“Great location, friendly, clean and tidy”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We stayed for a 3 night mini-break. The location is fab right next to bus stops for the city and only a mile or so from Summertown which has nice shops and restaurants - note there aren't any of these directly near the B&B but the buses are every 10 minutes so no problem. Parking is right outside, the room was clean and tidy and the owner friendly. Breakfast was very nice too.

Our room was very warm and the road noise meant opening the window was annoying, but the owner had kindly provided a fan which was very welcome.

Coming from the north of England I expect a little more for my money but I understand that for Oxford the price of this establishment was very reasonable!

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

The room was very spacious, comfortable and pristine. We had clean towels every day. The room had access to the back garden. A mini fridge in the room was a definite plus. The bathroom though comfortable, the wash basin was small.

The breakfast was amazing with a choice of full English, continental pastries, cereal, fresh fruit and juice.

The land lady was very accommodating with regard to check in/out times, room preferences, luggage storage etc. I would definitely stay there again and I recommend it without reservation.

Room Tip: Room to the back on the ground floor.

We stayed here when visiting someone who is a student and lives in Summertown. It was a perfect location especially as the bus route is right outside and they are frequent taking you straight into Oxford through Summertown. The owner was really helpful allowing us to leave our car from Friday morning to Monday afternoon. The rooms are a little old fashioned but the bed was comfortable. The breakfasts were excellent and served with a friendly smile.

Room overlooking the street was rather hot, kind of plain. Breakfast was good. Straight bus ride into downtown Oxford and sufficient off-street parking so we could drive into the country (Blenheim Palace, the Cotwolds). Good talk with other guests, visiting scholars.

Stayed here for one night before an early start the next morning.

The room had a flatscreen TV with coffee and tea making facilities. There was a small en suite bathroom. The double bed was nice and comfy.

It was good value for a night's stay, but if you were staying longer than a weekend you'd probably want a bigger room with a few more perks in it.

I was unable to sample breakfast as I had to leave early, but the kind woman who runs this B&B allowed me to help myself to a muffin and yoghurt on my way out.

The only niggle I have is that as you are next to a busy main road, every time a lorry, bus or heavy vehicle went by the house would shake and vibrate for a while after. Which I guess can't be helped, to be fair.

My wife and I were visiting a relation in Oxford so having read some reviews on boarding houses around the Oxford area we thought we would give the five mile view a try, from the time we arrived to departure we were looked after, the bedroom was just right comfortable bed tea and coffee and biscuits in room good nights sleep, THEN breakfast what a treat everything you could wish for beautifully cooked English, juice, coffee and toast.
