This is a quaint B&B right in the heart of Oxford. It is the perfect location to explore the city on foot however we had a room at the front which was noisy with passers by well into the night.
Our room was an ensuite double room right at the top of the building. The narrow staircase made it difficult to bring up the luggage. The room and ensuite were basic but clean. The bed was very comfortable.
The proprietors were very nice and friendly.
Unfortunately I have to list he negatives. Our room ceiling was exceptionally low which was terrible for my husband at 6'4". The shower had no power whatsoever and wasnt exactly warm. The bathroom was so small only one person could be in there at a time.
Breakfast was only continental so we opted to miss it and go in search of a full english at one of the many Oxford cafes.
To sum up this is a nice guest house and very central however I feel the £110 per night was a bit over the top for what we got. I would have felt happier paying £80 per night. My advice would be to shop around as there are plenty of nicer hotels in Oxford in around the same price range especially if you take into account the continental breakfast offering and lack of parking. By the time you pay in a cafe for a full Englsh and add in the cost of parking there are much nicer options for the price.
