“Great welcome to Oxford”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

I really enjoyed my stay at Diana's B and B. I was made to feel very welcome by Diana (who cooks a superb breakfast!). I was also very impressed with my room, which was very nice and clean. Although the B and B is situated outside of central Oxford, this actually turned out to be good as it allowed me to explore the much quieter suburb of Summertown, which has many shops and a lovely pub called "The Dewdrop". This was certainly a welcome respite from a day spent dodging cyclists and tourist groups! The B and B is also just off Banbury Road, where buses constantly run into town. I have already recommended Diana's B and B to my family and I would happily stay there again!

Stayed June 2013, traveled solo

We chose Diana's B&B due to the good reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Everything was clean and comfortable, the breakfast wonderful and Diana very helpful. Thoroughly recommended although on arrival, the road was a little off-putting, it does not look like a B&B area, but is very surprisingly nice inside.

We had a very warm welcome from Diana on our 2 night stay. The room was lovely and a very comfortable bed. Diana helped with any questions we had about Oxford and the bus service into the centre was fantastic. The breakfast at Diana's is one of the best breakfasts I have ever had. On our next visit to Oxford this will be where we stay.

I stayed at Diana's B&B with my boyfriend and family back in April for a nostalgic trip to Oxford. Diana made us feel at home, the room was clean and comfy, the breakfast was lovely and overall, and above all I would say that it's very good value for money - especially in a city like Oxford where reasonably priced good accommodation is hard to find. As it's a B&B you get the homely factor too, which makes a difference!!

Thank you for taking the time to review me and in particular letting everyone know that we are 'reasonably priced' here in Oxford. Everything is relative and sometimes its difficult having to justify our prices compared to other parts of the country where property prices are much less.

Hope to see you again.

Best wishes,
Diana

After reading the reviews on Trip advisor, I knew that this was the right place for our daughter to spend 3 weeks before going back to uni. Diana couldnt have made our daughter more welcome and she felt right at home, it is clean tidy and she offers a great range for breakfast, it was a great base for our daughter to be as she went into oxford everyday.

Thanks Diana for making our daughters stay a very comfortable one.

It wasn't difficult to make your daughter welcome, as she is a delightful young lady. My other guests also enjoyed having a real live Oxford undergraduate to talk to; usually they just see fleeting images of students wandering around the colleges or if they are lucky from a distance with their gowns on when there is a graduation ceremony. So having your wonderful daughter to talk to was a delight to everyone.
Best wishes,
Diana

Diana's B&B is a nice, homey place with fresh though small rooms and clean bathrooms.Diana is a delightful host. She has only four rooms so service is very personalized. She personally cooks whatever you want for breakfast and chats with you as you eat. With a small, intimate group, it was good to get toknow the other guests as we shared breakfast at a common table, usually no more that four people at a time. For the price, it is a good place and we would definitely stay there again.

While organising our trip to the UK, we were excited about spending a night in an Oxford college among students; and that was enjoyable and funny... We changed mind about our next step and decided to stay 1 night more in the prestigious city and looked for a B&B. We were really lucky with Diana's B&B! She was patient and helpful with me on the phone; the place was easy to find, quiet, and Diane is a wonderful and smiling hostess. The 2 rooms we booked were definitely perfect and at breakfast time we could talk with Diane and other guests from Liverpool, which is what we like in the B&B system.

Room Tip: From Diana's place, straight on to the city centre!

Hello Christian!
Many thanks for reviewing me. It was lovely accommodating the 3 of you. You and your wife in the double en-suite called 'Headington' and your friend in one of the singles that has a shared bathroom. I hope next time you are in Oxford you try me again.
Best wishes,
