Very clean, very easy to find with great access to Oxford city centre, fairly priced and a cracking breakfast - just what you need to get you started on the sightseeing. Friendly staff who were happy to offer advice and directions.

Checking in was spoiled with uncertainty of gaining access as reception closes at nine. The room itself with its facilities is very basic and dated. The breakfast is very bland and untasty, possibly using cheapest ingredients. The last straw was payment. They would only accept cash without charge ; otherwise, there is 2-5% charge for card use.

I am sorry that your niece had to cancel her wedding at the last minute and that you were not aware that your mother had booked the room at The Conifers, until Peter phoned you on the evening when you were supposed to have checked in.

Stayed at the Conifers Guest house for 2 days. The place is located a few kms from the town centre. I believe there are buses to the town - however we took the easier option of taxis and it would cost u 5 pounds a way. We stayed at the room on the 1st floor (Room no. 1). There was... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in June 2016. Its a small B&B, about 3 km away from city centre but extremely clean and comfortable. Mike, the manager was very helpful (we had to extend the stay from 1 night to 2 and he helped out). The breakfast is very good- fresh bread, eggs to order and the rest of typical... More

We stayed in Conifers for a night to attend a graduation ceremony in one of the colleges.Great location with easy access to the city and the colleges. We stayed in their annex at the backyard/garden which is a very clean spacious room with an ensuite but the wifi didn't work in the room. Enjoyed the good hot breakfast.
