I took my mum to Oxford last weekend as a birthday treat. After looking for an affordable hotel and doing some research I found that access to the colleges is pretty restricted unless you're a guest so I booked Keble College. Staying at the college was a great experience and from the moment we arrived we were really well looked after. We arrived early in the morning so our rooms weren't ready but just like a hotel they were happy to hold onto our luggage. When we returned later a gentleman showed us to our room and carried all our luggage. Having been at univeristy I wasn't expecting too much from the accommodation but our room was fine. They had left a full range of toiletries, tea, hot choc and coffee and there was even a fridge! The bathroom was absolutely fine too.The following morning breakfast was served in the great hall which was incredible, much nicer than your average breakfast room!Overally the accommodation was good, nothing flash obviously but perfect if all you need is a base to look around Oxford. But what you really stay there for is the surroundings, they are truly stunning. I would recommend Keble College to anyone and will definitely be returning to Oxford and another college stay soon.
