It was a Saturday night and we couldn't find other accommodation within our budget. This was a gamble as there seemed to be varying opinions. It turned out better than expected. Location wise, it's in Summertown so one has to take the bus (about 15-20mins) to reach the attractions in Oxford centre. Bus-stop was just opposite (coming from Oxford) or... More

Lovely quiet hotel only a short bus ride to the centre. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The en-suite bathroom had a separate shower and the bath was large. Breakfast was basic but very good, cereal, toast and boiled eggs if you want. The staff were lovely, friendly and inviting. A very quiet hotel in a lovely part of... More

We stayed in large room at front, first floor. Everything was new and clean and quite fashionable (cf some 'bargain' b&b). Staff friendly if businesslike. Breakfast simple; we were offered boiled egg but just asked for toast which turned out to be a basket of supermarket croissants and warburtons seeded batch. I suppose if we'd wanted white toast we might... More

For a 2 night stay for a conference at the University, it was ok. Both the room and the shared bathroom were clean and fine, if a little dated in the case of the bathroom. Had a basin and shower (!) in the corner of the room- even for a couple not sure I would feel comfortable with that, let... More

Another unpleasant guest house which should not surprise regular visitors to this town. The room was cramped, in poor decorative order and with an uncomfortable bed. The sink was minute and there was nowhere to sit. The shower was good though. The heating did not come on in the morning. You expect more for this than the money (maybe not... More

I know the Australian dollar is low at the moment, but we paid far too much for the standard of accommodation. The building is seriously run down, furniture is cheap, dowdy, unmatching and unattractive (we had 3 rooms). No management staff seem to be present at any given times: we had to phone to be let in. For international travellers... More

The room was very clean, and we were able to arrive early with no fuss. The location is brilliant. It's a few minutes walk from a nice collection of shops, bars, restaurants, delis etc, and a very quick bus ride into the centre of Oxford. It's on a main road so if you can request a room at the back... More
