Gracious people; nice suite. It must have been close to 100 degrees during our visit but the place was cool and welcoming. Nice southern breakfast provided the next morning--cooked to order. Lovely people. The rates go sky high during football weekends--if you're planning a non-Ole Miss visit during the fall better check around that. The football weekend rates were actually... More

Oxford is an amazing town so this B&B offers you walking distance to an enjoyable experience . We go to many bed and breakfasts so in comparing this for the price, we found it coming up short . The personal touch didn't exist. The room was nice and roomy, but the shower was very awkward, bathroom door wouldn't latch and... More

This was my first experience staying at a B&B, so I really didn't know what to expect. The owner, Keith, met us at the front door, and instantly made us feel so welcome. Our room was very spacious (we stayed in room #1) and SO COMFORTABLE! It was by far the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. We... More

The 5 Twelve Bed & Breakfast was fabulous. When we arrived we were met by the owner Keith who was very gracious and provided a tour of his B&B with great pride. Our 2 night stay was extremely comfortable and the breakfast staff was very friendly. The location is fabulous, only a very short 5 minute walk, maybe less to... More

The 5 Twelve is an easy walk from Courthouse Square, the home of lots of interesting places to visit; so, if that's your destination,the 5 Twelve is your place to stay. Unlike other B&Bs we have stayed in, it is more like a business than a family setting. The bed is exceptionally comfortable and our room attractive, though neither room... More

My husband and I stayed at this B&B last week on a pleasure trip to visit Oxford. We enjoyed everything about it. We stayed in Room #1 which is very large with a king size bed and a good sized bath.

We had the opportunity to stay one night at 5 Twelve when we visited our daughter. First visit and hopefully not our last...although their popularity can make it difficult to reserve on game day weekends! Plan way in advance. We opted for this B&B over the typical hotels in town and are glad we did. Happy on check in through... More

I took my daughter on a college visit of Ole Miss and wanted a place close to the Oxford Square but near the school as well. The 5 Twelve was the perfect spot. Nice room, super comfortable bed and a pretty place. Great breakfast cooked to order. Short walk to the Square. Would definitely stay there again! Had a nice... More

We booked a night at 5 Twelve before realising that it was the day before the Ole Miss game. So we were pleasantly surprised to get such a friendly welcome and realise that, despite the fact that the B&B is only a long street away from the centre of a crowded Oxford, it is a haven of peace and quiet....

Location can't be beat. quiet street, yet walking distance to shops,restaurants, and campus. Perhaps (owner? Manager? ) Keith was tuckered out by the big game Saturday, but our Monday afternoon reception was lackadaisical, far from the hospitality one hopes for in the South or in a room one is paying real money for.

“There are only five guest rooms and a third floor studio suite. Because of the 5 Twelve's central location, closer to the Ole Miss campus and the historic Oxford Courthouse Square than any other hotel in town, each room is a premium. And breakfast is a big plus.”
