. There were quite a lot of stairs to carry luggage up but at least there was... More

I've never written a trip advisor review before but feel I had to let others know how awful this guest house is. The room smelt terrible. We had been told that the guest house had experienced some trouble with their plumbing so we could no longer be accommodated in the double and instead had a twin room. Maybe the plumbing... More

We booked to stay at this guest house as it was significantly less expensive than other guest houses we had been looking at. We had a nice double room and to be fair you get what you pay for. Very basic en suite with no bath but the shower was fine. Very friendly hotel owners who were very accommodating as... More
