I wanted to stay at Oxford University on my trip to the area. I was only going to be there 2 nights, but I really thought it would be more interesting than staying at a hotel. I knew I would be staying in a dorm room so I kept that in mind with my expectations. The staff was very nice and answered all my questions and helped me transition into British customs. I had a room with two beds (a friend had hoped to join me, but her plans changed). The beds were twin beds and the linens were simple. My only frustration was the pillows which were very flat and small. I grabbed the one from the other bed to make it more comfortable. The room was bare- no television provided. The bathrooms were in the hall. The sink and tub/shower were in a room separate from the toilet. When I had to use the toilet I would have to go to another room to wash my hands.
Each morning they served a full breakfast. The staff in the dining room was very nice and the food was great. Since it was between terms, there may have been reduced options, but I was able to get the breakfast I wanted. The Porter was very nice and gave me some tips on where to go and what to see. The College was in walking distance of the University buildings and museums. The wifi was free, but spotty. You had to login to a webpage each time you used it. Sometimes it would remember me and worked better on my smartphone than on my laptop. Since my trip was in winter, I didn't worry about AC. The heat worked perfectly and my room was very comfortable.
