“Great hotel in a wonderful neighborhood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2011

This is our 5th year staying at the Manor House. It is clean, quite, reasonably priced and in a nice neighborhood convenient to downtown Oxford. Oxford's downtown with all te colleges is beautiful, but swarming with tourists. The Manor House is about a 10 -15 minute walk or a 3-5 minute bus ride. It is nice to be in a real neighborhood to enjoy many ethnic restaurants, pleasant neighborhood streets and houses, good pubs, with easy access to what everyone visits Oxford for. Rooms on the back of the house are extremely quiet. Good breakfast, very nice owners and a good value.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms at the back of the house, which are very quiet with no street noise.

I stayed at the Manor House Hotel this month for a total of 4 nights while I took my exams in Oxford. I had previously stayed at the Premier Inn in Oxford for a mock exam and had a horrible experience - the hotel was miles from town (which meant an expensive taxi journey there and back), the room was unbearably hot, it was noisy and the staff weren't the friendliest. So I was pleasantly surprised to find that the Manor House Hotel is the complete opposite! The lady who runs the hotel (I'm sorry I never caught her name) was so incredibly kind, giving me words of support the morning before each exam - I'm sure she could tell how nervous I was - and was extremely accommodating of my 'unique' situation. The room I stayed in was very clean and comfortable and, despite being on Iffley Road, noise from traffic outside was hardly noticeable. Breakfast was great too. I'd definitely recommend a stay at the Manor House Hotel over any of the big name hotels - it's cheaper, cleaner and the hospitality of its staff was first class. Thanks for all your support, Manor House Hotel!

On the positive side, the owners were very friendly and helpful. We had the full English breakfast each day, which was very good - just enough to set us up for the day without being stuffed! The rooms were clean with fresh towels every day. The location is very handy - being near a great selection of restaurants (on Cowley Road) and pubs (for example, The Fir Tree, Iffley Road). There is a bus stop directly outside and we never waited more than a minute for a bus to the centre. On the negative side, it is necessary to take the bus in as the walk is a tad long. The decor is very dated looking although it doesn't seem to be that old. My main quibble is that it is over-priced at £89 a night but that seems to be par for the course in Oxford. Overall, a very good option location-wise. Being near Cowley Rd is great - you can eat and have a couple of drinks there then walk home in the evening. Price and decor just prevent me from giving it 4 stars, otherwise good.

Stayed with my partner for 4 nights while he was working in Oxford. Spotlessly clean throughout. Bedroom comfortable and quiet, bed linen perfectly laundered. Easy travel into Oxford. A few lovely places to have a wine or two, especially the 'Rusty Bicycle'.

We chose this hotel as we needed somewhere close to Oxford Brookes University for our daughter's graduation. Turned out to be an excellent choice as it was in easy walking distance of her student house and the university. The room was spotless, sunny and spacious with a very comfortable pine bed. Breakfast was freshly cooked for us and we ate looking out onto the beautifully maintained walled garden with rose bushes, apple trees and even a thriving fig tree. Extremely friendly and welcoming, definitely recommended.

At £80 for a double room for one night, The Manor House Hotel was the cheapest accommodation I could find in Oxford without staying at the infamous Nanford or a hostel. Proprietress was extremely friendly although described the town centre as a ten minute walk away - the walk is actually 25 minutes. Lady was devout Greek Orthodox and had many religious images around the hotel which was interesting but a bit unnerving at times. Room was clean if a little faded/outdated. Shower was very feeble and dribbly. Bed was clean, big and very comfortable. We were assigned a room in the building next-door and given our own front-door key which turned out for the best as we arrived back very late. Breakfast was included but cannot comment as we overslept and missed breakfast.
Would recommend to anyone looking for budget accommodation in Oxford - but don't expect it to be cheap - staying anywhere in Oxford costs a fortune.
