Stayed here for two nights and was very happy with it - clean, comfortable, very friendly, great breakfast with lots of choice. They let me leave my backpack for most of the day after I had checked out because I wasn't due to leave Oxford till later in the day. About 15-20 walk to the town centre - there is...

Hotel is situated a short walk from the centre, the room was good staff were excellent, breakfast topped it off nicely. 2 minor issues the shower pressure is not good but the whirlpool bath makes up for it , and sorry if the next people had the same problem as I forgot to let them know when we signed out,...

Stopped for one night with my other half. We were in room no. 7 with the four poster bed. Hotel spotlessly clean, staff very pleasant, breakfast lovely. Ideal location as its a short walk to the centre of Oxford. Only downfall was the shower, not a lot of pressure but it wouldn't stop me returning! Lovely quirky little hotel!

Shower pressure is horrible. Rooms look like 50 years ago. Bed is very hard. Bar service is very slow (gentleman took the order and than was gone for like 5 minutes or so) breakfast is okayish. Nice choice of freshly baked warm items, unfortunate the quality was not that great. It was convenient for the our purpose of visiting Oxford,...

I booked here with some apprehension, as this was the cheapest hotel offering bed and breakfast that I could find in Oxford, even though it was still above my allowed room rate. It was my first stay, for a while, in anything other than a branded or 3/4 star hotel. I needn't have worried. Yes, the hotel is small, and...

If you are looking for a nice, home-like feeling for a hotel which is reasonable in price, great location with on-site parking, including a very helpful nice staff, then this hotel a vey good choice. It is not an actual hotel where you can purchase 3 meals a day. It is really a B&B. Although you might have to wait...

Weekend break to Oxford. Hotel location ideal for city with good parking facilities. Arrived too early for room so just booked in and left car. Greeted by member of staff who advised the No3 bus opposite side of road would take us straight into town. Yes it does - 15 mins later we were in city. Realising ease of distance...

The location was good (3 minutes until bus stop and 5 minutes of travel). The room was Ok, the bathroom needs some updates. I am used to use a shower, than a bath. The reception was fine and the lady that prepare the hot meals of the breakfast was nice. The hotel could write some instructions of which bus to...

We stayed one night here. Room was clean, with toileteries, clean towel, old fashioned hair drier, trouser press, kettle, tea, coffee, biscuits. Shower works alright, but it was in a rather akward position that we need to either squat/sit in the bath to use it. Hotel's decoration is charmingly 'kitsch'. I meant it in a nice way, sort of Eastern...

Great for Oxford small hotel ...among the guest houses of Oxford this does seem more like a hotel with a good sized breakfast room, separate small room with small counter that looked like it could be a bar, and a separate small sitting room with sofas and plugs so you could potentially sit somewhere other than you room. Hotel was...
