Firstly, the staff at the lakeside were so warm and kind, and were very helpful with any queries raised. On top of this, the breakfast gave you the option of fruit, yogurt, cereal, juice, as well as many cooked breakfasts incl. veggie options. The shower room seemed very modern, was very clean and the shower itself was incredible!! Only problem...

This guest house is very convient about a 10 minute walk into Oxford centre. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Warm welcome and breakfast is fabulous. Would warmly recommend it and we will certainly use Lakeside again.

This Bed and Breakfast is well located on a major bus route into the city centre. If you are up for a bit of a walk it is not too far for that either. The room, en suite, and breakfast were all up to a good standard. The service was friendly and efficient. This will definitely be on my list...

Great location, in a lovely city. A 10-15 minute walk into the center, there is a picturesque walk along the Thames which takes and extra 5 mins but was worth it. Ample room to park, breakfast was lovely. All in all no complaints and would definitely return.

Pubs and restaurants with 10 mins walk. Oxford town centre 15 mins walk away. Dani and Martin and family and Rosie the dug are welcoming hosts. Rooms...

Lakeside has its pros and cons. The clean up staff were very sweet, welcoming us as we arrived early in the day. Our room was on the top floor which I would not recommend. Stairs are steep and the bathroom is a floor level down (both rooms #5 and #6 have baths below) as well as small room size. We...

We arrived quite early but our room was ready for us and we were given a friendly welcome by Daniela. Our room was large, comfortable and pristine as was our bathroom. The location was only a 10 minute walk in to Oxford, ideal for us. We would thoroughly recommend the establishment.

Room was small with an attached miniature bathroom, but worked fine for me. I was in Room 2 which was probably noisier than rooms further up. Good breakfast choices. Parking is very tight - to the extreme! No common area other than the breakfast room which is always set for breakfast (so you really can't sit in there). Be sure...

The guest house was full the night we stayed but no problem parking and there was a note on the front desk to leave keys if blocking another car and walking out to the nearby city centre. We were in room 1 - ground floor and facing the road - not great if you're a light sleeper who likes the...
