We only stayed here two nights as we wanted to visit the City of Oxford. Never having been to Oxford before it needed to be somewhere that we could travel from using public transport as driving into Oxford would be a mistake as parking in the city is almost prohibited. There are very few B&Bs which meet the criteria and Claddagh Guest House seemed the best choice as we were able to get a bus just a couple of minutes walk from the house which took us to the city centre.
The house itself is very well presented having 5 guest bedrooms, 2 doubles and 3 singles. Our double room, room no.3, was situated at the rear of the property overlooking the back garden. The room was of a reasonable size, having plenty of wardrobe and cupboard space, was clean and equipped with coffee/tea making facilities and TV. The en-suite bathroom was also very clean and quite large, having a corner shower, basin and WC.
Our hostess, Mena, was extremely welcoming and accomodating to our needs (we needed to change the duvet for a thinner one and this was no problem at all). Mena served the breakfasts herself and I had the full English cooked breakfast on both mornings and it was very good indeed. Other breakfast choices are available, fruit, cereals, fruit juices, tea, coffee etc At breakfast, which is served between 7:15 and 8:15 (8:00 & 9:00 at weekends) there is one large table for 6 people and so you get to share the breakfast table with other guests which means that you have the opportunity to meet and talk to other interesting people.
Mena has a beautiful, well run guest house and whether you need to visit the local hospitals, colleges or like us, just need somewhere to stay outside of Oxford City centre then this is definitely somewhere you should consider.
