Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Location a couple of miles from the city but there is a bus stop close by. Parking on site is a bonus. Shops and restaurants about 15 minutes walk. Friendly welcome, easy check in. Homely room with all you need for a short stay. Good cooked breakfast.

The Claddagh guesthouse was fantastic. Mena's warm hospitality and attention to detail made our visit memorable. The guesthouse was clean, well-maintained, and had a lovely ambiance. The host was very sensitive and helpful to those attending the hospital too. Highly recommend for a pleasant stay.

The Claddagh is the most impeccable and secure guesthouse in Oxford! Mena is a motherly host - always helpful and kind. Breakfast is excellent. A must-stay if you are visiting one of the local hospitals. A 5 star ***** guesthouse, highly recommended. John Farrugia Mellieha, Malta

If you need a guest house in Oxford , look no further than Claddagh guest house . Mena, the proprietor, is the kindest host ever! Besides having a very clean house, she offers a lovely breakfast, changes the towels every day and cleans the rooms daily too. We were staying there for 11 days and felt like we were home away from our home because not only were we comfortable, but also felt safe and welcomed. I honestly cannot praise Mena enough for our stay there, because we had to be close to a hospital for health reasons and therefore it was important for us to have such a comforting place to stay in. You will definitely not be sorry you picked Claddagh guest house , 100%.

I stayed in this guesthouse because it was close to Headington Hospitals where I needed to attend training for a week. Excellent and central location for the hospitals in the area (5 mins by walk) as well as the historic city of Oxford (around 20 mins by car when no traffic). I rented a car (free parking available at the guesthouse) however its very easy to reach Oxford with public transport. Also close to Headington city centre by walk, with shops, restaurants and cafes around 10 to 15 mins away by walk. The guesthouse is small and offers breakfast only, however breakfast was divine - a proper classic English breakfast freshly prepared by the host herself, Mena, a very kind lady who made us feel very much at home. The rooms were very comfortable with all amenities, all details taken care of, and most of all spotlessly clean. All in all it was 5 stars for me and I highly recommend it. I would definitely stay here again if I ever need to return to the area

What a great little find this was, Mena was the loveliest lady, she made us feel very welcome . The room was spotlessly tidy, we were lucky enough to have a garden view that did not disappoint. As much love goes into the garden as the house. Breakfast was a freshly cooked to order full English, I’m vegi and was catered for as well, fresh pot of coffee, other options were there for the picking, delicious. 8 minute walk to Churchill hospital which was very handy, off road free parking. Bed made and towels changed daily. Thank you Mena for your kindness, you made a stressful stay in Oxford so much more bearable.

A lovely place to stay - Mena is a friendly, helpful host and my room was extremely comfortable and clean. I enjoyed a good breakfast and it was easy to get in and out of central Oxford for sightseeing, a short bus ride from a stop just round the corner. I'll be back if I visit Oxford again!

We had a wonderful stay at Claddagh Guest House when we came to visit our son in Oxford. Our room in Claddagh was beautiful. Great location to explore the City of Oxford. Mena was a wonderful host and the breakfast was excellent. The presentation of the guest house and the gardens is exceptional. Looking forward to going back to Claddagh when we visit Oxford again. Many Thanks Charles & Geraldine

I stayed here for a total of eight days in an immaculately clean, upmarket, well furnished, quiet and substantial room with gorgeous views of the manicured garden and an ensuite bathroom to die for when attending my son's graduation. Mena, (the best hostess ever), bent of backwards to be helpful at all times, even serving me filter coffee outside of breakfast hours after a long journey when I asked for some on my return after a few days away. The breakfasts are superb and worthwhile taking as you certainly will not need to eat lunch. Such a shame thought that shoes aren't removed when in the house by some guests, as this is a property deserving of an immense amount of respect. It was a paying privilege to stay here, but book early as this establishment is usually full!

Mena is the perfect hostess. She is incredibly friendly and is a great cook (her breakfasts are wonderful). Nothing is too much trouble for her. I have stayed twice with her, also for a longer period and I never got tired of our little conversations :-) Looking forward to my next trip!
