I would like to share my experience with you. This hotel is by far the most comfortable I have been in. I can express some reasons for saying it: for example the welcoming, then the owner's kindess and finally cleaning, elegant decor. I booked a single room just for 3 days. I was in Oxford to meet some friends, so...

We were going to an event in Oxford and found the hotel through Trip Adviser. The hotel was really good, the room was lovely and the breakfast tasty. There is a car park which is a bonus as parking in Oxford can be problematic. The staff were really friendly, welcoming and helpful. We would recommend as a place to stay.

A lovely little place about 20 minutes walk out of town. It was really well kept, the room was lovely and staff were so helpful and friendly. I'd really recommend staying here and will definitely stay there again if I find myself in Oxford.

This hotel is one of those rare gems which is increasingly difficult to find. A hotel which is run and operated by the people who own and live it. From the moment we arrived nothing was too much trouble. Our booking changed & changed again, no trouble. On arrival parking the car was no trouble. The car park is tight...

Stayed here for two nights and was very happy with it - clean, comfortable, very friendly, great breakfast with lots of choice. They let me leave my backpack for most of the day after I had checked out because I wasn't due to leave Oxford till later in the day. About 15-20 walk to the town centre - there is...
