Positives: - Great value - Nice breakfast - Courteous owners - Clean room - The location is reasonable for getting into central Oxford, if you don't mind a short walk Negatives: - I didn't need to park, but I think finding someone to park might need some effort - Rooms are a little tight This is a good, basic budget...

This guest house is nice and clean, shower in the rooms, and comfortable bed. Came with free breakfast, nothing fancy, but with everything you need to start in the morning and in a new day. It's just an approx. 15 minutes walk from the city centre. Or a short taxi-drive to the station. We walked and used the taxi, both...

Not easy parking so arrive early! Warm welcome, unsure of safety as we had the same front door key which also worked for our bedroom? However, basic room, clean but well kept. Quite room to say on main transport link. Approx 10min walk into the heart of oxford, so quite a good location for budget hotel. Sleep was good, bed...

Thank you for your review which we appreciated you taking the time to write. The keys which you expressed doubt about are individually cut hence the £50 replacement charge if you lose them, so there is no issue with the security side of the business. We are sorry that you feel we are too much of a budget establishment for...

Located on a key route into Oxford centre this hotel is only a 10 minute walk into main centre of town. Very little traffic noise though as windows well insulated. Small car park for only 9 cars is a slight problem with 24 rooms but we were successful in getting a spot and even had cars moved around for us...

Stayed 3 nights in a basic room, well provided with sink, TV, tea&coffee things and a comfortable bed. Paid the minimum so had the bathroom down the hall, but that was fine and worked out well. Excellent quality breakfast included with the price. Relatively easy to walk anywhere from its location, including the city centre, the railway station, and Cowley...

The guest house is situated on a main road and is a 20 minute walk from oxford centre and we were able to park in the car park for free. The guesthouse had dated decor which is not offensive and serves its purpose. The road noise from our room was terrible and actually kept us awake through the night.

Recently stayed at this b&b for a weekend away, it's in a great location with the history and shops all within a 20 minute walk. The room was very nice with a comfy bed, pillows weren't great though. Shower pressure was poor. I would have had a much more pleasant stay if I had actually been able to get some...
