A quick skip through the many reviews for this property confirms the enthusiastic appreciation guests have for this excellent Oxford B&B. It is welcoming, comfortable and immaculately clean. We stayed for three nights and confirm all that others have said about it.
Oxford is not a car-friendly city, and as a tourist it can be difficult to negotiate and a nightmare to find parking. One of the great virtues of Burlington House Hotel is that it is very easy to locate, a block or two down from the ring road and clearly signed. Parking is free and directly beside the hotel. The local bus service is frequent day and night, and takes you to the city centre in ten minutes. Walking round Oxford from the centre is easy and there are good maps available from the tourist information office.
The hotel is, as all the reviews say, clean and a period property that has been well modernised. Our bathroom was up-to-date with an excellent power shower. A minor niggle is that there was no conditioner in the bathroom.
The bed in our room (No 1) was very big and deeply comfortable.
We looked out along the Banbury Road towards the Summertown shopping centre and the city centre and with triple glazing there was no noise from the road.
We were welcomed and given all the helpful information we needed for our stay. The fresh orange juice we were offered on arrival was welcome after a journey from London.
In terms of value for money it must be hard to beat.
We have no reservations about recommending Burlington House Hotel and if our best friends were going we would probably say to them... don't expect enormous rooms. Our room was perfectly fine but not large - there may be other larger rooms in the property. The stairwell is wallpapered and the dado and doors are painted in a Farrow and Ball grey which may make it appear narrower than it is. Similarly the breakfast room is quite small. These are trivial observations and hardly affected our comfort. It is possible that guests may find them adding to the coziness of their stay.
The quality and choice of the breakfast was excellent.
Nes, as others have observed, is helpful and willing and charmingly makes it clear that he is always available to make guests as comfortable as possible.
