Sandfield Guest House
Ranked #4 of 85 Oxford B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Found here on Tripadvisor and chosen on its rating, Sandfield Guest House is truly excellent. We were attending the annual Oxford International Tango festival, and were looking for convenient, competitively priced accommodation. Sandfield offers a great place to stay just a short bus ride from the city centre, We had one of the front rooms looking out onto London Road, but totally quiet due to the secondary glazing. The large en suite room was just what we wanted, offering one of the most comfortable beds in a home-from-home. Breakfast is prepared by Paul, the proprietor. We chose 'full English', and porridge - which were superb, setting us up for a day of dancing and site seeing. What defines Sandfield Guest House is Paul. He is by far the most personable and helpful guest house proprietor we have met in our travels. If you are looking for top service in a comfortable home from a charming Englishman, Sandfield Guest House has to be your choice.

When you read so many gleaming reviews on TA, you almost expect to be let down. That's definitely not the case with Sandfield. Major credit for this review needs to go to the owner, Paul, who goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is going well. I was in a £48 single room in the attic which was perfect for my needs. Modern decor and a comfortable night's sleep. What more is needed? There's value for money and then there's this.

Paul is a very helpful and attentive host. Very good location right on bus route not far from Oxford City Centre (about a 10 min. bus ride). Very nice room and excellent breakfast. Very clean room and bathrooms. Great place to stay in Oxford.

Good location, big and clean room, nice decoration, excellent bed. Paul is very friendly and wants to help with everything you may need. Good breakfast. We had a problem with the shower which was sorted out as soon as we communicated Paul. An excellent choice for Oxford.

We booked a double ensuite after reading all the fabulous reviews on Sanfield Guest House. And after 6 nights of stays, we left feeling so satisfied and pleased. Paul is such a generous and helpful host, made us feel so much at home. The room we stayed is spacious and clean. Wifi reception is good. Excellent service.

I have stayed in the Sandfield Guesthouse in January when was searching for permanent accommodation and have to say that the stay exceeded my expectations. The place is spotlessly clean, service amazing and place very comfortable. Guesthouse is located in a very convenient location - easy to get to the city centre and other parts. Any questions about the city? Ask Paul - he knows lots of lovely places and is genuinely passionate about Oxford! Also worth mentioning is amazing breakfast and yummy cookies in your room!

I recently had the pleasure of staying at Sandfield Guest House and found it to be a perfect place to explore Oxford, the breakfast was excellent as was the room. I only hope that Paul & his B&B business continue to go from strength to strength.
