Helpful and happy - that's what Luke and the staff of Red Mullions are. Not forgetting the comfortable, clean rooms, great shower, generous amount of coffee/tea/bottled water/biscuits in the room...all very thoughtful. And, even though it's not in the heart of town (which is a plus for parking reasons; there's ample parking at this B&B), it's very close to the centre and there are lots of buses that stop directly outside the B&B. Separate access leading straight to rooms provide for lots of privacy, and triple glazing on windows kept out the traffic noise. We're going back next month and hope to stay at RM's again.

We have stayed here twice over recent months for family reasons. It was excellent and to be thoroughly recommended. Good rooms, clean, delightful staff and excellent breakfast. Everybody very helpful. Even though on a busy road rooms are quiet and there is good parking space should it be required. Very convenient for Headington, John Radcliffe Hospital , Oxford Brookes University and buses to the city centre.

A great place for C. S. Lewis fans: close to The Kilns and Holy Trinity. Right in the heart of Headington (Starbucks, groceries, restaurants); an easy bus ride straight into Oxford. Luke and all the staff were unbelievably knowledgeable and so helpful. Terrific.

From beginning to end, Red Mullions exceeded my expectations. Luke and the other staff were a constant and tremendous help to us on all fronts. Our room was excellent; our strict dietary requirements were observed without a single hitch; Luke could ALWAYS be counted on to provide easy-to-follow directions and superb advice, and every member of staff we interacted with was pleasant, friendly, welcoming, and went out of their way to be helpful. I will DEFINITELY stay at Red Mullions again, and I STRONGLY recommend this place to anyone traveling to Oxford for any reason.

Myself and my girlfriend had very pleasant 1 night stay at the Red Mullions last weekend. Room was clean and spacious, breakfast was superb and the location made the fantastic sights of Oxford easily accessible. Luke was a fantastic host as well and could not have been more helpful. Only thing to watch out for is if you plan to walk to the station.. its over 2.5 miles so give youself plenty of time otherwise you might miss your train like we did!

I have to compliment Luke and all the staff at the Red Mullions for making our stay so pleasant and welcoming, that we all felt at home away from home. Our stay in Oxford was mainly due to medical reasons and we were only a five minute walk away from the John Radcliffe Hospital. I would and will certainly recommend anyone visiting Oxford for whatever reason, be it pleasure, business, medical or any other, to stay at the Red Mullions for the hospitality, cleanliness and a wonderful breakfast that one could vary as s/he pleased every morning.
Excellent location. Close to the city center either by walk or bus. Plenty of shops and Pubs nearby.
Great food served in all the Pubs !!! There is a lot more to add to my comments but I am not going to be the one to do so. Actually I'm leaving it to you readers who are planning to visit Oxford and to experience a wonderful stay at the Red Mullions.
Should I come back to Oxford, I would certainly book myself at the Red Mullions again.

I am writing on behalf of my parents as they are 93 and not computer literate! I wanted somewhere for my elderly parents to stay while we were in Oxford to celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. They had room 14 which was possibly the bridal suite and it was warm, comfortable with a huge comfortable bed and they were really taken care of. They loved it and I felt they were safe. The food was excellent and they said everyone was kind and helpful to them. Thank you Luke and all your staff for helping to give two elderly people a weekend to remember.
