Great wee spot, lovely rooms with extremely comfortable beds. Feels like a hotel. Great breakfast menu lots of variety and the owners are very nice people and a good laugh. Away from the business of the town but still easy access to the center.

We were showed to our room which was spotless and beautifully made up. We were just in Oxford on short notice for a one night... More

We were there for a weekend here and Karen -owner- was taking excellent care of things so that we could enjoy our stay in Oxford at best. Well located, comfortable room and bed, small bathroom but just enough and excellent cooked breakfast with lots of options. I definitely recommend it!

Five Mile View Guest House is small but gives a perfect base to explore Oxford. It has free parking and is close to a bus stop to get into the city centre. We ordered a taxi which cost about £6. Breakfast was excellent with all tastes catered for and Marilyn was very friendly and welcoming.

Marilyn, the owner of this B&B, agreed readily to store our luggage well before checkin time. She greeted us at the door, recognized us by name, and helpfully insisted on carrying up our bags herself. Plenty of flyers for local attractions in the foyer. The room was tiny--just enough room to get around the bed and sit in the comfy... More

Lovely little guest house, the landlady was very welcoming and helpful, serving a lovely full breakfast if desired, the rooms are clean and comfortable, maybe a little small but are adequate for putting your head down after a busy day out, Just don't forget to use the blackout blind otherwise you will be woken early with the sun shining through!!!...
