I have found this gueat house to be reasonably priced and felt that was value for mone. I like quiet atmospheric surroundings. The guest house has very nice, attentive and professional staff and they seemed to be very professional throughout my stay here. I also enjoyed my breakfast. Overall, check in and check out was a straightforward process! Cheers!

Parking was shockingly bad. Was told it was OK to block another guest in, but was then woken at 5.15am and told to move my car so that other guest could get out. Totally Unacceptable and Furious, and couldn't get back to sleep, and had important, intensive business to do that day. Guests in the room above were noisy, and...

Well maintained rooms, clean toilets and great service. Perfect for an overnight stay. Located close to Headington shops and bus station. Ideal if you're in town to visit the hospital/research center. A bit expensive.

I have stayed at the conifers many times I have a relative who is in any out of the Nuffield hospital I I find all the staff very helpful with my needs of hospital visiting.

Very clean, very easy to find with great access to Oxford city centre, fairly priced and a cracking breakfast - just what you need to get you started on the sightseeing. Friendly staff who were happy to offer advice and directions.

Checking in was spoiled with uncertainty of gaining access as reception closes at nine. The room itself with its facilities is very basic and dated. The breakfast is very bland and untasty, possibly using cheapest ingredients. The last straw was payment. They would only accept cash without charge ; otherwise, there is 2-5% charge for card use.

I booked at this guest house, and having plans cancelled at the last minute i asked for the booking to be moved to another date, even offering to book another night all paid in advance. Firstly, you get to speak to the manager who gives no assistance as he cannot speak for the owner. So I put it all in...

I am sorry that your niece had to cancel her wedding at the last minute and that you were not aware that your mother had booked the room at The Conifers, until Peter phoned you on the evening when you were supposed to have checked in.
