Too expensive for what it offers

Easy to find, very well connected by bus to train stations and city centre.
I had a single room. Although it's a 4 star B&B, the room furniture and light were in bad condition, the bathroom tabs were full of scale, there was no hot water from the sink. The mattress was not comfortable and the overall look&feel was not pleasant. Too expensive for what it offered.

Det ligger så nära min svåger, varit där många gånger, som ett hem.
British plumbing!

Very good

Good breakfast meals. Friendly staffs. Quiet neighbours.
Rooms are a bit small for family. But it is understandable as the hotel is located at Oxford. Very weak wifi signal.

Great hotel. Loved it

I was particularly charmed by the 80s asthetic inside. Reminded me of my childhood!

Friendly welcome. Good to have a fridge and bottle of water and fresh milk for tea/coffee provided.

Bed comfortable, yes, and pillows which are often overlooked.
A small room and rather dated. Lighter colours would make it seem less small. No extractor fan in the bathroom, as far as I can remember and also I think a dark coloured basin and loo?

very nice staff

Kind and helpful stuff Ensuite Warm room Location Cleanliness
Walls are very thin. Could hear guests on both sides of our room, and upstairs, using their bathrooms Noisy mini-fridge

Stuck in 1980s, please refurbish!

Quite a nice breakfast although cramped dining area.
How on earth is this a 4* all the fittings and fixtures are from the early '80s. Stained carpets and bed spreads as so old. Old shower, in fact everything was ancient. This isn't acceptable in this day and age.

I would recommend it to anybody.

Everything was good, and I would stay here again.
I have no negative comments.

Nice place to stay

Lovely friendly environment. Great location - easy bus to Oxford centre. Off street parking ideal.
All good (-:

Classic Oxford "faded glory" comfort

Beautiful garden, charming older home, "faded glory". Personal sauna and beautiful gardrn view in the deluxe suite.
Somewhat dingy and run down but clean and quite comfortable. Felt like a once very elegant older apartment.

Für einen Kurzaufenthalt geeignet.

Die Lage zur Stadt ist sehr gut. Direkt vor dem Haus befindet sich eine Bushaltestelle, die alle 10 Minuten bedient wird. Frühstück super. Alles sehr sauber und gepflegt.
Hatten ein 150 cm breites Doppelbett gebucht aber nur eines mit 130 cm bekommen. War schon ein wenig schmal.

Great for an Oxford visit

Made very welcome by the proprietor and staff.
All Ok no issues.

A nice welcome, ticks lots of boxes.

Very convenient location, close to A40 and on frequent bus route into town centre. Also lots of restaurants and supermarkets within walking distance. Had a fridge and off road parking. And there was a wine glass!
I would prefer fresh milk cartons in the fridge rather than UHT. Water pressure was a bit low in the shower but I guess we should all be a bit less wasteful of water.


Sep, 25, 2016

Very disappointing, not good value for money. Could stay in a half decent four star for the price.

Breakfast was actually not bad.
Massively over priced for what you get. Bed not very comfortable, shower took forever to get hot, toilet roll holder held on with blu-tac! Annoying noisy fridge. No place to sit and work. Handle broken on door.

overall nice place with great home-cooked breakfast but my room was a bit too tight.

the english breakfast was really good. served nicely and delicious.
the wifi would not work in the evenings and would start up when the staff reset it in the morning. pretty annoying. the room was bit too tight as well.


Sep, 22, 2016

Splendid stay

The facilities we had were very good
There wasn't a tv in the lounge area that we had, it would have been nice to sit there to chill together

Surprise in the heart of Oxford

Perfect location for an event around the corner (literally). Friendly, comfortable, and the room came with spa bath, sauna, and private dining room - we were spoiled for a B&B
Decor is a little dated but hey, hardly a problem.

Wonderful little hotel in a peaceful yet convenient location:)

Staff were really nice, and the location being just nrth of the town centre mean it is close to Oxford, and also very convenient of you are driving.. And have plans for Bicester Village!

Not a 4 star accommodation.

Off road parking.
Uncomfortable bed. Rooms needed updating. Basic hospitality.
