Booked a triple room for an excellent price. The key was simply waiting for us in an envelope when we arrived, so I was quite disappointed that we weren't greeted properly, as a result, we were unsure of times for breakfast and where to go, etc, and therefore did not avail of the breakfast the 2 mornings we were there....

Booking was very easy. Warm welcome even though we were a little early. Simple room that was clean and comfortable, all of the usual facilities: t and c; wifi; clean towels etc. Breakfast was varied and tasty. We'd return happily.

My friend and I stayed on an overnight visit to Oxford. The location was perfect for us: the bus stop was right outside and it was less than 15 minutes into the city centre. I would recommend getting off at Summertown to have a look round on the way :-) Our twin room was very clean and the beds very...

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.

Great hostess. Very accommodating. Spacious room. Clean facilities. Quiet. Hairdryer (thank the gods). And usb plug for gadgets. No converters necessary. Only here for three days, but wish I could stay longer.

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...
