“Well located”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

We were staying here for two nights and were a disappointed with the room we had. It was small with a small bathroom, however it was in a very good location with an easy walk into Oxford city. Our hosts were very easy to get along with. The breakfast was excellent. Whilst they do have on site parking it can be very tight

We enjoyed being able to walk into the city center from this hotel, and it was great that the hotel had a carpark, though small. Management was helpful and allowed us to keep our car for a few hours after checkout while we toured the Ashmolean Museum (always a hit with my family). The breakfast was quite good, and probably the highlight of our one-night stay there.

I must say, though, that this B&B was the least appealing of the four hotels we stayed in that week. Our rooms were clean but small and dark, and the decor in our double room was a little creepy--with a pink mohair coverlet on the bed and a huge japanese-lantern-style lamp above the bed. And (to my knowledge), there was no common area to just sign down and relax in. You're either in your room or you're having breakfast in the basement. It just wasn't a very comfy place and I would think it would be hard to spend any amount of time there.

Room Tip: No lift, so be sure you can carry your bags yourself if you get a room on the top floor.

My wife and myself had a lovely time here. The staff was helpful on arrival. We had arrived early, so we left our luggage at the b&b and set off to town centre. On return to the hotel, later in the eveing we could not wait to hit the bed. The rooms were cozy which resulted in a good nights sleep. Clean and hygienic. Breakfast was really good. Hospitality of team was lovely. It is a 10 mins walk to the city centre which is not a problem, helped me burn my calories. There is a convenience store right outside. On route to the city centre there are 4 restaurants and pubs which also provide punting, motor boat experience etc. To summarise, I recommend this b&b.

This place is simple and decent. It's a bit far down the road away from city center. You will have further to walk but there are no crowds of tourists. Two nice pubs nearby. Room was clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast was huge.

I stayed at the Newton House on a business trip. Unfortunately I found the B&B to be quite run down, especially in the communal areas. The bathroom was modern and clean but the bedroom was full of old furniture and smelled a bit musty. If you do stay here ask for a room at the back as it is on a main road without double glazing. The staff were mostly friendly and the guy who greets you and shows you your room is very kind but my requests to meet an allergy I have at breakfast was not met despite being provided at time of booking and it was difficult to order an alternative as there is no breakfast menu. The breakfast mentioned on their website wasn't what was available. Inconsistent unfortunately and in need of some TLC and a bigger breakfast room so all the guests can sit down! However the location is great. If you can get a cheap deal on this B&B, then I don't think you would be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back

We enjoyed our 2 nights in mid May 2013 at the Newton House. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good with cold and hot food. The parking in the rear was a bit of a challenge because twice we had to ask people to move their cars as we were blocked in.
The location was excellent in Oxford to visit our son.

Stayed for one night on a Saturday, emailed Friday to arrange check in time and arrived within that time.
We were met by a friendly gentleman who gave us info on Oxford and asked about what we had done so far.
The family room was at the front of the building overlooking a busy road, but we were not disturbed by traffic noise or talking.
The room was large with a double,single and single bed settee and was clean and light.The ensuite had a shower which when i figured out how to work it was hot and powerful.
Good breakfast plenty of choice served by pleasant staff. Would stay again if in the area.
