The Old School house offers two types of room; I chose the Moroccan Suite, and it is an easy walk into the town centre. The room is on the first floor (a wide staircase, easy to navigate), it was very warm, the bed is comfortable, the bathroom is large with good hot water, and the view into the garden is... More

As our mini-honeymoon we have recently spent two nights in The Old School House in Wallingford. We couldn't pick a better location. The B&B is gorgeous and very clean. Hosts, Carolyn and Bill, are very friendly and welcoming and made us feel at home. They also make amazing breakfasts :) Thames path provides beautiful walks even in December. We will... More

Carolyn and Bill are warm and welcoming hosts and their house is beautiful. I stayed in the well appointed Moroccan Suite which had everything one could need (including a comfy bed and strong and consistent wifi) and really enjoyed Bill's (as I see from earlier reviews!) trademark salmon and scrambled eggs. An excellent place to stay.

Our trip to Wallingford and the surrounding area was motivated by watching a British show called Midsomer Murders. We were not that interested in the actors or story lines, but the beautiful scenery caught our attention years ago. We finally had the opportunity to go and were not disappointed. If anything the area was even more beautiful and interesting than... More

This has got to be the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Although you might think the bathroom not being ensuite could be a problem in fact it was the opposite. It was just across a small landing but as it is all completly private it gave us much more space than an ensuite would. The breakfast was lovely... More

Only a couple of hundred yards from Wallingford centre it was ideal for our walk on the Thames Path. Hosts very welcoming, relaxed and friendly. The house was a lovely eclectic mix of furnishings a number of which acquired on thier overseas travels. We had Bill's salmon and eggs mentioned on other reviews and was a great start to the...

I have stayed at The Old School House 3 times now, lovely rooms (stayed in both). Fantastic breakfast (try Bill's Smoked Salmon & Scrambled Eggs), everything you could wish for & fantastic hosts. Recommend for either one night or a weeks stay.

You can't put a price on benevolence and hospitality, something Carolyn and Bill have by the bucket load. Complete strangers who embraced the situation and went far and beyond to make the 4 night stay a home from home. I can not thank you enough. Vicky, Tony & James
