What a superb little guest house this is we turned up quite late after having spent the afternoon in Oxford, Sally welcomed us and asked up into the conservatory whilst she completed the paperwork. We said we were going to stay in our room as we had eaten and just wanted to rest before going to Hospital the following day,...

Hello, thank you for your review, we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. The television sizes do vary a little from room to room. We have a variety of pillows, do ask us if you prefer something softer or feather pillows, we are happy to provide them. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.

I have been staying at the Gables one day a week for the past month. The rooms are nice and big and have very comfortable beds. Lots of tea, coffee and biccies available in the rooms. The WiFi is great and free parking is available. Breakfast is superb, the Full English sets you up for the rest of the day....

My husband and I were visiting Oxford as we had tickets for the theatre. After reading the reviews, we chose the Gables for our overnight stay. We arrived about 11.00 am and were able to park easily in their free car park. We were greeted by Sally, who took us into the conservatory to book in. We were offered free...

Very close to the town and good value for money. Lovely breakfast, very clean and homely atmosphere. Host welcoming and helpful with letting us know information about Oxford. Mattress soft and pillows fluffy. Everything we needed was provided (dressing gowns were a nice touch).

I have chosen the Gables a few times, both for business trips and for holidays, and it is without any doubt one of the best places to stay if you visit Oxford. Rooms are very comfortable, breakfast is amazing and prices are very reasonable. 100% recommended! And it is just 25 min walking to the town centre or 10 min...

We had an overnight stay as my daughter had a uni interview the following morning. We had the twin room at the top of the house which was lovely. There was a bath in the ensuite which was particulary welcome as we had had a freezing cold journey by bus from the rail station (the bus stops opposite the b&b)...

Decided to take a short break in Oxford & the Gables Guest House was perfect. On arrival we received great advice on potential places to eat dinner which was much appreciated. Even better when our host booked the venue and a taxi. Thanks!!!

Sally looked after us and was welcoming to her B&B. This was a special occasion for my partner Claire who I proposed to on the night at a local pub Bear and Ragged Staff, which was also a lovely place. Sally made sure my roses were looked after and strategically placed them in the room while I did my bit!!...

We had the king size room which was quite comfortable. Special touches included fresh roses, cognac and chocolate. Breakfast was superb. The neighborhood is quite pleasant and easily accessible by bus though we usually walked into town, a two mile trek.
