We were in town to watch Ole Miss baseball and wanted a place in walking distance to the campus. This was cheaper than the hotel downtown and was my first B&B experience. Kieth, the owner, was welcoming, helpful and accommodating and the staff was charming and professional. The breakfast was ample and different each morning and we enjoyed several meals...

We stayed at the 5 Twelve for a basketball game. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go--the square and campus. Great location and great price. Breakfast was wonderful, and the owners were so accommodating and friendly. Room was perfect!

This place has it. Walking distance from Square Bookstore and Ole Miss with free parking and a friendly owner. Our room was comfortable but not elegant or spacious, exactly what we expected. The homemade apple butter at breakfast was a real treat.

What a perfect Bed and Breakfast! This 100+ year old house has a great southern charm. The rooms are big and have everything you need. The beds have a 1 year old Tempurpedic mattress that slept great. The breakfast was just as good. This is not a place for kids but a great peaceful place that is walking distance to...

The location was great, quiet, clean, and staff was pleasant. Unfortunately, the same breakfast was offered each day. Keith, the owner, was very helpful about the places to visit and shared the history of Oxford, which is a neat little town with a old-time square and close-by great restaurants in addition to the University of Mississippi. It had lovely outdoor...

We had a great visit at The 5 Twelve. The staff members were extremely accommodating. Keith, the owner was friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, equidistant from Ole Miss and the Court House square. It is a beautiful town. We walked a lot and were happy to put our feet up at The 5 Twelve. Delicious breakfasts. Loved the...

Went February 2016 not knowing what to expect. Found 512 clean, the bed wonderfully comfortable, unique design of rooms; upstairs had the bedrooms each with private bathrooms; downstairs hosted the parlors and dining room; because the bed was like heaven, I only made it to breakfast once, but my husband had o.j,, eggs of his choice, bacon, sausage, fruit and...

We stayed there for 1 night during Thanksgiving week. The location is great for visiting Oxford and Ole Miss etc. The place just seemed a little tired, got the impression that it had been a great B'n'B a few years back but that maybe it just going through the motions now. Difficult to put a finger on it! Breakfast wasn't...

The 5 Twelve is not only conveniently located to the town square, but it's just far enough away to be able to relax and have some peace and quiet. Sit on the large porch with a drink or kick back inside with some friends and certainly don't miss the home southern breakfast.

This was one of the biggest disappointments of our 3 week tour of the South East. There was a complete lack of hospitality - something you expect when you stay in a BnB. The room was very small and plain. Breakfast was fairly poor. The fruit on the fruit plate was mostly brown. It was basic and budget. For the...

“We stayed in Room #1 which is large with a king size bed and one of the larger baths. It is right off of the lovely balconey.”

“There are only five guest rooms and a third floor studio suite. Because of the 5 Twelve's central location, closer to the Ole Miss campus and the historic Oxford Courthouse Square than any other hotel in town, each room is a premium. And breakfast is a big plus.”
