Room was basic, but clean and mine had an en-suite with decent shower. Wifi was good enough to stream Netflix. Bed not perfect, a little small and mattress seen better days, but perfectly OK for a couple of nights. I had a nice view of the quad and it made a nice change to stay in a historic building and the usual business hotel. I would stay again.

Booked a one night stay in a twin room ensuite for a friend's birthday - she loved the room with a view, the ensuite shower is very convenient (shame the head was broken though!) and room is a good size, with plenty of towels, a bedside table, lamps, tea/coffee etc and a bag of toiletries provided; there is a fridge, too. Our room was up 3 flights of stairs - fine for us, but do check before booking if mobility is a problem. Personally really liked seeing the steps worn smooth by generations of students!
Grounds are well maintained and pretty, and breakfast in the hall was, we thought, very good - the usual options of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cheese, patries, juice and hot breakfast including vegetarian options, as well as a coffee machine for espresso/latte etc and the option of tea/filter coffee too.
Staff were very friendly and helpfully stored our luggage for us.
Location is very handy for the Pitt Rivers/Natural History Museum and the University parks, though it's only a 10 minute very direct walk into town.
Yes, it's not a 5 star hotel, but we booked knowing it was student accommodation, as we wanted to experience life as a college student! We did pay a premium IMO as we booked late and there was a massive group of foreign students already staying there - my tip would be to book as far in advance as you can and, if you've a lot of luggage, get a taxi to/from the station.

Going back to Oxford for a one-night stay, I thought it would be fun to be in college accommodation rather than an hotel -- less expensive, and with that touch of academic class. I chanced on Keble College, a relatively modern (Victorian) institution, and booked an en-suite 'modern' room for 2. I won't do this again.

The college surroundings were attractive in their very Victorian way, and the grounds were beautifully tended. Staff too were charming and helpful throughout.

Breakfast in the Great Hall was adequate but truthfully not more than that, and the Great Hall itself is not a patch on other more venerable ones -- try Christ Church, and fall in love for a lifetime.

The killer at Keble was the contempt for its guests in their accommodation. We are advised that in the older buildings there is no elevator (lift) facility. No problem.

But while the so-called modern accommodation (1995, and probably never renovated since then) had an elevator, it was "Out Of Order". Damn right. And with no prospect of it being fixed.

Also out of order were the filthy chairs and curtains in the bedroom. Whatever the students had been doing to render them so, these were not fit for sale to the public. BUT Keble's Master must think they are fine!

There needs to be a considerable rethink in Keble College about the image it seeks to project to the world in this regard. Leaving aside its well-maintained and pretty grounds, there is no way that this could be graded as better than 2-star as a hotel -- and in vacation time, that is all it is. Just a cheap hotel. Cheap for the area, but be warned: what you pay for is what you get. Mucky.

Thank you for your review of Keble College during your recent stay. Thank you for your comments regarding the College grounds and the staff on duty. I am sorry that the accommodation offered did not live up to you expectations on this occasion. I have reported your issues to our housekeeping team and please be assured that we are working to rectify this so thank you for bringing it to my attention. Regrettably, the lift in the Arco building was out of order and this was out of our control as we had to wait for a new part to be delivered. I am sorry that you were not offered assistance to your room with your luggage. I do hope that you enjoyed the rest of your trip to Oxford. Kind regards Sinead Webster Reservations & Events Manager

First off, exceptional staff here, they take you to your room, explain everything and always ready to help. Secondly, you get a whole heap of toiletries, if you like that sort fo thing to help your stay go well. The location is stunning, it is so beautiful, I recommend paying a little extra for a quad view..especially if you don't do this often.
Breakfast is a highlight, plenty of choice, its a buffet type deal, the setting is in the dinning hall, so you eat in a piece of living history, you'll be taking selfies rather than eating... a truly ideal Oxford experience. Also much cheaper than any kind of comparable hotel. Exceptionally clean and has a fridge, not TV but with a place like Oxford, you shouldn't be watching TV anyway.

Thank you for your kind review of Keble College. I will be sure to pass your comments onto our Porters, Housekeeping, Catering and Gardening teams. We do take huge pride in our Quads and when booking a quad facing room you really do get to enjoy the beautiful views. I'm so pleased that you enjoyed the Dining Hall. This was just refurbished and finished in March of this year and it certainly does look beautiful. I do hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back to Keble soon.

Booked three rooms for a weekend. Stayed in the more modern part of the college but still felt like a student. Highlight of the stay was the grand dining room - very Harry Potter. Breakfast was a bit early though.
