A nice place to stay for a short visit. There are plenty of hotels in this area; but Cornerways is so lovely. Very helpful staff. We walked to downtown Oxford within 20 minutes, and on the way back enjoyed a enchanting river-side meal at Folly. In this crowded area they provide private parking!

My daughter and I stayed two nights at Cornersway. Ian was a wonderful host. He was very helpful in finding out some information we were seeking about things to do around Oxford. The breakfasts were well-prepared and delicious. Our room was a good size and very clean. The only drawback is it is a bit of a walk to the...

When in Oxford I usually stay in small hotels just north of the university area but my usual ones were full for this short-notice trip so I chose for the first time a place south of the river - unknown territory for me. It was a short taxi ride (round the new ring road) from the station to the guest...

Cornerways is just wonderful. I had a lovely room on the main floor. The classic I believe it is called. The room was a perfect size, actually larger than I expected, had a window that opened for fresh air and the bathroom was really great. I needed a few days to relax and this was the ideal location. Ian ,...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

“probably best for noise to be more at side rather than front but not sure about side rooms and not sure it would make much difference”
