Stayed here for a full week, very homely chilled out place with very welcoming and helpful staff. Can't complain about anything from the breakfast to the Parking. And one of the cheaper hotels in the area, would recommend to anyone looking for accommodation in this area

Leanne could not have been more helpful or friendly. She made us feel very welcome and very kindly offered us a lift to the nearest pub for dinner, however we decided to walk as it was only 10 mins! Her directions were spot on.

This location is very close to the Harwell campus, easy to find (however a car or a taxi is needed). Very clean and quiet ; good wifi connection. The room at the 1st floor in the main house are quieter (away from the entrance and the breakfast room). Good breakfast.

I stayed here during a meeting I attended at the DLS. The guesthouse is only 2 miles from the Research complex and easy to find. It's also not too far from Oxford I believe it's only 15 miles. The double room was reasonably sized and the bed was comfy. They have coffee/tea making facilities in the rooms and double doors...

Good B&B for the price. Standard/clean rooms. If in the annex then you get the noise from the road which is constant unfortunately. They also seemed a little bit disorganized when I arrived and had to pop across to the other building (by car) to find out what room I was in. Apart from that it was fine for one...

This is our second visit to Greensands and again we stayed in the Annexe. We were again very pleased with our room and its amenities, although we could have perhaps have had a lighter duvet (being warm nights). The breakfast was varied, with a good cooked "course" and the young lady serving us was delightful and so ready to please....

Firstly, I didn't stay at this Guest House: I cancelled my booking (due to ill health) within the cancellation period allowed by their booking terms and conditions. There then followed a series of phone calls and emails during which I was bounced between Greensands and their booking agency (Eviivo - there is a whole thread on Trip Advisor advising people...

This B&B is fantastic. Very clean with very friendly staff. Little bit off the beaten track but well worth using as close to main roads and central to the towns of Didcot & Wantage. Ample parking, lovely food & plenty of it.

A bit difficult to find in the dar along a busy road but once found, what a delight! Very low key but welcoming, spotlessly clean, warm and very helpful when we turned up later than planned. Directed us to a great village pub within walking distance and after a quiet night's sleep, we came down to a generous and well-cooked...
