I do not unnecessarily want to berate the owners of this business but, the level of accommodation offered here is well below standard. I stayed as part of a group who had booked other rooms in the guest house for two nights to attend a wedding. Everyone in the group felt disappointed by the low standard accommodation and actually couldn't...

I booked this BnB for business and was immediately disappointed as soon s I arrived. I arrived to the property at 7:30pm and the place was in total darkness. After calling the telephone number outside I was told that somebody would be there to let me in within 5-7 minutes. After waiting 15 minutes I was actually let in by...

The guest house is a longish walk from the city centre but pretty convenient none the less. The on site car parking is a real bonus, especially in Oxford. Taxis are easy to get and the fare was £8 to the centre. On a bus route too. The family room was a good size, clean and well appointed with plenty...

I stayed here while on a weekend trip to Oxford. From the outside it does look like any other normal house, but from when I stepped inside, I felt very welcome. As you would expect from a BnB, the room (single) was very small, but at the same time very comfortable. My room (Room No 1) I will make clear...

Lovely, clean, comfortable B&B, with a great location easy to get to the centre by public transport. Staff were very helpful and willing to go the extra mile. Would definitely stay there again. Kitchen staff were very efficient and food was very nice with quite a wide selection of food for breakfast.

Check in is listed as 1 to 4. We arrived at 3:30 and had to call as no host on premise. It took 15 minutes for the owner to arrive. We were scolded when the asked "where have you been?" Although we were quoted 79 pounds for bed and breakfast, due to internet booking error, we were charged 76.5 pounds...

Dear Guest Thank you taking time to write something unfair - the lighter version is in the Booking.com and everyone is welcome! Why there is no word stinky in the Booking.com review? Because an offensive review can be removed in the Booking. com, but not in Tripadvisor Disregarding the place where this guest left the review, we do not accept...

We arrived at Harris Guest House quite early on the sarurday and were very pleased that they accommodated us, letting us check in early and leaving our bags. Unfortunately the plus points tailored off somewhat from then on. When checking in we had an awkward conversation about breakfast and what we wanted which followed on to the morning when you...
