We stayed here for just one night because we were going to a gig in town. The location was great for what we wanted as we could leave our car and get one of the regular buses into the center of Oxford. Our room was spacious and comfortable and even though it faced the road we weren't kept awake by... More

This is a little gem of a guest house, which is close to the centre(20 min walk, plenty of buses into centre). It has only 3 guest rooms, so it is not too overcrowded. What stands out is the excellent host Ian who seems to be very helpful and genuinely interested in the welfare of his guests, who also cooked... More

Charming, helpful and very polite host, great breakfast, bright room. Tea, coffee, water bottle are included. Got here early, but had no problems with checking in. Wifi was ok. You can also choose your breakfast. It would ve a 30min walk from the center or railway station, but there is plenty of buses. And road is nice - just go... More

I was extremely impressed by the upbeat attitude and impeccable service offered by the host. Had a full English vegetarian breakfast and the room was lovely. The only downside was that it is near a main road so can be a bit noisy during rush hour time, but that's what you get for being so close. Also would be nice... More

I'm giving this guest house five stars for the help and consideration they gave me in planning a visit which I ultimately had to cancel thru' no fault of theirs. Their help was most invaluable and very much appreciated.

Positives: room clean and pleasant, host friendly and helpful, breakfast fine though not overabundant. Short and convenient walk into the city. Parking is available (and is free on the road as well). Negatives: expensive at £115 for one night's unexceptional B&B (perhaps this is normal for Oxford?) and at that price I was surprised by what tasted suspiciously like orange... More

This small, friendly b&b is situated in a good location, only 15-20 minute walk from the centre of Oxford. There's a bus stop a couple of minutes away with regular buses if you prefer. There is free parking on site. Whilst the single room I stayed in was small, it had all I required, including a comfy double bed and... More

Comfortble B&B situated on the main road going into oxford from the south. Clean room, welcoming host. Very tiny shower room and impossible to leave windows opened due to traffic noise. Breakfast acceptable served in a bright room.

Room was nice, bathroom with good space, breakfast marvelous and distance to the city is OK, could be better. There aren't so much restaurants around, it is a residence area, but easy to park the car. The owners were very nice, quite helpful. It is a good place to stay.
