We enjoyed our three nights at Five Mile View. Lorraine was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and bright, and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast was delicious. Oxford is a beautiful city. I recommend to everyone.

Room was a little small but the beds were very comfy. Everything just a little squeezed in but no problem for the one night. Parking OK too - which was a must for us. Value for money? Doubtful but it is a seller's market.

Very easy to find, a friendly welcome. Went that extra Mile to help as I forgot a vital part of clothing for going to a wedding but helped and saved my day. I have stayed in some of the finest hotels in the world and their room facilities would find it had to provide. Breakfast was included in my package... More

Our long-awaited week in the Cotswolds began with a sleepless Saturday night at Five Mile. Maybe it was because we had the two front rooms...and it was a hot night...and we didn't want to close the windows... Every time silence settled, it was broken by a lorry rumbling through. We tossed and turned...all night long. But once the birds began... More

We stayed in the deluxe suite as all other rooms were booked. This was very spacious and comfortable, appearing recently refurbished and had outside seating in the attractive rear garden. Breakfast was excellent and Lorraine, the manager, was extremely friendly and helpful. Being Oxford, it wasn't cheap, but we had a great overnight stay.

We stayed here for a night last week and my father-in-law and brother-in-law stayed on an extra two nights. The hostess, Lorraine (I think) was very friendly and helpful. Our room was on the ground floor. Noise from the road was a bit of a problem and the room was a bit cramped, but at the price I can't complain.... More

The Five Mile B&B was a wonderful place to stay. We had an amazing room with our own patio. Having the small frig in the room was wonderful as well. Everything was clean and comfortable with all of the comforts of home. The bus stop is less than a block away and the bus goes right to the central city... More
