Fantastic location for the city centre and only a short walk from the station. Clean, tidy and very welcoming - ok it needs a bit of tlc, but we were only there for one night and it was excellent value for money for a b&b in the centre of Oxford. For those with negative comments - stay in a hotel,... More

We booked three rooms. But the day we arrived we learnt there were only two rooms available because they had made a mistake. By then it was too late to find somewhere else to stay. The assured us we would only pay for the two rooms, plus receive a 30 pounds discount. (The discount, we thought, was to apologise for... More

I read the reviews whilst staying here and was surprised at the negativity! Yes the house could do with a bit of sprucing up in places but it was clean and safe! Breakfast was good too! Owners not overly chatty but I'm no way rude and I like that personally. There is parking despite what people say and it's a... More

I booked last minute for work related reasons - the price was great and I did not mind at all that I had to use a shared bathroom. Some of the reviews concerned me but I needn't have been worried. As a solo female traveller I sometimes feel a little apprehensive booking B&Bs. This one was great. It had a... More

The room was very small the bathroom even smaller. The people where very friendly. The room was clean and the beds where quite comfy. Despite the size it was a very cozy and bright room. The sugar for the tea was daily replenished.

The check-in procedure was unusual. There was a notice on the door giving us a number to call. If we did not have cell phones, I don't know what we would have done. Who doesn't have cell phones today? We didn't until recently and we had the sense to get ourselves inexpensive pay-as-you-go phones while in the UK. When we... More

This hotel is in a quiet part of the town, around 7 minutes walk to the city centre. We arrived at 8.30 PM to find the front door locked and a note with a number to call which we did. We were told that a text message had been sent to us which we never received, since ours is a... More

We booked the White House View as a stopover on our journey south to visit family and friends and unfortunately I didn't check out the reviews before booking. We had a phone call from the landlady as we were travelling to Oxford enquiring when we would be checking in. I found this quite bizarre but now realise that the owners... More

The guesthouse is in a well-maintained Edwardian-type house in a quiet street off Abingdon road after the Folly Bridge. The location is ideal if you are looking for a room in a quiet neighbourhood but still within walking distance of the main touristic attractions of the city. Upon arrival I had to 'climb' up four flights of stairs to a... More

Very clean and well presented in an excellent central location. Our room had an en suite with a shower. it wasn't a 4 star hotel like other reviews here seem to expect but it was good value for the price we paid and in my opinion was very clean which is the most important aspect.
