1. A shared toilet and a shower room with a toilet 2. But it's cold because jt has one little heater below the window 3. The owner lady is humourous and kind so I gave 4 instead of 3. 4. Great location !!!

Location is great right on the edge of the city centre it takes ten minutes to walk to the very center of the city. Parking options: The Train station car park is across the road so very convenient but £15-£20 a... More

The guest house is self-catering. It was very clean and fine for what I needed. Wi fi worked, as did TV. second morning there was no hot water in the shower. The place is right opposite the station and it is a short walk into city centre. If you don't want to walk, there are buses leaving from the station... More

Down in Oxford for the weekend. Surprised how expensive the place was when looking for digs! Ended up in one of the cheapest (which still seemed very expensive for just a couple of nights). Location is excellent although parking is a problem. Ended up in the Park & Ride which was cheap but a 15 minute walk away. The digs... More

This B and B is only 2 minutes walk from the train station and 10 minutes into the town centre. Very local indeed. The room was very good and the bathroom facilities were good and clean. On the other hand, there should be hand wash available in the bathroom are. But overall very decent B and B.

Didn't expect much from a 2 star guest house but it wasn't a place I'd recommend to anyone. Stayed It was clear the owners put little effort in cleaning the place. Toilets were grim, cups to drink from were dirty, bed sheets still had stains from God knows what. Worst of all the room we had stayed had a serious... More

This is a cheap and basic guest house. It was reasonably clean and the bed was just about okay with a soft and sagging mattress but clean sheets and warm enough. But there was only a single small shower room and one additional toilet - both located down stairs from the rooms. Owners obviously chosen to maximise income by having... More

This guest house is perfect if you're looking for somewhere in Oxford that's quite reasonably priced but central and if you're not too concerned about getting breakfast. My single room was nicely furnished, clean and had everything I needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again.

Having read the reviews. It's fair to say I was slightly nervous about staying. But I was pleasantly surprised. We had room z. Nice homely double room with en suite. Great got powerful shower. Clean tidy room. Only thing I would say would be to check the towels before use. Or take your own. Overall would certainly stay again supervised.... More

The Becket Guest House is affordable lodging for the low-budget traveler. If you're used to three star hotels, inns or bed and breakfasts and up, you'll probably want to pass on a stay here, but if you're looking for a safe place to sleep with basic amenities it's worth considering, especially if you have a small budget and you're looking...
