Bed and Breakfast accommodation in the famous university city of Oxford. We offer good quality and value 'B&B' accommodation within, but separate from, a large family home. Our well-presented bedrooms include en-suite shower facilities. Our rate includes a 'Continental' buffet style breakfast. We try to accommodate our guests' requirements to ensure a pleasant stay. We are located 2.5 miles south of Oxford city centre. A bus service running every 20 minutes is only 3 minutes’ walk from the house, and will take you to the city centre in 15 minutes. If you have time we are only a short distance from the River Thames and a pleasant walk to the city centre. The nearby village pub offers good affordable meals, with plenty of alternative pubs & restaurants nearby. Local amenities include 2 village shops, post office and a laundrette. London, Heathrow, Shakespeare's theatres and Stonehenge are approximately one hour by car. Westgate & Bicester Village shopping centres are nearby.

Andrea wrote a review Today
Although we just spent the weekend there, we would have loved to stay for longer. The bnb is lovely, the room extremely clean and tidy, and the host Bryan went the extra length to provide us with information, help and support during our stay (thank you again for the drive to the bus station!). Breakfast was delicious. Furthermore Kennington is close to Oxford and well serviced by public transportation. We had no problem traveling by bus to come and go from the structure. In short, our stay was fantastic and the place is highly recommended. We will definitely return! Andrea & Matteo

The room was comfortable, clean & with all the facilities we expect. Excellent continental breakfast. As much as we could eat! My 95 year old father was with us & the owners were attentive to his needs. There was a downstairs toilet which was very helpful so that Dad didn't need to go upstairs to his room.

All the other reviews say it all. We experienced all the good things mentioned. Bryan and his wife were most helpful and took care of our special requests. Kitchen is available to guests with a microwave and refrigerator. Bryan's recommendations on places to eat were good.

The accommodation was really good. Onsite car parking and easy access to central Oxford by bus or a lovely walk along the River Thames. I got a lot of tips on what to visit. For Harry Potter fans in Oxford the New College, Christ Church College & the Bodleian Library, for Downtown Abbey fans the Highclere Castle and Bampton. Also Blenheim Palace is very close.

At Oxfordbnb we had a great time. The service was great. Oxfordbnb is good located, not far from Oxford City Centre [and easy to go by car, bus or cab]. The rooms are really good and clean. All together: five star!

Stayed here for 2 nights with my daughter. Great location for Oxford centre. Bus stop 2mins away or an hr walk into town. Stayed in the family room, plenty of space, large en suite with bath and shower. Very clean, comfortable and warm. Good breakfast and hosts very welcoming. Would 100% stay again.

My wife & I stay here whenever we visit Oxford, the location is ideal, quiet & 3 mins from the nearest bus stop into Oxford itself, there is also a relaxing walk along the river Thames which takes about an hour. Bryan & Siti are lovely hosts, very welcoming & their bnb is in excellent order with all the necessary precautions in place for these difficult times. Our en-suite room was spotlessly clean & comfy, The continental breakfast is superb & provides all one could possibly want to set one up for the day. Bryan is full of local information & will always point you in the right direction should you need it. Looking forward to seeing you both again.......

We loved our stay here. The location is ideal; quiet but really easy to get into and back from Oxford. The hosts are superb; friendly and helpful but you don't feel hassled in any way. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The en suites are well equipped with great showers. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Oxford and would recommend it to anyone!

A friend and myself stayed here for 8 nights whilst in between houses in oxford. The bnb was very clean and the host Bryan was very attentive. Our room was spotless and the shower was really good! I would recommend this bnb to anyone looking for a place to stay just outside of oxford - it is only a short 15 minute drive to the local hospitals which was very convenient for us. Kennington is a peaceful village and we enjoyed a walk along the Thames.
