OK, having stayed at many UK small hotels and B&B's, I had clear expectations for this type of hotel and I was spot-on. Sure it's an old building with small rooms and creaky floors, but that's why they don't charge 100 pounds a night. On the down side, the furnishings are dated and the carpet could use replacing. Did that have any effect on my stay? Certainly not. The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet (#7), the hot water was plentiful, the Wi-Fi worked without issue, and the service at breakfast was wonderful, with a well-appointed cold buffet and any sort of eggs and bacon/sausage cooked to order in a manner of minutes. On my final day, I had to leave before they opened for breakfast, so on prior night they insisted that I select a cold breakfast tray with cereal, yogurt, milk, OJ (the cold items on ice) to keep in my room for the next morning. Very nice. Best of all, I was only 200 yards away from both the Oxford train station and the Said Business School.
