Our room was clean but bathroom very small behind a very flimsy louvred door. Shower weak and water took a long time to drain. Our room faced the road and despite double glazing the noise a of the road could be heard. Breakfast​ was continental style with cereal, fruit, small selection of cheese and cold meat. There was a toaster...

This is by far the finest accommodation I have found. Affordable and very friendly, I took my little Cavalier KC spaniel, 'Dixie' with me and we both thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Kate and Henry at The Acorn. The room was excellent and most comfortable for us with tea and coffee making facilities and a Television. Breakfast is a leisurely...

My room on 2nd floor overlooking the road (Iffley Road)) was good for viewing and early morning sunshine, very clean as the whole guest house, very quiet for a restful and quality sleep, bed very comfortable, and with light breakfast. The Location is superb for walking to different nearby restaurants, and general workout, its also very close to a bust...

Owners are very friendly and helpful. They also have a friendly dog! Rooms are tidy and clean. But simple. Quiet and nice area. Bus stop right outside. Breakfast is nice. They do English breakfasts. Yay! Stayed here twice and will definitely stay here again if I go back to Oxford.

What a lovely, wonderfully situated, well run property. Terrific value. Just had brief contact with Kate; was helpful, pleasant. Really a nice experience. Walked into the center of town both mornings, though if need be I could have hoped on the bus (stop just a few feet away from the Acorn).

I returned to the Acorn Guest House for a second time after about four years and am happy to say it is as I remember it. We had a comfortable room on the first floor at the back of the house overlooking the garden. It was not big but was clean and quiet and everything worked. There was plenty of...
